Porsche Oil Change

At 3,000 rpm, a Porsche piston moves back and fourth 100 times every second. Pistons---and other engine parts---survive this brutal routine due primarily to a very thin, cushioning layer of oil. The better that cushion is, the better the separation between moving parts is. Simply put... there's less friction. And less friction translates into a more durable engine. In contrast, allow particles from combustion, internal wear, and repeating heat cycles---heat that cooks the cushioning performance out of oil---to go unattended and an engine is guaranteed premature wear. In a nutshell, the smartest and simplest investment A Porsche owner can make in caring for their car is to change the oil & filter when it should be changed.

Porsche Crankcase Oil & Filter Change Intervals:

Normally aspirated engine - Synthetic oil at 5,000 miles

Fossil oil at 3,500

Turbo - Fossil oil at 3,000 miles

Transmission / Gearbox:

15,000 miles

   Best-Practice:   For high-end Porsche engine lubrication:

Reduce given intervals in half.

Get oil analysis done.

Several companies do this---search online.

Test results provide unusual insight to the internal status

of an engine.

Short Run:

There's always residual oil remaining in an engine, oil tank, hoses, and coolers after an oil change. Residual unwanted contaminants are of course in that residual oil. It's not necessary but beneficial engine care to "short run" an engine on occasion. This means changing the oil & filter, then running the engine for a short period with the fresh oil & filter. 25 to 50 miles. This allows the new oil to mix with the residual oil. Change the oil & filter again after this short run. Doing so removes additional residual contaminants from the engine's lubrication. Moving parts gain a cleaner cushion from doing this. And this translates into less friction... less wear... and so a more durable engine.

Run your engine & trans happy.

Schedule a GP oil & filter change sooner

than later.
