Porsche – just the name makes heads turn. Beautiful handling, stunning design and perfect 10 performance make Porsches a joy to drive whether you’re cruising downtown or coasting through the Hill Country.
Fortunately, these cars are so well designed that Austin Porsche service isn’t needed too often. If you have a 2001 or newer Porsche model here are the maintenance intervals you need to keep in mind to keep your sports car on the road instead of in the shop.
Below is a quick guide with timeframes for when regular maintenance needs to be done on your Porsche in order to keep it running at optimal efficiency. Please refer to your owner’s manual or consult with a Porsche specialty shop for the exact needs of your model and year.
Change Engine Oil and Filter
Every 10,000 – 20,000 miles / every 1-2 years (typically older models can go longer between oil changes)
Change Spark Plugs
Every 24,000 – 60,000 miles / every 4 years
Change Air Filter
Every 24,000 – 80,000 miles / every 3-4 years (only vehicles that are 2005 or older require a new air filter every 24,000 miles)
Change Brake Fluid
Every 2 years (all models, all years)
Replace Drive Belt
Every 60,000 miles / 6 years
Replace Tire Sealant
Every 4 years
Of course these recommendations are for Porsches that are driven under normal conditions. If your Porsche is more of a showroom vehicle that doesn’t get driven much maintenance is still needed even if you don’t hit the mileage marks. If you ride in dusty areas or drive aggressively maintenance may be needed more frequently.
