Porsche Services – Early Models

Required Every 7500 miles
  • Change Engine Oil and Filter (Turbo Engines Only)
  • While Porsche recommends a 7500 mile oil change interval for Turbos and a 15000 mile oil change interval for normally aspirated cars, we feel that shorter oil change intervals are important to the longevity of the engine (bearings, rings, valve train). We recommend synthetic oil changes every 5000 miles (8000 km).

Required Every 60000 miles
  • Manual Transmission: Change Oil
  • Automatic Transmission: Change Oil in Differential Other Required Maintenance
  • Brake Fluid and Engine Coolant should be replaced every two years regardless of mileage. If the car is tracked, the brake fluid should be changed at least once a year. However, in some PCA regions, to pass a DE Event Tech Inspection, you must provide proof that your brake fluid has been changed within 3 months of the event.
  • On 944s, the timing belt and balance shaft belt should be changed at 45,000 miles. For 968s, they should be changed at 60,000 miles. For both the 944 and 968, the belt condition and tension should be checked every 15000 miles. The 15,000 mile inspection interval assumes that the car has bee driven on a regular basis. If your timing belt is two years old and you have not reached the 15000 mile inspection interval, the timing belt tension and condition should be checked then and once per year after that.
  • For 944s it is unusual for a water pump to last significantly past 100000 miles. For that reason, we recommend replacing the water pump at every other belt change (90000 miles). For 968s, it may be possible to extend the life of the pump to the second belt change at 120000 miles. However, you should monitor for indications of a failing water pump closely after 100000 miles.
  • For timing belt and balance belt tensioner and roller, we recommend removing the rollers & spinning by hand at each timing belt replacement. If the roller is noisy, it should be replaced. All rollers should be replaced at every other belt change unless it’s an individual roller that was replaced during the previous belt change. For pre-1987 model 944s, the timing belt tension roller stud should be replaced at every other belt change.
