Utilizing official Porsche diagnostic equipment and tools, we guarantee that each maintenance service we offer is of the highest quality. On this page, we will provide a detailed explanation of all the maintenance intervals we recommend. These services are categorized based on either time or mileage for your convenience.

Porsche Oil Change

Porsche Oil Change - Every 5,000 miles/Annually

Many new Porsche owners believe the first service is merely an oil change. While a Porsche Oil Change is a crucial part of our Minor Maintenance service, we highly recommend opting for the full minor service package. Even the best-engineered vehicles, like Porsches, require comprehensive care. Skipping a complete check-up can mean missing critical issues that could affect your vehicle's performance and safety. Think of it like an annual physical: You wouldn't just check your blood pressure and ignore other vital signs. Similarly, it's essential to give your Porsche a full 'inspection' to ensure its optimal performance and your safety. Our goal is to provide peace of mind that your Porsche is in perfect working order, eliminating any risk of mechanical failure that could lead to accidents or worse. So, for the health of your Porsche, and your peace of mind, we strongly advise a complete Minor Maintenance service over just an oil change. Either way, we recommend an oil service every 5,000 miles or annually. You'll find a detailed explanation below in the Minor Maintenance section, describing why this oil service is so crucial. Additionally, you will see that under each maintenance type we include a list of items that are performed; the difference between the oil change and the Minor Maintenance list is significant.

Porsche Oil Change Detail

  • Electrics
    • Diagnosis system: Reset maintenance interval
  • Under the Vehicle
    • Drain engine oil
    • Replace the drain plug and drain plug gasket
  • Engine compartment
    • Change the oil filter and fill the engine oil (Every 5,000 miles/Annually)

Porsche 10,000 Mile Service

Porsche Minor Maintenance - Every 10,000 miles/Annually (We recommend 5,000 miles)

Our annual minor maintenance service at HBi Auto is meticulously executed by our trained Porsche technicians using OEM Porsche parts and Motul fluids that exceed Porsche's own standards. While Porsche recommends an oil change every 10,000 miles, we suggest doing it every 5,000 miles for optimal engine health. Don't be misled into thinking that low mileage exempts you from regular maintenance. Oil can degrade due to moisture absorption, leading to contamination and potentially causing damage to the engine, rod bearings, and even the catalytic converters over time. Similarly, rubber seals and components can suffer from dry rot when a car sits idle for too long. Keeping your Porsche in motion and its fluids fresh is the best way to preserve its performance and longevity.

3 Year 30,000 Mile Service

Porsche Maintenance - Every 30,000 miles/3 Years

At HBi Auto, our specialized 3-year/30,000-mile service goes above and beyond our standard 5,000-mile/annual minor service. We include a full coolant system drain, flush, fill, and bleed to address the issue of water pump failures commonly found in Porsches. Our procedure mitigates the effects of corrosive coolant on the water pump's internal shaft and bearings, extending its lifespan. For Macan and Cayenne models, we strongly advocate for a transfer case fluid replacement—a step that can substantially improve the component's longevity. For turbo models, we replace the spark plugs every 3 years or 30,000 miles. After this period, plugs can deteriorate due to moisture from lack of use or mileage, affecting the air-fuel mixture. It's crucial to address this to prevent potential catalytic converter failure due to excessive unburnt fuel. Our highly trained Porsche technicians utilize OEM Porsche parts and superior Motul fluids that exceed Porsche’s standards, ensuring the utmost in vehicle care.

Additional Maintenance

Porsche Maintenance Additional Items

At HBi Auto, we offer a set of recommended maintenance tasks that go beyond standard guidelines, all aimed at proactive failure prevention based on our extensive experience.

  • Annually or every 10,000 miles: Perform an all-wheel alignment to avert premature tire wear and enhance driving performance.
  • Every 2 years or 15,000 miles: Opt for a fuel injection cleaning service. Given the high ethanol content in today's fuels, this can extend the lifespan of your injectors and prevent early fuel system contamination.
  • Every 2 years or 30,000 miles: For cars with hydraulic power steering, we recommend a fluid flush to avoid early pump failure. This low-cost service can save you money in the long term.
  • Every 6 years or 60,000 miles: Replace the drive belt to prevent breakdowns due to dry rot or fatigue.
  • Every 6 years or 60,000 miles: Given the water pump's frequent usage at this point, it’s advisable to replace it to minimize the risk of sudden failure.
  • Every 8 years or 80,000 miles: Replace ignition coils, which are prone to fatigue and cracking due to temperature fluctuations.
  • Every 8 years or 80,000 miles: Renew your shocks/struts, as they may begin to sag and affect alignment, compromising vehicle performance.

Trust our trained Porsche technicians for these specialized services, and rest easy knowing we use OEM Porsche parts and high-quality Motul fluids.
