Why is a Regular Porsche Oil Change Important?
Although quick and simple, an oil change is one of the best things you can do for your vehicle. The power and speed of any Porsche sports car or SUV begins with the engine. Oil is an engine’s lifeblood and promotes cleaner, cooler, and more efficient performance. Read on to see what makes a Porsche oil change so essential!
Lubricates Moving Parts
Every engine is comprised of valves, pistons, and other moving parts that move rapidly and with great force. Without oil, these parts wear down over time, reducing engine performance and leading to the need for parts replacement—or even engine failure. Oil lubricates the engine and prevents excessive wear.
In addition to wear, friction between poorly lubricated engine parts creates heat. All engines create heat, but clean oil helps regulate temperature. Too much heat leads to engine failure. And once an engine fails, especially a high-performance Porsche engine, it can be expensive to get it back up and running safely and efficiently.
One of oil’s most important jobs is to catch dirt, dust, and other particles, and carry them to the oil filter. Over time, the contaminants caught by the oil begin to break it down, turning it to a sludgy substance. Routine oil changes performed by professionals help keep the engine clean and operating at its best.
Boosts Gas Mileage
Overheating is just one of many problems caused by insufficient lubrication inside an engine. Fuel economy also suffers. When an engine isn’t properly lubricated, it has to work harder and demands more fuel. Given time, a simple Porsche oil change can boost gas mileage by as much as 2%.
