Porsche Scheduled Maintenance

Getting the Most for Your Porsche Scheduled Warranty

Porsche offers four scheduled maintenance plans. These include critical mileage periods of 2 years/20,000 miles, 3 years/30,000 miles, 4 years/40,000 miles or 5 years/50,000 miles.

The beauty of having a Porsche scheduled maintenance plan is it controls your costs. You don’t have to worry that the cost of a 30,000 checkup will go up, as the price is guaranteed for that entire year you selected. You can also be sure that all repairs will use genuine Porsche parts.

When Porsche Maintenance is Not Covered by Warranty

If you have an older Porsche not covered by the warranty, keep in mind that the 60,000 mile scheduled maintenance can be quite expensive. And you don’t need to go to a dealership, but should probably rely on a specialist who better understands the vehicle.

Sticking to a maintenance plan is the best way to get the most out of your vehicle. Check through the manual for all recommended repairs, make a calendar and stick with it. If it’s been a while since you’ve had your car serviced, have a mechanic look it over to suggest what might need done. Make sure it’s someone you trust and that the repairs are needed.

A Porsche Technicians Secret: Checking the Spark Plugs

Want to know one of the best hacks favored by Porsche mechanics? Check out the spark plugs. They can be one of the best indicators of the quality of your engine. You should replace your spark plugs every 30,000 miles. Even new models should be replaced in less than 100,000 miles. This will prevent the spark plug from seizing, which can cause expensive damage to your engine. If you are changing the spark plugs yourself, make a special not of which spark plug came from which cylinder. Take notes with a pencil. This way you can tell which cylinder has a problem. And make sure each cylinder gets the right plug.
