As we mentioned, your engine relies on its oil, and Porsche vehicles may be prone to leak oil or have gunked up oil, especially if you drive aggressively. Over time, the oil throughout your engine will wear down, leak out, or become contaminated with particles. An oil change ensures that you have fresh, clean, working oil that is ideal for reducing friction in your engine and heat buildup for its components. We recommend that you follow the instructions on your owner’s manual to ensure that your oil continues to support the functionality and longevity of your engine and its individual components.
As you hug the turns in your Porshe, your tires are slowly losing their resilience — and over time, they can lose their grip altogether (or you could end up on the side of the road with a flat). We can replace your tires, rotate your tires (to improve tread wear and the balance of your vehicle), or upgrade your tires to all-season tires or performance tires. Make the most of your machine with tires that will keep up with the torque under the hood.
Fluid flushes should be performed regularly to ensure that your vehicle’s systems are operating smoothly. Whether it’s your brake line, your transmission system, your power steering, or your cooling system, we can flush the lines, replacing old, grimey, broken-down fluid with fresh fluid that will improve the longevity and performance of your Porsche’s components. Consult your owner’s manual or your mechanic for recommended flush service intervals for the various systems in your Porsche.
TIMING BELT REPLACEMENTS
Your timing belt is a heavy-duty, toothed, rubber belt that is essential to operate your vehicle. This belt controls the timing of the crankshaft and camshaft, as well as the opening and closing cycle of the pistons of your engine. Now, that’s an important job, and that’s why your timing belt must be replaced before it wears down or breaks. If you have a timing belt that is missing teeth or a belt that is on the cusp of breaking, then you have a hazardous component in your engine. A slipping timing belt can wreak havoc on your engine, and a broken timing belt will likely destroy your engine altogether — and that means that you’ll have costly repairs on your hands. We recommend that you swap out your timing belt before it is ever in danger of creating damage.
Your owner’s manual will have the best information for recommended timing belt replacement intervals. Take note, while you may want to have us inspect your timing belt to assess its condition, it’s often worthwhile to simply replace it instead — since the timing belt is built into the engine, we’ll have to do some time-consuming disassembly just to reach the component, so it’s often best to replace the belt (for both timeliness and cost-effectiveness) while we’re already under the hood.
