Milwaukee Porsche Maintenance

While your new or new-to-you Porsche vehicle may come standard with first-class bells-and-whistles, all vehicles are still in need of regular maintenance to maintain them in their best condition. Of course the most important kind of maintenance is the regularly scheduled kind. Conversely when small issues go undiagnosed, they can grow over time. Knowing what’s best for your car can take an expert. Here are the most frequently asked questions we receive about Milwaukee Porsche maintenance.

    • The Check Engine Light

What does it mean to ‘service engine soon’?

Computerized dashboards are standard features in most modern cars and trucks. These include indicators and sensors to assist drivers in managing vehicle safety. Common reasons that your check engine light has come on include missing gas cap, time for an oil change, or even low tire pressure. This light also produces a computerized error code which is easily read by a diagnostic machine.

    • Porsche Oil Change – Milwaukee

When do I change my oil?

While many auto mechanics swear by the 3,000-7,000 mile or 3 month oil-change rule, this may not be true for you. The first suggestion is to check your car’s user manual. This will give you the most accurate answer, especially for new-ish models. On the other hand, however, the manual provides little guidance when it comes to your vehicle’s age, history, and wear. This more complete recommendation requires an expert’s insight. If your personal mechanic seems unsure, then phone your Porsche dealer for the best advice.

    • Porsche Tire Rotation

What’s the best time to get the tires rotated?

Your vehicle’s sole point of contact with the pavement are the wheels. This causes excessive wear and tear that must be distributed evenly between all the tires. After 6,000 to 8,000 miles, a tire rotation is highly advised. Rotation guarantees that your tires wear evenly. Note, also, that off-roading and 4WD, as well as personal driving habits may dramatically influence your tire rotation frequency and interval, outside of a regular Porsche tire rotation schedule.

    • Porsche Brake Pad Replacement

How long will my brake pads last?

The working life of your brake pad relies upon your typical driving habits and most especially, the operating environment. Based on heavy to moderate usage, brake pads are usually designed to last through 20,000-25,000 miles. Factors that can significantly reduce its life are frequent braking, braking at high-speed, elevated temperatures and driving on rocky terrain and uneven areas. On average, brake pads are designed to provide from 40,000 to 60,000 miles of pad life under normal driving conditions.

    • Porsche Fuel Filter

When should I replace my car’s fuel filter?

A clean fuel filter ensures optimal and trouble-free engine performance. Always consult your Porsche mechanic or automakers’ manual, but fuel filters typically can operate between twenty to forty thousand miles.

    • Porsche Engine & Ignition System

Why won’t my Porsche start?

Although there are various reasons why your Porsche won’t start, the usual culprit is the battery. For example, if your lights were left on, then its likely that the charge is out. One sign of a low charge is if it takes a moment to start the engine when you turn the key. There may be other reasons why your car won’t start, so it’s best to consult a certified Porsche mechanic.

    • Porsche Certified Maintenance

    • Porsche Brake Change

When do I need my brakes replaced?

Every auto care appointment should come with a standard inspection. A licensed Porsche mechanic will conduct a thorough inspection for any needed services. As brake quality is judged by size, look, and feel, this is the best way to check your brakes. Be sure to get squeaky brakes looked at by a professional, as it may be a symptom of a more significant problem.

    • Porsche Battery Replacement

What kind of preventive maintenance is necessary for my auto battery?

The normal car battery will last from 3 to 5 years, dependent upon use and care. The easiest way to avoid a battery problem is monitor the battery health of your vehicle. This most often takes place during a routine service inspection. Most car batteries, like other perishable items, have date of expiration clearly marked.
