Engine Oil Recommendation
1) Generally, you can find details of the manufacturer approvals on the oil containers or as a notice displayed by the retailer.
2) SAE viscosity class - Example: SAE 0W - 40
3) For all temperature ranges.
4) For the temperature range over --13 °F (-25 °C).
Always observe the following points:
Your Porsche partner will be pleased to advise you.
We recommend that you have the engine oil changed at your Porsche dealer, who has the required oils and the necessary filling equipment.
If you suspect an oil leak in the engine have your dealer check it out immediately.
All current engine oils are compatible with each other, i.e. when making an oil change it is not necessary to flush the engine if you wish to use a different brand or grade of oil.
Since, however, each brand of oil has a special composition, you should, if possible, use the same oil brand if it becomes necessary to top up between oil changes.
Porsche engines have long intervals between oil changes. You can make best use of these long oil change intervals by using multigrade oils since these are largely independent of seasonal fluctuations in temperature.
