At Porsche Riverside Riverside, our Los Angeles Porsche dealer, we think it’s important for owners to fully understand the important of keeping up with their vehicle’s maintenance schedule.  Routine maintenance is imperative to preserving the integrity of your Porsche 911 – 996 Series.  Regular maintenance keeps your vehicle running like-new, and allows it to continue to provide the jaw-dropping performance you’ve come to expect from the Porsche name.

To keep your Porsche 911 – 996 Series running at its peak performance, it’s recommended to get an oil change every 15,000 miles or every 2 years.  In addition, your vehicle’s oil filter should be changed every 30,000 miles or every four years.

Spark plugs are an integral part of your vehicle’s engine; they’re small, but mighty. The spark that they emit creates the ignition for the combustion needed to start your car.  To keep your engine in tip-top shape, we recommended replacing the spark plugs every four years or 60,000 miles.

Routine Maintenance Is Integral To Keep Your Car Running Like-New

Like spark plugs, the importance of brake fluid cannot be ignored. Brake fluid plays a crucial role, transferring the force created when you press on the brake pedal directly onto the wheel hub.  The heat that is generated during braking can affect the brake fluid in your Porsche 911 – 996 Series, that’s why routinely flushing your brake fluid is vital; failure to keep up with this regular maintenance can result in brake failure!  We recommend that Los Angeles Porsche 911 – 996 Series drivers flush and replace their brake fluid every two years.

The coolant in your Porsche and its fuel filters don’t require any maintenance – one less thing you’ve got to worry about! When your vehicle is in need of maintenance, you can bring it in to the professionals at Porsche Riverside.  More than simply a car dealership, we offer one of the leading destinations for Porsche service in Rancho Cucamonga.
