Quick steps to avoid oil sludge buildup in your Porsche

MASTER MECHANICS EASY STEPS TO AVOID OIL SLUDGE BUILDUP IN YOUR PORSCHE Engine oil keeps your engine running smoothly by lubricating its parts and keeping it cool. Over time, however, pollutants and heat can turn the liquid into a thick gel. Unaddressed sludge can be the death of your engine. THERE ARE STEPS YOU CAN TAKE TO PREVENT OIL SLUDGE BUILDUP IN YOUR PORSCHE. FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTION IN MANUAL The best way to find out how often you should be changing your oil is by looking in your Porsche's manual. It should outline the maximum mileage or time between oil changes and the type of oil your vehicle requires. Owner's Manual A wrong oil may hinder your engine's performance and worsen buildup. PAY ATΤΕΝΤΙΟΝ ΤΟ ΤHE DASHBOARD When the "check engine" light is on, it's time to bring your Porsche in for inspection. o 100 120 You also want to be on the lookout for the "oil change" light. There could be a problem with the sensor, or the light may indicate that your vehicle has low oil pressure. CHECK THE OIL PAN While motor oil is a see-through yellowish liquid, engine sludge is a dark brown or black viscous goop. If you can make out the metallic walls of the oil pan, you're likely fine, even if the walls are covered in oil. If the gunk is so thick that you can't see the shininess of the metal, you have sludge. TAKE LONGER TRIPS If your car idles for long periods of time, the oil does not have a chance to heat and circulate properly. People who do mostly city driving or live within 15 minutes of work are more likely to see engine sludge. Consider getting your oil changed more often to lessen the likelihood of your oil turning sludgy. BRING YOUR PORSCHE IN FOR SERVICE By removing sludge, you may be re- opening broken rubber seals that were sealed causing further problems. When it comes to your engine, it's a good idea to play it safe and bring your Porsche in for professional maintenance. The technician can ascertain the extent of the sludge buildup and determine the health of your engine.
