DIY oil change and warranty considerations?

Recommended Posts

Given that I used Mobil 1 0w40 and a factory oil filter would changing the oil/filter early (15k km's versus 30k km's) void the factory warranty?

Would they even know unless I tell them?

I was thinking of doing it now at 15k km and just before the 30k km service...

As long as you follow the manufacturer's interval and use spec parts they have no claim to deny you warranty.

So the recommended interval can be taken as a minimum, changing the oil/filter twice as often is not frowned upon?

Part of the reason for asking is the dealer charges $385 for an oil/filter change.

Changing twice as often would still meet or exceed the manufacturers specifications. That all you need to worry about.

I have changed oil on all my Porsche's since the mid- 1970's (yeah I know I am old) - and I have never had a warranty claim denied.

Even when Porsche dealers charged $50 for an oil change I though it was outrageous - this is simple to do on Porsche's and always has been.

And needless to say, keep copies of all receipts, etc. for the oil, filter, and anything else you buy just in case they question it.

Agree, and when I did my oil change at 7500 miles, I also performed all the scheduled maintenance items for 20K miles and put all that info on some documentation and had it notarized as an extra precaution.
