Which Oil For My 2006 997 Carrera Cab?


Recommended Posts

I'm the proud owner of a 2006 Carrera cab/convertible.

- Witch oil would you recommend me to fill on the car on next service? Do not know about the importance, but it's a 6 speed manual transmission.

Sorry for my bad english, I'm a dane :-)

Love the English ..."Witch" is an ugly female with bad hair, a pointy hat, and a big ugly nose that flies around on a broomstick :) "Which" is a question that relates to "what item?", which I think is what you want to know.

Last updates in all the Porsche information indicate using 0W40 Mobil 1 Synthetic. That is what I use in my 997 TT.

change your own oil.

at last change I did 6qt of mobil1 15w50 plus 2qt of mobil1 5w50.

for winter I will do 4qt 15w50 mix with 4qt of 5w50, same mobile1.

Am curious why the "witch's brew " on the oil ? ( Couldn't resist the pun) Assuming you feel this mix is better than either of the multi weight oils you're using, how are you making that determination ?

some folks run 15w50 exclusively. it should work fine for summer when temperatures are above 60 degrees.

for winter 15w50 is way too thick when cold and it is bad for hydraulic lifters. so you need to dillute it. or run on 5w50 oil all winter long and in May change it to 15w50.

as of 'why' question - i just follow some already established ways how it gets done, it is not my know-how.

For the Northern European market is 0w-40 recommended, 5w-50 can also be used, but certainly not heavier. 10w-..... is already too thick at cold start in winter temperatures.
