Oil change question from new member


Recommended Posts

As a Porsche owner since 1964 I recently acquired a 996 TT my first 996. I figured I better get one before they took away my license and make me go to the AARP drivers education programs. Anyway I am wondering if I need to have the 996TT level to drain the oil or can I just raise it up in the rear to access the drain plugs. Appreciate your input and have read many topics and think there is a wealth of knowledge here at the forum. Thanks.

  • Use ramps or jack up the vehicle at the points provided.                                                                                                                                                         I guess that means jack at ALL points on the car , therefore it will remain level? does this sound correct? or can you raise only the rear?                                   Thank you

These cars are jacked up from only the rear jack points. The front will raise when you do this. Many people also simply drive up on one or 2x10s to get enought room to access the drain plug and filter. If you are concerned about keeping the car level you can put a couple of 2x10s in the front as well. Hope this helps.
