I did have the oil changed at the dealer last time...Did you reset the oil reminder when you did that oil change? If not there's the answer, you will need a durametric or equivalent to reset the computer, just another "you really should have taken it to our dealer network" from the fine folks at Porsche. In the Ford it's a button on the dash as it should be in all vehicles.
This is my solution, as well. Hard to believe they are down to $145. great device.purchase an icarsoft por 2 on Amazon and reset the reminder
If it is under warrantee you are required to change your oil at least once a year, but not required to have a dealer do it.Ok guys thanks for all the replies, the car is still under warranty until May of 2022. so I guess I will bring it in for an oil change this or next week....
So how do I go about getting a sample to send to the lab?If it is under warrantee you are required to change your oil at least once a year, but not required to have a dealer do it.
If you are interested in extending your oil change interval beyond one year post warrantee, I recommend having your oil tested by Blackstone Labs. A test will tell you how much fuel / water are in your oil and how much detergent life it has left.
I get my oil tested every change just for the insight into how my car’s engine is doing.
Just am update I contacted the dealership about an oil change they want $415 plus tax for a 2 hour job!!! Yikes!!!go to Blackstone Laboratories and get your free kit and instructions, very easy if you take care of your own oil. Even though the samples include a USPS shipping label on the container, i have heard that USPS has held up samples as they evaluate whether the contents (oil) are hazardous (oil is not). Therefore i put the samples in a small fed ex box/pak and ship. Yes, it costs me an extra $10-12 to ship, but I know it will get there, especially w/ the slow USPS service these days. The lab sends you results w/in a few days of receipt.
Don't know where you are located but in Tucson, the dealership wants $250 and that's if I provide the oil and filter. Seems like a bargain compared to your $415.Just am update I contacted the dealership about an oil change they want $415 plus tax for a 2 hour job!!! Yikes!!!
Yikes is right. Do yourself a huge favor and find a qualified, independent Porsche mechanic. Dealers get away with those prices because some folks continue to pay them. Yeah, I get it. They have high overhead, bla, bla, bla, but give me a break. I don't even pay half that and get the exact same service the stealership would give me. Many who can will do it themselves and save even more. Just keep the documentation in the event you need warranty service for something in the future.Just am update I contacted the dealership about an oil change they want $415 plus tax for a 2 hour job!!!
