Porsche Maintenance Procedures - Common Additional Services
The air filter accumulates dust and debris and should be replaced to protect the engine and maximize fuel economy. For optimal engine performance and longevity, replace every 1 year or 15,000 miles.
Over time the Cabin Filter(s) will accumulate dirt, pollen and debris which can leak in to the passenger compartment if left unchecked. They should be replaced every year or 15,000 miles.
Differential fluid breaks down and becomes contaminated with moisture over time and can lead to differential damage from a lack of proper lubrication. It should be replaced every 2 years or 30,000 miles.
Drive belts crack and become glazed over time and can squeak or even break. They should be replaced every 45,000 miles.
Spark Plug terminals wear down over time and can lead to engine misfires and increased exhaust emissions. Replace according to the vehicle manufacturers recommended replacement interval.

Porsche Scheduled Maintenance Questions and Answers
My Cayenne S is due for 40,000 mile major maintenance which includes oil change,filter element change, fluid checks,changing spark plugs, and a brake fluid flush. The balance of the work is visual inspection. The dealer wants @$1,300 for the maintenance. My local shop (whom I trust after 15 years) can do it for a fraction. I know it is a high performance vehicle, but its still just maintenance work. Is there something I am missing?
I am the original owner, 15,800mi/25,600km. My car has been perfect. This morning, I drove it a short distance and when I returned, I saw an 18"x24" pool of very clean oil where I park my car. I have not driven it since, though I did start it..it sounds perfect. The digital oil gauge shows the oil is fine (had the yearly maintenance in May). The car has been maintained only by the dealership.There has not been a single drop of oil since, and photos taken underneath show nothing...
