Hello All,

I am awaiting delivery of my 2018 CS and would like to know if anyone has ferreted out the maintenance intervals for the 718 C & CS.

I have attempted to cull this information from several sources but no one source is in complete agreement. Look it over and see if you have any corrections and/or additions:

PDK Transmission Oil and Clutch Fluid, Every 120K miles
Break Fluid, Every 20K miles
Cabin Air Filter, Every 40K/60K/80K miles
Engine Air Filter, Every 40K miles
Tire Sealant, Every 40K miles*
Spark Plugs, Every 30K miles
Engine Coolant, Every 20K miles
Replace Drive Belt, Every 60K miles
Engine Oil and Filter, Every 10K miles.....probably will do it at the 1K or 2K miles

*Not sure what this tire sealant maintenance is.........

I have always been meticulous about maintaining my cars but I am a newbie to the Porsche brand.....

Apparently, found from another source Porsche recommends replacing the bottle of sealant at 40K or 4 years.....I guess it has a limited self life.

Interesting that Engine Coolant is every 20k miles. On my 986S the coolant was listed as a "lifetime" coolant, you just had to check the fluid's coolant ability and level.

Anyone have any information on this. I will have to check my manual tonight.

Why not just go by the manual....I don't think exceeding recommended intervals does any good. Intervals quoted above look like something for a regularly tracked car, maybe. My 987S was amazing (to me) at the time for its infrequent service intervals, doubt that has changed with the 718.

btw the ECU gives you a digital display message on start-up when service is due -- so you don't even have to look at the manual!

It's purely age related & without checking I seem to recall you are correct in that the age is 4 years. It isn't changed purely because you hit 40K miles as that would make no sense. However the shelf life is routinely checked at 40k & replacement recommended if that shelf life is short.

Drain and replace transmission oil and clutch fluid at 12 years/120k miles. There is also a time period against the service which may occur before the “milestone”

I had to remove the link, @718, because it caused a file -- a .pdf, in this case -- to download directly to my computer.

A link to any document on this forum needs to display the document for viewing and give the end user the option to download it. This is for the safety of all forum users, both Members and Guests. IOW, the link needs to make the user liable for downloading, not the forum.

This is the second link like this I've had to redact today. Please, everyone: no FTP-style links.

Sorry. Thanks for understanding.
