Yes, as of 2018. If in doubt it should be under code Z1S. The OP doesn't want to wait for the first 10k or 1 yr free service.
They changed the V6 engines in 2019 to the Audi engines. It's a single turbo V6 now. https://www.caranddriver.com/news/a22537394/2019-porsche-macan-new-look-new-v-6s-more-power-official-photos-and-info/It's an oil filter. You can tell from the snaps on the bottom which attach to the oil canister like VDubs and Audis. It's unlikely that they would change the size/shape etc. of an oil filter from one year to the next. Plenty of places to find them: eBay, RockAuto...
Yes, the new S engine has the oil filter on top of the engine, you do not need to remove the belly cover to do oil change now.
My dealer is just over 10 miles away from my place and when I buy parts I always go to them. When you consider what on line parts places charge for shipping I find that my dealer parts department is almost always cheaper with my PCA discount and I know I'm getting the right part as they use the VIN to look up the part I need.Oil filter for 2019S ?
My 2019S is approaching 5K miles, it's time for 1st oil change.
Which oil filter should I get? The 2019S engine is different from earlier models, I assume the filter is different as well. My Google-fu is strong, but I cannot find the 2019S-specific filter info.
TY in advance,
I avoid my local dealer as much as possible for both service and parts, unless covered under warranty.My dealer is just over 10 miles away from my place and when I buy parts I always go to them. When you consider what on line parts places charge for shipping I find that my dealer parts department is almost always cheaper with my PCA discount and I know I'm getting the right part as they use the VIN to look up the part I need.
1. I rarely find that to be the case. If they don't beat the cost then the cost will be the same or one or two dollars more but in those cases I'm walking out of there with the correct part in hand and not waiting for FedEx or UPS. 2. Currently at $2.79 a gallon for tier 1 premium here it cost me less than $2.79 as my round trip is mostly on the freeway doing the speed limit so 21-22 mpg. 3. As I'm retired and normally combine this with a trip to Trader Joe's or Whole Foods nearby the dealer I don't consider this a factor. On occasion I also go in and browse the new Porsche toys - bonus. 4. In my years of owning Porsches I have not had one problem purchasing parts for my Cayman (recently sold) or my Macan where it required going back to get the "correct" part from my dealer parts department. Lastly, sorry your dealer experience has been a bad one. I guess I'm just very lucky to have a great one.1.I find it very easy to beat their prices online, even if there are shipping charges. And many online sites will waive the shipping charges if you spend a minimum amount, so I will often buy more than one oil filter at a time, or buy parts for more than one car at a time.
2. Also, how much did you figure it cost you to drive the 20 miles round-trip to pick up the parts? 3. How much per hour do you value your time at?
4. Finally, buying parts at the local dealer does not guarantee you are getting the correct parts.
That's pretty good, I found the worst part was removing the underbelly pan...Just completed the oil change on my '18 GTS thanks to the steps provided earlier in this thread. It took about an hour, although most of that time was spent cleaning up the garage. This is seriously one of the easiest DIY's ever and it makes no sense why the dealer in my area charges $380.
Oil - $50 for two 5 quart bottles of Mobil 1 0W-40 (8.5 quarts needed)
Filter kit - $25, although there's probably a less expensive option
Tools I already have:
8 mm allen
flat head screwdriver
adjustable wrench for oil filter housing
T20 socket & wrench
iCarsoft POR II reset tool
$75 total and I have 1.5 quarts of oil leftover. If I had to do it in a rush for whatever reason, I can't imagine that it would take more than 30-40 mins including drain time.
Most importantly, I know it was done properly.
Great job!Just completed the oil change on my '18 GTS thanks to the steps provided earlier in this thread. ...
...iCarsoft POR II reset tool...
Do you know if the iCarsoft POR II currently supports Mac or is it still Windows only?
I think you need to update the software after purchase &/or will need future updates so it keeps working.
BTW, will that tool allow you to register a new battery for the Macan?
