Checking Oil and Fluids


Between oil changes, Subaru recommends that you check the oil level on your dipstick at every other fuel stop. Depending on your driving style and other conditions, your engine may consume oil more frequently than the recommended oil change intervals. So check the level and top it off if it’s low. It’s good practice to check vehicle fluids to help ensure your Subaru performs safely. It’s easy and anyone can do it.

Fresh Oil Keeps Your Engine Running Smoothly

Perhaps the most well-known of vehicle maintenance jobs, an oil change is critical to the health of your vehicle's engine. Oil lubricates the engine's multitude of moving parts, preventing excess heat and needless wearing. As your car's oil gets older, you may see decreases in performance and efficiency. In the worst cases, parts may break. Keeping fresh oil in your engine keeps your car on the road and money in your pocket.

How Often Should I Bring My Vehicle in for an Oil Change?

This can vary. Each vehicle is different and requires unique attention. Generally, oil changes should occur every few months or every few thousand miles. Our technicians can help determine if and when your vehicle needs an oil change.

What Kind of Oil Does my Vehicle Need?

Again, this varies. There are dozens of varieties of motor oils and every engine needs the proper type to function properly. Whether you need 5W-20 or 10W-30, synthetic or high-mileage, we can help determine what kind of oil is best for your engine.

Can I Change My Vehicle's Oil Myself?

Technically, yes - but we recommend using a certified mechanic. Mechanics have specialized training and knowledge for specific vehicle makes and models. Our technicians know the specs and required steps for servicing Subaru models.
