Oil Change FAQs

Why are oil changes necessary?

Regular oil changes will assist with prevention from dirt building up in the engine and keep moving components operating smoothly for ideal performance and fuel efficiency.

What is synthetic oil?

Synthetic oil is a lubricant that consists of artificially made chemical compounds.

How can I tell if my Subaru needs an oil change?

Checking your Subaru oil regularly will assist with determining if you need an oil change, but generally consulting your owner’s manual for service recommendations will be a great first step to keep your Subaru running like new. Here are some signs to look for regarding oil changing warning signs:

  • The oil is black and gritty
  • The engine runs loudly
  • You can’t recall the last time your Subaru had an oil change
  • Low oil level
  • The oil check engine light comes on

Does my Subaru require synthetic oil?

If your Subaru is a 2011 or newer Forester, a 2012 or newer Impreza, or a 2012 or newer Outback, Legacy, Crosstrek, or BRZ, or Ascent it is required to use synthetic oil.

How often should I change my Subaru's oil?

Oil changes are one of the most important services needed to help ensure performance, fuel economy, and longevity. Most Subaru vehicles on the road today should have an oil change performed every 6 months or 6,000 miles – whichever comes first. So, depending on how you use your vehicle, Subaru recommends that:

Engine oil should be changed every 6 months, even when you aren’t driving your vehicle that often, since the oil chemically breaks down, affecting its lubrication and cleaning abilities over time.


Engine oil should be changed every 6,000 miles when you drive your Subaru frequently since the oil eventually wears out and becomes less effective due to heat and friction caused during engine operation.

As always, refer to your vehicle’s Owner’s Manual for more information about engine oil, or you can contact the expert Factory Trained Teams at your local Subaru retailer for any questions you may have.

What does the “Change Engine Oil” alert mean on my Subaru?

It is time to check your oil and take your car in for an oil change.

Do I need a new filter every time I get an oil change?

Yes, to keep optimum performance a new air filter is recommended to be changed with every oil change.

What happens during an oil change?

Our skilled team will empty out the dirty oil and refill with high-quality, fresh engine oil so that your vehicle has enough lubrication to perform at its best.
