Why is Changing My Subaru Oil So Important?

Subaru oil filter replacements in San Diego, CA

The engine in your Subaru is made up of thousands of specifically designed, advanced metal parts. As those parts work together, friction is created and heats up your engine to extreme temperatures. Engine oil both absorbs this heat and lubricates moving parts so they don't overheat. As you could imagine, this job puts quite a bit of stress on the oil on a daily basis. Because of that, engine oil eventually breaks down and needs to be changed. When the oil in your Subaru is changed, technicians remove the old oil, replace it with new oil, and replace the oil filter that has been working to keep contaminants out of the engine. This restores proper lubrication and heat absorption to your engine, preventing damage and helping it run well for longer.

What's the Difference between Synthetic and Conventional Oil?

Synthetic oil is a lubricant specially engineered from chemicals and naturally occurring materials. Synthetic oil is found in most new vehicles and is often considered better than conventional oil. This is because it's designed to hold up better under extreme temperatures and colder startup conditions for a longer life. Because of this, there are different recommended oil change intervals for vehicles that use synthetic oil instead of conventional oil.

How Often Should I Change My Oil?

There are recommended intervals at which you should change you oil, generally every 5,000 miles, but it varies heavily depending on whether your model uses synthetic or conventional oil, driving style, and many other factors. It's important to check your owner's manual and speak with a certified technician for the best schedule for your model.
