Scheduling Oil Changes for Your Subaru

Every responsible vehicle owner knows that regular maintenance, including oil changes, is a solid way to get the most out of your car and keep it on the road as long as possible. Of all of the service work that you can have done on your Subaru, getting an oil change is quite possibly the easiest and most affordable work to keep your car working properly. Drivers in the Westchester, Cortlandt Manor, Yorktown Heights area trust the skilled auto service team at Brewster Subaru to keep them on track with their oil changes and all other service work required for their Subarus.

Keeping track of when you last had your oil changed in your Subaru is important for not going too long with dirty oil cycling through your car's engine. The traditional recommendation used to be that drivers should get their vehicle's oil changed about every 3,000 miles, but now Subaru drivers can plan on getting their oil changed about every 6,000 miles or so. If you take your Subaru to Brewster Subaru, there will be a record of which type of oil was used in your car so that you are always following the manufacturer's recommendation. The most popular types of oils used in most cars are:

  • Full synthetic oil
  • Conventional motor oil
  • Synthetic blend engine oil
  • High mileage oil

Even if you do not think that you are up for an oil change, there may be something off with your car that requires the oil to be changed. If you notice a loud noise in the engine or that your oil levels are low, these are key signs that a mechanic should take a look to see if your oil should be changed. If your check engine light is on, this is another potential sign that your oil should be changed. If you wait too long to have your oil changed, the oil can become thick like sludge, and gritty particles can build up in the engine, which can cause an extensive amount of wear and tear far ahead of schedule.
