How Often to Change 2016 Scion FR-S Oil

Need more info about 2016 Scion FR-S oil changes? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know all about motor oil, too. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Your 2016 FR-S’s oil should be changed according to Scion’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your FR-S may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Scion recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Scion FR-S. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

2016 Scion FR-S Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Scion FR-S engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Scion FR-S engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change Scion FR-S oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Scion FR-S exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
  • Who can change the oil on my Scion FR-S? Firestone Complete Auto Care performs Scion FR-S oil changes and more! Our technicians also replace oil filters, troubleshoot oil leaks, and advise on the right oil for your ride.
  • What does it mean if my Scion FR-S oil light comes on? Your Scion FR-S oil change reminder light might illuminate if it’s been too long since your last oil change. On the other hand, the oil pressure light might illuminate due to a clogged oil filter, a faulty oil pressure sensor, low engine oil levels, or a malfunctioning oil pump.
  • Does my FR-S's oil filter need to be changed during my oil change? It's recommended that you replace your Scion FR-S oil filter with every oil change. Otherwise, you send fresh, clean motor oil through a dirty filter. That's like putting on muddy socks after a shower.
