How Often to Change 2015 Scion iQ Oil

Need more info about 2015 Scion iQ oil changes? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know all about motor oil, too. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Scion recommends having your 2015 Scion iQ’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your iQ in the above table. Your iQ may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Scion if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, enjoy off-roading, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Scion iQ. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

What’s the Right Type of Oil for 2015 Scion iQ?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Scion iQ. Scion has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 2015 Scion iQ vehicles. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, keep the engine cool, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During your oil change service, a technician will change your iQ's oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, refill vital car fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your iQ by considering your driving preferences, and the number of miles on your odometer.

2015 Scion iQ Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Scion iQ? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your iQ’s engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Scion iQ 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 exhaust smoke gray or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
  • Who offers Scion iQ oil changes? Firestone Complete Auto Care performs Scion iQ oil changes and more! Our technicians also replace oil filters, troubleshoot oil leaks, and advise on the right oil for your ride.
  • Why is the oil light on in my Scion iQ? Your Scion iQ 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.
  • Do I need to change my iQ's oil filter when I get an oil change? Every time you change the oil in your Scion iQ, you should also replace the oil filter. Otherwise, you risk contaminating your brand-new oil with the dirt and debris built up in your old filter.
