When to Change 2006 Scion xA Engine Oil

Need more info about 2006 Scion xA oil changes? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know the ins and outs of 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.”

Scion recommends having your 2006 Scion xA’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your xA in the above table. Your xA 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 see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Scion recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, enjoy off-roading, or go long distances at low speeds. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Scion xA. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2006 Scion xA motor oil: either synthetic or conventional.

During an oil change, an auto technician will change your xA’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, check all of your other filters, refill vital car fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your xA by considering your driving preferences, weather and road conditions,

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2006 Scion xA

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Scion xA? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your xA’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 oil on my own? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. 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 help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Scion exhaust smoke gray or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
  • Where can I get Scion xA oil changes? Firestone Complete Auto Care is here to care for your vehicle with our Scion xA oil changes and more. Our expert technicians will also suggest the best oil for your vehicle, address oil leaks, and swap out your oil filter.
  • What can cause the oil light on my Scion xA to illuminate? The oil change light in your Scion xA could be triggered by an overdue oil change. However, if the oil pressure light is on, you may be dealing with low engine oil, a failing oil pump, a clogged oil filter, or a malfunctioning oil pressure sensor.
  • Should the oil filter be replaced when getting an oil change for my Scion xA? Every time you change the oil in your Scion xA, 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.
