How Often to Get 2004 Scion xB Oil Changes

Not sure how or where to get your Scion xB’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know all about motor oil, too. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Scion recommends changing your 2004 xB’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your xB may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Scion recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Scion xB. 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.

2004 Scion xB Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Scion xB motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Scion xB 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 xB oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Scion xB spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
  • Who can change the oil on my Scion xB? You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care for your Scion xB oil change, oil filter replacement, oil leak diagnostics, and more! Our expert technicians will even advise the right oil for your vehicle.
  • Why is the oil light on in my Scion xB? The oil change light in your Scion xB 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.
  • Do I need to change my xB's oil filter when I get an oil change? Every time you change the oil in your Scion xB, 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.
