Scion recommends having your 2009 Scion xB’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above.

2009 Scion xB Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Scion xB engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Scion xB engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Scion xB oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might 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 xB exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
