Not sure how or where to get your Scion xD’s oil changed? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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.

Your 2013 xD’s oil should be changed according to Scion’s recommended oil change intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your xD in the above table. Outside of Scion-recommended oil change intervals, your xD may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Scion if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, enjoy off-roading, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Scion xD. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

2013 Scion xD Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Scion xD? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Scion xD engine failure. 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? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces 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? 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 caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
