How Often to Change 2020 Subaru Ascent Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2020 Subaru Ascent? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know all about 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.”

Your 2020 Ascent’s oil should be changed according to Subaru’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your Ascent may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Subaru recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Subaru Ascent. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Subaru Ascent?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2020 Subaru Ascent motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Subaru has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 2020 Ascent. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, regulate engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During an oil change, a technician will change your Ascent's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, check all of your other filters, top-off essential fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving preferences, weather and road conditions,

2020 Subaru Ascent Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Subaru Ascent motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Subaru Ascent engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Subaru oil on my own? 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 professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Subaru Ascent exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
  • Who can change the oil on my Subaru Ascent? Firestone Complete Auto Care performs Subaru Ascent 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 Subaru Ascent? Your Subaru Ascent 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 Ascent's oil filter when I get an oil change? It’s highly advised you replace the oil filter in your Subaru Ascent every time you change the oil. After all, what’s the point of changing our oil if you’re just going to send fresh, clean engine oil through an already dirty filter?
