Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2006 Subaru B9 Tribeca? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know the ins and outs of 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.

Your 2006 B9 Tribeca’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 B9 Tribeca may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice excess vehicle exhaust.

In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Subaru B9 Tribeca. 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.

2006 Subaru B9 Tribeca Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Subaru B9 Tribeca engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Subaru B9 Tribeca engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Subaru B9 Tribeca 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 it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Subaru exhaust smoke gray or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of 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 worn cylinder walls.
