Subaru recommends having your 2013 Subaru BRZ’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Subaru-recommended oil change intervals, your BRZ 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 car, or notice excess vehicle exhaust.

Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Subaru BRZ. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

2013 Subaru BRZ Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Subaru BRZ engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Subaru BRZ engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Subaru BRZ oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of 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? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
