When to Change 2014 Subaru BRZ Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2014 Subaru BRZ? 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 2014 BRZ’s oil should be changed according to Subaru’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your BRZ may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Subaru if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, go off-roading a lot, or go long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Subaru BRZ. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

2014 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 components can grind against each other, generate too much 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.
  • 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 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 also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Subaru BRZ spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
