When to Change 2016 Subaru BRZ Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Subaru BRZ’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know all about 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.

Subaru recommends changing your 2016 BRZ’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your BRZ may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Subaru recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Subaru BRZ. 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.

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

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2016 Subaru BRZ motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Subaru has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 2016 BRZ. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, keep the engine cool, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During your oil change service, one of our techs will change your BRZ’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect all of your other filters, refill vital car fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your BRZ by taking into account your driving habits, weather and road conditions,

2016 Subaru BRZ Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Subaru BRZ motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your BRZ’s 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 oil on my own? 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 changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle 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. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
  • Who offers Subaru BRZ oil changes? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care for Subaru BRZ oil changes. In addition to changing your oil, our experienced technicians also perform oil filter replacements, troubleshoot oil leaks, and suggest the correct oil to help keep your engine performing its best.
  • Why is the oil light on in my Subaru BRZ? Your Subaru BRZ 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 replace my BRZ’s oil filter when changing my oil? Every time you change the oil in your Subaru BRZ, you should also replace the oil filter. Otherwise, you risk contaminating your brand-new oil with the dirt and debris built up in your old filter.
