When to Change 2017 Subaru BRZ Engine Oil

Need more info about 2017 Subaru BRZ oil changes? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Subaru recommends having your 2017 Subaru BRZ’s motor oil changed 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, smell oil inside the car, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Subaru recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage 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.

What Type of Oil Does My Subaru BRZ Need?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2017 Subaru BRZ motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Subaru has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 2017 Subaru BRZ vehicles. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, maintain proper engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During an oil change, one of our techs will change your BRZ’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, check all of your other filters, refill vital car fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your BRZ by considering your driving preferences, and the number of miles on your odometer.

2017 Subaru BRZ Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Subaru BRZ? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, engine 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.
  • 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. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly 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 caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
