When to Change 2020 Subaru BRZ Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2020 Subaru BRZ? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Subaru recommends changing your 2020 BRZ’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your BRZ may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, 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, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt 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.

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

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2020 Subaru BRZ motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Subaru has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 2020 BRZ. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, regulate engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During your oil change service, a technician will change your BRZ's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off essential 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 mileage.

2020 Subaru BRZ Oil Change Q&A

  • 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, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Subaru BRZ engine failure. 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? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Subaru BRZ exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
