2020 Subaru Crosstrek Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Subaru Crosstrek motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Subaru Crosstrek 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 Crosstrek oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. 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 Crosstrek exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
