How Often to Get 2021 Subaru Crosstrek Oil Changes

Need more info about 2021 Subaru Crosstrek oil changes? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond 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.”

Your 2021 Crosstrek’s oil should be changed according to Subaru’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of Subaru-recommended oil change intervals, your Crosstrek may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Subaru if you regularly haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, go off-roading a lot, or go long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Subaru Crosstrek. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

2021 Subaru Crosstrek Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Subaru Crosstrek engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Subaru Crosstrek engine failure. 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? 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 also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Subaru Crosstrek spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
