Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1987 Subaru DL? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. 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 changing your 1987 DL’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of Subaru-recommended oil change intervals, your DL may need an oil change 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 might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Subaru if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, enjoy off-roading, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Subaru DL. 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.
Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 1987 Subaru DL motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Subaru has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 1987 Subaru DL vehicles. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, maintain proper engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. In an oil change service, a technician will change your DL's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect all of your other 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 DL by considering your driving style, climate,
