When to Change 2019 Subaru Forester Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2019 Subaru Forester? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just 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.”

Your 2019 Forester’s oil should be changed according to Subaru’s recommended oil change intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Forester in the above table. Your Forester may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the vehicle, 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, drive in dusty areas, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Subaru Forester. 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.

What Type of Oil Does My Subaru Forester Need?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2019 Subaru Forester motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Subaru has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 2019 Forester.

In an oil change service, an auto technician will change your Forester’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, check all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Forester by considering your driving style, weather and road conditions,

2019 Subaru Forester Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Subaru Forester? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Subaru Forester engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Subaru Forester oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. 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 Forester exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
