When to Change 1999 Subaru Impreza Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Subaru Impreza’s oil changed? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know all about motor oil, too. 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 having your 1999 Subaru Impreza’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Subaru-recommended oil change intervals, your Impreza may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Subaru recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Subaru Impreza. 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 Impreza?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 1999 Subaru Impreza motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Subaru has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 1999 Impreza. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, maintain proper engine temperature, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During your oil change service, one of our techs will change your Impreza’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, refill vital car fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Impreza by taking into account your driving habits, and odometer.

1999 Subaru Impreza Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Subaru Impreza engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Subaru Impreza engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Subaru Impreza oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of 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 Impreza spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
