How Often to Get 2001 Subaru Impreza Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2001 Subaru Impreza? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than 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.”

Your 2001 Impreza’s oil should be changed according to Subaru’s recommended oil change 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 engine knocking, 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, drive in dusty terrain, enjoy off-roading, or go long distances at low speeds. 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.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2001 Subaru Impreza

  • Should I check my Subaru Impreza motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Subaru Impreza 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 Impreza 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. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Subaru Impreza 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 damaged cylinder walls.
