How Often to Get 2002 Subaru Impreza Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2002 Subaru Impreza? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Subaru recommends changing your 2002 Impreza’s oil at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Impreza in the above table. Your Impreza may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, 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, frequent dusty roads, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt 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 2002 Subaru Impreza motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Subaru has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the ideal engine oil for your 2002 Impreza. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, maintain proper engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During your oil change service, a technician will change your Impreza's oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off essential 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 style, and the number of miles on your odometer.

2002 Subaru Impreza Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Subaru Impreza motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Subaru Impreza 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 Impreza oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce 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 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
