How Often to Change 2010 Subaru Impreza Oil

Need more info about 2010 Subaru Impreza oil changes? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. 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 having your 2010 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, drive in dusty areas, enjoy off-roading, or go long distances at low speeds. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Subaru Impreza. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Subaru Impreza?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2010 Subaru Impreza motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Subaru has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the ideal engine oil for your 2010 Impreza. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, regulate engine temperature, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During an oil change, 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 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 Impreza by considering your driving habits, and mileage.

2010 Subaru Impreza Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Subaru Impreza? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Impreza’s 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. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle 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.
