When to Change 2013 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! We are experts in car care — not just 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 changing your 2013 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 knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, 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, frequent dusty roads, go off-roading a lot, or go long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage 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’s the Right Type of Oil for 2013 Subaru Impreza?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2013 Subaru Impreza motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Subaru has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best oil for 2013 Subaru Impreza vehicles. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, regulate engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During an oil change, a technician will change your Impreza's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off important 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 preferences, and odometer.

2013 Subaru Impreza Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Subaru Impreza engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Subaru Impreza engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Subaru Impreza oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform 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 the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
