Oil Changes for 2021 Subaru Impreza

How Often to Get 2021 Subaru Impreza Oil Changes

Not sure how or where to get your Subaru Impreza’s oil changed? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know all about 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.”

Subaru recommends changing your 2021 Impreza’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics 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 vehicle, 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, drive in dusty terrain, enjoy off-roading, or go long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage 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.

2021 Subaru Impreza Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Subaru Impreza engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Subaru Impreza engine failure. 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 your own oil isn't as convenient as you might 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 it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Subaru Impreza spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
