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 drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Subaru Legacy. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

1991 Subaru Legacy Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Subaru Legacy motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Subaru Legacy 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 oil on my own? 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 professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Subaru Legacy spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
