1992 Subaru Legacy Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Subaru Legacy? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Legacy’s engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Subaru oil on my own? 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 Legacy exhaust smoke grayish or blue? 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 old cylinder walls.
