When to Change 1994 Subaru Legacy Engine Oil

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

Your 1994 Legacy’s oil should be changed according to Subaru’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Subaru-recommended oil change intervals, your Legacy 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 vehicle, 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 terrain, 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 Legacy. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

What Type of Oil Does My Subaru Legacy Need?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 1994 Subaru Legacy motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Subaru has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 1994 Legacy.

During your oil change service, an auto technician will change your Legacy’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off essential 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 Legacy by considering your driving preferences, weather and road conditions,

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1994 Subaru Legacy

  • Should I check my Subaru Legacy motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Subaru Legacy engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Subaru Legacy oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Subaru Legacy spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
