When to Change 2007 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 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 2007 Legacy’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your Legacy may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Subaru recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, enjoy off-roading, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt 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 2007 Subaru Legacy motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Subaru has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 2007 Legacy. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, maintain proper engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During an oil change, one of our techs will change your Legacy’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect all of your other 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 Legacy by taking into account your driving habits, and odometer.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2007 Subaru Legacy

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Subaru Legacy? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Legacy’s 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 Legacy 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. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Subaru exhaust smoke gray or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. 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, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
