How Often to Get 2010 Subaru Legacy Oil Changes

Not sure how or where to get your Subaru Legacy’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know all about motor oil, too. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Subaru recommends having your 2010 Subaru Legacy’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Legacy 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 car, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Subaru if you regularly haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm 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.

What Type of Oil Does My Subaru Legacy Need?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Subaru Legacy. Subaru has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best oil for 2010 Subaru Legacy vehicles. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, maintain proper engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During your oil change service, an auto technician will change your Legacy’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, check all of your other 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 habits, weather and road conditions,

2010 Subaru Legacy Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Subaru Legacy engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Subaru Legacy engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Subaru Legacy oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, 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, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
