When to Change 1994 Subaru SVX Engine Oil

Need more info about 1994 Subaru SVX oil changes? Turn to 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.”

Your 1994 SVX’s oil should be changed according to Subaru’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of Subaru-recommended oil change intervals, your SVX may need an oil change if your check engine 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, drive in dusty areas, go off-roading a lot, or go long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Subaru SVX. 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 SVX Need?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 1994 Subaru SVX motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Subaru has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the ideal engine oil for your 1994 SVX. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, keep the engine cool, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. In an oil change service, an auto technician will change your SVX’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, check all of your other filters, top-off essential fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving style, and odometer.

1994 Subaru SVX Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Subaru SVX motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Subaru SVX engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it 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. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Subaru SVX exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
  • Who can change the oil on my Subaru SVX? Firestone Complete Auto Care is here to care for your vehicle with our Subaru SVX oil changes and more. Our expert technicians will also suggest the best oil for your vehicle, address oil leaks, and swap out your oil filter.
  • What does it mean if my Subaru SVX oil light comes on? Your Subaru SVX oil change reminder light may come on if you're overdue for an oil change. The oil pressure light will typically come on if the oil level in the engine is too low, the oil pump is failing, you have a clogged oil filter, or there's a faulty oil pressure sensor.
  • Do I need to replace my SVX’s oil filter when changing my oil? Every time you change the oil in your Subaru SVX, you should also replace the oil filter. Otherwise, you risk contaminating your brand-new oil with the dirt and debris built up in your old filter.
