Need more info about 1995 Subaru SVX oil changes? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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.”

Your 1995 SVX’s oil should be changed according to Subaru’s recommended oil change intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your SVX in the above table. No matter the mileage, your SVX may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or see an excess amount of vehicle 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 at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt 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.

1995 Subaru SVX Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Subaru SVX? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, overheat, 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 SVX oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might 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 SVX spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? 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 damaged cylinder walls.
