Subaru recommends having your 2008 Subaru Tribeca’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Tribeca in the above table. Your Tribeca 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 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 drive at low speeds for long distances.

2008 Subaru Tribeca Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Subaru Tribeca engine? 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, generate excess heat, and cause your Tribeca’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Subaru Tribeca 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. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Subaru Tribeca spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
