When to Change 2014 Subaru Tribeca Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Subaru Tribeca’s oil changed? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond 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 2014 Tribeca’s oil should be changed according to Subaru’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your Tribeca may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, 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, frequent dusty roads, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Subaru Tribeca. 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’s the Right Type of Oil for 2014 Subaru Tribeca?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Subaru Tribeca. Subaru has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 2014 Tribeca. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, maintain proper engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During an oil change, one of our techs will change your Tribeca’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect 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 Tribeca by considering your driving preferences, and mileage.

2014 Subaru Tribeca Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Subaru Tribeca motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Subaru Tribeca engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Subaru Tribeca oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Subaru Tribeca spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is 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, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
