How Often to Get 2017 Subaru WRX Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2017 Subaru WRX? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Your 2017 WRX’s oil should be changed according to Subaru’s recommended oil change intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your WRX in the above table. Your WRX may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change 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, drive in dusty areas, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Subaru WRX. 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 Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Subaru WRX?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2017 Subaru WRX motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Subaru has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the ideal engine oil for your 2017 WRX. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, regulate engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During an oil change, a technician will change your WRX's oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, refill vital car 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 WRX by considering your driving habits, and the number of miles on your odometer.

2017 Subaru WRX Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Subaru WRX engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and cause your WRX’s 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 professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Subaru WRX 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 the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
