How Often to Change 2020 Subaru WRX Oil

Need more info about 2020 Subaru WRX oil changes? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know the ins and outs of 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.”

Subaru recommends changing your 2020 WRX’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your WRX may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock 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, drive in dusty areas, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Subaru WRX. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What’s the Right Type of Oil for 2020 Subaru WRX?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2020 Subaru WRX motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Subaru has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 2020 WRX. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, regulate engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During your oil change service, an auto technician will change your WRX’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, check all of your other filters, top-off essential fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your WRX by taking into account your driving preferences, and the number of miles on your odometer.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2020 Subaru WRX

  • Should I check my Subaru WRX motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Subaru WRX engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Subaru WRX oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. 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 WRX exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
