Subaru recommends having your 2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your XV Crosstrek in the above table. Outside of Subaru-recommended oil change intervals, your XV Crosstrek may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice excess vehicle exhaust.

Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Subaru XV Crosstrek. 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.

2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Subaru XV Crosstrek? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Subaru XV Crosstrek engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Subaru XV Crosstrek oil at home? 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. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Subaru XV Crosstrek spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? 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 caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
