Subaru recommends having your 2015 Subaru XV Crosstrek’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. 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, smell oil inside the car, or see an excess amount of vehicle 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, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Subaru XV Crosstrek. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

2015 Subaru XV Crosstrek Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Subaru XV Crosstrek? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and cause your XV Crosstrek’s engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Subaru oil on my own? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. 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 XV Crosstrek 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. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
