Our certified service technicians work quickly and professionally to get your car back to peak performance. If you drive with low or old oil, you risk permanent engine damage, lower performance, and worse fuel economy. The best way to avoid costly repairs in the future is to schedule regular oil change services. A professional oil change from the certified technicians here at Quirk Works Subaru will help ensure your vehicle stays running like new.
Many newer vehicles come equipped with an Oil Monitoring System that will alert you when it's time to service your vehicle. If your Subaru does not have an oil life monitoring system, check the owner's manual for the manufacturer's recommended method for oil change services. When in doubt, it's good practice to change your oil after every 5,000 miles. Driving with clean oil can increase your vehicle's performance and better your fuel economy.
Oil stains or puddles under your vehicle could sign an oil leak caused by worn out parts such as seals, gaskets, or oil pan plugs. If oil leaks are ignored, you risk more significant damage and more expensive repair costs in the future. If you spot oil stains under your vehicle, it's time to schedule an oil change with your certified service technician.
Low oil level causes friction that can lead to irreversible engine damage. It can also lead to low oil pressure. Low oil pressure can also contribute to engine damage and worse fuel efficiency and overall vehicle performance. If you see your oil pressure/oil level light come on and stay on, it's time to schedule a service appointment to avoid more costly repairs.
