subaru impreza oil capacity

It’s easy to forget the importance of regular vehicle maintenance, but changing the oil is one of the simplest, most essential ways to enhance your Subaru vehicle’s performance and increase its lifespan.

While the general recommendation is that you should change your oil every 3,000 miles, newer vehicles can keep the oil churning for 5,000 to 7,000 miles.

How to change the engine oil in Subaru Impreza 2014-2020

The Oil Is Black and Gritty

New oil is the color of honey, but after just a few weeks of use, it begins to turn dark. This color change is acceptable, but as soon as you see particles mixed in with that darker-colored oil, it’s time for an oil change. These particles can get stuck in your engine and overwhelm your oil filter, which will result in clogging and unnecessary buildup. Have your oil changed before this becomes a problem?

The Engine Runs Loudly

Oil is an engine lubricant, preventing parts from grinding against one another. The dry friction of the constantly moving parts gives off a metallic grinding sound. If your engine begins to run louder and makes abnormal and unpleasant noises, don’t delay that oil change any longer or your Subaru could suffer serious consequences.
