Subaru vehicles are built to last - after all, 98% of those sold in the last 10 years are still on the road in 2017. But an important part of getting the most out of your Subaru is proper maintenance and repairs.

Regular oil changes can prevent serious - and expensive - engine damage. Let's take a look at when you should bring your Subaru in for an oil change and why you should choose Schumacher Subaru of Delray in Florida.

Everything You Want to Know About Oil Changes at Schumacher Subaru of Delray

Why is getting my car's oil changed important?

Oil is responsible for lubricating all the moving parts of your engine. Subpar oil quality means poor lubrication, which can result in engine damage. Regular oil changes ensure there's a continuous flow of high quality oil to keep your Subaru running smooth.

How do I know when my car needs an oil change?

You should have your oil checked or changed every 3,000 to 10,000 miles, depending on which Subaru model you have. However, if you encounter any of these issues, you should consult a technician immediately:

  • Check engine light comes on the dashboard.
  • Oil appears dark in color or has particles floating in it.
  • The engine runs louder than usual.
  • Oil levels dip below what's recommended.

How do I check the oil in my car myself?

Check the level and quality of your oil by following these steps:

  • Turn off the engine and wait 10 minutes
  • Pop the hood and locate the dipstick
  • Pull the dipstick out of the reservoir and wipe it across a lint-free cloth
  • Place the dipstick back in the reservoir before removing it again
  • Check for an oily film at the end of the dipstick

Bring your car in for service if your oil is dark brown or black or if there are floating particles in it.

What happens during a professional oil change?

When performing an oil change, our technicians will:

  • Determine the level and condition of the oil
