Oil Changes Explained - at Schumacher Subaru of West Palm Beach

Why is getting my car's oil changed important?

Oil keeps all the moving parts of your engine lubricated. If the oil quality or level is low, the lubrication level is low too - which can lead to engine damage. By replacing your oil on a regular basis, you're ensuring a continuous flow of quality oil to your Subaru's engine.

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

You should have your oil changed every 3,000 to 10,000 miles, although the exact number depends on the make and model of your car. If you encounter any of the following issues, bring your car in to be checked immediately:

  • The dashboard check engine light comes on.
  • Oil appears to be silty or dark in color.
  • The engine makes unusually loud noises.
  • Oil levels are low.

How do I check the oil in my car  myself?

You can determine the level and condition of your oil by following these steps:

  1. Make sure you engine has been off for at least 10 minutes.
  2. Pop your hood.
  3. Pull the dipstick out of the reservoir.
  4. Wipe the dipstick across a lint-free cloth.
  5. Place the dipstick back into the reservoir.
  6. Poll the dipstick out again and check for an oily film on the end of it.

If the oil looks dark brown or black or it has a silty consistency, bring your car in for an oil change.

What happens during a professional oil change?

Our technicians conduct a professional oil change by following these steps:

  1. Assess the oil level and oil quality.
  2. Drain the oil from the reservoir.
  3. Replace the oil filter.
  4. Add new oil to the reservoir.
