How Can We Help?

Benefit from Subaru Service Experts for Your Next Oil Change

Sticking to a routine maintenance schedule can make a world of difference for you and your vehicle. Over time, your car's parts and systems will wear down with use, requiring you to replenish and replace to keep you going. Without routine maintenance, your vehicle's parts can fail, causing damage and leading to more expensive repairs. To avoid issues, we recommend scheduling your next service appointment at Butte Subaru. From oil changes to numerous other services, we're here to help!

Signs You Should Schedule an Oil Change

While you won't always know exactly when you should get an oil change, there are a few signs to watch out for that can indicate it's time to schedule your next appointment. These indicators can include:

  • Engine Oil is Dark Brown or Black, or the Engine Oil Level is Low
  • Your Vehicle Suffers a Decrease in Performance or Efficiency
  • Your Check Engine Light is On
  • An Oily Smell is Present in Your Vehicle's Cabin

If you notice any of these issues occurring, we encourage you to reach out to our service team today!

Why Do You Need Your Oil Changed?

Engine oil keeps the moving parts in your vehicle lubricated while also keeping the engine compartment free from dirt and debris picked up from the road. Without scheduled oil changes at regular intervals, your oil will wear down and provide less effectiveness. When the engine oil breaks down, your engine will start to overheat. This can lead to potential engine failure and repairs you can easily avoid with oil change appointments. Reach out to our team today to avoid engine issues and schedule your next appointment.

How Often Do I Need an Oil Change?

The Butte Subaru service team recommends you get your oil changed every 3,000 to 6,000 miles, but you might find this changes based on your driving habits. If you drive more frequently or deal with heavy traffic daily, you might need an oil change sooner. Referring to the owner's manual can provide you with a more specific timeline.

Checking your oil level.

Subaru recommends that you check the oil level on your dipstick at every other fuel stop. Depending on your driving style and other conditions, your engine may consume oil more frequently between oil changes. It's good practice to check the level regularly to help ensure your Subaru continues performing safely. It's easy and anyone can do it. Here's how:

Ever wonder what's under those yellow caps?

Your Subaru uses different fluids to help support and protect its various systems. Our Factory Trained Teams inspect them each time you visit us for service during the Free Multi-Point Inspection. It also helps to keep an eye on these fluid levels yourself from time to time. It's simple - just open your hood and look for the yellow caps. Check out the videos below to learn more. And for detailed instructions, refer to your Owner's Manual.
