Learn about the Important of Routine Oil Changes and Certified Subaru Service at Cleo Bay Subaru

Did you know that most new Subaru vehicles require synthetic motor oil for optimum performance? It's all about the little things when it comes to avoiding costly repairs in the long run. The professional Subaru technicians here at Cleo Bay Subaru know the oil type, viscosity, and oil change intervals required for your specific Subaru vehicle. It's this attention to details that helps to protect the impeccable of your car or SUV.

Why change motor oil

Clean, fresh motor oil is critical to the lifespan of your vehicle. Oil lubricates the moving parts of your Subaru's engine, keeping it cool. Over time, oil changes consistency and becomes clogged with debris, losing its lubrication ability. Old oil filters can allow debris to enter the engine. Making the small investment in a routine oil and filter change in Killeen can save you from costly engine repair in the long run.

How often to change oil

Oil change intervals depend on your unique vehicle. Model year and engine type are both factors, but Subaru vehicles typically require an oil change every 3,000, 6,000 or 7,500 miles. Subaru vehicles 2015 model year or newer have a synthetic oil change mileage interval of 6,000 miles. Consult your vehicle's owner's manual for its particular maintenance schedule or reach out to the Subaru specialists here at Cleo Bay Subaru.

Why choose synthetic oil

Synthetic oil resists temperature extremes better than conventional oil. It's engineered to provide optimum lubrication in both high and low temperatures, making for greater engine protection. Synthetic oil is thinner and longer-lasting than conventional, taking longer to break down and doing a better just of lubricating smaller turbocharged engines, which are found in some Subaru models.
