The Importance of Oil Changes

Getting your oil changed is essential to your car's life. In fact, sticking to your oil change schedule can save you money in the long-haul by preventing breakdowns and unnecessary damage to your vehicle.


Oil is vital to your engine because it lubricates the many moving parts in your engine including the valves, pistons, belts, gears and more. As these parts move and do their jobs, they create friction and heat that can wear down the engine if it isn't properly lubricated. Additionally, the oil picks up dirt and particles that can get stuck in your engine. If this stuff builds up, it can cause problems in your engine.

Luckily, these problems are easily preventable. All you need to do is follow a regular oil change schedule based on the vehicle you have and the oil your vehicle uses. Regular oil should be changed about every six months while synthetic oil should be changed about every twelve.

The Subaru Oil Change Process

 Your oil change is an integral part of your regular maintenance. Choosing a Subaru dealer near Philadelphia to have your oil changed at is the best choice for a couple of reasons.

Subaru dealership service centers are staffed with expertly trained authorized technicians that will go above and beyond the call of duty. They'll look over all the parts of your vehicle to make sure there are no problems that need to be addressed.

Then, your vehicle's old oil will be drained and replaced with the perfect amount of brand new, high-quality oil. Lastly, they will test the vehicle to ensure everything is working properly before turning the vehicle back over to you.

This kind of meticulousness is guaranteed at Subaru dealerships and can actually prolong the life of your vehicle. This is because it will be done right every single time.
