An oil change is simply replacing the old oil and oil filter in your vehicle’s crankcase. Oil has a limited life span and needs to be changed based on your vehicle maintenance schedule. Depending on what kind of oil is in your Subaru, it can last from around 5,000 – 7,000 miles.
You should never go over your vehicle’s recommended oil change mileage. Otherwise, a few things can go wrong. Old oil has dirt and particles built up in it, while your oil filter will catch these in the beginning, it will start to get clogged and the particles will not be filtered out of your oil as time goes on. This causes your oil to become thicker, which means it can’t do its job of lubricating the moving parts in your motor. This creates extra friction and heat on parts in your Subaru, which can cause a lot of different problems.
