5 Reasons to Change Your Subaru Vehicle’s Oil

Changing your oil is one of the most simple, and most essential, services for your vehicle. You may wonder why oil changes are so important, or why it is recommended that you get them at specific mileage intervals. These five reasons should help elucidate the importance of regular oil changes.
  • Better Fuel Economy

After some time on the road, sludge and dirt can build in your engine. This reduces the lubrication of your engine, and poor lubrication can reduce your vehicle’s fuel efficiency. By changing your oil, you can improve your fuel efficiency, saving you money at the pump throughout the year.

  • Removing Dirt and Sludge

As was mentioned before, sludge and dirt particles can build up in your engine as you accrue more miles on the road. This sludge and dirt can corrode your engine, and drastically decrease its lifespan.

  • Ensures Your Engine Is Lubricated

Your engine must be properly lubricated so all of its parts can work, and move, at the high rate that is needed. Changing your oil will ensure your engine is properly lubricated.

  • Reduces Friction

As you can imagine, all of the parts of your engine create a lot of heat. By changing your oil, you can reduce friction in your engine, and make sure your engine will not overheat.

  • Your Vehicle Will Last Longer

Perhaps most importantly, when you change your oil you will expand the longevity of your vehicle. Since sludge, and dirt, corrodes your engine, and creates friction, not changing your oil can harm your engine. When you do change it your vehicle will run more efficiently, and smoothly.
