Oil & Fluids

Your Subaru uses multiple fluids to help support its various systems and overall vehicle performance. Our factory trained technicians know all about them, and inspect these key fluids during the multi-point inspection. It’s important for you to keep an eye on them from time to time. It’s simple – just open your hood and look for the yellow caps. For detailed instructions, refer to your Owner’s Manual.

Our technicians are factory trained and work on Subaru vehicles every day. Their training and experience ensures that the job will be done professionally – with Genuine Subaru Parts – in a timely fashion.

Between oil changes, 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 than the recommended oil change intervals. So check the level and top it off if it’s low. It’s good practice to check vehicle fluids to help ensure your Subaru performs safely. It’s easy and anyone can do it. View the videos above to see how you can check your vehicle’s fluid levels.
