"What Do I Need to Know About My Subaru's Oil and Fluid Change Requirements?"
You know that old adage, "prevention is the best medicine," right? It is usually easier and more cost effective to prevent a problem than to fix one. While most of us think about health when this motto comes up, it makes a lot of sense when you think of your vehicle, too. Taking good care of your Subaru today can help prevent of majorly expensive repair down the road.
Oil changes and fluid changes are two important maintenance tasks to perform regularly. They can maintain the overall health of your vehicle. Motor oil plays an important part in your vehicle's engine. It helps to remove excess heat, drawing it away from the engine and preventing overheating. If not changed regularly, however, the viscosity of oil becomes thicker. This decreases its performance in the engine and can lead to decreased fuel mileage. Do you drive in stop-and-go traffic frequently? Engine oil will also degrades more quickly in this situation, or if your vehicle's engine frequently doesn't reach optimum temperature before you turn it off.
