The Chilton Subaru repair manual suggests that the engine oil in the Subaru Impreza 2.5 RS engine be changed every 3000 miles to ensure the longest possible life of the engine. With cars reaching 100,000 miles your Subaru should see more than 33 oil changes over its lifetime. Completing these changes on your own ensures the oil change is completed properly and it helps you save some money at the same time.
Tools Used: Tools, Ramps, Wooden block, Drain pan, 14mm wrench, Oil filter wrench, Funnel, Four quarts 5w30 motor oil
Change the Oil
