Synthetic or Conventional Oil Change Services Information
Conventional Or Synthetic Oil Change Service At Byers Airport Subaru
Have you ever wondered just what is the big deal with oil changes? Why are they so important and what’s the deal with the more expensive synthetic oil? Does your car really need that synthetic oil, and isn’t one oil change place as good as another? In our authorized Subaru service center, we frequently find ourselves answering these questions and others about the oil in the unique Subaru BOXER® engines. You probably already know that the purpose of oil in your engine is lubricating all the moving metal parts, and that the oil only does its job well for a limited time. But there’s a bit more to it than that.
The Right Engine Oil Makes A Big Difference
If you enjoy the advantages of driving a modern Subaru, there’s a good chance that it requires synthetic oil. So, what’s the difference between conventional and synthetic oil? The main difference is found in how the oil is made. Where conventional oil is essentially made from refined crude oil that’s been extracted from the ground, synthetic oil is chemically engineered from a variety of compounds that combine with refined crude oil. The result is an engine oil that will flow more freely on those cold winter mornings and also adhere better to the various metal engine parts at high operating temperatures.
The reason so many modern Subaru engines require synthetic is because they’re engineered and manufactured with such tight tolerances that they simply need the better protection of synthetic oil. In fact, the benefits of synthetic oil are so significant that you might consider switching if you have a higher-mileage engine that’s still using conventional.
How Often Should You Get The Oil Changed In Your Subaru?
Another of the many advantages of using synthetic engine oil is that it lasts longer. That means traveling 5,000 miles or more before needing to change the oil. Some new Subaru models don’t recommend an oil change until upwards of 7,000 miles. Between the superior protection and less frequent changes, we typically find that it all adds to be more affordable over time to use synthetic oil in your engine.

Why Bring Your Subaru To A Certified Dealership For Maintenance, Service & Repair?
Subaru models are engineered to be among the longest-lasting and highest-quality vehicles throughout the world. It’s why you shouldn’t trust just any mechanic with the care of your ride. Sure, there are good mechanics out there that don’t work at dealerships, and some of them might even maintain some Subaru certifications. However, you’re not likely to find such mechanics at your local oil-and-tune franchise car maintenance garage. Instead of rolling the dice with who’s turning a wrench on your car and what parts they’re using, consider a better option that removes any doubt.
In our authorized Subaru service center, you’ll find expert technicians that have been extensively trained in all things Subaru. No one knows the flat Subaru BOXER® engine or the renowned Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system better than these factory-trained technicians. What’s more, we’ll only use genuine OEM Subaru parts, fluids, and products when taking care of your car. That way, you can count on the same stringent engineering standards that your Subaru rolled off the production line with.
