Oil Change FAQs

Q: What is the difference between conventional and synthetic oil?

A: Conventional oil is the most common type of oil because it works well with low- to average-mileage late-model cars with simple engine designs. It's a solid middle ground that offers widespread benefits to a large pool of vehicles. Synthetic oil works well in extreme temperatures, and it helps to prevent oil sludge. It's also more viscous, which helps with lubrication and engine performance.

Q: How long can my vehicle go between oil changes?

A: Most vehicles need an oil change every 5,000 to 7,500 miles, or once every six months (whichever comes first). Regular oil changes help to keep your engine running smoothly and efficiently.


Q: What happens if my car is overdue for an oil change?

A: Your check engine light and oil change light are the most obvious indicators that your engine needs attention. You might also notice that your oil is dark and dirty. Other possible problems include engine noise, an oil smell in your car, or even exhaust smoke. Be sure to schedule service at our service center near South Park promptly if you run into any of these issues.

Q: How long do I have to schedule an oil change if my oil change light is on?

A: If your change oil light comes on, it's important to address it as soon as possible to avoid damage to your engine. We can change your car's oil without an appointment, so please don't hesitate to swing by our Subaru service center serving Pittsburgh and West Mifflin.
