What Is Viscosity And What Weight Of Oil Should You Use In Your Subaru?

Subaru First Oil Change at Nate Wade Subaru For your first oil change in the 2.5 liter Boxer engine found in the Subaru Outback, the engineers recommend you use 0w-20 synthetic oil. If you have the 3.6 liter 6-cylinder Boxer engine which is also available in the Subaru Legacy, conventional oil is acceptable but synthetic oil will provide better protection and you should use 5w-30. If you are looking to get the first oil change in a Subaru Forester, it is recommended that you use 0w-20 synthetic oil for the 2.5 liter Boxer engine and 5w-30 synthetic for the 2.0 turbo Boxer engine. The Subaru Crosstrek and the Subaru Impreza should use 0w-20 synthetic oil. When you are caring for the high performance that comes from a Subaru WRX or the Subaru BRZ, it is strongly recommended that you trust 5w-30 synthetic oil for the first oil change. If you have any questions, our knowledgeable service advisers will be happy to answer them in our Subaru Service Department.
