Oil & Fluids

Engine Oil and Vehicle Fluids to Keep Your Subaru Happy and Healthy

Types of Engine Oil and Fluids

There are a variety of fluid materials that work together within your powertrain to keep your Subaru running smoothly and working well, including engine oil, power steering fluid, brake fluid, coolant, and even the humble windshield washer fluid. Each plays their own specific role in making sure that your ride can perform optimally. And whether you prefer to let us top off your fluids when you come by for a multi-point inspection, or you like to do the work yourself in Bedford, Cleveland, Beachwood, Maple Heights, or Hudson, our Subaru parts store has all the oils, fluids, and filters that you need.

In your Subaru, locating these various fluid compartments is easy--just open the hood, and look for the little yellow caps. For more information about how/where/why, consult your owner's manual or schedule an appointment with our expert technicians.

Ever wonder what’s under those yellow caps?

Your Subaru uses multiple fluids to help support its various systems and overall vehicle performance. Our factory trained technicians know all about them, and inspect these key fluids during the multi-point inspection. It’s important for you to keep an eye on them from time to time. It’s simple – just open your hood and look for the yellow caps. For detailed instructions, refer to your Owner’s Manual.

Engine Oil

When it’s time, an oil change is something you shouldn’t put off doing. That’s why our Service Center is conveniently open for you. Our technicians are factory trained and work on Subaru vehicles every day. Their training and experience ensures that the job will be done professionally – with Genuine Subaru Parts – in a timely fashion.
Between oil changes, Subaru recommends that you check the oil level on your dipstick at every other fuel stop. Depending on your driving style and other conditions, your engine may consume oil more frequently than the recommended oil change intervals. So check the level and top it off if it’s low. It’s good practice to check vehicle fluids to help ensure your Subaru performs safely. It’s easy and anyone can do it. View the videos above to see how you can check your vehicle’s fluid levels.
