Oil & Fluids

Subaru Certified Oil and Fluids 

Is your Subaru letting you know that it's time for some new fluids? Whether the vehicle is sending you dashboard reminders or some sort of obvious sign by way of smell or declined performance, bring it into us here at Delaware Subaru and one of our expert Subaru technicians will take a look at it.

When was the last time you changed your oil? Although oil can seem like an out of sight out of mind issue, it's actually imperative to the performance of the rest of the vehicle. Motor oil is designed to catch all of the debris and other material that gets into your engine, as well as cool it down when it's running too hot. When your oil has been in use for too long, that debris builds up into gunk and can seriously decrease engine performance before shutting it down completely. Skip all that hassle and allow us to take care of it for you. We use only the OEM recommended Subaru motor oil to ensure that your vehicle is driving the way it was designed to for many more miles to come. 

It's also important to stay on top of keeping other fluids filled so that your Subaru can perform at its highest potential. Whether it's the coolant, power steering fluid, brake fluid, or even windshield washer fluid, it's important that they're all filled with Subaru certified fluids.

We want to welcome drivers from Wilmington, DE and the surrounding areas of Dover, Rehoboth Beach, Middletown, and West Chester, PA to come visit us here at Delaware Subaru. We have all of the fluids that you need here, so make it a one stop shop and have your Subaru serviced with us today.


Oil & Fluids

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.
