Oil & Fluids

Have Your Vehicle's Fluids Replaced Quickly and Conveniently at Subaru of Wakefield


Here in our service center at Subaru of Wakefield, we're passionate about helping our customers maintain and keep their Subaru vehicles in pristine condition for as long as possible. One of the best ways to maintain the health of your vehicle doesn't involve getting under it or getting your hands dirty. All you need to do to keep up with your vehicle's health is pop the hood and check the fluids under the yellow caps. You'll find four fluid containers including your engine oil, coolant, windshield washer fluid, and power steering fluid. You can check the levels of these using a dipstick, and in the event that they are low on fluid, we welcome you to come bring your Subaru vehicle into our service center to have your fluids drained and replaced in a matter of minutes, and we'll get you back on the road with your Subaru ready to take on the next few thousand miles around Boston in no time!


Why Oil Changes and Coolant Flushes Are Important

It's important to keep on schedule with your recommended oil change mileage intervals to make sure that your engine isn't being damaged by built up, dirty oil. Your motor oil protects your engine from invasive dirt and debris, and when not changed on time, it can gunk up, causing your engine to not run as efficiently, and eventually if not addressed, not run at all. We provide quick and easy oil changes that take just a few minutes, and we only use the oil that was recommended to be used on your specific Subaru vehicle. Another important issue to have addressed is your vehicle's coolant and having it flushed on an annual basis. Your coolant essentially keeps your gaskets and radiator from overheating, and when left stagnant for too long, can in turn cause overheating of your gaskets and cause your engine to fail in turn.

These issues are easily avoidable and inexpensive to take care of. We welcome you to bring your Subaru vehicle into our service center here at Subaru of Wakefield, and we'll get all of your vehicle's issues taken care of in the most convenient and timely manner possible today! Our dealership is located right in Wakefield, MA, just a quick drive from Boston, Belmont, Danvers, and North Reading, MA!


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.
