So, we recently traded my wife’s Nissan in for a 2017 Subaru Legacy 2.5L limited. She loves the car, but I noticed that it was about 1/4 quart low on oil at about 2,500 miles after my last oil change. We have the oil changed at Subaru - OW-20 synthetic (their brand). Do I need to use their brand to top it off, or can I use any OW-20 brand to top it off until my next oil change?
I will be having Subaru look at this issue, but it seems like it’s common with these engines. We have the FJ series, and I thought the problem would have been worked out by now. Guess I was wrong ):
Anyway, before I do something I shouldn’t, please let me know.
Also, when topping off, do I just pour some oil in slowly then keep checking the dip stick? Do I need to start the engine at any point?
Sorry, I’m a newbie to this. I’ve never had an engine burn oil like this.
