Oil & Fluids

Subaru Maintenance, Oil and Fluids for Sale in Kingston, NY

So, what do all of those yellow caps under the hood mean? Or better yet, what do they mean to you, the owner of the vehicle who isn't a mechanic?

Under all of those brightly colored caps are various fluids that are essential to the wellbeing of your vehicle. Oil and fluids play crucial roles in the performance, safety, and lifespan of your Subaru. Engine oil lubricates moving parts to ensure they do not overheat. Old oil doesn't have the proper viscosity for lubrication, and it can no longer protect the engine. Low brake or power steering fluid is critical, too, for obvious reasons, so it's imperative that fluids are fresh and topped off regularly.

You should check engine oil, washer fluid, and coolant on a routine basis. It's easy to top off these fluids yourself, simply by investing in the genuine Subaru oil and fluids available for purchase at Colonial Subaru. You can find out exactly how to check and fill fluids via the informational videos below. You can also learn more about oil change types and intervals on this page.

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.
