WHAT VISCOSITY OIL SHOULD I USE IN MY 2000 OUTBACK. IT HAS 135,000 MILES ON IT

Asked by Jul 19, 2009 at 10:38 PM about the 2000 Subaru Outback Base Wagon

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1 Answer

1,315

use what ever the cars been using for the last 135,000. Definitly do not use anything thinner or synthetic. Old engine wear so thinner oil will increase the play in mechanical parts which MIGHT cause things to fail. So stick to what ever its been using
