Is there anything special to changing the oil on a WRX besides
1. warm oil
2. shut off car
3. pull some sort of plug
4. change filter while oil drains
5. replace plug
6. fill to specs
7. drive, stop, recheck oil level ?
What oils do you guys use? What brand does Subaru recommend? Should I use synthetic? Does the car come with dinosaur oil? If I switch to synthetic, is it okay to go straight from dino to synthetic, even if some dino oil might be hanging around in the engine?
Thanks a lot, I promised the GF I'd change her oil, and I wanted to make sure there was no special voodoo involved like there is with the Porsche (on that car, the oil level will read empty unless the car is running and up to operating temps)
