    SUBARU TURBO SPECIAL MESSAGE
    Subaru has published Service Bulletin # 02-103-07 that identifies a factory design related problem with premature clogging of the oil mesh screen located inside the oiling system that supplies oil to the turbo charger on all model turbo charged cars. A clogged screen will result in oil starvation and turbo charger failure.

    As a solution, Subaru has reduced their recommended oil drain interval in half, from 7,500 miles to 3,750 miles (3-3/4 months) and requires the oil mesh screen to be inspected, and possibly serviced, at every oil change. With this Subaru factory related design issue, AMSOIL INC. therefore must recommend customers to follow the new Subaru oil change interval of 3,750 miles (6000 kms) or 3-3/4 months until Subaru resolves this issue.
