BMW recommends having your 2010 BMW 128i’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your 128i may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by BMW if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your BMW 128i. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

2010 BMW 128i Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my BMW 128i motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to BMW 128i engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change BMW 128i oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my BMW exhaust smoke gray or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
