2013 BMW 128i Oil Change

How Often to Change 2013 BMW 128i Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2013 BMW 128i? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

BMW recommends having your 2013 BMW 128i’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of BMW-recommended oil change intervals, your 128i may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, 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, enjoy off-roading, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your BMW 128i. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What’s the Right Type of Oil for 2013 BMW 128i?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2013 BMW 128i motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. BMW has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 2013 128i. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, maintain proper engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During an oil change, a technician will change your 128i's oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off important fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your 128i by taking into account your driving habits, and the number of miles on your odometer.

2013 BMW 128i Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my BMW 128i engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to BMW 128i engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my BMW 128i oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my BMW exhaust smoke gray or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
