2013 BMW 135i Oil Change

When to Change 2013 BMW 135i Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your BMW 135i’s oil changed? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. 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.”

Your 2013 135i’s oil should be changed according to BMW’s recommended oil change intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your 135i in the above table. Outside of BMW-recommended oil change intervals, your 135i may need an oil change 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, frequent dusty roads, go off-roading a lot, or go long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your BMW 135i. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

What Type of Oil Does My BMW 135i Need?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your BMW 135i. BMW has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 2013 BMW 135i vehicles. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, regulate engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During your oil change service, an auto technician will change your 135i’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect all of your other 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 135i by taking into account your driving style, and mileage.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2013 BMW 135i

  • Why check the motor oil level in my BMW 135i? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your BMW 135i engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my BMW 135i 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 it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my BMW 135i exhaust smoke grayish 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, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
