2013 BMW 135is Oil Change Service

When to Change 2013 BMW 135is Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2013 BMW 135is? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just 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 135is’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your 135is may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than BMW recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your BMW 135is. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My BMW 135is?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your BMW 135is. BMW has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the ideal engine oil for your 2013 135is. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, keep the engine cool, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. In an oil change service, one of our techs will change your 135is’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, check all of your other filters, top-off essential fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your 135is by taking into account your driving style, and the number of miles on your odometer.

2013 BMW 135is Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my BMW 135is? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and cause your 135is’s engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change BMW 135is oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my BMW 135is exhaust smoke grayish 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. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
