Oil Changes for 2014 BMW 228i

When to Change 2014 BMW 228i Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2014 BMW 228i? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know all about 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.”

BMW recommends having your 2014 BMW 228i’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of BMW-recommended oil change intervals, your 228i may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or see an excess amount of vehicle 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 drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your BMW 228i. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My BMW 228i?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your BMW 228i. BMW has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 2014 BMW 228i vehicles. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, regulate engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During your oil change service, a technician will change your 228i's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, refill vital car fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving preferences, and the number of miles on your odometer.

2014 BMW 228i Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my BMW 228i motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your BMW 228i engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change BMW 228i oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my BMW 228i exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. 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 old cylinder walls.
