It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

BMW recommends having your 2015 BMW 228i’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your 228i may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds 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 long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your BMW 228i. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2015 BMW 228i

  • What can low oil do to my BMW 228i engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and cause your BMW 228i 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 oil on my own? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my BMW 228i exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
