How Often to Get 1993 BMW 318i Oil Changes

Not sure how or where to get your BMW 318i’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

BMW recommends changing your 1993 318i’s oil at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your 318i in the above table. Outside of BMW-recommended oil change intervals, your 318i 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 may also need an oil change more frequently than BMW recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, enjoy off-roading, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your BMW 318i. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

1993 BMW 318i Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my BMW 318i engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and cause your BMW 318i engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • 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 318i spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? 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 damaged cylinder walls.
