2015 BMW 320i Oil Change

When to Change 2015 BMW 320i Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your BMW 320i’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Your 2015 320i’s oil should be changed according to BMW’s recommended oil change intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your 320i in the above table. Outside of BMW-recommended oil change intervals, your 320i may need an oil change 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, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your BMW 320i. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What Type of Oil Does My BMW 320i Need?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your BMW 320i. BMW has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the ideal engine oil for your 2015 320i. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, regulate engine temperature, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. In an oil change service, one of our techs will change your 320i’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, check all of your other filters, refill vital car fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your 320i by considering your driving preferences, and odometer.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2015 BMW 320i

  • Should I check my BMW 320i motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your 320i’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my BMW oil on my own? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my BMW 320i spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? 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. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
