Oil Changes for 1987 BMW 325es

How Often to Get 1987 BMW 325es Oil Changes

Not sure how or where to get your BMW 325es’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond 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 changing your 1987 325es’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your 325es may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than BMW recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, enjoy off-roading, or go long distances at low speeds. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your BMW 325es. 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.

1987 BMW 325es Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my BMW 325es? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your 325es’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my BMW 325es oil at home? 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 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 325es spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. 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 old cylinder walls.
