BMW recommends changing your 1990 325i’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your 325i may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, 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 areas, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your BMW 325i. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

1990 BMW 325i Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my BMW 325i? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to BMW 325i engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change BMW 325i oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. 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 with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my BMW 325i 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 caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
