BMW recommends changing your 1991 325i’s oil at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your 325i in the above table. No matter the mileage, your 325i 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 car, or notice excess vehicle 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, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your BMW 325i. 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.

1991 BMW 325i Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my BMW 325i motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your BMW 325i 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 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. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my BMW 325i exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
