How Often to Change 1995 BMW 325i Oil

Need more info about 1995 BMW 325i oil changes? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. 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.”

Your 1995 325i’s oil should be changed according to BMW’s recommended oil change intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your 325i in the above table. Outside of BMW-recommended oil change intervals, your 325i 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 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, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage 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.

1995 BMW 325i Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my BMW 325i engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your BMW 325i engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change BMW 325i oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. 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 with your vehicle 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. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
