BMW recommends having your 2002 BMW 325i’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2002 BMW 325i

  • What can low oil do to my BMW 325i engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to BMW 325i engine failure. 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 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 it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my BMW 325i spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
