1993 BMW 325is Oil Change Service

How Often to Get 1993 BMW 325is Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1993 BMW 325is? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just 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.”

BMW recommends changing your 1993 325is’s oil at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your 325is in the above table. Your 325is may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by BMW if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, enjoy off-roading, or go long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your BMW 325is. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

1993 BMW 325is Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my BMW 325is engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your 325is’s engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my BMW 325is oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. 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 325is spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
