How Often to Change 2006 BMW 330i Oil

Not sure how or where to get your BMW 330i’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond 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 having your 2006 BMW 330i’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your 330i may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or see an excess amount of 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 go long distances at low speeds. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your BMW 330i. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

2006 BMW 330i Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my BMW 330i engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to BMW 330i 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 330i 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 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 330i 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 the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
