2020 BMW 330i Oil Change Service

How Often to Get 2020 BMW 330i Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2020 BMW 330i? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know all about 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 2020 330i’s oil should be changed according to BMW’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of BMW-recommended oil change intervals, your 330i may need an oil change 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 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. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your BMW 330i. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My BMW 330i?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2020 BMW 330i motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. BMW has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best oil for 2020 BMW 330i vehicles. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, regulate engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. In an oil change service, one of our techs will change your 330i’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off essential fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your 330i by considering your driving style, and odometer.

2020 BMW 330i Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my BMW 330i engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your 330i’s engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my BMW oil on my own? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my BMW exhaust smoke gray or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
