2015 BMW 335i Oil Change

When to Change 2015 BMW 335i Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your BMW 335i’s oil changed? Turn to 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.”

BMW recommends having your 2015 BMW 335i’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your 335i may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice excess 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 terrain, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your BMW 335i. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

What Type of Oil Does My BMW 335i Need?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2015 BMW 335i motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. BMW has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 2015 335i. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, keep the engine cool, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During your oil change service, a technician will change your 335i's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, refill vital car fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your 335i by taking into account your driving preferences, and odometer.

2015 BMW 335i Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my BMW 335i engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your 335i’s 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 335i 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. 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 335i spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
