How Often to Change 2011 BMW 335is Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2011 BMW 335is? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

BMW recommends having your 2011 BMW 335is’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your 335is in the above table. No matter the mileage, your 335is may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds 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, 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 335is. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My BMW 335is?

BMW has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the ideal engine oil for your 2011 335is. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, regulate engine temperature, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. In an oil change service, a technician will change your 335is's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, check all of your other filters, refill vital car fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your 335is by considering your driving style, and mileage.

2011 BMW 335is Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my BMW 335is motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and cause your 335is’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my BMW oil on my own? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce 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 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. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
