2018 BMW 430i Gran Coupe Oil Change Service

When to Change 2018 BMW 430i Gran Coupe Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2018 BMW 430i Gran Coupe? Get the advice you need at 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.”

BMW recommends having your 2018 BMW 430i Gran Coupe’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of BMW-recommended oil change intervals, your 430i Gran Coupe may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, 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, drive in dusty areas, enjoy off-roading, or go long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your BMW 430i Gran Coupe. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

2018 BMW 430i Gran Coupe Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my BMW 430i Gran Coupe? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your BMW 430i Gran Coupe 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 430i Gran Coupe oil at home? 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 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 430i Gran Coupe exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. 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 old cylinder walls.
