2018 BMW 430i Oil Change Service

How Often to Change 2018 BMW 430i Oil

Not sure how or where to get your BMW 430i’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know all about motor oil, too. 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 2018 BMW 430i’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your 430i may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, or notice an unusual amount of 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 at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your BMW 430i. 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 430i?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your BMW 430i. BMW has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 2018 BMW 430i vehicles. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, maintain proper engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. In an oil change service, a technician will change your 430i's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, check all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your 430i by taking into account your driving preferences, and mileage.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2018 BMW 430i

  • What can low oil do to my BMW 430i engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and cause your BMW 430i 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 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. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my BMW exhaust smoke gray or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. 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 old cylinder walls.
