Oil Changes for 2017 BMW 440i

How Often to Change 2017 BMW 440i Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2017 BMW 440i? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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 2017 440i’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 440i may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than BMW recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, enjoy off-roading, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your BMW 440i. 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 440i?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2017 BMW 440i motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. BMW has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 2017 BMW 440i vehicles. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, keep the engine cool, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During your oil change service, a technician will change your 440i's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your 440i by taking into account your driving style, and mileage.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2017 BMW 440i

  • Why check the motor oil level in my BMW 440i? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and cause your 440i’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? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d 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 440i spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is 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 old cylinder walls.
