BMW recommends changing your 2020 440i’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your 440i may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice excess vehicle exhaust.

Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

2020 BMW 440i Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my BMW 440i? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to BMW 440i engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my BMW 440i oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. 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 440i exhaust smoke grayish 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. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
