How Often to Change 1995 BMW 525i Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1995 BMW 525i? 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, "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 1995 BMW 525i’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your 525i may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, 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, frequent dusty roads, enjoy off-roading, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your BMW 525i. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What’s the Right Type of Oil for 1995 BMW 525i?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 1995 BMW 525i motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. BMW has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the ideal engine oil for your 1995 525i. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, maintain proper engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During an oil change, an auto technician will change your 525i’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off essential fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your 525i by taking into account your driving habits, and the number of miles on your odometer.

1995 BMW 525i Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my BMW 525i motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your BMW 525i 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 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 changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my BMW 525i spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? 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 caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
