BMW recommends having your 1993 BMW 525iT’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your 525iT in the above table. No matter the mileage, your 525iT may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by BMW if you regularly haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your BMW 525iT. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

BMW has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 1993 525iT. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, keep the engine cool, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine.

1993 BMW 525iT Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my BMW 525iT? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and cause your 525iT’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? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my BMW 525iT spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of 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 worn cylinder walls.
