How Often to Change 2015 BMW X1 Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2015 BMW X1? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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.

Your 2015 X1’s oil should be changed according to BMW’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your X1 may need its oil changed ASAP 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, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your BMW X1. 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.

2015 BMW X1 Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my BMW X1? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to BMW X1 engine failure. 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 figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my BMW exhaust smoke gray or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. 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, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
