How Often Should You Change Your Oil?

BMW oil change frequency guidelines have been determined with one simple purpose in mind: to keep your vehicle running like new for as long as possible! So, how often should you change your oil at our service center near Philadelphia? Scheduling serviceevery 7,500 to 10,000 miles is sufficient in the vast majority of cases, especially if you’re also checking your levels at least once per month. If you travel about as much as the average driver, you should schedule oil service at least once or twice per year.

BMW Oil Change Frequency Guidelines

BMW oil change frequency guidelines are applicable only when you use the recommended oil for your vehicle. In general, this recommendation will be a full synthetic 5W-30 engine oil, as laid out in your owner’s manual. Using a lesser variety of oil is not recommended, and doing so will almost certainly require you to schedule service more often–or risk serious damage.

In some cases, it may be appropriate to schedule oil service more often than your owner’s manual recommends. Here’s what you’ll want to consider:

  • As a model ages, the accumulation of residues and deposits causes oil to degrade more rapidly. Changing the oil more often may be necessary.
  • Heavy towing and performance driving can take a toll on your engine–and your oil. Protect the equipment that powers your vehicle by changing out your oil more regularly.
  • If you don’t drive your BMW very often, you may try to get away with fewer oil changes. Since oil can break down over time, even when it isn’t being used, it’s good to switch it out at least once per year.

What Happens When Your Car’s Oil Isn’t Changed?

Most drivers have an intuitive grasp on the importance of oil changes, but for some, oil change frequency guidelines might at first appear somewhat arbitrary. Here’s why it’s so essential to know how often you should change your oil:

  • Failing to change your oil over an extended period can result in engine overheating, fused components, and unfixable damage.
  • Even over shorter terms, driving with old oil increases the rate of grime buildup. This impacts your engine performance and potentially shaves miles off of your vehicle’s lifespan.
  • When older engine oil is coursing through your vehicle, the exhaust that exits your vehicle will be dirtier, too!

Don’t forget: the worst risks associated with dirty engine oil can also result from low oil levels. Catching leaks quickly is of the utmost importance, so remember to check your levels at least once every month. Explore our service tips and tricks to learn more.
