The Importance of Motor Oil

Engine oil is essential for keeping your motor functioning properly. It lubricates key components to maintain the proper clearance level between parts to maintain efficiency and prevent damage to your powertrain. Over time, though, your oil begins to break down and contaminants can enter your engine causing your oil to get dirty.

Clean, fresh oil functions much more effectively than old, dirty oil. Therefore, it's best to get an oil change every six months or 5,000 miles, whichever comes first. However, every vehicle is different, so consult your owner's manual if you have any further questions.  

Signs It's Time to Change Your Oil

In addition to paying attention to your mileage, there are some clear signs it may be time to swap out your oil. Always pay attention to your vehicle and if there's anything out of the ordinary. If you have any questions, seek assistance from our service center.

  • Unusual Engine Noises

Loud clicking or clanking coming from your motor is a sign that engine components are lacking the proper lubrication and are rubbing against each other.

  • Dark Oil

To ensure the quality of your oil, check your oil once a month using the dipstick in your engine. Healthy oil should be translucent and amber, so if it's dark or has excessive particles, it's time for a change.

  • Poor Fuel Economy

Improper oil levels can cause your engine to work harder than it needs to, meaning you may make more gas station stops than usual.

  • Dark Exhaust
    Your exhaust should be colorless, so if you notice dark smoke trailing from behind your vehicle, you need to get an oil change as soon as possible.

If you're experiencing any of these issues, reach out to our service center today. One of our technicians can diagnose any issues and recommend the best course of action to take to keep your BMW running smoothly.
