Where can you get a BMW oil change? Right here at Perillo BMW in Chicago. Do you want someone who spends 90% of their time under the hood of a Honda working on your BMW? Probably not. It’s why we recommend all of our drivers, from Chicago to Oak Park visit our service center when it’s time for a BMW oil change.

How Often Do I Need a BMW Oil Change?

The old rule for oil changes was that they needed to be performed every three months or 3,000 miles, whichever came first. Today, advancements in engineering have altered that belief, with research proving that most vehicles only need an oil change around every 5,000 miles. You’ll also know it’s time for an oil change if the BMW warning light that looks like an oil can illuminates.

But your vehicle is your vehicle, and it might have been engineered for a different oil change interval — always check your manual for your oil change interval.

Why Are Oil Changes Important?

Engines are comprised of many intricate parts, and oil helps prevent excessive friction within. This goes double for a precision machine like a BMW X5. This lubricant keeps the pistons and the inner walls of the housing running smoothly, but oil breaks down over time — it can also pick up debris.

Poorly performing oil means increased friction, means increased heat. Excessive engine heating then leads to a decrease in performance and loss of vehicle efficiency, incurring unnecessary wear and tear.

How Do I Change My Oil?

If you are looking to change your own oil, you’ll need some key know-how to get the job done:

  1. Choose the right kind of oil
  2. Prepare your tools and workspace
  3. Drain old oil from the drain plug
  4. Tighten the drain plug
  5. Switch out the oil filter
  6. Add fresh oil
  7. Make sure the oil level is correct

Trying to manage this on your own can be rough, especially if you live in the city and have limited garage space. We can take care of it for you without risking oil on your favorite jeans. If you’re worried about how long an oil change takes, it might be best to leave it to the professionals.
