Signs Your BMW Needs New Oil

 If you've ever started your engine and heard some clanking sounds coming from within, it may signal that your oil is deteriorating. The oil in your vehicle is there for a few reasons, one of which is to provide ample lubrication to the moving parts within. As oil ages, it's no longer able to properly lubricate everything, so you'll need to drain the old oil and fill your vehicle with fresh, high-performing oil.

You can check the oil yourself right at home if you'd prefer. After opening the hood of your car, you can locate the dipstick. Removing the dipstick will help you see your oil level. To properly observe its status, you'll want to:

  • Wipe the dipstick clean
  • Reinsert the dipstick, then pull it out again
  • Check the fill line on the dipstick to ensure oil is at the proper level

The oil might range in color from a yellowish to a black shade. The consistency of the oil is especially important to note, as it should be running pretty smoothly off the dipstick. If, however, you notice a thick consistency, that means it likely needs to be replaced.  

Yet another important sign to watch out for is a burning smell. Your engine generates a lot of heat, and its oil helps it cool down. Over time, worn-out oil can no longer provide your engine with the cooling that it needs to keep running effectively. This then leads to said burning smell, which you'll want to have addressed by a technician.
