Changing your car's oil regularly is one of the best things you can do to keep your engine performing at its best. Your engine needs fresh oil to keep its fast-moving parts lubricated to reduce heat and wear and tear. Unfortunately, oil grows less effective as time passes and you rack up more miles. That's why regular oil changes are necessary. Our BMW service team serving Rockland is here to help, so don't worry about tackling oil changes by yourself. We have your back. So, when should you schedule your next oil change?

When does my car need an oil change?

Generally, you should change your oil every 5,000 to 7,500 miles or every six months (whichever comes first). Oil is responsible for keeping your engine parts cool and lubricated so that they don't wear each other down and cause too much friction too quickly. Over time, the tiny metal particles that break off these engine parts can contaminate your oil, which is where the recommended mileage intervals come from.

Why is it or every six months? Even if your car doesn't rack up much mileage very quickly, its oil still degrades over time. Old oil doesn't work as well as fresh oil, so it can cause problems with your engine that can lead to poor efficiency and other issues.
