SOURCE: How do you know when to change the oil?

The oil should be changed every 4,000 miles. You can keep a log of the mileage at each oil change, or just divide the total mileage by 4,000. Change the oil at 40,000...44,000...48,000...etc.

SOURCE: do i have to reset the computer after oil change on my bmw 2006 325i

You don't "have to" reset the status but it does help to keep track of oil life.
Turn the car on. Wait about a minute for the computer to get to normal.
press and hold the travel mile reset button. HOld it untill an ! in a triangle appears. then your maintanance info will pop up. select the item to reset. and tap the side button on the wand atached to the stearing wheel. this button is what you use to browse through your computer. press the button once it will say "reset" press and hold it the second time and it will say reset, hold for 5 seconds or so and it will show a check mark next to
"reset" confirming it has reset.

2006 BMW 325i - low oil level 5 different times. 12,500 miles, 21,290 miles 27,216 miles (dealer replaced head), 33,500 miles & 42,100 miles. Dealer claims nothing wrong with occasional low oil!! only...


There is a lot wrong with "low oil" and low oil is not normal in a low mileage healthy engine.

The dealer is fobbing you off in the hope you will go away.

If the oil is being changed at least every 5000 miles or so there should be minimum oil depletion between changes with only very minor top up needed. Some oil consumption is normal but it should be minimal.

If the oil level is dropping to a very low level in about 4000 - 5000 miles of normal motoring you have a significant problem. The oil is either leaking out or the engine is burning excessive oil or a combination. If there is no leak through faulty seals or by other means such as oil escaping into the cooling passages of the engine, then there is excessive burning.

These engines are known for excessive oil consumption because the problem is a common one in the 06, 05, 04 and previous year builds back to about 98/99. The dealers know all about this problem - as does BMW - and they will try to fob you off until the car is out of warranty because the fix is expensive.

From what you say the problem has not been fixed on your car. Document the oil loss and insist on your warranty rights because your engine is using excessive oil and this is NOT normal in a properly functioning motor with as few miles as yours has. Make it clear to the dealer that you are well aware that excessive oil consumption is a common problem in many of the 325 petrol engines and you want it fixed under warranty.

Then sell the car as these vehicles will cost you quite a bit in repairs once out of warranty and once you clock up around 60000 miles or more. If you have an auto you can expect major problems at about 65000 miles (later if you are lucky) and replacement of the transmission will be necessary. Once you notice any significant problem with the auto transmission it is on it's way out.

How to reset oil life on bmw x5 2005


Your BMW has a CBS (conditions based service) system, this is a new standard system for all BMW's produced in 2005 and on, these CBS system cannot be reset without being hooked up at the dealer, there is no currently offered aftermarket tool for this operation that I know of. I understand the frustration of this problem, I own a 2006 325i, with the same CBS system. Hope this helps, let me know

What type of oil do I use in my 2003 325I BMW and how do I reset the service engine light?


Most probably it is synthetic oil ad unless you own the tool to open the computer you will need a BMW tech to reset the light or at least a certified BMW mechanic.
