Reducing the friction and heat that parts of your engine produce by rubbing together is the main purpose of the oil in your BMW's engine. This is why routine maintenance and changing your oil on a regular basis is so important. When you're changing your oil, it's also important to replace your oil filter. An oil filter is something that helps to remove contaminants that end up making their way through to your engine area, like metal and dust. An oil filter that is worn out or old will likely let these contaminants pass through, which can scrape against your engine and cause it to wear out quicker. Getting your filter replaced every time you change your oil is the best bet for keeping it functioning properly and keeping your oil clean. There might be times you need to replace the oil sooner than you thought, however, so it's important to pay attention to some warning signs of a potential problem. You might notice loud scraping noises that sound like metal rubbing against metal, which can be a sign that parts aren't receiving the lubrication they need. You also might experience reduced gas mileage or a drop in power on the road.
