E36 m3 oil type

The BMW E36 M3 has a series of illuminated lamps under the speedometer that decrease as the time for your next maintenance visit approaches. A yellow lamp will indicate "OILSERVICE" or "INSPECTION" meaning maintenance is due. A red lamp will alert you that maintenance is overdue and needs servicing immediately.

FAQ e36 m3 oil type

What engine oil is best for my E36 M3?

If you are looking for a thicker engine oil for your E36 M3, Castrol’s Edge 10W-60 Fully Synthetic is arguable the best oil out there. This engine oil will be perfect for those who track or drive their E36 M3 hard regularly.

How do I check the oil level in my E36 M3?

How do I check my E36 M3 oil level? Ideally check oil level with a cold engine, when the engine oil has drained back down to the oil pan. When checking oil level with a warm engine, wait briefly for the oil to drain back down into the oil pan (during refueling for example).

How often should I change the oil on my E36 M3?

It is usually recommended that you change the engine oil at least every 5,000 km (3,000 miles) for non-synthetic and every 10,000 km (6,000 miles) for synthetic. The distances above are the maximum an E36 M3 should travel between oil changes, and many owners like to do it much sooner.

Can I use Dino oil in my E36?

Your E36 came with dino oil from the factory. Will it hurt to keep using it? No. But, full synthetic oil does have its advantages. Primarily, extended oil change intervals due to its chemical properties. If you’re a nerd like many of us and want to know more, there are many great sites that go VERY in-depth about oil types. I won’t cover that here.
