1991 BMW 525i Q&A

1991 BMW 525i Question: Oil change

My wife has a 1991 BMW 525i. I'm wanting to change the oil before cold weather sets in. I'm not mechanical whatsoever so I was wondering if anyone could tell me how I would go about changing the oil in this car. I've changed my oil in my jeep grand cherokee but the BMW looks quite different. Thanks! -

Its very easy! The filter is a canister type and is located on the front top of the cylinder head. Get a oil filter kit from BMW. remove and replace it FIRST to include the o-rings on the filter insert so the oil drains into the pan then just drain the pan and refill it- It uses more than 5 quarts so make sure you fill it properly!
