BMW Engine Oil and Fluids

Modern engines place extreme pressure on the oils and lubricants that keep them running and protect them. You need to have lubricants that respond to the task. Castrol manufactures a range of BMW engine oils and BMW brake fluids for all models of BMW cars.


IS BMW OIL FULLY SYNTHETIC? 


Castrol engineers work directly with auto makers to create the strongest possible synthetic engine oils and our range of BMW engine oils is fully synthetic. These oils offer significant benefits like extended drain intervals, better performance in high operating temperatures and enhanced protection for engines under extreme stress. 


HOW OFTEN DOES A BMW NEED AN OIL CHANGE?


This will depend on the make and model of your car. Most modern cars will go 10,000 miles without the need for an oil change but older cars may need more frequent oil changes. You should consult your vehicle owner’s handbook.


BMW BRAKE FLUID


Brakes are essential for any car and this makes brake fluid one of your BMW’s most essential components. A recommended brake fluid has to resist the moisture that can cause vapour lock brake failure, protect against corrosion and withstand high brake temperatures. Castrol’s Dot 4 brake fluid for use in most BMW cars meets this challenge. It is liquid engineered to prevent vapour lock and protect your brake system. Please check your owner’s handbook for reference.


WHICH ENGINE OIL FOR MY BMW? 


Our BMW engine oils match the needs of all kinds of motoring. Whether your focus is on outstanding performance, efficiency in handling frequent stop start conditions or combating the build up of sludge, there’s a BMW engine oil for every requirement and all variations in climatic conditions.You can find out much more about Castrol’s range of engine and brake fluids and coolants for 1 Series, 3 Series, 5 Series, X5 and other BMW models by using our helpful Fluids Finder.
