Annual Oil Change TSB

Contributed by: Fred Meloan

BMW issued SI 00 04 01 on October
25, 2001 to clarify the oil change situation for low annual mileage owners.

ďA limited number of BMW owners accumulate very low mileage on their BMWs
annually, in some situations insufficient for the Service Interval Indicator
System to call for an Oil Service or Inspection. However, all BMWs should
have an engine oil change at a minimum of once a year, regardless of whether
synthetic or petroleum-based oil is used.Ē

As a part of the BMW Maintenance Program your dealer should perform the annual
oil service and update/stamp the Service and Warranty Information Statement

If your driving pattern remains constant (i.e., low mileage) the Service
Interval Indicator System will under most circumstances ( i.e., excluding
really low annual mileages) call for an Oil Service within the next 12 months
at which time your BMW Centerís service department should perform the oil
service (including oil filter replacement), update/stamp the Service and
Warranty Information Statement and RE-SET THE SERVICE INDICATOR SYSTEM.

If the annual oil service occurs within 60 days of the time when the Service
Indicator System would call for an Oil Service or Inspection, then the
upcoming service should be performed and the Service Indicator System reset.

In situations where you request a more frequent oil service (at your own
expense) than as called for by the Service Interval Indicator System, the same
logic applies Ė your dealer should not reset the Service Indicator System
until the maintenance is performed that is called for by the System. This is
especially critical for vehicles still covered by the BMW Maintenance Program.

Please see your BMW Centerís service department for more details or questions.
