BMW X5 Oil Capacity and Oil Type

The BMW X5 is one of BMW’s most popular models. This luxury SUV has been on the market since 1999, and it continues to be a top-selling vehicle in its class. One of the things that makes this car so desirable is its powerful engine.

The BMW X series is known for its high-performance engines, and the X model is no exception. If you own an X model, it’s important to use the correct type of oil in order to protect your engine. Great engine oil for a BMW X5 is made by Castrol and Liqui Moly. You can also use other types of synthetic oils that meet or exceed BMW’s specifications.

Some people mistakenly believe that they can save money by using a less expensive type of oil in their BMW X5, but this could actually damage the engine. Cheap oils often don’t have the same protective qualities as more expensive oils, and they may not be formulated specifically for BMW engines.

What Kind Of Oil Does a BMW X5 Take?

Add engine oils that have the following oil rating criteria: BMW Longlife-01 FE, BMW Longlife-14 FE+, and BMW Longlife-17FE+. The 50i gasoline engine is not compatible with the BMW Longlife-14 FE+ and BMW Longlife.

Up to 1 US quart/liter of engine oil with the following oil rating can be added if an engine oil suitable for continuous usage is not accessible: API SL, API SM, or API SN

The type of oil that a BMW X model takes is listed in the owner’s manual. If you don’t have the owner’s manual, you can find the information on this page. The correct oil for your car should meet or exceed BMW’s specifications.

Some people choose to use an aftermarket brand of oil instead of the type recommended by BMW. This can be risky, as aftermarket oils may not have been tested and approved by BMW. They may also not meet all of the engine manufacturer’s requirements.
