2021 BMW 228i xDrive Gran Coupe Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my BMW 228i xDrive Gran Coupe? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to BMW 228i xDrive Gran Coupe engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my BMW 228i xDrive Gran Coupe oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my BMW 228i xDrive Gran Coupe exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
