2016 BMW 228i xDrive Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my BMW 228i xDrive engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to BMW 228i xDrive engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change BMW 228i xDrive oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of 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 exhaust smoke gray or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
