Oil Change Q&A for Your 2019 BMW 230i xDrive

  • What can low oil do to my BMW 230i xDrive engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your BMW 230i xDrive engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change BMW 230i xDrive oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my BMW 230i xDrive spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
