Your 2013 320i xDrive’s oil should be changed according to BMW’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2013 BMW 320i xDrive

  • What can low oil do to my BMW 320i xDrive engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your BMW 320i xDrive engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change BMW 320i 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 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 320i xDrive exhaust smoke grayish 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 the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
