2016 BMW 320i xDrive Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my BMW 320i xDrive? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and cause your 320i xDrive’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change BMW 320i xDrive 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 also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my BMW 320i xDrive spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of 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 old cylinder walls.
