Oil Change Q&A for Your 2018 BMW 320i xDrive

  • Why check the motor oil level in my BMW 320i xDrive? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your 320i xDrive’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my BMW 320i xDrive oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might 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 also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my BMW 320i xDrive spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
