Your 2018 320i’s oil should be changed according to BMW’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of BMW-recommended oil change intervals, your 320i may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than BMW recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your BMW 320i. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

2018 BMW 320i Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my BMW 320i? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and cause your 320i’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 oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my BMW 320i spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? 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, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
