After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Your 2000 328Ci’s oil should be changed according to BMW’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your 328Ci may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice excess vehicle exhaust.

Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your BMW 328Ci. 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.

2000 BMW 328Ci Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my BMW 328Ci motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and cause your 328Ci’s engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change BMW 328Ci 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 professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my BMW exhaust smoke gray or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
