2016 BMW 328d xDrive Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my BMW 328d xDrive? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts.

That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change BMW 328d xDrive oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my BMW exhaust smoke gray or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
