2017 BMW 328d xDrive Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my BMW 328d xDrive? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your BMW 328d xDrive 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 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 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 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. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
