Oil Change Q&A for Your 2018 BMW 328d xDrive

  • 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, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your 328d xDrive’s engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my BMW 328d xDrive oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my BMW 328d xDrive spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
