How Often to Get 2014 BMW 328d Oil Changes

Not sure how or where to get your BMW 328d’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Your 2014 328d’s oil should be changed according to BMW’s recommended oil change intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your 328d in the above table. Outside of BMW-recommended oil change intervals, your 328d may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by BMW if you regularly haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your BMW 328d. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

2014 BMW 328d Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my BMW 328d? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your BMW 328d engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my BMW 328d 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 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 328d exhaust smoke grayish 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. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
