How Often to Get 2017 BMW 328d Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2017 BMW 328d? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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 2017 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. Your 328d may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than BMW recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, enjoy off-roading, 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.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My BMW 328d?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your BMW 328d. BMW has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 2017 328d. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, keep the engine cool, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During an oil change, a technician will change your 328d's oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your 328d by considering your driving style, and mileage.

2017 BMW 328d Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my BMW 328d? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your 328d’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 oil on my own? 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 with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my BMW 328d spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. 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 old cylinder walls.
