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.”

BMW recommends changing your 2018 328d’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your 328d may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than BMW recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your BMW 328d. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

2018 BMW 328d Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my BMW 328d motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to BMW 328d engine failure. 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 changed professionally can not only reduce 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? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
