2014 BMW 328i GT xDrive Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my BMW 328i GT xDrive engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your BMW 328i GT xDrive engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change BMW 328i GT xDrive oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my BMW 328i GT xDrive exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. 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 worn cylinder walls.
