BMW recommends having your 2016 BMW 328i GT xDrive’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your 328i GT xDrive may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by BMW if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, go off-roading a lot, or go long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your BMW 328i GT xDrive. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2016 BMW 328i GT xDrive

  • Why check the motor oil level in my BMW 328i GT xDrive? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and cause your BMW 328i GT xDrive engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my 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 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 exhaust smoke gray 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. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
