BMW recommends changing your 2009 328i xDrive’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your 328i xDrive may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust.

Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your BMW 328i xDrive. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

2009 BMW 328i xDrive Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my BMW 328i xDrive motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the 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 xDrive engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change BMW 328i xDrive oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my BMW 328i xDrive 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 the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
