Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2013 BMW 328i xDrive? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. 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.”

BMW recommends changing your 2013 328i xDrive’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above.

Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your BMW 328i xDrive. 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.

2013 BMW 328i xDrive Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my BMW 328i xDrive engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to BMW 328i xDrive engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change BMW 328i xDrive oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. 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 328i 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. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
