2014 BMW 328i xDrive Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my BMW 328i xDrive? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and eventually lead to BMW 328i xDrive engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my BMW 328i xDrive oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. 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 exhaust smoke gray or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of 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.
