2016 BMW 328i xDrive Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my BMW 328i xDrive motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your 328i xDrive’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my BMW oil on my own? 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. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce 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? 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 the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
