2000 BMW 328i Oil Change Service

When to Change 2000 BMW 328i Engine Oil

Need more info about 2000 BMW 328i oil changes? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know all about 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 having your 2000 BMW 328i’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of BMW-recommended oil change intervals, your 328i may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice an unusual amount of 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, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your BMW 328i. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My BMW 328i?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your BMW 328i. BMW has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 2000 328i. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, regulate engine temperature, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During your oil change service, a technician will change your 328i's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, refill vital car fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your 328i by considering your driving style, weather and road conditions,

2000 BMW 328i Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my BMW 328i engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to BMW 328i engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my BMW 328i 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. 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 328i exhaust smoke grayish 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 damaged cylinder walls.
