Oil Change Q&A for Your 2008 BMW 328i

  • What can low oil do to my BMW 328i engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to BMW 328i engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my BMW 328i oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of 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 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
