Your 2013 328i’s oil should be changed according to BMW’s recommended oil change intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your 328i 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 knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than BMW recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your BMW 328i. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

2013 BMW 328i Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my BMW 328i motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and cause your BMW 328i engine to fail. 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 it’ll also help your car perform smoothly 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. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
