Your 2014 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 excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than BMW recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. 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.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2014 BMW 328i

  • Why check the motor oil level in my BMW 328i? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and cause your BMW 328i 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? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. 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 caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
