Need more info about 2007 BMW 328xi oil changes? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

BMW recommends having your 2007 BMW 328xi’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your 328xi may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than BMW recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, enjoy off-roading, or drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your BMW 328xi. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

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

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2007 BMW 328xi motor oil: either synthetic or conventional.

You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your 328xi by taking into account your driving style, and odometer.

2007 BMW 328xi Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my BMW 328xi? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your 328xi’s engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • 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 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 328xi exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
