2008 BMW 328xi Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my BMW 328xi? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to BMW 328xi engine failure. 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? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my BMW 328xi spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
