2016 BMW 330e Oil Change Service

When to Change 2016 BMW 330e Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your BMW 330e’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

BMW recommends having your 2016 BMW 330e’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of BMW-recommended oil change intervals, your 330e 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 vehicle, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by BMW if you regularly haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, go off-roading a lot, or go long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your BMW 330e. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What’s the Right Type of Oil for 2016 BMW 330e?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2016 BMW 330e motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. BMW has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 2016 BMW 330e vehicles. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, keep the engine cool, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During your oil change service, a technician will change your 330e's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off important fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your 330e by taking into account your driving preferences, and mileage.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2016 BMW 330e

  • What can low oil do to my BMW 330e engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to BMW 330e engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my BMW 330e oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my BMW 330e exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
