Oil Change Q&A for Your 2018 BMW 330e

  • Should I check my BMW 330e motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to BMW 330e engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • 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 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 330e exhaust smoke grayish 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 the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
