Oil Change Q&A for Your 2017 BMW 330i xDrive

  • What can low oil do to my BMW 330i xDrive engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your 330i xDrive’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my BMW 330i xDrive oil at home? 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. 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? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
