2003 BMW 330xi Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my BMW 330xi engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to BMW 330xi engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my BMW 330xi oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my BMW exhaust smoke gray or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
