BMW recommends having your 2004 BMW 330xi’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your 330xi may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust.

More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your BMW 330xi. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

2004 BMW 330xi Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my BMW 330xi? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to BMW 330xi engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my BMW 330xi 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 professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my BMW 330xi exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
