When to Change 2006 BMW 330xi Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2006 BMW 330xi? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than 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.

Your 2006 330xi’s oil should be changed according to BMW’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of BMW-recommended oil change intervals, your 330xi may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by BMW if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your BMW 330xi. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

2006 BMW 330xi Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my BMW 330xi? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your 330xi’s engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my BMW oil on my own? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. 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 with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my BMW exhaust smoke gray or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
