2016 BMW 335i GT xDrive Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my BMW 335i GT xDrive? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine.

That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my BMW 335i GT xDrive 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 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 335i GT xDrive exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
