2013 BMW 335i xDrive Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my BMW 335i xDrive engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and eventually lead to BMW 335i xDrive engine failure. 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 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 335i xDrive spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
