Oil Change Q&A for Your 2008 BMW 335i

  • Why check the motor oil level in my BMW 335i? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and cause your 335i’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my BMW oil on my own? 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 it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my BMW exhaust smoke gray 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. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
