2012 BMW 335i Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my BMW 335i? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your BMW 335i engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • 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. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my BMW 335i exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
