2007 BMW 335xi Oil Change

When to Change 2007 BMW 335xi Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your BMW 335xi’s oil changed? 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 2007 335xi’s oil should be changed according to BMW’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of BMW-recommended oil change intervals, your 335xi 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 see an excess amount of 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 at low speeds on long distance trips. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your BMW 335xi. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My BMW 335xi?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your BMW 335xi. BMW has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 2007 335xi. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, keep the engine cool, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During an oil change, a technician will change your 335xi's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, refill vital car fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your 335xi by taking into account your driving preferences, and odometer.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2007 BMW 335xi

  • Should I check my BMW 335xi motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your BMW 335xi 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 335xi oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my BMW 335xi exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. 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 damaged cylinder walls.
