2008 BMW 335xi Oil Change Service

How Often to Change 2008 BMW 335xi Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2008 BMW 335xi? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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 2008 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, smell oil inside the vehicle, 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, enjoy off-roading, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt 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 Type of Oil Does My BMW 335xi Need?

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 recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the ideal engine oil for your 2008 335xi. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, keep the engine cool, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During your oil change service, an auto technician will change your 335xi’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, check all of your other filters, top-off essential fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your 335xi by considering your driving habits, and the number of miles on your odometer.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2008 BMW 335xi

  • Why check the motor oil level in my BMW 335xi? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your 335xi’s engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change BMW 335xi oil at home? 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 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 335xi exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. 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, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
