Oil Change Q&A for Your 2018 BMW 340i GT xDrive

  • What can low oil do to my BMW 340i GT xDrive engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to BMW 340i GT xDrive engine failure. 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 buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my BMW 340i GT xDrive spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
