BMW recommends having your 2019 BMW 340i GT xDrive’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of BMW-recommended oil change intervals, your 340i GT xDrive may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice excess 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, go off-roading a lot, or go long distances at low speeds. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your BMW 340i GT xDrive. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2019 BMW 340i GT xDrive

  • Why check the motor oil level in my BMW 340i GT xDrive? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to BMW 340i GT xDrive engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my BMW 340i GT xDrive oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might 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 also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my BMW exhaust smoke gray 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 the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
