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 2017 340i xDrive’s oil should be changed according to BMW’s recommended oil change intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your 340i xDrive in the above table. Outside of BMW-recommended oil change intervals, your 340i xDrive may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, 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, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your BMW 340i xDrive. 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.

2017 BMW 340i xDrive Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my BMW 340i xDrive engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your 340i xDrive’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 340i 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. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my BMW 340i xDrive exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
