Need more info about 2018 BMW 340i xDrive oil changes? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Your 2018 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 knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than BMW recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, enjoy off-roading, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage 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.

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

  • Why check the motor oil level in my BMW 340i xDrive? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your BMW 340i xDrive engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my BMW 340i xDrive oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil 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 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 caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
