When to Change 2016 BMW 428i xDrive Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2016 BMW 428i xDrive? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. 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.

BMW recommends changing your 2016 428i xDrive’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of BMW-recommended oil change intervals, your 428i 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 an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than BMW recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your BMW 428i 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.

2016 BMW 428i xDrive Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my BMW 428i xDrive? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your BMW 428i xDrive engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my BMW oil on my own? 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 it’ll also help your car perform smoothly 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, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
