2017 BMW 430i xDrive Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my BMW 430i xDrive? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your BMW 430i xDrive engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my BMW 430i 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 professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my BMW 430i xDrive spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is 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, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
