Oil Change Q&A for Your 2018 BMW 440i xDrive

  • Should I check my BMW 440i xDrive motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your 440i xDrive’s 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 440i xDrive oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my BMW 440i xDrive exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
