Oil Change Q&A for Your 2009 BMW 528i xDrive

  • Should I check my BMW 528i xDrive motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to BMW 528i xDrive engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my BMW 528i 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 the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
