2010 BMW 528i xDrive Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my BMW 528i xDrive? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your BMW 528i xDrive engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change BMW 528i xDrive oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of 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 528i xDrive spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
