2013 BMW 528i xDrive Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my BMW 528i xDrive engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and cause your 528i 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 528i xDrive oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my BMW exhaust smoke gray or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
