2014 BMW 528i xDrive Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my BMW 528i xDrive engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, overheat, 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? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my BMW 528i xDrive spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
