Oil Changes for 2016 BMW 528i xDrive

How Often to Get 2016 BMW 528i xDrive Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2016 BMW 528i xDrive? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Your 2016 528i xDrive’s oil should be changed according to BMW’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your 528i xDrive may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than BMW recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, enjoy off-roading, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your BMW 528i xDrive. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What Type of Oil Does My BMW 528i xDrive Need?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your BMW 528i xDrive. BMW has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best oil for 2016 BMW 528i xDrive vehicles. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, keep the engine cool, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During an oil change, a technician will change your 528i xDrive's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving preferences, and the number of miles on your odometer.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2016 BMW 528i xDrive

  • Should I check my BMW 528i xDrive motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. 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’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change BMW 528i xDrive oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might 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 528i xDrive spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
