2010 BMW 528i Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my BMW 528i engine? 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 528i’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 oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my BMW 528i 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. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
