Your 2020 840i 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. No matter the mileage, your 840i xDrive may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice excess vehicle exhaust.

In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your BMW 840i xDrive. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

2020 BMW 840i xDrive Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my BMW 840i xDrive motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and cause your 840i xDrive’s engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my BMW oil on my own? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. 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 840i xDrive spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
