BMW X3 2013

Asked by GMendoz2019 Sep 02, 2019 at 11:39 PM about the 2013 BMW X3 xDrive28i AWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My BMW X3 2013 with 50,000 miles started
smoking after an oil change, and has
continued. It’s only on start up, and worsens
if the car hasn’t been driven in a few days.
The smoke is bluish white and comes out in a
big puff and then it dissipates. I opened the
hood and noticed a small amount of oil
oozing around the oil filter. I’ve also noticed
black soot on the back end of the car.
Checked the oil and it’s not milky. I have had
to replace coolant more frequently than
normal I twice in a year. Any

I had the similar black smog came from the tails of my 2017 X3 for several times and drop to a locate dealer for inspection. I heard it was a recall. You can check national recall center website with your VIN#. You never know if it is the case.
