Engine Tune-Up Service for Your 2008 BMW 128i

Tune-Ups to Help Your BMW 128i Run Better

Is your engine overdue for a tune-up? If you're the type of driver who waits for something to go wrong with your vehicle, it could be time for a new way of doing things, especially if you want your 2008 BMW 128i’s engine to last for a long time. Regular engine tune-ups can optimize your 128i’s power on the road. They're designed to help your engine start easier and run more efficiently, so you can enjoy improved fuel economy and lower emissions. When you follow the guidelines specified by BMW for your vehicle’s tune-up schedule, you invest in your 128i's long-term health and engine performance.

Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your BMW 128i

Your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care location has several options to choose from when it comes to BMW 128i engine tune-up services. The standard Firestone Tune-Up is one service option. It includes a complete visual inspection of engine components, installation of new spark plugs, and a lifetime warranty on parts*. The second service focuses on your 128i's filters, specifically replacing the air filter and fuel filter. Yet another service is a fuel system cleaning process, which involves removing varnish, dirt, and carbon deposits that have built up inside the fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate in your 128i. This can improve your fuel system’s performance (and therefore, your engine’s performance). Here’s something to remember when choosing services: the mileage and service history of your 128i can determine what kind of service it needs. A one-size-fits-all engine tune-up procedure doesn’t necessarily exist. Talk to a technician about your driving style, mileage, and service history to learn more about your vehicle's specific needs.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 2008 BMW 128is

  • What happens if my BMW 128i spark plugs fail? When it’s time to replace the spark plugs, don’t delay. These small (but vital!) parts provide the electric spark that your car needs in order to start, and old spark plugs can prevent your car from starting at all. Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so.
  • What should I do if I see leaks under my 128i? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your BMW 128i. It could signal a coolant leak, brake fluid leak, or an oil leak. Let any one of these leaks linger and it could cause engine damage.
  • What do hard starts and stops do to my 128i engine? Hard stops and starts can lead to premature wear on your engine’s components. Lighten up that lead foot and opt for steady, fluid starts and stops instead. Your engine (and your passengers!) will thank you.
