2010 BMW 128i Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Tune-Ups to Help Your BMW 128i Run Better

Is it time for an engine tune-up? If you usually wait until your car has an issue to take it in for service, it could be time for a new way of doing things, especially if you drive a 2010 BMW 128i. Regular engine tune-ups can optimize your 128i’s power on the road. Tune-ups help your engine start smoothly and run 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 can rest assured you’re investing in your 128i’s long-term engine performance.

Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your BMW 128i

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 2010 BMW 128i. The first is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. 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. Our third service is a thorough cleaning of the fuel system. During this type of tune-up, we use a three-step process to get rid of harmful varnish, dirt, and carbon deposit buildup in your 128i’s fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. The result? Restored fuel system performance. Keep in mind that your 128i's mileage and maintenance history can uniquely impact its tune-up 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 2010 BMW 128is

  • What happens if my BMW 128i spark plugs fail? Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so. Without the spark of electricity created by spark plugs, your engine doesn’t have the combustion it needs to start — which could leave you stranded on the road. Always replace your spark plugs on time based on BMW’s recommendations.
  • What do I do if I see a pool of liquid under my BMW 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.
  • Are some driving habits better for my BMW 128i engine than others? You can make your driving habits more engine-friendly. Hard starts and stops can increase the stress on engine parts, especially over many years. Boost your fuel economy and care for your engine by using gradual, smooth starts and stops instead.
