2017 BMW 230i Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Tune-Ups to Help Your BMW 230i 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 might be time to change your ways, especially if you want your 2017 BMW 230i’s engine to last for a long time. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your 230i’s engine. Tune-ups give your engine a boost in efficiency, which can mean better fuel economy (a win for you) and lower emissions (a win for the environment). When you get routine engine tune-ups based on BMW's recommendations, you’re taking vital steps toward keeping your 230i’s engine running smoother, longer.

Engine Tune-Up for BMW 230i

Your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care location has several options to choose from when it comes to BMW 230i engine tune-up services. The first is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. This includes the installation of new spark plugs and a visual inspection of your engine’s components, plus a lifetime warranty on parts*. The second service focuses on your 230i'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 230i’s fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. This goes a long way in boosting your fuel system’s overall performance. Here’s something to remember when choosing services: the mileage and service history of your 230i 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.

Where to Get a BMW 230i Tune-Up

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for your next 2017 230i engine tune-up. Consult your vehicle’s recommended service schedule from BMW, or make a service appointment if you notice any of these symptoms from your engine: stalling or shaky idling when you’re stopped, diminished fuel economy, an illuminated check engine light on your dashboard, or a knocking sound when the engine is running.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 2017 BMW 230is

  • Will it hurt my BMW 230i to drive with old spark plugs? Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so. Spark plugs are small but mighty. The spark of electricity that the plug emits across a small gap creates the ignition for the combustion needed to start your car. Without that spark, your car won't start.
  • What do I do if I see a pool of liquid under my BMW 230i? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your BMW 230i. 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 230i 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.
