1985 BMW 318i Tune-Up & Engine Service

Tune Into Your BMW 318i

Is it tune-up time? If you usually wait until your car has an issue to take it in for service, it might be time to change your ways, particularly if you want to keep your 1985 BMW 318i in tip-top shape. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your 318i’s engine. They're designed to help your engine start easier and run more efficiently, which can lead to lower emission levels and better fuel economy. When you follow the guidelines specified by BMW for your vehicle’s tune-up schedule, you invest in your 318i's long-term health and engine performance.

Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your BMW 318i

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 1985 BMW 318i. One option is the standard Firestone Tune-Up.

A second service option replaces the air and fuel filter in your 318i. The third tune-up option is a fuel system cleaning service, which is a three-step process that removes varnish, dirt, and carbon deposits on your 318i's fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. The result? Restored fuel system performance. Keep in mind that your 318i's mileage and maintenance history can uniquely impact its tune-up needs.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 1985 BMW 318is

  • Will it hurt my BMW 318i to drive with old spark plugs? 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 318i? Puddles could indicate an oil leak, coolant leak, or brake fluid leak– all of which can critically hurt your engine. Have your engine inspected as soon as you spot a pool of liquid in your usual parking spot.
  • Are some driving habits better for my BMW 318i engine than others? Hard starts and stops put extra wear and tear on engine components. Smooth, gradual starts and stops, on the other hand, are a great way to help your engine run better. They can also help maximize your fuel economy.
