What is the recommended maintenance schedule for the 1991 BMW 318i?

Here’s Why 1991 BMW 318i Scheduled Maintenance Matters

When it comes to your BMW 318i, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your 318i. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your 318i, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1991 BMW 318i!

BMW knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your 318i running for longer, increase your vehicle safety, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 1991 BMW 318i problems later.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your BMW 318i Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1991 BMW 318i for factory-recommended routine maintenance and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your 318i's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Could your 1991 BMW 318i be ready for a new battery? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your 318i may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your BMW 318i battery, and so can frequent short drives. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your 318i stranded. Your BMW 318i won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1991 BMW 318i engine. To learn how often BMW recommends you have the oil changed in your 1991 318i, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 1991 BMW 318i? We can help with that, too!

You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, provide the appropriate BMW 318i steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication.
