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

Bring your 1993 BMW 318i to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen.

Could your 1993 BMW 318i be ready for a new battery? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your BMW 318i battery, and so can frequent short drives.

Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty 318i) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your BMW 318i could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

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 1993 BMW 318i engine.

Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 1993 BMW 318i? We can help with that, too!

  • When should I have BMW 318i alignment checked? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage.

It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older BMW 318i engines.
