What to Know About 1994 BMW 318i Scheduled Maintenance

You want your BMW 318i to last as long as possible. With proactive maintenance, your 318i could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. But how do you know what service to get and when? 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 1994 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. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your 318i's life, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 1994 BMW 318i problems.

Overview of Essential BMW 318i Maintenance Needs

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1994 BMW 318i and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your 318i’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Could your 1994 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. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your BMW 318i battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your BMW 318i could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1994 BMW 318i engine. To learn how often BMW recommends you have the oil changed in your 1994 318i, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. 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 1994 BMW 318i? We can help with that, too!

Periodic service to the steering system in your BMW 318i can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, provide BMW 318i steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your BMW 318i's steering and suspension system.

Without routine BMW 318i maintenance, you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire BMW 318i cooling, heating, and climate control system. Need a new BMW 318i radiator? We’ve got your back. A/C smelling musty? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 1994 BMW 318i maintenance.
