Here’s Why 1995 BMW 318i Scheduled Maintenance Matters

When it comes to your BMW 318i, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With proactive maintenance, your 318i could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. There's no need to guess when it's time to get 318i maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1995 BMW 318i!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, BMW themselves. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your 318i perform better, increase your vehicle safety, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 1995 BMW 318i problems later.

Overview of Essential BMW 318i Maintenance Needs

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1995 BMW 318i and a skilled technician will start the appointment with 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. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your 318i. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1995 BMW 318i. 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. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your BMW 318i battery. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. 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 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 1995 BMW 318i engine. To learn how often BMW recommends you have the oil changed in your 1995 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. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 1995 BMW 318i? We can help with that, too!

Periodic service to the steering system in your BMW 318i can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. 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, perform BMW 318i suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut 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.

If you fall behind on routine BMW 318i maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car. Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your BMW 318i engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning.

Take an active role in maintaining your 1995 BMW 318i. Get answers to common BMW 318i maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my BMW 318i? 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. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • When should I use high mileage oil in my BMW 318i? If your BMW 318i has ticked past 75,000 miles, consider switching to high mileage oil at your next oil change to give your engine what it needs to go another 75,000 (or more!). High mileage oil: make it a high priority!
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my BMW? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your BMW 318i in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
