Is it tune-up time? If you tend to ignore your car until something goes wrong, now is the time to work on that habit, particularly if you want to keep your 1997 BMW 318i in tip-top shape. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your 318i. Tune-ups help your engine start smoothly and run 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’re taking vital steps toward keeping your 318i’s engine running smoother, longer.
Your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care location has several options to choose from when it comes to BMW 318i engine tune-up services. The standard Firestone Tune-Up is one service option. This includes the installation of new spark plugs and a visual inspection of your engine’s components, plus a lifetime warranty on parts*. Another service option pays special attention to the filters in your 318i. Specifically, we replace the fuel filter and air filter. Our third service is a thorough cleaning of the fuel system. During this type of tune-up, we use a three-step process to get rid of harmful varnish, dirt, and carbon deposit buildup in your 318i’s fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. This goes a long way in boosting your fuel system’s overall performance. Here’s something to remember when choosing services: the mileage and service history of your 318i can determine what kind of service it needs. This means that a tune-up service that’s a great fit for another car may not be optimal for yours. Talk to a technician about your driving style, mileage, and service history to learn more about your vehicle's specific needs.
Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for your next 1997 318i engine tune-up. Consult your vehicle’s recommended service schedule from BMW, or make a service appointment if you notice any of these symptoms from your engine: stalling or shaky idling when you’re stopped, diminished fuel economy, an illuminated check engine light on your dashboard, or a knocking sound when the engine is running.
