Your Guide to 1992 BMW 318is Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your BMW 318is and it'll take care of you. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your 318is. 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 318is, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1992 BMW 318is!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by BMW, your vehicle manufacturer. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your 318is perform better, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 1992 BMW 318is problems.

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

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1992 BMW 318is for factory-recommended routine maintenance and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your 318is. 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.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1992 BMW 318is? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your 318is may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your BMW 318is battery, and so can frequent short drives. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your 318is stranded. Your BMW 318is 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 1992 BMW 318is engine. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1992 318is. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1992 BMW 318is.

Routine upkeep for your BMW 318is suspension and steering system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, provide BMW 318is steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. Components within your BMW 318is's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended BMW 318is services, you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally.

Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your BMW 318is’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too.
