What is the maintenance schedule for the 1993 BMW 318is?

Here’s Why 1993 BMW 318is Scheduled Maintenance Matters

You want your BMW 318is to last as long as possible. With proactive maintenance, your 318is could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. 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. Just follow your 1993 BMW 318is maintenance schedule!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, BMW themselves. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your 318is running for longer, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 1993 BMW 318is problems.

Overview of Essential BMW 318is Maintenance Needs

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1993 BMW 318is and a skilled technician will start the appointment 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. 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 1993 BMW 318is? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your 318is may need a replacement battery sooner. 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 318is 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 318is won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1993 BMW 318is running newer, longer. To learn how often BMW recommends you have the oil changed in your 1993 318is, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. 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. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1993 BMW 318is.

Maintaining your BMW 318is steering and suspension system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide the appropriate BMW 318is steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your BMW 318is's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended BMW 318is services, you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. 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 318is engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Is it time to replace the radiator in your BMW 318is? We’ve got your back. A/C smelling musty? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 1993 BMW 318is maintenance.
