Take care of your BMW 318is and it'll take care of you. With proactive maintenance, your 318is could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. But how do you know what service to get and when?

Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1995 BMW 318is!

Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your 318is's life, increase your vehicle safety, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 1995 BMW 318is problems later.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your BMW 318is

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1995 BMW 318is and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your 318is’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Could your 1995 BMW 318is be ready for a new battery? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. 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. 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. Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty 318is) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your BMW 318is won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can help your 1995 BMW 318is's engine run smoother. To learn how often BMW recommends you have the oil changed in your 1995 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. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1995 BMW 318is.

Periodic service to the steering system in your BMW 318is can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. 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. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your BMW 318is's steering and suspension system.

If you fall behind on routine BMW 318is 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. We can help you with all those issues. 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.
