1995 BMW 318is Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Tune Into Your BMW 318is

Is your engine overdue for a tune-up? If you usually wait until your car has an issue to take it in for service, it might be time to change your ways, particularly if you want to keep your 1995 BMW 318is in tip-top shape. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your 318is’s engine. They're designed to help your engine start easier and run more efficiently, which can mean better fuel economy (a win for you) and lower emissions (a win for the environment). When you follow the guidelines specified by BMW for your vehicle’s tune-up schedule, you’re taking vital steps toward keeping your 318is’s engine running smoother, longer.

Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your BMW 318is

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 1995 BMW 318is. One option is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. 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 318is. Specifically, we replace the fuel filter and air filter. The third tune-up option is a fuel system cleaning service, which is a three-step process that removes varnish, dirt, and carbon deposits on your 318is's fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. This can improve your fuel system’s performance (and therefore, your engine’s performance). Consider this when choosing a tune-up service for your 318is: your vehicle’s maintenance record and mileage can determine which service is best. A one-size-fits-all engine tune-up procedure doesn’t necessarily exist. Ask one of our technicians what your vehicle needs, based on your driving habits and your car’s current condition.

Where to Get a BMW 318is Tune-Up

If you’re looking for 1995 318is engine tune-up services, head to Firestone Complete Auto Care. Consult your vehicle’s recommended service schedule from BMW, or make a service appointment if you notice any of these symptoms from your engine: decreased gas mileage, "rough" idling or stalling when stopped, knocking noises in the engine, or a lit up check engine light on your dashboard.

*Ask a Firestone Complete Auto Care teammate about full terms and conditions for warranties.

1995 BMW 318is Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • When should BMW 318is spark plugs be replaced? When it’s time to replace the spark plugs, don’t delay. These small (but vital!) parts provide the electric spark that your car needs in order to start, and old spark plugs can prevent your car from starting at all. Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so.
  • What should I do if I see leaks under my 318is? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your BMW 318is. It could signal a coolant leak, brake fluid leak, or an oil leak. Let any one of these leaks linger and it could cause engine damage.
  • What do hard starts and stops do to my 318is engine? Hard starts and stops put extra wear and tear on engine components. Smooth, gradual starts and stops, on the other hand, are a great way to help your engine run better. They can also help maximize your fuel economy.
