What to Know About 1987 BMW 325 Scheduled Maintenance

You want your BMW 325 to last as long as possible. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your 325 could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark.

Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1987 BMW 325!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, BMW themselves. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; however, recommended maintenance usually includes 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 325 running for longer, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 1987 BMW 325 problems.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your BMW 325 Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1987 BMW 325 for factory-recommended routine maintenance and our technicians will jump right in 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. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your 325's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Could your 1987 BMW 325 be ready for a new battery? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your BMW 325 battery. 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 325 stranded. Your BMW 325 won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can help your 1987 BMW 325's engine run smoother. To learn how often BMW recommends you have the oil changed in your 1987 325, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 1987 BMW 325? We can help with that, too!

Periodic service to the steering system in your BMW 325 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 BMW 325 steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. Components within your BMW 325's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended BMW 325 services, you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally.

Take an active role in maintaining your 1987 BMW 325. Get answers to common BMW 325 maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • When should I have BMW 325 alignment checked? You know your BMW 325 better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving. Have your alignment checked (and adjusted if necessary) as soon as you notice a pulling steering wheel to prevent suspension damage or uneven tire wear.
  • When should I use high mileage oil in my BMW 325? If your BMW 325 has ticked past 75,000 miles, consider switching to high mileage oil at your next oil change to give your engine what it needs to go another 75,000 (or more!). High mileage oil: make it a high priority!
  •  Why are my BMW dashboard lights on? It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible. An illuminated dashboard light means something in your vehicle isn't functioning like it should. Letting problems linger can mean bad news for your BMW 325, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
