Take care of your BMW 325 and it'll take care of you. With the right maintenance at the right time, your 325 could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your BMW 325

Bring your 1988 BMW 325 to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services 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. 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 1988 BMW 325 be ready for a new battery? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your BMW 325 battery, and so can frequent short drives. 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 325) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your BMW 325 could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1988 BMW 325 engine. To learn how often BMW recommends you have the oil changed in your 1988 325, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. 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 1988 BMW 325.

Routine upkeep for your BMW 325 suspension and steering system can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle.

This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my BMW 325? 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 does my BMW 325 need high mileage oil? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older BMW 325 engines.
  • Can BMW dashboard warning lights wait? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your BMW 325 in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
