1987 BMW 325es Maintenance Schedule

Here’s Why 1987 BMW 325es Scheduled Maintenance Matters

Take care of your BMW 325es and it'll take care of you. With the right maintenance at the right time, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your 325es. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your 325es, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1987 BMW 325es!

BMW knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. 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; 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 325es running for longer, increase your vehicle safety, and prevent common 1987 BMW 325es problems.

Overview of Essential BMW 325es Maintenance Needs

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1987 BMW 325es 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 325es's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1987 BMW 325es? 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 325es battery, and so can frequent short drives. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. 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 325es 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 1987 BMW 325es's engine run smoother. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1987 325es. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1987 BMW 325es.

Routine upkeep for your BMW 325es suspension and steering system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, provide the appropriate BMW 325es 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 325es's steering and suspension system.

If you skip recommended BMW 325es services, you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire BMW 325es cooling, heating, and climate control system. Is your BMW 325es radiator in need of replacement? We can take care of that. A/C smelling musty? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 1987 BMW 325es maintenance and repairs.

  • When should I have BMW 325es alignment checked? You know your BMW 325es better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving.

  • When should I use high mileage oil in my BMW 325es? Do you have more than 75,000 miles on your BMW 325es? If so, request to switch to high mileage oil at your next oil change. This type of oil is specially formulated to keep aging engine parts in the best possible condition.
  •  Why are my BMW dashboard lights on? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your BMW 325es 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.
