1989 BMW 325i Maintenance Schedule

What is the maintenance schedule for the 1989 BMW 325i?

Here’s Why 1989 BMW 325i Scheduled Maintenance Matters

You want your BMW 325i to last as long as possible. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your 325i has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. There's no need to guess when it's time to get 325i maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1989 BMW 325i!

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; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your 325i perform better, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 1989 BMW 325i problems.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your BMW 325i Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1989 BMW 325i for factory-recommended routine maintenance and an expert technician will begin by performing 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 325i's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1989 BMW 325i. If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and 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 325i 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, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your 325i stranded. Your BMW 325i won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1989 BMW 325i engine. To learn how often BMW recommends you have the oil changed in your 1989 325i, 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. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil.

Periodic service to the steering system in your BMW 325i can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, perform BMW 325i suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your BMW 325i's steering and suspension system.

Take an active role in maintaining your 1989 BMW 325i. Get answers to common BMW 325i maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my BMW 325i? You know your BMW 325i 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 325i 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 325i engines.
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my BMW? Because there might be a problem under the hood. Those warning lights are there for a reason! As soon as you notice that one’s illuminated, take your BMW 325i to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
