What to Know About 1988 BMW 325iX Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your BMW 325iX, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your 325iX could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your 325iX, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1988 BMW 325iX!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by BMW, your vehicle manufacturer. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your 325iX's life, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 1988 BMW 325iX problems.

Overview of Essential BMW 325iX Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1988 BMW 325iX for factory-recommended routine maintenance and a skilled technician will start the appointment 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 325iX's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Could your 1988 BMW 325iX 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. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your BMW 325iX battery. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your 325iX stranded. Your BMW 325iX won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can help your 1988 BMW 325iX's engine run smoother. To learn how often BMW recommends you have the oil changed in your 1988 325iX, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 1988 BMW 325iX? We can help with that, too!
