What is the recommended maintenance schedule for the 1998 BMW 328i?

Here’s Why 1998 BMW 328i Scheduled Maintenance Matters

Take care of your BMW 328i and it'll take care of you. With the right maintenance at the right time, your 328i 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 328i, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1998 BMW 328i!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by BMW, your vehicle manufacturer. 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 oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your 328i perform better, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1998 BMW 328i problems in the future.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your BMW 328i Running Newer, Longer

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1998 BMW 328i 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 328i's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Could your 1998 BMW 328i be ready for a new battery? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your BMW 328i battery. 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. 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 328i won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1998 BMW 328i running newer, longer. See BMW's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1998 328i in the chart at the top 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 can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1998 BMW 328i.

Periodic service to the steering system in your BMW 328i can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, perform BMW 328i suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Components within your BMW 328i's steering system require regular maintenance.

Without routine BMW 328i maintenance, you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your BMW 328i engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Is your BMW 328i radiator in need of replacement? We can take care of that. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 1998 BMW 328i maintenance.

So visit us regularly, or visit us urgently. Many locations are open on weekends and in the evening.
