Engine Tune-Up Service for Your 1998 BMW 328i

Tune-Ups to Help Your BMW 328i Run Better

Is your engine overdue for a tune-up? If you usually wait until your car has an issue to take it in for service, now is the time to work on that habit, especially if you want your 1998 BMW 328i’s engine to last for a long time. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your 328i. Tune-ups give your engine a boost in efficiency, which can lead to lower emission levels and better fuel economy. When you take your car for regular engine tune-ups as recommended by BMW, you’re taking vital steps toward keeping your 328i’s engine running smoother, longer.

Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your BMW 328i

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 1998 BMW 328i. The standard Firestone Tune-Up is one service option. It includes a complete visual inspection of engine components, installation of new spark plugs, and a lifetime warranty on parts*. The second service focuses on your 328i's filters, specifically replacing the air filter and fuel filter. Yet another service is a fuel system cleaning process, which involves removing varnish, dirt, and carbon deposits that have built up inside the fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate in your 328i. The result? Restored fuel system performance. Keep in mind that your 328i's mileage and maintenance history can uniquely impact its tune-up needs. A one-size-fits-all engine tune-up procedure doesn’t necessarily exist. Chat with a Firestone technician before you jump into a specific service to ensure your engine tune-up money is well-spent.

1998 BMW 328i Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • What happens if my BMW 328i spark plugs fail? Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so. Without the spark of electricity created by spark plugs, your engine doesn’t have the combustion it needs to start — which could leave you stranded on the road. Always replace your spark plugs on time based on BMW’s recommendations.
  • What do I do if I see a pool of liquid under my BMW 328i? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your BMW 328i. It could signal a coolant leak, brake fluid leak, or an oil leak. Let any one of these leaks linger and it could cause engine damage.
  • What do hard starts and stops do to my 328i engine? Hard starts and stops put extra wear and tear on engine components. Smooth, gradual starts and stops, on the other hand, are a great way to help your engine run better. They can also help maximize your fuel economy.
