Here’s Why 1999 BMW 328i Scheduled Maintenance Matters

When it comes to your BMW 328i, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With proactive maintenance, your 328i has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine 328i maintenance. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1999 BMW 328i!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, BMW themselves. 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 tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your 328i's life, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1999 BMW 328i problems in the future.

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

Bring your 1999 BMW 328i to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your 328i. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Could your 1999 BMW 328i be ready for a new battery? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your 328i may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your BMW 328i 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. Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty 328i) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your BMW 328i could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1999 BMW 328i engine. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1999 328i. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. 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 1999 BMW 328i.

Routine upkeep for your BMW 328i suspension and steering system can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide BMW 328i steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your BMW 328i's steering system with 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. We can help you with all those issues. Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your BMW 328i’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. Is your BMW 328i radiator in need of replacement? We got it. A/C smelling musty? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 1999 BMW 328i maintenance.
