Engine Tune-Up Service for Your 1996 BMW 328is

Enhance BMW 328is Performance with a Tune-Up

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 1996 BMW 328is’s engine to last for a long time. Regular engine tune-ups can optimize your 328is’s power on the road. Tune-ups help your engine start smoothly and run efficiently, which can mean better fuel economy (a win for you) and lower emissions (a win for the environment). When you follow the guidelines specified by BMW for your vehicle’s tune-up schedule, you’re taking vital steps toward keeping your 328is’s engine running smoother, longer.

Engine Tune-Up for BMW 328is

The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several BMW 328is engine tune-up services. The first is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. It includes a complete visual inspection of engine components, installation of new spark plugs, and a lifetime warranty on parts*. A second service option replaces the air and fuel filter in your 328is. The third tune-up option is a fuel system cleaning service, which is a three-step process that removes varnish, dirt, and carbon deposits on your 328is's fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. This goes a long way in boosting your fuel system’s overall performance. Keep in mind that your 328is's mileage and maintenance history can uniquely impact its tune-up needs. This means that a tune-up service that’s a great fit for another car may not be optimal for yours. Chat with a Firestone technician before you jump into a specific service to ensure your engine tune-up money is well-spent.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 1996 BMW 328iss

  • Will it hurt my BMW 328is to drive with old spark plugs? When it’s time to replace the spark plugs, don’t delay. These small (but vital!) parts provide the electric spark that your car needs in order to start, and old spark plugs can prevent your car from starting at all. Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so.
  • What does a puddle underneath my BMW 328is mean? Puddles could indicate an oil leak, coolant leak, or brake fluid leak– all of which can critically hurt your engine. Have your engine inspected as soon as you spot a pool of liquid in your usual parking spot.
  • Are hard starts and stops bad for my BMW 328is engine? Hard stops and starts can lead to premature wear on your engine’s components. Lighten up that lead foot and opt for steady, fluid starts and stops instead. Your engine (and your passengers!) will thank you.
