What is the recommended maintenance schedule for the 2004 BMW 330xi?
Take care of your BMW 330xi and it'll take care of you. With the right maintenance at the right time, your 330xi 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 330xi maintenance. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2004 BMW 330xi!
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; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your 330xi running for longer, keep you safer on the road, and prevent common 2004 BMW 330xi problems.
Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2004 BMW 330xi for factory-recommended routine maintenance and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your 330xi. 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.
Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2004 BMW 330xi? If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and five years). Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your BMW 330xi battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! 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 330xi could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.
In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can help your 2004 BMW 330xi's engine run smoother. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2004 330xi. 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. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2004 BMW 330xi.
Routine upkeep for your BMW 330xi suspension and steering system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!).

Components within your BMW 330xi's steering system require regular maintenance.
