What to Know About 2008 BMW 335i Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your BMW 335i, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With the right maintenance at the right time, your 335i 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. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your 335i, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2008 BMW 335i!

BMW knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. 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 fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your 335i perform better, increase your vehicle safety, and prevent common 2008 BMW 335i problems.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your BMW 335i

Bring your 2008 BMW 335i to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your 335i’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Could your 2008 BMW 335i be ready for a new battery? 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). 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. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your BMW 335i battery, and so can frequent short drives. 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 335i 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 support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2008 BMW 335i running newer, longer. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2008 335i. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2008 BMW 335i.

Maintaining your BMW 335i steering and suspension system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, perform BMW 335i 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 335i's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine BMW 335i maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). 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 335i engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Is your BMW 335i radiator in need of replacement? We can take care of that. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 2008 BMW 335i maintenance.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my BMW 335i? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • When does my BMW 335i need high mileage oil? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older BMW 335i engines.
  •  Why are my BMW dashboard lights on? It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible. An illuminated dashboard light means something in your vehicle isn't functioning like it should. Letting problems linger can mean bad news for your BMW 335i, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
