Tune-Ups to Help Your BMW 528e Run Better

Is your engine overdue for a tune-up? If you tend to ignore your car until something goes wrong, it could be time for a new way of doing things, particularly if you want to keep your 1983 BMW 528e in tip-top shape. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your 528e’s engine. They're designed to help your engine start easier and run more efficiently, which can lead to lower emission levels and better fuel economy. When you follow the guidelines specified by BMW for your vehicle’s tune-up schedule, you can rest assured you’re investing in your 528e’s long-term engine performance.

BMW 528e Engine Tune-Up Services

Your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care location has several options to choose from when it comes to BMW 528e engine tune-up services. One option is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. This includes the installation of new spark plugs and a visual inspection of your engine’s components, plus a lifetime warranty on parts*. The second service focuses on your 528e's filters, specifically replacing the air filter and fuel filter. 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 528e's fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. This can improve your fuel system’s performance (and therefore, your engine’s performance). Consider this when choosing a tune-up service for your 528e: your vehicle’s maintenance record and mileage can determine which service is best. If you’re not sure what services are the best fit for your car, let us help! Ask one of our technicians what your vehicle needs, based on your driving habits and your car’s current condition.

1983 BMW 528e Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • What happens if my BMW 528e spark plugs fail? 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 528e mean? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your BMW 528e. 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.
  • Are some driving habits better for my BMW 528e engine than others? 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.
