Tune-Ups to Help Your BMW 528e Run Better

Is it time for an engine tune-up? If you tend to ignore your car until something goes wrong, it might be time to change your ways, especially if you want your 1984 BMW 528e’s engine to last for a long time. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your 528e. Tune-ups help your engine start smoothly and run efficiently, so you can enjoy improved fuel economy and lower emissions. When you get routine engine tune-ups based on BMW's recommendations, you can rest assured you’re investing in your 528e’s long-term engine performance.

Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your BMW 528e

The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several BMW 528e engine tune-up services. One option 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 528e. Our third service is a thorough cleaning of the fuel system. During this type of tune-up, we use a three-step process to get rid of harmful varnish, dirt, and carbon deposit buildup in your 528e’s fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. This can improve your fuel system’s performance (and therefore, your engine’s performance). Here’s something to remember when choosing services: the mileage and service history of your 528e can determine what kind of service it needs. This means that a tune-up service that’s a great fit for another car may not be optimal for yours. Ask one of our technicians what your vehicle needs, based on your driving habits and your car’s current condition.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 1984 BMW 528es

  • Will it hurt my BMW 528e to drive with old spark plugs? Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so. Without the spark of electricity created by spark plugs, your engine doesn’t have the combustion it needs to start — which could leave you stranded on the road. Always replace your spark plugs on time based on BMW’s recommendations.
  • What should I do if I see leaks under my 528e? 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 hard starts and stops bad for my BMW 528e engine? You can make your driving habits more engine-friendly. Hard starts and stops can increase the stress on engine parts, especially over many years. Boost your fuel economy and care for your engine by using gradual, smooth starts and stops instead.
