Your Guide to 1987 BMW 528e Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your BMW 528e, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With the right maintenance at the right time, your 528e 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 528e, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1987 BMW 528e!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by BMW, your vehicle manufacturer. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your 528e's life, keep you safer on the road, and prevent common 1987 BMW 528e problems.

Overview of Essential BMW 528e Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1987 BMW 528e 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. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your 528e’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1987 BMW 528e. 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. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your BMW 528e battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your 528e stranded. Your BMW 528e could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1987 BMW 528e 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 1987 528e. 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 can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1987 BMW 528e.

Periodic service to the steering system in your BMW 528e can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, perform BMW 528e 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 528e's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine BMW 528e maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally.

At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your BMW 528e engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my BMW 528e? You know your BMW 528e better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving.
