It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine 528i maintenance. Just follow your 1998 BMW 528i maintenance schedule!

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. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your BMW 528i

Bring your 1998 BMW 528i to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and an expert technician will begin by performing 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 528i’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1998 BMW 528i? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your 528i may need a replacement battery sooner. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your BMW 528i battery. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. 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 528i won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can help your 1998 BMW 528i's engine run smoother. To learn how often BMW recommends you have the oil changed in your 1998 528i, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1998 BMW 528i.

Routine upkeep for your BMW 528i suspension and steering system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!).

Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, provide BMW 528i steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your BMW 528i's steering and suspension system.

Without routine BMW 528i maintenance, you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire BMW 528i cooling, heating, and climate control system. Need a new BMW 528i radiator? We’ve got your back. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 1998 BMW 528i maintenance.
