2008 BMW 528xi Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Enhance BMW 528xi Performance with a Tune-Up

Is it time for an engine tune-up? If you're the type of driver who waits for something to go wrong with your vehicle, it might be time to change your ways, particularly if you want to keep your 2008 BMW 528xi in tip-top shape. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your 528xi. Tune-ups give your engine a boost in efficiency, so you can enjoy improved fuel economy and lower emissions. When you follow the guidelines specified by BMW for your vehicle’s tune-up schedule, you invest in your 528xi's long-term health and engine performance.

Engine Tune-Up for BMW 528xi

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 2008 BMW 528xi. The first is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. The standard Firestone Tune-Up includes new spark plugs (and installation!), a thorough inspection of engine components, and a lifetime parts warranty*. Another service option pays special attention to the filters in your 528xi. Specifically, we replace the fuel filter and air filter. Yet another service is a fuel system cleaning process, which involves removing varnish, dirt, and carbon deposits that have built up inside the fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate in your 528xi. This goes a long way in boosting your fuel system’s overall performance. Keep in mind that your 528xi's mileage and maintenance history can uniquely impact its tune-up needs. A one-size-fits-all engine tune-up procedure doesn’t necessarily exist. Chat with a Firestone technician before you jump into a specific service to ensure your engine tune-up money is well-spent.

Questions About 2008 BMW 528xi Engine Tune-Ups

  • When should BMW 528xi spark plugs be replaced? 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 should I do if I see leaks under my 528xi? Puddles could indicate an oil leak, coolant leak, or brake fluid leak– all of which can critically hurt your engine. Have your engine inspected as soon as you spot a pool of liquid in your usual parking spot.
  • What do hard starts and stops do to my 528xi 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.
