Following simple preventative maintenance guidelines can help keep your BMW engine in top shape and extend the vehicle's life. Talk with your mechanic about a proper BMW maintenance schedule.
Maintain Versus Repair
The engine in your BMW is one of the most advanced in the world. There are more computer-based systems and warnings in your current vehicle than in the past. You might think that because every system is so closely monitored by your vehicle’s computer, you’ll have plenty of warning from the vehicle before something catastrophic happens to your engine. While this may be more true than it has been in the past, the truth is that preventative maintenance will help head off problems before they get out of hand. With a regular maintenance schedule, you and your mechanic can monitor the health of your vehicle and keep it running like new.
Tips for BMW Maintenance
You should use the following tips to keep your BMW engine running:
- Change the oil. Fresh, clean oil of the correct type and viscosity will lubricate your engine and keep it running smoothly.
- Check the fluid levels. You should regularly, as often as once per month, check your vehicle's oil, transmission fluid, brake fluid, and radiator coolant levels. Confirm with your mechanic what levels each of the fluids should be at for your vehicle to run best.
- Replace your air filters. Because your engine requires oxygen to run, changing the air filters will keep the air flowing through the engine and allow it to breathe as it must.
Keeping up with a maintenance schedule for your BMW will help extend the life of your engine and help you avoid costly and time-consuming repairs.
