Frequently Asked Questions About BMW Service

Your BMW car or SAV is a fine-tuned machine that requires maintenance and repairs by expert BMW technicians. To keep your BMW vehicle running smoothly for many driving miles, you'll want to have it routinely taken care of and will want to understand more about the BMW car care and service. To help, here are a few answers to some of the most frequently asked BMW service questions.

How Often Should I Check My Vehicle's Fluid Levels?

You should check each of your vehicle's fluid levels at least once a month. This will ensure that they are full, not leaking, and clean.

How Often Should I Get an Oil Change?

It's recommended that most newer vehicles have their oil changed between every 5,000 and 7,500 miles. To know your BMW car or SAVs specific timeline, look in the owner's manual.

Why Does My Vehicle Need a Coolant Flush?

Used to help maintain the correct temperature, the coolant in your engine will break down over time. To ensure the proper temperature, the coolant will need to be flushed and replaced.

How Often Should I Change My Air Filter?

Your engine air filter will need to be changed between every 12,000 to 15,000 miles, while your cabin air filter requires a change about every 30,000 miles.

When Should I Replace My Brake Pads?

As you drive, your brake pads wear over time. When you start to hear a loud squealing sound, this is a sign that your brake pads need to be replaced. The length of time your brake pads last depends on how often you use them, how you drive, and what type of stop-and-go traffic you drive in often.

How Often Should I Have My Brakes Checked?

Your brakes should be checked at every tire rotation or when you notice any of the red flags. These red flags include shuddering, squealing, or a spongy brake pedal when you apply the brakes.

When Should I Replace My Car Battery?

Have you noticed that your car struggles to start? This could be a sign that it's time to have your car battery replaced.

When Should I Get a Tire Rotation?

Your tires should be rotated about every 3,000 to 5,000 miles, or at least once every six months.

What's the Point of a Tire Rotation?

Tires don't wear evenly and, depending on how you drive, one can wear way more than the others. To keep even wear and save you from purchasing new tires more often, it's recommended to have them rotated at every oil change.

Do I Really Need Winter Tires?

Here in the Dallas-DFW area, there isn't really a need for winter tires. Winter tires are designed to handle snow, ice, and freezing temperatures, which Dallas doesn't normally see.

How Much Air Pressure Should I Put into My Tires?

Most tires have a manufacturers' optimum (recommended) tire pressure between 30 and 35 PSI. To know your BMW car or SAVs recommended tire pressure, check in the owner's manual or on the door jamb's sticker.

What Happens If I Ignore My Low Tire Pressure Warning Light?

If your low tire pressure warning comes on, it may be because one of your tires is flat or losing air. It's best to pull over and inspect each tire before continuing.

What Should I Do When My Check Engine Lights Come On?

Has your check engine light appeared? It may be something simple or could be a sign of something larger. Schedule an appointment with a service center to have it checked out to be safe. If the check engine light is blinking, pull over immediately and call our service team.
