What types of service does my BMW need?

by Snohomish European on December 31, 1969

 While some of the service work that your BMW needs is very well known, oil changes, air filters, brake pads, and the like, there are other services that need to be considered to keep your car running in top performance condition.

Keeping your cooling system well maintained means the engine is running at optimum temperature. If the coolant is over two years old, it might be getting close to needing to be changed. Not only will it help keep operating temperature correct, but it will also help protect the cooling system from corrosion, and keep the water pump lubricated.

It is also important to use the right anti-freeze. BMW runs at higher temps than other cars and needs special BMW coolant that will not break down under extreme conditions. It is also important to service the cooling system if you own other high performance brands such as Mercedes, Mini Cooper, Land Rover, Jaguar, and Audi.

At Snohomish European, we offer complete cooling system flush and recharging at competitive prices. See our special offers page for applicable offers. Call for an appointment to make sure you’re ready for the summer driving season.
