BMW Maintenance in the El Paso Area

Perhaps your new or new-to-you BMW vehicle may come loaded with advanced bells-and-whistles, all vehicles still need regular service to maintain them in their best condition. It may go without saying that the best kind of maintenance is the preventative kind. On the other hand when minor issues go unnoticed, they can grow over time. Knowing the right solution for your car requires an expert. Here are the most frequently asked questions we get about BMW maintenance in the El Paso area.




  • BMW Certified Maintenance

  • Why choose a BMW service provider for my car or truck maintenance?

    When you select BMW of El Paso as your licensed service provider, you receive a team of factory-trained El Paso BMW mechanics. Not only do they provide first-rate auto service, but ensure use of state-of-the-art equipment and genuine BMW parts, including a full warranty for all service and repairs complete.

  • BMW Oil Change – El Paso

  • How long between oil changes?

    While auto technicians swear by the 3,000-7,000 mile or 3 month oil-change rule, there are always exceptions to the rule. The first suggestion is to check your car’s user manual. This will give you the most accurate information, especially for relatively new models. Conversely, however, the manual provides little guidance when it comes to your vehicle’s history, age, and general wear. This more indepth diagnosis requires an expert’s know-how. If your mechanic is unsure, then contact your BMW dealer right away for the best advice.

  • BMW Brake Change

  • When do I need my brakes checked?

    Each auto maintenance appointment should include a standard inspection. A licensed BMW mechanic will inspect your vehicle for any other recommended services. As brake quality is judged by size, look, and feel, this is the best way to have your brakes checked. Always have squeaky brakes looked at, as it can be a symptom of a bigger issue.

  • BMW Tire Rotation

  • What is a tire rotation? And when should I get one?

    A vehicle’s chief point of contact with the pavement is the tires. This causes excessive wear and tear that must be distributed evenly between all the tires. A tire rotation after every 6,000 to 8,000 miles is advised. Rotation guarantees that your tires will wear evenly. Plus, be sure to note that 4WD and off-roading, as well as individual driving habits may dramatically influence your tire rotation interval and frequency, outside of a normal BMW tire rotation schedule.

  • BMW Battery Replacement – El Paso

  • What type of preventive maintenance is necessary for my auto battery?

    The typical car battery lasts between 3 to 5 years, depending on care and use. The best way to avoid a battery problem is monitor the battery health of your vehicle. This typically takes place during a routine service inspection. Most car batteries, like other perishable items, have a clearly marked date of expiration.

  • BMW Brake Pad Replacement

  • When do I change my brake pads?

    The working life of a brake pad relies on your daily driving routine and of course, the operating environment. Based upon moderate to heavy usage, brake pads are usually designed to last through twenty to twenty-five thousand miles. Factors that significantly reduce its life are braking frequently, braking at high-speed, elevated temperatures and driving on uneven areas or rocky terrain. On average, brake pads are designed to provide from forty to sixty thousand miles of pad life in normal driving conditions.

  • The Check Engine Light

  • What does it mean to ‘service engine soon’?

    Computerized dashboards are standard featuresin most modern cars and trucks. These include indicators and sensors to assist drivers in managing vehicle safety. Common reasons that your check engine light is on include low tire pressure, missing gas cap, or time for an oil change. This light also produces a computerized error code which is easily read by a diagnostic machine.

  • BMW Fuel Filter

  • When do I replace my fuel filter?

    A clean fuel filter is essential for optimal and trouble-free engine performance. Always consult your BMW mechanic or automakers’ manual, but fuel filters usually can operate between twenty to forty thousand miles.

  • BMW Engine & Ignition System

  • Why won’t my BMW start?

    Although there are numerous reasons why your BMW won’t start, the most obvious reason may be the battery. For example, if the lights were left on, then its reasonable to assume that the charge is out. One sign of a low charge is if it takes a moment to start when you turn the key. There may be other reasons why your car or truck won’t start, so it’s always best to consult a certified BMW mechanic.
