Tip & How-To about BMW 3 Series

Message for BMW Owners

BMW's are not only a prestigious vehicles but they are very dependable vehicles when you understand their maintenance schedules. BMW literally pioneered "maintenance regiments". Not just a dealer check up but they were one of the first to use On Board Computers (OBC) with an integrated service scheduled. It was and continues to be a "no brainer". BMW was one of the first (if not the first) to offer "LIMP" mode. Most cars/trucks will break down and leave you stranded & usually at the most un-opportune time. Whereas a BMW will go into "Limp" mode and let you drive in a restrictive mode so you can get home or to a repair facility. Enough of BMW history.

Depending on the mileage it could need a few things. Your basic tune up will include replacing the distributor cap & rotor, ignition wires, spark plugs (6), and the fuel filter.

i need to know what sevices to perform at 100,000 miles, the Service engine soon light is on and i dont know why.


A lot depends on your vehicle history, what kind of vehicle you have and what engine and transmission your vehicle is equipped with. If this information is not provided, it is hard to say what your vehicle needs at 100,000 miles.

Your engine computer has turned the Service Engine Soon light on because there is a malfunction in one of the many systems that are monitored by the computer. The only way to find out which one, or WHY the light is on, is to scan your engine computer to find out why it has turned the light on. There will be a fault code stored in your computer. This light coming on has very little to do with maintenance schedules. It has more to do with SYSTEM MALFUNCTIONS. (Although many system malfunctions CAN be prevented by performing the scheduled maintenance.)
