BMW Maintenance in the Tulsa Area

Perhaps your new or new-to-you BMW vehicle may come loaded with first-rate amenities, all vehicles are still in need of regular care to keep them in their optimal condition. Of course the best kind of maintenance is the regularly scheduled kind. Contrarily when minor issues go unnoticed, they can grow over time. Knowing what to do for your car requires an expert. Here are the most frequently asked questions we get about Tulsa BMW maintenance.




  • BMW Certified Maintenance

  • Why should I choose a BMW licensed service provider for my car maintenance?

    When you select BMW of Tulsa as your licensed service provider, you get a team of factory-trained Tulsa 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 – Tulsa

  • How long between oil changes?

    While many auto technicians swear by the 3,000-7,000 mile or 3 month oil-change rule, this may not be true for you. Our first suggestion is always to check your auto user manual. This can provide you with the most precise info available, especially for relatively new models. On the other hand, however, the manual provides little guidance when it comes to your vehicle’s history, age, and general wear. This more complete diagnosis requires an expert’s know-how. If your personal mechanic seems unsure, then phone your BMW dealer for the best advice.

  • BMW Brake Change

  • When should I get my brakes checked?

    Each auto care appointment should include a standard inspection. A licensed BMW mechanic will check your car for any required services. As brake quality is judged by size, look, and feel, this is the best way to check your brakes. Be sure to have squeaky brakes looked at by a professional, as the noise may be a symptom of a larger issue.

  • BMW Tire Rotation

  • What’s the best time to get the tires rotated?

    Your car’s chief point of contact with the pavement are the wheels. Because of this constant pressure, periodic rotation of the tires is required to best distribute this wear and tear. A tire rotation every 6,000 to 8,000 miles is highly advised. Rotation ensures that your tires will wear evenly. Note, also, that 4WD and off-roading, as well as personal driving habits may dramatically influence your tire rotation interval and frequency, outside of a regular BMW tire rotation schedule.

  • BMW Battery Replacement – Tulsa

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

    The normal car battery lasts between 3 to 5 years, depending on care and use. The best way to avoid a battery problem is monitor your vehicle’s battery health. This most often takes place during a routine maintenance inspection. Most car batteries, like other perishable items, have an expiration date clearly marked.

  • BMW Brake Pad Replacement

  • How long will brake pads last?

    The life of a brake pad depends upon your typical driving habits and decidedly, the operating environment. Based on moderate to heavy usage, brake pads are typically designed to last through 20,000-25,000 miles. Factors that significantly reduce its life are braking frequently, high-speed braking, 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 under normal driving conditions.

  • The Check Engine Light

  • How come my check engine light is on?

    Computerized dashboards are standard traitsin most modern cars and trucks. These include sensors and indicators to assist drivers in managing vehicle safety. Common reasons that your check engine light has come 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 should I replace my car’s fuel filter?

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

  • BMW Engine & Ignition System

  • Why won’t my BMW start?

    Although there may be numerous reasons why your BMW won’t start, one likely possibility is its battery. If your lights were left on, then its reasonable to assume that the charge is drained. One early warning sign of a low charge is if it takes longer to start the engine when you turn the key. There may be other reasons why your vehicle won’t start, so it’s always best to consult a certified BMW mechanic.
