BMW Tune Ups and Oil Filter Services for 1 Series, 3 Series, 5 Series, 6 Series & 7 Series
The frequency in which you change your oil filters and get basic adjustments depends on your driving habits and the condition of your BMW. Either way, making professional maintenance a dedicated routine is the best way to ensure the longevity of your vehicle and its many components. Without proper maintenance, your filter could clog and eventually be the cause of engine failure, or other serious problems may go undiagnosed. At European Motor Cars, we perform general inspections to make sure your BMW isn’t suffering from any of the more common problems that can plague your model.
Passing emissions is necessary to drive legally, and for good reason; emissions tests reveal how much pollution your vehicle is releasing into the air while it’s being driven. Passing your yearly emissions test means sometimes having to make a variety of repairs such as fixing vacuum leaks, repairing air injection malfunctions, and tending to faulty oxygen sensors. European Motor Cars professionals can perform in-depth troubleshooting and figure out just what kinds of problems your BMW may face when it comes to emissions, and we work diligently to find dependable solutions.
BMW Electrical System Diagnostics and Repair for all Models Including X1, X3, X5 & X6
Along with battery complications, problems with your lights, radio, horn, motorized windows, and power socket are just a few warnings that something is amiss within the electrical system of your BMW. Electrical issues are also often the reason for starter and alternator failure. To prevent being stranded on the road thanks to electrical issues, the European Motor Cars team utilizes quality diagnostic methods and comprehensive troubleshooting to ensure that the right amount of current is being drawn from your battery and that your fuses are in good shape.
Heating and A/C Repair for BMW M series, M5 & M6
You should be able to depend on your BMW to be a comfortable oasis during seasonal extremes. Your vehicle has its own HVAC system that is comprised of fans, heater cores and valves, blower motors, blower resistors, airflow controls, and more. It takes a professional to pinpoint the cause of your complications because the culprit could be a jammed component, a fluid leak causing damage to a motor, or even a poor electrical connection within your vehicle. Whether your air conditioner is blowing hot air, your BMW’s fans work erratically, or your airflow is weak or simply non-existent, professional repairs from European Motor Cars can restore efficient climate control in your vehicle and help you drive comfortably once again.
Shocks and Struts
The shocks and struts enable the absorption of energy from the working springs underneath your BMW, and are part of your suspension system. These parts of your vehicle can take a lot of abuse, and maintenance intervals are largely dependent on your driving habits. Especially for front-end components of BMWs, there can be a number of bushings and joints within the suspension that could fail or cause problems. Repairs need to be performed by a reputable company that has access to high quality equipment for both diagnostic reasons and replacement services.
Without a properly working engine, your BMW isn’t going anywhere. It doesn’t help that engines can malfunction in several different ways, and the cause of your problem could be one of many potential issues. A few of these issues include worn out spark plugs or bearings, air intake or fuel system problems, lack of compression, valve or coil failure, and more. At European Motor Cars, we take the time to find the exact diagnosis of your engine complications and offer you repairs that you can trust. If your engine has overheated and the problem lies in the radiator, our professionals provide the removal and replacement services necessary to get your vehicle back in top condition. If your engine is worn and at the end of its life, we provide engine rebuilding service to remove and strip down your engine, have it cleaned, inspected, and rebuilt with quality parts. Engine failure is not only inconvenient and expensive, it can be incredibly dangerous to experience while driving at high speeds on the highway. For this reason, engine issues should be taken seriously and brought into European Motor Cars as soon as your BMW starts exhibiting problems.
The brakes of a BMW are different from that of other vehicles, and must be serviced accordingly. Foreign vehicles often have brakes that are more thin and sensitive to heat, so brake failure means that replacement is the only option. Whether the problem lies within the brake’s rotors, pads, or drums, our specialists can find the solution to whatever problems you encounter and can rid you of the squealing and grinding that accompanies failing brakes. At European Motor Cars, we also provide brake and lamp inspections to ensure that your brakes are in good shape and the lights on your BMW are fully responsive, as these two components are critical for keeping you safe on the road.
Mufflers and Exhaust
The exhaust system of your vehicle involves several components: a catalytic converter to convert harmful compounds into more safe chemicals, metal pipes to transport the exhaust, a muffler to manage the noise level, and the location where the exhaust exits into the air, known as the tail pipe. Any of these parts of your exhaust system could experience wear or damage, and need to be repaired in order for your BMW to run safely and smoothly. Rattling from your tail pipe could mean that you have a disconnected hose or loose valve, that you need replacement parts, or that your catalytic converter has suffered damage and the ceramic section has broken free inside of its housing. It’s important to have your BMW serviced for any muffler or exhaust issues you encounter to make sure any present situation doesn’t worsen.
Suspension and Steering
Your suspension system helps keep your ride smooth and even, and problems within this area often translate to a bumpy or shaky ride, or having one end of your vehicle tilting further towards the ground than normal. Suspension issues for BMWs can be caused by anything from the washers or a loose ball bearing to damage of the vehicle’s control arm. In instances such as control arm problems, steering is also affected and can become shaky at high speeds. If your power steering has seized up or you are encountering other problems, the reason is often found to be a belt or pumping issue. Our team at European Motor Cars can recognize if symptoms are connected to one another and can resolve any issues accordingly.
Fuel System Repair
The fuel system in your BMW involves pumps, valves and sensors that work together to make your car run. Issues within this system can create a number of problems, and if your BMW seems to have a hard time starting up or running, having your fuel system diagnosed is a good idea. Fuel pump failure causes engine problems because the engine runs on fuel, and if it’s not getting the fuel it needs or it is not delivered in the right way, your engine can become very erratic or altogether cease to work. Your fuel system relies on a particular balance to create combustion, and when too much or too littler fuel will cause problems. Our professionals can supply you with the repairs and replacements you need to get your fuel pump or fuel injector back on the right track, so when you start your car or press on your accelerator, your engine will perform optimally.
Timing Belt and Water Pump Replacement
A broken timing belt can create a world of problems for the engine of your BMW. Maintenance of this belt is important, as it controls your engine’s camshaft and is in delicate balance with other components within your vehicle. Unfortunately, all timing belts begin to wear down after a certain amount of mileage, so having a professional diagnose timing belt issues before it fails is ideal. Likewise, the water pump that keeps your engine from overheating is another component that will eventually need replacement. The symptoms of water pump failure are often easily overlooked or non-existent, so regular maintenance on your BMW is the best way to prevent being caught unaware.
Your transmission is what enables you to control all of the power within your BMW. At European Motor Cars, we perform all necessary transmission services dealing with your differentials (which help your tires to spin at different speeds while you are turning), as well as issues with your clutch such as leaky cylinders, worn seals, blockages, broken or stretched cables, and linkage problems. We also provide transmission and differential fluid services to make sure that all of the parts of these systems are working up to your standards and providing you with a smooth ride.
