What Is My Car Maintenance Schedule?


Most Riverside drivers like to keep their vehicles running in top shape, whether they’re driving a brand new car or something a little older. And that means holding to a good car maintenance schedule. But you may be wondering, “What is my car maintenance schedule? How often should I get an oil change? When should I rotate my tires? What about spark plugs, filters, belts, or fluids?” Get all the answers you’re looking for below.

Recommended Car Maintenance Schedule

Wondering what the car maintenance schedule for your BMW is? No two vehicles are exactly alike, so you should always reference your car’s manual for details. (You will not need to replace everything that you check!) However, the guide below can help you get a good idea of what to expect as you rack up the mileage on your vehicle:

Every 3 Months or 3,000 Miles

  • Change the oil and oil filter
  • Lube the chassis (older vehicles, see your car’s manual)
  • Check and top off the fluids (coolant, steering, transmission, brake, etc)
  • Check the wiper blades (Replace if needed.)
  • Check the air filter (Replace if needed.)
  • Check the headlamps and signal lights (Replace if needed.)
  • Check the tire treads and air pressure (Inflate if needed. Replace once tread is worn.)

Every 6,000 – 8,000 Miles

  • Rotate all four tires

Every 20,000+ Miles

  • Change the spark plugs (“Long life” spark plugs can last much longer.)

Every 30,000 – 50,000 Miles

  • Change the belts

Every 2 Years

  • Replace the fuel filter (can go longer on newer vehicles)

Every 4 Years

  • Change the hoses
