Schedule of routine maintenance

Offered recommendations assume independent performance of procedures of service of the car it the owner unlike the works which are carried out at car repair shop of dealer office of the BMW company. Though this schedule is made on the basis of manufacturer recommendations, intervals between the majority of procedures, at the discretion of the owner of the car, it is possible to reduce, for example, check and replacement of greasings and liquids should be made with the intervals providing the maximum service life of the engine or a drive. Besides, if the owner of the car is interested in supporting it in a condition of the maximum readiness for operation on a case of the possible resale, many procedures can be carried out more often. We only welcome a similar initiative.

Initial service and check of the new car should be made at car repair shop of dealer office of firm for the purpose of performance of conditions of the guarantee certificate. In most cases such check is made free of charge (for further information address in dealer office of firm).

Intervals of service of the BMW car of the 5th series depend on conditions of its operation. Intervals of service are displayed on the dashboard. The index of intervals of service has five green, one yellow and one red light-emitting diodes (LED). Inscriptions of "Oilservice", “Inspektion”, and also a symbol of hours (means need of replacement of brake liquid) in addition can light up. The less the green light-emitting diode after ignition inclusion burns, the less time remains before the next service. If the yellow light-emitting diode lights up together with one of two inscriptions, it is necessary to carry out the next maintenance. The following types of preventive works are provided: “Inspection I” (TO-1) and “Inspection II” (TO-2). TO-2 — this every second TO-1. At violation of periodicity of service the red light-emitting diode lights up.

Display of the indicator of the forthcoming maintenance

Calculation of intervals of service is made by the microprocessor depending on the passable distance and service conditions, and also from style of driving. The amount of works, included in THAT, is specified in the service book.

On HUNDRED after the work, carried out together with oil or performance replacement THAT, indication of need of carrying out service is dumped. The special device which HUNDRED BMW firms are on sale is necessary for a sbrasyvaniye of indication. However HUNDRED, authorized by BMW firm, are obliged to dump free of charge indication of an interval of service even if service was carried out independently.

For ensuring optimum operation of the engine it is recommended to consider at the same time at carrying out the analysis of composition of the fulfilled gases contents of memory of malfunctions. In a control system of the engine there can be imperceptible malfunctions which are compensated, but violate conditions of optimum operation of the engine (the increased fuel consumption). Malfunction can be revealed when reading contents of memory of malfunctions.

The works which are carried out on system of service of BMW together with replacement of oil, are marked as “Oilservice”.

The works which are carried out within maintenance THOSE, it is necessary to carry out at fire of an inscription of "Inspektion" in a combination to a yellow light-emitting diode. If not to follow the index of intervals of service, service it is necessary to carry out each 20 000 km, or once in 2 years. Every second maintenance (TO-2) includes additional works.
