- Checking the brakes for wear and leaks and replacing brake pads, if possible, before they start scoring the rotors
- Checking the fluids, including brake fluid, oil, transmission fluid, power steering fluid, and coolant and topping them off when necessary

- Changing the oil and filter and checking for oil leaks
- Lubing the door latches and hinges, sunroof tracks, and power antenna.
- Checking the steering and suspension

BMW Repair in Rowlett, TX
As with any other vehicle, your BMW has wear and tear items, such as belts and hoses, brake pads and rotors, tires, water pumps, alternators, batteries, and more.
When it’s time to repair your BMW in Rowlett, TX, our ASE Certified auto technicians use OEM parts and will take care of your vehicle as if it were their own.
Other common BMW repairs include:
- Timing belts or timing chains
- Fuel filter replacement
- Water pump replacement
- Alternator replacement
- Replacement of suspension and steering components
- Air conditioning and heating repair
Some of these items (such as a timing belt) should be changed as recommended by the manufacturer. Since we can’t see items inside the engine, there is no way to tell you if that repair is upcoming other than to go by mileage or time driven.
For visible items, we’ll check them when you bring your vehicle in for maintenance and let you know if some needed repair is on the horizon.
BMW Diagnostics in Rowlett, TX
BMWs use control modules and computers to get the most out of the engine and transmission.
The computers rely on sensors to tell them what is happening to adjust the fuel and air mixture as needed. Other sensors let you know what is happening, such as the coolant temp sensor.
Because you can’t look at these electronic components and tell if they are bad or not, they send a code to the computer. In turn, the computer lights up the check engine light or other malfunction indicator lamp on the dashboard. This is to alert you when something isn’t working properly.
An ASE Certified mechanic in Rowlett, TX, uses diagnostic equipment to retrieve the codes and determine what is wrong based on the code and other diagnostic information. The tech can then make the appropriate repair.
Just because the computer sends an oxygen sensor code doesn’t mean the oxygen sensor is bad. It could also mean that the sensor is receiving readings indicating another problem, such as another faulty sensor, leaky injector, or a vacuum leak.
Our BMW diagnostic equipment in Rowlett, TX, tells us more than just diagnostic codes. It lets us know when a diagnostic code could be a sensor or something causing the sensor to send a bad reading.
