BMW Repair and Service
EurAuto - Independent BMW Shop In Plano, TX
Need repair, service, or maintenance for your BMW? You’ve come to the right place! We work on a lot of different car lines at EurAuto but BMW is by far what we work on the most. We can honestly say if you’re in Plano or the North Dallas area and you drive a BMW, you will not find a better place to take care of your car.

BMW Factory Recommended Maintenance
We do all levels of repairs on BMW at EurAuto, but maintenance is by far the most common thing you’ll find us doing. We perform factory recommended maintenance that meets and usually exceeds the requirements of BMW. We use premium LiquiMoly and Mobil-1 oils as well as original equipment or better filters to ensure that your warranty remains intact.
Speaking of your warranty, many people have been made to believe that their vehicle must be serviced at the dealership in order for the warranty to be valid. Nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, a federal law was passed that prevents manufacturers from denying warranty claims because maintenance was performed by independent repair facilities. This is called the Magnusson-Moss Warranty Act of 1975. When your maintenance work is done at EurAuto, your warranty stays in effect!
Beyond Factory Recommended Maintenance
In addition to the maintenance that’s spelled out in your vehicle’s owner’s manual, there are certain preventative maintenance items we recommend based on our years of experience and the failures we have seen on these cars. Remember – when the factory builds out a vehicle’s maintenance requirements, they haven’t actually seen what common issues are going to come up on the vehicle.
Some of the preventative items we may recommend include:
- Transmission service
- Carbon cleaning
- SCR and DPF cleaning on BMW diesels
- Swirl flap cleaning or deletion
- And more
Like all cars, BMWs need repairs periodically. Some of these repairs can be common problems that we see on nearly a daily basis while others can be incredibly unusual repairs that have even the most seasoned veteran technicians scratching their heads.
Air Conditioning and Heating Issues
BMWs have advanced climate control systems. The most common issue we see when your A/C just isn’t cooling that well is a refrigerant leak. There are times that we’ll see a failed sensor or something malfunctioning within the electrical system of the climate control, but these systems are pretty solid.
Cooling System Problems
The cooling system in a BMW is known as one of the weak points. This is generally due to the use of plastic components that fail over time due to heat cycling. BMW uses plastic thermostat housings, plastic drive belt pulleys, plastic expansion tanks, and even plastic water pump impellers. These are just a handful of the cooling system components that plague BMWs with problems.
When performing repairs on a BMW cooling system, we will often upgrade these plastic parts with aftermarket upgrades made of aluminum or steel. These upgraded parts are far superior to the stock components and will usually last the lifetime of the vehicle.
Oil Leak Repairs
If you own European cars, you’re no stranger to oil leaks. BMW is no exception to this rule. On any given day in or shop you’ll find us replacing valve cover gaskets, oil filter housing gaskets, camshaft position sensor o-rings, vanos solenoids, crankshaft seals, and more.
Malfunction Indicator Lamps (MILs)
BMWs are jam packed with electronics and advanced driver assistance systems. These various systems have warning lights that will illuminate when there is a problem. The most common of these lights is the check engine light, but it’s one of many. You may have also seen your tire pressure monitoring, antilock brakes, integral active steering, supplemental restraint system, or a host of other warnings that have come up on your dashboard.
The first step in diagnosing any of the MILs is to check the codes, but you have to have access to the proper equipment to get into most of these systems. At EurAuto, we use the iSCAN by Autoland Scientific. This tool gives us access to everything the factory BMW diagnostic tool does and more. Our technicians are proficient in all of the latest diagnostic techniques and are constantly training on the new systems.
When a warning light comes on in your BMW, EurAuto is the place to bring it.
