2013 Audi A3 Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Enhance Audi A3 Performance with a Tune-Up

Is your engine overdue for a tune-up? If you usually wait until your car has an issue to take it in for service, it might be time to change your ways, especially if you want your 2013 Audi A3’s engine to last for a long time. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your A3. Tune-ups give your engine a boost in efficiency, so you can enjoy improved fuel economy and lower emissions. When you follow the guidelines specified by Audi for your vehicle’s tune-up schedule, you invest in your A3's long-term health and engine performance.

Audi A3 Engine Tune-Up Services

The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several Audi A3 engine tune-up services. One option is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. The standard Firestone Tune-Up includes new spark plugs (and installation!), a thorough inspection of engine components, and a lifetime parts warranty*. Another service option pays special attention to the filters in your A3. Specifically, we replace the fuel filter and air filter. Our third service is a thorough cleaning of the fuel system. During this type of tune-up, we use a three-step process to get rid of harmful varnish, dirt, and carbon deposit buildup in your A3’s fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. The result? Restored fuel system performance. Keep in mind that your A3's mileage and maintenance history can uniquely impact its tune-up needs. A one-size-fits-all engine tune-up procedure doesn’t necessarily exist. Chat with a Firestone technician before you jump into a specific service to ensure your engine tune-up money is well-spent.

Where Should I Go for My Audi A3 Tune-Up?

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for your next 2013 A3 engine tune-up. Consult your vehicle’s recommended service schedule from Audi, or make a service appointment if you notice any of these symptoms from your engine: decreased gas mileage, "rough" idling or stalling when stopped, engine knocking, or an illuminated check engine light.

Questions About 2013 Audi A3 Engine Tune-Ups

  • Will it hurt my Audi A3 to drive with old spark plugs? Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so. Without the spark of electricity created by spark plugs, your engine doesn’t have the combustion it needs to start — which could leave you stranded on the road. Always replace your spark plugs on time based on Audi’s recommendations.
  • What do I do if I see a pool of liquid under my Audi A3? Puddles could indicate an oil leak, coolant leak, or brake fluid leak– all of which can critically hurt your engine. Have your engine inspected as soon as you spot a pool of liquid in your usual parking spot.
  • What do hard starts and stops do to my A3 engine? Hard stops and starts can lead to premature wear on your engine’s components. Lighten up that lead foot and opt for steady, fluid starts and stops instead. Your engine (and your passengers!) will thank you.
