Engine Tune-Up Service for Your 2018 Volkswagen Atlas

Enhance Volkswagen Atlas Performance with a Tune-Up

Is it time for an engine 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 drive a 2018 Volkswagen Atlas. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your Atlas. Tune-ups help your engine start smoothly and run efficiently, which can mean better fuel economy (a win for you) and lower emissions (a win for the environment). When you take your car for regular engine tune-ups as recommended by Volkswagen, you’re taking vital steps toward keeping your Atlas’s engine running smoother, longer.

Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your Volkswagen Atlas

Your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care location has several options to choose from when it comes to Volkswagen Atlas engine tune-up services. One option is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. This includes the installation of new spark plugs and a visual inspection of your engine’s components, plus a lifetime warranty on parts*. A second service option replaces the air and fuel filter in your Atlas. The third tune-up option is a fuel system cleaning service, which is a three-step process that removes varnish, dirt, and carbon deposits on your Atlas's fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. This goes a long way in boosting your fuel system’s overall performance. Here’s something to remember when choosing services: the mileage and service history of your Atlas can determine what kind of service it needs. A one-size-fits-all engine tune-up procedure doesn’t necessarily exist. Talk to a technician about your driving style, mileage, and service history to learn more about your vehicle's specific needs.

Where to Get a Tune-Up for Your Volkswagen Atlas

Schedule your next 2018 Atlas engine tune-up service at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Consult your vehicle’s recommended service schedule from Volkswagen, 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.

*Ask a Firestone Complete Auto Care teammate about full terms and conditions for warranties.

2018 Volkswagen Atlas Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • What happens if my Volkswagen Atlas spark plugs fail? When it’s time to replace the spark plugs, don’t delay. These small (but vital!) parts provide the electric spark that your car needs in order to start, and old spark plugs can prevent your car from starting at all. Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so.
  • What should I do if I see leaks under my Atlas? Puddles could indicate that your vehicle is leaking coolant, oil, or brake fluid. Ignoring these leaks can lead to permanent engine damage, so address these symptoms ASAP with a tune-up service.
  • Are some driving habits better for my Volkswagen Atlas engine than others? Hard starts and stops put extra wear and tear on engine components. Smooth, gradual starts and stops, on the other hand, are a great way to help your engine run better. They can also help maximize your fuel economy.
