2020 Volkswagen Atlas Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Enhance Volkswagen Atlas Performance with a Tune-Up

Is it tune-up time? 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 2020 Volkswagen Atlas’s engine to last for a long time. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your Atlas’s engine. Tune-ups give your engine a boost in efficiency, which can lead to lower emission levels and better fuel economy. When you follow the guidelines specified by Volkswagen for your vehicle’s tune-up schedule, you invest in your Atlas's long-term health and engine performance.

Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your Volkswagen Atlas

The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several Volkswagen Atlas 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*. A second service option replaces the air and fuel filter in your Atlas. 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 Atlas’s fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. This can improve your fuel system’s performance (and therefore, your engine’s 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 Volkswagen Atlas Tune-Up

Schedule your next 2020 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: shaking while the engine is idling, poor fuel economy, an illuminated check engine light on your dashboard, or a knocking sound when the engine is running.

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

Questions About 2020 Volkswagen Atlas Engine Tune-Ups

  • 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 do I do if I see a pool of liquid under my Volkswagen Atlas? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Volkswagen Atlas. It could signal a coolant leak, brake fluid leak, or an oil leak. Let any one of these leaks linger and it could cause engine damage.
  • What do hard starts and stops do to my Atlas engine? 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.
