Is it tune-up time? If you tend to ignore your car until something goes wrong, it could be time for a new way of doing things, particularly if you want to keep your 2003 Volkswagen Beetle in tip-top shape. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your Beetle’s engine. 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 follow the guidelines specified by Volkswagen for your vehicle’s tune-up schedule, you can rest assured you’re investing in your Beetle’s long-term engine performance.
The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several Volkswagen Beetle engine tune-up services. The standard Firestone Tune-Up is one service option. 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 Beetle. 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 Beetle's fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. The result? Restored fuel system performance. Here’s something to remember when choosing services: the mileage and service history of your Beetle can determine what kind of service it needs. This means that a tune-up service that’s a great fit for another car may not be optimal for yours. Chat with a Firestone technician before you jump into a specific service to ensure your engine tune-up money is well-spent.
Schedule your next 2003 Beetle 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: stalling or shaky idling when you’re stopped, diminished fuel economy, an illuminated check engine light on your dashboard, or a knocking sound when the engine is running.
