1987 Volkswagen Cabriolet Tune-Up & Engine Service

Tune Into Your Volkswagen Cabriolet

Is your engine overdue for a tune-up? If you're the type of driver who waits for something to go wrong with your vehicle, it could be time for a new way of doing things, especially if you want your 1987 Volkswagen Cabriolet’s engine to last for a long time. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your Cabriolet. They're designed to help your engine start easier and run more efficiently, 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’re taking vital steps toward keeping your Cabriolet’s engine running smoother, longer.

Volkswagen Cabriolet Engine Tune-Up Services

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 1987 Volkswagen Cabriolet. The standard Firestone Tune-Up is one service option. It includes a complete visual inspection of engine components, installation of new spark plugs, and a lifetime warranty on parts*. Another service option pays special attention to the filters in your Cabriolet. 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 Cabriolet’s fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. The result? Restored fuel system performance. Keep in mind that your Cabriolet'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. Talk to a technician about your driving style, mileage, and service history to learn more about your vehicle's specific needs.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 1987 Volkswagen Cabriolets

  • When should Volkswagen Cabriolet spark plugs be replaced? Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so. Spark plugs are small but mighty. The spark of electricity that the plug emits across a small gap creates the ignition for the combustion needed to start your car. Without that spark, your car won't start.
  • What should I do if I see leaks under my Cabriolet? 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.
  • Are some driving habits better for my Volkswagen Cabriolet engine than others? You can make your driving habits more engine-friendly. Hard starts and stops can increase the stress on engine parts, especially over many years. Boost your fuel economy and care for your engine by using gradual, smooth starts and stops instead.
