2016 Volkswagen Golf R Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Tune Into Your Volkswagen Golf R

Is it tune-up time? If you tend to ignore your car until something goes wrong, it might be time to change your ways, particularly if you want to keep your 2016 Volkswagen Golf R in tip-top shape. Regular engine tune-ups can optimize your Golf R’s power on the road. They're designed to help your engine start easier and run more efficiently, which can mean better fuel economy (a win for you) and lower emissions (a win for the environment). When you get routine engine tune-ups based on Volkswagen's recommendations, you invest in your Golf R's long-term health and engine performance.

Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your Volkswagen Golf R

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 2016 Volkswagen Golf R. The first is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. It includes a complete visual inspection of engine components, installation of new spark plugs, and a lifetime warranty on parts*. The second service focuses on your Golf R's filters, specifically replacing the air filter and fuel filter. Yet another service is a fuel system cleaning process, which involves removing varnish, dirt, and carbon deposits that have built up inside the fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate in your Golf R. The result? Restored fuel system performance. Consider this when choosing a tune-up service for your Golf R: your vehicle’s maintenance record and mileage can determine which service is best. 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.

Questions About 2016 Volkswagen Golf R Engine Tune-Ups

  • Will it hurt my Volkswagen Golf R 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 Volkswagen’s recommendations.
  • What should I do if I see leaks under my Golf R? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Volkswagen Golf R. 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.
  • Are hard starts and stops bad for my Volkswagen Golf R 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.
