2017 Volkswagen Golf R Tune-Up & Engine Service

Enhance Volkswagen Golf R Performance with a Tune-Up

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 drive a 2017 Volkswagen Golf R. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your Golf R’s engine. 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 Golf R’s engine running smoother, longer.

Volkswagen Golf R Engine Tune-Up Services

Your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care location has several options to choose from when it comes to Volkswagen Golf R engine tune-up services. 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*. A second service option replaces the air and fuel filter in your Golf R. 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 Golf R’s fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. The result? Restored fuel system performance. Keep in mind that your Golf R'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. Ask one of our technicians what your vehicle needs, based on your driving habits and your car’s current condition.

2017 Volkswagen Golf R Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • When should Volkswagen Golf R spark plugs be replaced? 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 Golf R? 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 Golf R engine than others? 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.
