1987 Volkswagen Golf Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Tune-Ups to Help Your Volkswagen Golf Run Better

Is it time for an engine tune-up? If you usually wait until your car has an issue to take it in for service, it could be time for a new way of doing things, especially if you want your 1987 Volkswagen Golf’s engine to last for a long time. Regular engine tune-ups can optimize your Golf’s power on the road. Tune-ups give your engine a boost in efficiency, which can lead to lower emission levels and better fuel economy. When you get routine engine tune-ups based on Volkswagen's recommendations, you’re taking vital steps toward keeping your Golf’s engine running smoother, longer.

Engine Tune-Up for Volkswagen Golf

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 1987 Volkswagen Golf. One option is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. This includes the installation of new spark plugs and a visual inspection of your engine’s components, plus a lifetime warranty on parts*. The second service focuses on your Golf's filters, specifically replacing the air filter and fuel filter. 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 Golf's fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. This goes a long way in boosting your fuel system’s overall performance. Keep in mind that your Golf's mileage and maintenance history can uniquely impact its tune-up needs. This means that a tune-up service that’s a great fit for another car may not be optimal for yours. Ask one of our technicians what your vehicle needs, based on your driving habits and your car’s current condition.

1987 Volkswagen Golf Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • When should Volkswagen Golf spark plugs be replaced? 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 do I do if I see a pool of liquid under my Volkswagen Golf? Puddles could indicate that your vehicle is leaking coolant, oil, or brake fluid. Ignoring these leaks can lead to permanent engine damage, so address these symptoms ASAP with a tune-up service.
  • Are some driving habits better for my Volkswagen Golf engine than others? 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.
