2013 Volkswagen Golf Tune-Up & Engine Service

Enhance Volkswagen Golf Performance with a Tune-Up

Is it tune-up time? 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, particularly if you want to keep your 2013 Volkswagen Golf in tip-top shape. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your Golf’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 invest in your Golf's long-term health and engine performance.

Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your Volkswagen Golf

Your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care location has several options to choose from when it comes to Volkswagen Golf engine tune-up services. The first is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. 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 Golf. 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’s fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. The result? Restored fuel system performance. Keep in mind that your Golf'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.

Where to Get a Tune-Up for Your Volkswagen Golf

If you’re looking for 2013 Golf engine tune-up services, head to Firestone Complete Auto Care. Follow Volkswagen's recommended maintenance schedule or book an appointment as soon as you notice one of the following: decreased gas mileage, "rough" idling or stalling when stopped, an illuminated check engine light on your dashboard, or a knocking sound when the engine is running.

*Ask a Firestone Complete Auto Care teammate about full terms and conditions for warranties.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 2013 Volkswagen Golfs

  • 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? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Volkswagen Golf. 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 engine? 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.
