2016 Volkswagen Golf Tune-Up & Engine Service

Tune-Ups to Help Your Volkswagen Golf Run Better

Is your engine overdue for a 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 2016 Volkswagen Golf’s engine to last for a long time. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your Golf’s engine. 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 can rest assured you’re investing in your Golf’s long-term engine performance.

Engine Tune-Up for 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. One option 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*. Another service option pays special attention to the filters in your Golf. Specifically, we replace the fuel filter and air 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. This can improve your fuel system’s performance (and therefore, your engine’s performance). Here’s something to remember when choosing services: the mileage and service history of your Golf can determine what kind of service it 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.

Where Should I Go for My Volkswagen Golf Tune-Up?

If you’re looking for 2016 Golf engine tune-up services, head to Firestone Complete Auto Care. Not sure when you’re due for a tune-up? Use Volkswagen’s recommended maintenance schedule as a reference point, or schedule an appointment ASAP if you notice any of these signs: shaking while the engine is idling, poor fuel economy, engine knocking, or an illuminated check engine light.

Questions About 2016 Volkswagen Golf Engine Tune-Ups

  • When should Volkswagen Golf 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 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.
  • What do hard starts and stops do to my 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.
