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 2006 Volkswagen GTI’s engine to last for a long time. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your GTI’s engine. Tune-ups give your engine a boost in efficiency, which can mean better fuel economy (a win for you) and lower emissions (a win for the environment). When you take your car for regular engine tune-ups as recommended by Volkswagen, you’re taking vital steps toward keeping your GTI’s engine running smoother, longer.
The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several Volkswagen GTI 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*. A second service option replaces the air and fuel filter in your GTI. 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 GTI. The result? Restored fuel system performance. Keep in mind that your GTI'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.
Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for your next 2006 GTI engine tune-up. Follow Volkswagen's recommended maintenance schedule or book an appointment as soon as you notice one of the following: stalling or shaky idling when you’re stopped, diminished fuel economy, knocking noises in the engine, or a lit up check engine light on your dashboard.
*Ask a Firestone Complete Auto Care teammate about full terms and conditions for warranties.
