Engine Tune-Up Service for Your 2014 Volkswagen GTI

Enhance Volkswagen GTI Performance with a Tune-Up

Is it time for an engine tune-up? If you're the type of driver who waits for something to go wrong with your vehicle, now is the time to work on that habit, especially if you want your 2014 Volkswagen GTI’s engine to last for a long time. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your GTI. 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 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.

Engine Tune-Up for Volkswagen GTI

The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several Volkswagen GTI 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 GTI. 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 GTI’s fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. The result? Restored fuel system performance. Here’s something to remember when choosing services: the mileage and service history of your GTI 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.

2014 Volkswagen GTI Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • What happens if my Volkswagen GTI spark plugs fail? 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 does a puddle underneath my Volkswagen GTI mean? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Volkswagen GTI. 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.
  • What do hard starts and stops do to my GTI engine? 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.
