2016 Volkswagen GTI Tune-Up & Engine Service

Tune Into Your Volkswagen GTI

Is it time for an engine tune-up? If you tend to ignore your car until something goes wrong, now is the time to work on that habit, particularly if you want to keep your 2016 Volkswagen GTI in tip-top shape. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your GTI. 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.

Volkswagen GTI Engine Tune-Up Services

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 2016 Volkswagen GTI. 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. 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 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. Ask one of our technicians what your vehicle needs, based on your driving habits and your car’s current condition.

Where to Get a Volkswagen GTI Tune-Up

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for your next 2016 GTI engine tune-up. 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, knocking noises in the engine, or a lit up check engine light on your dashboard.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 2016 Volkswagen GTIs

  • What happens if my Volkswagen GTI spark plugs fail? 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 do I do if I see a pool of liquid under my Volkswagen GTI? Puddles could indicate an oil leak, coolant leak, or brake fluid leak– all of which can critically hurt your engine. Have your engine inspected as soon as you spot a pool of liquid in your usual parking spot.
  • Are some driving habits better for my Volkswagen GTI engine than others? 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.
