Is it tune-up time? If you tend to ignore your car until something goes wrong, now is the time to work on that habit, especially if you drive a 2018 Volkswagen GTI. Regular engine tune-ups can optimize your GTI’s power on the road. Tune-ups give your engine a boost in efficiency, 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 invest in your GTI's long-term health and engine performance.
The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several Volkswagen GTI engine tune-up services. The standard Firestone Tune-Up is one service option. It includes a complete visual inspection of engine components, installation of new spark plugs, and a lifetime warranty on parts*. Another service option pays special attention to the filters in your GTI. Specifically, we replace the fuel filter and air filter. 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. This goes a long way in boosting your fuel system’s overall performance. Keep in mind that your GTI's mileage and maintenance history can uniquely impact its tune-up needs. This means that a tune-up service that’s a great fit for another car may not be optimal for yours. Chat with a Firestone technician before you jump into a specific service to ensure your engine tune-up money is well-spent.
Schedule your next 2018 GTI engine tune-up service at 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.
