Engine Tune-Up Service for Your 2020 Volkswagen GTI

Tune-Ups to Help Your Volkswagen GTI Run Better

Is it tune-up time? If you usually wait until your car has an issue to take it in for service, it might be time to change your ways, especially if you drive a 2020 Volkswagen GTI. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your GTI’s engine. 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 follow the guidelines specified by Volkswagen for your vehicle’s tune-up schedule, 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 2020 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. 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. This can improve your fuel system’s performance (and therefore, your engine’s performance). Keep in mind that your GTI's mileage and maintenance history can uniquely impact its tune-up needs. If you’re not sure what services are the best fit for your car, let us help! Chat with a Firestone technician before you jump into a specific service to ensure your engine tune-up money is well-spent.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 2020 Volkswagen GTIs

  • Will it hurt my Volkswagen GTI to drive with old spark plugs? Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so. Without the spark of electricity created by spark plugs, your engine doesn’t have the combustion it needs to start — which could leave you stranded on the road. Always replace your spark plugs on time based on Volkswagen’s recommendations.
  • What should I do if I see leaks under my GTI? 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.
  • Are hard starts and stops bad for my Volkswagen 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.
