Another service option pays special attention to the filters in your Jetta. Specifically, we replace the fuel filter and air filter.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 1990 Volkswagen Jettas

  • When should Volkswagen Jetta spark plugs be replaced? 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 Jetta? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Volkswagen Jetta. 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 Jetta engine? Hard starts and stops put extra wear and tear on engine components. Smooth, gradual starts and stops, on the other hand, are a great way to help your engine run better. They can also help maximize your fuel economy.
