2019 Volkswagen Passat Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Tune Into Your Volkswagen Passat

Is it time for an engine tune-up? If you usually wait until your car has an issue to take it in for service, it could be time for a new way of doing things, especially if you want your 2019 Volkswagen Passat’s engine to last for a long time. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your Passat. 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 Passat’s engine running smoother, longer.

Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your Volkswagen Passat

Your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care location has several options to choose from when it comes to Volkswagen Passat engine tune-up services. The first is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. It includes a complete visual inspection of engine components, installation of new spark plugs, and a lifetime warranty on parts*. The second service focuses on your Passat's filters, specifically replacing the air filter and fuel filter. 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 Passat. This can improve your fuel system’s performance (and therefore, your engine’s performance). Here’s something to remember when choosing services: the mileage and service history of your Passat 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.

Where to Get a Volkswagen Passat Tune-Up

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for your next 2019 Passat engine tune-up. Follow Volkswagen's recommended maintenance schedule or book an appointment as soon as you notice one of the following: stalling or shaky idling when you’re stopped, diminished fuel economy, engine knocking, or an illuminated check engine light.

2019 Volkswagen Passat Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • When should Volkswagen Passat spark plugs be replaced? 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 does a puddle underneath my Volkswagen Passat mean? 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 hard starts and stops bad for my Volkswagen Passat 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.
