2020 Volkswagen Passat Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Enhance Volkswagen Passat Performance with a Tune-Up

Is it tune-up time? If you're the type of driver who waits for something to go wrong with your vehicle, now is the time to work on that habit, particularly if you want to keep your 2020 Volkswagen Passat in tip-top shape. Regular engine tune-ups can optimize your Passat’s power on the road. Tune-ups help your engine start smoothly and run efficiently, which can mean better fuel economy (a win for you) and lower emissions (a win for the environment). 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.

Engine Tune-Up for Volkswagen Passat

The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several 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*. Another service option pays special attention to the filters in your Passat. Specifically, we replace the fuel filter and air filter. Our third service is a thorough cleaning of the fuel system. During this type of tune-up, we use a three-step process to get rid of harmful varnish, dirt, and carbon deposit buildup in your Passat’s fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. This goes a long way in boosting your fuel system’s overall performance. Consider this when choosing a tune-up service for your Passat: your vehicle’s maintenance record and mileage can determine which service is best. 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.

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

  • Will it hurt my Volkswagen Passat to drive with old spark plugs? 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 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 some driving habits better for my Volkswagen Passat engine than others? You can make your driving habits more engine-friendly. Hard starts and stops can increase the stress on engine parts, especially over many years. Boost your fuel economy and care for your engine by using gradual, smooth starts and stops instead.
