1984 Volkswagen Rabbit Convertible Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • What happens if my Volkswagen Rabbit Convertible spark plugs fail? 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 do I do if I see a pool of liquid under my Volkswagen Rabbit Convertible? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Volkswagen Rabbit Convertible. 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.
  • Are hard starts and stops bad for my Volkswagen Rabbit Convertible 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.
