Your Guide to 1986 Volkswagen Scirocco Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Volkswagen Scirocco to last as long as possible. With proactive maintenance, your Scirocco could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Scirocco, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Just follow your 1986 Volkswagen Scirocco maintenance schedule!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Volkswagen themselves. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Scirocco perform better, increase your vehicle safety, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 1986 Volkswagen Scirocco problems later.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Volkswagen Scirocco Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1986 Volkswagen Scirocco for factory-recommended routine maintenance and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your Scirocco. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Could your 1986 Volkswagen Scirocco be ready for a new battery? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your Volkswagen Scirocco battery. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Volkswagen Scirocco could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can help your 1986 Volkswagen Scirocco's engine run smoother. To learn how often Volkswagen recommends you have the oil changed in your 1986 Scirocco, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1986 Volkswagen Scirocco.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Volkswagen Scirocco can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide the appropriate Volkswagen Scirocco steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Volkswagen Scirocco's steering and suspension system.

Without routine Volkswagen Scirocco maintenance, you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. We can help you with all those issues. Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Volkswagen Scirocco’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. Need a new Volkswagen Scirocco radiator? We can take care of that. A/C smelling musty? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 1986 Volkswagen Scirocco maintenance.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Volkswagen Scirocco? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • When should I switch my Volkswagen Scirocco to high mileage oil? If your Volkswagen Scirocco has ticked past 75,000 miles, consider switching to high mileage oil at your next oil change to give your engine what it needs to go another 75,000 (or more!). High mileage oil: make it a high priority!
  • Can Volkswagen dashboard warning lights wait? It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible. An illuminated dashboard light means something in your vehicle isn't functioning like it should.
