1986 Volkswagen Scirocco Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Tune Into Your Volkswagen Scirocco

Is your engine overdue for a tune-up?

Regular engine tune-ups can optimize your Scirocco’s power on the road. Tune-ups help your engine start smoothly and run efficiently, which can lead to lower emission levels and better fuel economy. When you get routine engine tune-ups based on Volkswagen's recommendations, you can rest assured you’re investing in your Scirocco’s long-term engine performance.

1986 Volkswagen Scirocco Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • Will it hurt my Volkswagen Scirocco 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 do I do if I see a pool of liquid under my Volkswagen Scirocco? 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.
  • What do hard starts and stops do to my Scirocco 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.
