Maintenance for Your 1987 Volkswagen Scirocco

What is the recommended maintenance schedule for the 1987 Volkswagen Scirocco?

Here’s Why 1987 Volkswagen Scirocco Scheduled Maintenance Matters

You want your Volkswagen Scirocco to last as long as possible. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper 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. There's no need to guess when it's time to get Scirocco maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1987 Volkswagen Scirocco!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Volkswagen themselves. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Scirocco's life, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1987 Volkswagen Scirocco problems in the future.

Overview of Essential Volkswagen Scirocco Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1987 Volkswagen Scirocco for factory-recommended routine maintenance and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. 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.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1987 Volkswagen Scirocco. If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and 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. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. 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 support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1987 Volkswagen Scirocco running newer, longer. To learn how often Volkswagen recommends you have the oil changed in your 1987 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'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1987 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. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide Volkswagen Scirocco steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Volkswagen Scirocco's steering system with regular maintenance.

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 got it. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 1987 Volkswagen Scirocco maintenance.

  • What do I do if I hit 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? Do you have more than 75,000 miles on your Volkswagen Scirocco? If so, request to switch to high mileage oil at your next oil change. This type of oil is specially formulated to keep aging engine parts in the best possible condition.
  •  Why are my Volkswagen dashboard lights on? Because there might be a problem under the hood. Those warning lights are there for a reason! As soon as you notice that one’s illuminated, take your Volkswagen Scirocco to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
