Is your engine overdue for a tune-up? If you usually wait until your car has an issue to take it in for service, it might be time to change your ways, especially if you want your 1986 Volkswagen Vanagon’s engine to last for a long time. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your Vanagon. 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 get routine engine tune-ups based on Volkswagen's recommendations, you can rest assured you’re investing in your Vanagon’s long-term engine performance.
Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 1986 Volkswagen Vanagon. 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 Vanagon. Specifically, we replace the fuel filter and air filter. Yet another service is a fuel system cleaning process, which involves removing varnish, dirt, and carbon deposits that have built up inside the fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate in your Vanagon. The result? Restored fuel system performance. Consider this when choosing a tune-up service for your Vanagon: your vehicle’s maintenance record and mileage can determine which service is best. A one-size-fits-all engine tune-up procedure doesn’t necessarily exist. Ask one of our technicians what your vehicle needs, based on your driving habits and your car’s current condition.
Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for your next 1986 Vanagon engine tune-up. Not sure when you’re due for a tune-up? Use Volkswagen’s recommended maintenance schedule as a reference point, or schedule an appointment ASAP if you notice any of these signs: shaking while the engine is idling, poor fuel economy, engine knocking, or an illuminated check engine light.
