Keep Your Volkswagen Running Smoothly with Dealership Service

Maintenance is critical for keeping your Volkswagen running smoothly and efficiently. The service department here at Walker Volkswagen is here to make maintenance effortless for all of our customers. Let's look at the range of services you can get when you bring your vehicle in.

Routine Maintenance Keeps Your Volkswagen in Great Shape

Routine maintenance keeps your car running smoothly. The oil in your engine reduces friction, lubricates moving parts, reduces wear, and creates a seal between the pistons and cylinder walls. Oil breaks down in the high temperatures of an engine. That's why it needs to be changed regularly. Otherwise, varnish and carbon build up inside the engine, shortening its life. Come in and have your oil changed as recommended in your Volkswagen owner's manual.

Besides oil, your car has a range of other liquids it relies on to run smoothly. These include brake fluid, transmission fluid, coolant, windshield wiper fluid, and power steering fluid. It's important to check these regularly and top them off as needed. If you need someone to handle this for you, our service department at our Metairie, LA dealership is here to help with your fluid flushes!

Your car's tires are critical for keeping you firmly on the road. Rotating the tires regularly helps keep them wearing evening, which prolongs their usable life. Tires need to be inspected to ensure they have a healthy amount of tread left. As tread wears away, the tires have less grip on the road, especially in wet, muddy, or snowy conditions. The inspection also looks for cracks and defects in the tire. If you need new tires, the service department here in Metarie near New Orleans can recommend and install the appropriate models.

When you are driving down the road, you need confidence that your brakes are going to work when you need them. If your brakes start to feel spongy, you should have your brakes inspected. Also, if you hear grinding or squealing when you hit the brake pedal, you may need to replace the brake pads. Bring your Volkswagen into the dealership service department for any brake issues.

If the "Check Engine" light comes on, it's important to figure out why. This light can come on for several reasons. The easiest way to figure out the problem is to bring it into the service department and let us hook it up to the computer. We can tell you what the issue is and the best solution to correct it.

Service and Repair

Routine maintenance will keep your Volkswagen running smoothly. However, as with any mechanical system, things wear out even with regular service. We can handle any maintenance or repair needs Marrero area drivers might have. Here are a few common issues we see in the service department.

Your muffler does two important things. First, it helps reduce the noise coming from the vehicle. Second, it helps reduce the amount of emissions coming from the vehicle. Modern mufflers can last several years without issue. However, going over bumps and potholes can damage them. If you start hearing more noise coming from the engine, get the muffler checked.

Are you having issues starting your car? It can happen in colder temperatures or when something is going wrong in the ignition system. Your battery could be going bad, or the starter may be misfiring. If you keep having issues starting your car, make an appointment and let us take a look.

Things happen when you are driving down the road. If you find yourself stranded on the side of the road, get to safety first. Then, call for roadside assistance. If they cannot get your vehicle working again, have them bring it here. We will find out what's wrong and get you back on the road as soon as possible.
