  • VOLKSWAGEN Routine Maintenance

  • VW Timing Belt Service

We do not just throw a belt on these cars and call it a day; we do this service correctly and replace additional components while doing so. We usually upgrade the water pump at this time with one that has a metal impeller, versus the original, which is weak plastic. We also replace other common failure items in the same vicinity while performing this service such as your camshaft seals, crankshaft seal, timing belt idler, tensioner, roller, water pump gasket, thermostat and belts if necessary. This ensures that you are good to go for the next 90,000 or so miles.

  • VOLKSWAGEN Fuel Injection Service

    AudiFuelOur fuel and intake cleaning service is not your run-of-the-mill can of detergent you get at your parts store and dump into the gas tank. We take this service very seriously and provide an effective cleaning of your vehicle's injection and intake system. We use a high-pressure system that runs a concentrated detergent through the fuel lines, fuel rails, fuel injectors, and intake valves. This cleans out any sediment that has built up over the years. We then run a second high-pressure sprayer with a different detergent through the intake manifold that cleans the intake manifold, throttle bodies, and continues to clean the intake valves. We see substantial increases in the vehicle's running characteristics, which generally results in better fuel economy and boosted performance. This service is recommended to be performed every 24,000 miles.
