Volkswagen Car Regular Checkup

If you don't want to ruin your day, take the time to properly maintain your Volkswagen's engine. This will ensure that your VW car doesnot breakdown in the most remote of areas.

Step I

Check your Volkswagen Air Cooled Engine oil levels every week. Volkswagen Engines run at extremely high temperatures and some models will burn through oil at an alarming rate. You do not want to run dry on oil. This will damage the vw engine to cease. Once this has happened, you either need a new engine or a new car. Both of these issues are extremely costly. Can you afford to be without your vw car for a lengthy amount of time?

Step II

Change your Volkswagen Engine oil every 3,000 miles. After driving for a certain amount of time, oil becomes dirty and sluggish. Keeping the oil changed regularly reduces dirt circulating in the vw engine.

Step III

Another troublesome issue is the belts. With every oil change, you should have the fan belts and air hoses checked for wear and tear.

Step IV

Antifreeze should be changed every year. Have a professional flush out the cooling system and replace the tanks with new coolant. This can keep your vw car radiator from developing leaks.

Step V

Transmission fluid should be checked regularly. The fluid should be changed every 36,000 miles. If the head gasket leaks, your coolant will leak into the oil system. This is an extremely costly repair, so have them checked regularly to prevent this issue. Always stop first before shifting into drive.

Step VI

Look regularly in your driveway for leaks. If you spot any, take note of the color of the fluid and then take the Volkswagen car for servicing. Transmission fluid is pinkish, antifreeze is green, oil is golden brown, and brake fluid is reddish. Knowing which fluid is leaking can help a garage determine the severity of your problem. They can fit you into a busy schedule if the leak is potentially hazardous.

Step VII

To keep your vw air conditioning system working properly, run the system every month, even in the winter. The same is true with the heating system. It should be run in the summer to prevent any seizing.


Try to brake in advance. Sudden stopswear down brake pads of your vw car far more quickly. Have your brakes checked regularly for wear and tear.

Step IX

Tires should be rotated every 7,000 miles. Inspect them visually every month for tire wear, punctures, and bulges.

Step X

Pay attention to your Volkswagen spares & especially to battery. If you see white deposits forming on the terminals, clean them with a wire brush and then clean the battery with a mixture of baking soda and water.

Step XI

Keep your Volkswagen car rust free by keeping it waxed once per season. Have the under carriage washed at least twice a year.

Step XII

Use WD40 to keep door hinges well lubricated. This keeps doors opening and closing properly.


Follow your car manual's recommended maintenance schedule. This guarantees the warranty will cover costly repairs, but also prevents unexpected breakdowns. All it takes is a few simple checks every month, and you can protect yourself from breaking down in an unfamiliar or remote area. Your safety is that important isn't it?
