What Are Some Common VW Maintenance Items?

Volkswagen Oil and Filter

To keep running smoothly, your Volkswagen highly relies on oil and oil filters. Oil helps in lubricating, cooling, and cleaning the internal engine components. With time, motor oil becomes contaminated. Your car needs an oil and filter change every six months (or 10,000km). When it is time for an oil change, bring your Volkswagen to Parts Plug in Oshawa, Ontario L1J 8P7

Oil and filter meeting or exceeding all Volkswagen specifications such as Volkswagen 502 00

Reprogramming maintenance interval on vehicle computer so that the oil change reminder comes on at the appropriate interval.

Safe and environmentally compliant disposal of all used fluids. 



Volkswagen Transmission Maintenance

Any car manufacturer, Volkswagen included, will tell you that preventive maintenance is critical to the vehicles lifespan. Like other auto parts, car transmissions aren’t built to last forever. However, you can increase the transmission’s lifespan by performing regular preventive maintenance. The easiest way to maintain peak performance and fuel economy is to provide regular transmission maintenance for your Volkswagen. Although most manufacturers recommend a transmission flush every 60,000km or every two to three years, some symptoms may indicate that you need a transmission flush sooner. Some of the symptoms that indicate that your car needs a transmission flush are: transmission grinding or making strange noises, problems shifting gears, slipping gears, surging, and a delay in vehicle movement. Flushing the used fluid from the transmission washes away tiny particles of dirt, clutch material, and metal shavings. To have your Volkswagen transmission maintained by experts, visit Parts Plug today!

Volkswagen Differential Maintenance

The differential is a car part that compensates for the difference in travel distance between the inner wheels and outer wheels when the vehicle is turning. Due to the differential’s position in most non front-wheel-drive (FWD) vehicles such as your AWD Volkswagen (located at the rear and under the car), it does not get any of the star treatment the engine gets. The one thing that every car owner needs to know is that failure of the differential will mean failure of the car. To save the differential from failure, you need to have differential fluid changed every 30,000 to 50,000 kilometers. Changing the oil in the differential is as important as changing the car’s engine oil. Although checking and changing differential oil is pretty easy, you need to visit an auto shop to get a comprehensive differential flush. For Volkswagen differential flush services, visit or call Parts Plug in Oshawa, Ontario L1J 8P7 today.

Volkswagen Fuel System Maintenance

Fuel injection is a system for admitting fuel into an engine. Since the 90s, fuel injectors have completely replaced carburetors as the primary means of getting gasoline into the engine. A fuel injector atomizes the fuel by forcibly pumping it through a small nozzle (under high pressure). Failure of the fuel injection system means poor performance and ultimately destroys the engine. Make sure your vehicle’s fuel injection system is maintained properly. For all your Volkswagen fuel injection maintenance and replacement needs, call 905-432-7584 or visit Parts Plug in Oshawa today.

Volkswagen Ignition System Maintenance

Ignition cables also known as spark plug wires are an important part of your car’s ignition system. For cars without a coil on plug design, they transfer the spark from the ignition coil to spark plugs that ignite the mixture of fuel and air. The mixture starts and runs the engine. Over time, ignition wires and cables get weak and break down. This makes it impossible for the spark to reach the engine cylinders properly. A spark plug delivers electric current to the combustion chamber from the ignition system an issue with either of these critical components results in the engine misfiring. The car will eventually fail to start. If it does start, it will run poorly and burn more gas. Common symptoms of a faulty ignition system are: poor gas mileage, engine misfires, engine light is on, and engine may vibrate. If your Volkswagen needs new ignition cables and wires, call or visit Parts Plug in Oshawa. Here, you will have the wires and cables changed by a top-rated Volkswagen mechanic.

Volkswagen Tires

As tires get older, they lose traction and deteriorate from the inside out, increasing the likelihood of a tire bursting. This can cause a rapid loss of control of your vehicle. To have a better performing vehicle, you need to make sure the tires are in good condition. For all your Volkswagen tire needs, contact Parts Plug today.

Volkswagen Brake System Maintenance

Brake fluid will absorb water from the air over time, causing the brake system to become less effective and the fluid to become corrosive, possibly damaging the system. It is important to perform a brake fluid flush regularly to ensure that your vehicle is using fresh fluid. Various brake pad and rotor problems can usually be identified by squealing brakes. If your brake pads deteriorate completely, you’ll hear a grinding metal-on-metal sound when braking, meaning that it’s too late and you’re ruining your rotors or drums! Those with knowledge of auto repair may be able to fix this at home, but you should always see a Volkswagen repair professional, such as the team at Parts Plug immediately if you have brake problems.

Volkswagen Engine Maintenance

Your vehicles engine is the beating heart of a complex system of modules, energy transfer mechanisms, climate controllers and safety components. Engines have come a long way in the last 75 years but even so, most require some level of basic maintenance that goes beyond oil changes and regular tune ups. A timing belt is a part of your car’s internal combustion engine. The belt synchronizes the camshaft and the crankshaft rotation so that the engine valves open and close at the correct timings. Also, the belt prevents the piston from striking the valves in an interference engine. A timing Belt is a rubber belt that usually features teeth on the inside surface, while a timing chain is a metal roller chain. Although different manufacturers have their recommended mileage, you need to have your Volkswagen checked regularly. To have it checked by experts, contact Parts Plug today!

What Are Some Common VW Repairs?

Volkswagen Driveline Repairs

A driveline is a part of your Volkswagen that connects the engine and the transmission to the axles and ultimately the wheels. The driveline or drivetrain as its often referred to consists of the parts of the powertrain less the engine and transmission. Failure of the driveline means that the car would not move since energy cannot be transmitted from the engine to the wheel axles. Therefore, make sure that your Volkswagen driveline is regularly inspected and serviced. And, at Parts Plug you can have your driveline serviced by Volkswagen experts in Oshawa.

Volkswagen Exhaust Repairs

In a motor vehicle, an exhaust system is a piping used to guide exhaust fumes away from the engine and passenger compartment – usually to the rear of the vehicle. A properly functioning exhaust system not only sounds better, it is better – for you, your car, and the environment. Parts Plug has expert technicians to service your Volkswagen exhaust system.

Volkswagen Suspension Repair

Much like a shock absorber (shocks), your car’s struts provide a dampening effect as you travel over a road’s surface. By absorbing the shock of the road, struts allow passengers to ride in a car without constant and uncomfortable motion. Struts work a bit differently than shocks in that they provide structural support for your car’s suspension. This means that a strut supports your car’s weight, unlike shocks which only regulate the speed at which the weight is transferred. Struts usually last around 80,000 or 120,000 kilometers. This is simply because the damping characteristics of the parts gradually deteriorate over time. Various other vehicle suspension components are required in order to facilitate a smooth ride, components such as a vehicles control arms and bushings all work together with the vehicles shocks/struts to provide a comfortable ride. Call Parts Plug at 905-432-7584 if you have questions about the suspension on your Volkswagen. Our expert technicians will diagnose any problems and help you make an informed decision about repairs.
