VW and Audi Repair and Service
The mechanic working on your VW or Audi is ASE Certified and is experienced in using the diagnostic tools needed to help us find the problem if the service engine soon or other malfunction indicator light comes on. Inevitably, all vehicles need repairs to the various systems as they age, and that includes the electronics – the sensors and computers that run the engine.
Common repairs on VW and Audi vehicles include:
- Water pumps
- Timing belts
- Alternators and batteries
- Brakes, rotors, brake lines, and other brake components
- Ignition components, including coils, ignition switches and spark plugs
- Suspension and steering, including tie rod ends, bushings, shocks, struts, springs, racks, and other suspension and steering components
- Transmissions and engines
- Air conditioning and heating, including air compressors, evaporators and heater cores
- And more
Audi and Volkswagen Maintenance Items
Wear and tear items are considered maintenance items. These are the services that the manufacturer periodically recommends. Maintenance includes:
- Checking and, when necessary, replacing the tires
- Brake pads and rotors
- Oil and filter changes
- Transmission and filter changes and flushes
- Power steering fluid flushes
- Coolant changes and flushes
- Brake fluid flushes
- Checking the belts and hoses, and replacing them as needed
If you drive in adverse conditions, the manufacturer recommends that you do some of these services more often. Adverse conditions might include a lot of mountain driving, especially if you are towing, or often driving on gravel roads.
Volkswagen and Audi Diagnostics
The electronics on or in an engine make the engine more efficient and environmentally friendly. However, the downside to them is that you can’t visibly see problems. Our ASE Certified auto technicians use diagnostic equipment to determine the problem with the sensors and other components that govern the fuel, ignition and exhaust systems.
When you see the engine light, it is because one of the sensor’s readings was out of range causing the ECM (engine control module) to register a code. The ECM then illuminates the service engine soon light on the dash to let you know there is a problem.
To determine what that annoying light is telling you, we attach a scan tool and read the codes. However, a code doesn’t necessarily mean that particular sensor is bad — it depends on which sensor and its function. An oxygen sensor code usually doesn’t mean one of the O2 sensors are bad – it usually means that the O2 sensor is picking up on a problem with the engine’s air/fuel ratio and the ECM could not correct the mixture to rectify the reading.
