Tune Ups

How Often your car needs a Tune Up varies from one vehicle to another. Most older vehicles with non-electronic ignitions should be tuned every 10,000 to 15,000 kilometres s or every year, whichever comes first.
Newer cars with electronic ignition and fuel injection systems are scheduled to go from 25,000 to as many as 100,000 kilometres without needing a major tune-up.
Refer to your owner’s manual for recommended tune-up intervals, but be aware that even if it says that the vehicle doesn’t require scheduled tune-ups very often, it’s in your best interest to check periodically that your vehicle is working at peak efficiency.
Here are a couple of symptoms that tell you that your electronic ignition system may need to be tuned or adjusted:
– The car stalls a lot. The spark plugs may be fouled or worn, the gap between the spark plug electrodes may need adjusting, or an electronic sensing device may need to be adjusted.If you’re having trouble pinpointing why your vehicle is stalling, you can help your automotive technician diagnose the problem by paying attention to whether the engine stalls when it’s hot or cold or when the air conditioner is on.
– The engine is running roughly when idling or when you accelerate. Chances are the vehicle needs a tune-up.
– The car gets harder to start. The problem can be in the starting system (for example, a weak battery), in the fuel system (for example, a weak fuel pump), or in the ignition system, or can be due to a faulty electronic component, such as the electronic control unit.

How To Replace Headlight Wiring

When we found the headlight wiring issue on my Passat, I was not surprised. VW has had the reputation for wiring issues and electrical problems for many years. In this video I show you have to remove a Passat headlight, and replace the wiring harness for the bulbs. You can also use this video as a guide if you want to repair the headlight harness. In my case ALL the wires were damaged, and replacement made for a better overall repair. Remember that step one of this job is to remove the bumper cover. Here is “How to Remove and Install Passat Bumper Cover” video I did.
