VW Golf R – Service, Supersprint Exhaust Fit and Engine Tune

Customers come to Ramspeed not only for vehicle services, but for tuning and performance upgrade work too. The VW Golf below came to the workshop not too long ago for a Service B, as per the log book schedule and current km on the vehicle. This included an engine flush as well as a DSG service.

During a thorough inspection of the vehicle, it was found that the spark plugs needed to be replaced too.  Spark plugs are needed to ignite the compressed fuel/air mixture by an electric spark. Without this, the vehicles’ engine will start problematically, if at all.

The customer had purchased a Supersprint Exhaust from RamSpeed Imports and appointed RamSpeed Automotive to fit it to the Golf. Supersprint Exhausts are built and designed to insure additional power to enhance overall performance. Separate to this, the customer had requested a DSG and engine tune, which was carried out successfully.

VW Golf GTI – Service B and Brake Pads

The owner of this shiny black Golf GTI required a scheduled Service B on his car.

The Service B includes replacing oil filters, inspecting brakes, checking suspension points, drain and refill engine, check engine compartments for leaks and much more.  This GTI required new spark plugs and oil filters which were replaced successfully.

During the inspection, our technician found that both the front and rear brake pads, including the wear sensors, were worn and required replacement. As any driver would know, brake pads are a key brake part because they are the component that contacts and applies pressure and friction to a vehicle’s brake rotors. Though the role of brake pads in braking is pretty simple, the brake pads themselves are anything but.

It’s fair to say the owner of this well maintained Golf GTI was pleased when the car was picked up from the workshop.

Volkswagen Golf GTi Mirror Replacement and Service

Some customers come into our workshop for repairs but also get other work done at the same time. The below VW Golf GTi was here to get the passenger mirror replaced which was broken off but also had a minor service done as it was due.

VW-Golf-Wheels-Front-Lip-Bonnet-RamSpeed-3 VW-Golf-Wheels-Exhaust-Diffuser-RamSpeed-2The outer mirror needed to be supplied including the glass and had to be colour matched and painted. We then completed the service according to the log book schedule and the current km on the vehicle.

Volkswagen Touareg Service and Diagnostics

We worked on a Volkswagen Touareg which needed a minor service and to get some errors checked.

The minor service was done first which only needed an oil and oil filter change. We then looked into the rear tail gate where the soft close was inoperable. The fuses for the motor were checked which were all ok then the power and earth at the plug connection. No error codes for the rear soft close were stored but when we looked up the wiring diagrams we found the relay location which had a burnt out relay. Once this was replaced we tested the vehicle which was all ok.

Volkswagen Passat Service and Noise Issues

One of our long time customers was booked in to get a minor service done on his Volkswagen Passat, and to look at some issues.

The service was done first which was a minor one according to the log book and current km on the vehicle. We changed the oil, air and pollution filters during this service and ran an engine detox through the car. Also changed was the timing belt and waterpump.

We looked into some tyre air pressure issues and lubricated the passenger door with special wax as it was squeaking. A TPMS switch was needed to rectify the hard fault logged with the switch. Another noise was apparent with the drivers door brake when closing which we replaced.

The coolant connector at the back of the cylinder head was replaced due to it leaking coolant. We then filled and bled the cooling system as required.
