Common issues we’ve seen with VW:


Adblue/A diesel fluid that helps to reduce harmful chemicals from your exhaust emissions. Adblue needs to be regularly topped up, and if not, it can affect your engine maintenance and stop your VW from working. Contact us today to stay on top of your Adblue levels before your warning light appears.


Engine timing/Your engine timing is critical in having everything work as it should. So if the timing is off, whether it’s a software or mechanical issue, it can cause severe damage to your engine. If you have noticed your exhaust leaking unburnt fuel or ticking noise from your engine, get in touch immediately to arrange your engine inspection.


HP Pump/High-pressure pumps inject fuel into your engine quickly and efficiently. But if your HP pump is faulty, your car may come to a stop or potentially not start in the first place. If you have problems with your engine, give us a call today and let our team take care of your VW.


Door locks/Depending on the age and model of your VW, issues with your door locks could be a software issue and maybe even a faulty wire. Book in for our diagnostic evaluation today, and let us remove the guesswork and get to the cause of the problem, fixing your VW the first time.


DPF/Your Diesel Particulate Filter is designed to remove harmful chemicals from your emissions. However, the filters have a lifespan and need replacing regularly. We recommend changing your DPF every two years to ensure that your VW will always meet NCT emission standards. Book for your DPF check today.


Drivetrain/The drivetrain is responsible for making sure your VW has a smooth ride. If there is a fault within your drivetrain, you may notice gear slipping or hear a whirring noise when you are driving. Book in with Donnellan Auto Services, and let us get your VW back to optimum performance.

    This is my go to garage for all my car's needs.
    This week my son had an emergency situation, travelling to visit me, so I called John for advice.
