There are many reasons your Volkswagen’s engine might fail, but the most common include overheating due to a broken thermostat or water pump, and on early aircooled we commonly see an over-adjusted valve or missing engine tin. Also, improper lubrication and a lack or excess of oil pressure can cause catastrophic engine failure. When any of these issues occur, different engine internals, such as bearings, can become damaged and even inoperable. With our superior customer service and extensive experience, we will help you get your VW back on the road in no time.
Classic VW models remain popular among drivers and car enthusiasts for a reason – they’re unique, fun to drive, and have a certain charm that modern cars lack. However, as any VW owner knows, keeping an older car on the road can be a challenge. When problems arise, it’s important to find a reputable shop that specializes in classic VWs. Bill Trafton began rebuilding aircooled VW engines at the VW dealership in the 60s when early Beetles and Buses were still being sold new. Trafton’s Foreign Auto has been rebuilding aircooled VW engines for decades, making Trafton’s one of the longest aircooled VW engine builders in the NW. Our experienced technicians are familiar with all of the unique challenges that these cars can pose.
