YES. That oil change is important!

Service in Westerville OhioEngines are really tough on motor oil so make sure you have yours changed at the recommended service intervals. Engines experience a significant amount of friction and heat while also having to deal with pollutants.... eventually, all this will cause the oil to lose its ability to lubricate and cool properly. This can result in major damage to your engine. Changing your oil easy and cost effective way to protect your vehicle.

I know we all used to seeing the dash warning light come on and thinking "I need to get that oil change done soon". But then we get busy and start ignoring that light.  BAD IDEA!  Ignoring that small maintenance can cause serious issues and no one wants a big bill that can result from service neglect.

Westerville Automotive brakeWe take Brake Service seriously here at Westerville Automotive In Westerville Ohio.  Most Westerville drivers know that braking means slowing or stopping a vehicle. The mechanical aspects of the brakes themselves are just one issue. There’s also the power brake system and brake fluid. And then there are the tires, which are critical to the effectiveness of the brakes.

Prevent Cooling System Failure

Cooling system problems are the most common reason for mechanical failure for our Westerville - Columbus drivers During summer driving which is largely avoidable. Our ASE certified technicians see it often. Here’s what Westerville auto owners need to know about their cooling system. First, the terms coolant and antifreeze are pretty much used interchangeably. The fluid cools your engine while it’s running and it keeps it from freezing when it’s cold.

Your cooling system is filled with a 50/50 mixture of water and antifreeze/coolant. So if you’re topping off antifreeze/coolant, it is vital to add the proper amount of each. Distilled water is much better than tap water. Now you can buy pre-mixed coolant so make sure you know what you’re putting in.

Two more cautions for auto owners: first, never add coolant when the engine is hot. This can lead to serious burns. Second, there are many antifreeze formulas. Your manufacturer recommends a specific type that won’t harm your cooling system components. Use the wrong fluid and you could void your cooling system warranty. Your considerate Westerville Automotive service specialist can help you with all this.

All vehicle manufacturers have schedules for when you should change your coolant. It’s vital to follow the schedule, because neglecting your cooling system allows the fluid to become corrosive. You’ll get leaks which can lead to pricey damage. Check with your service advisor at Westerville Automotive to see if it’s time for a cooling system inspection and service.
