Welcome to Schmidt Auto Care | Springboro, OH

Your engine is the powerhouse of your vehicle. While if can be replaced, most vehicles are totaled without their engine. You might as well buy your next vehicle instead of replacing it. What does this mean for you? If you want to drive your beloved vehicle for the foreseeable future, you’d better learn to love your engine. Mostly, this comes down to preventative maintenance which makes sure that problems are dealt with before they become expensive and time-consuming. To do this, regular checkups, oil changes, and topping off fluids are all you need to do! Below are some tips on the best ways to put this engine love into action and make sure you and your engine are in it for the long haul together.

Oil Changes

It’s recommended to change your oil about every 3,000-5,000 miles depending on the vehicle. Check the vehicle’s manual to find out what your manufacturer recommends. If it’s been a while and you can’t remember the last time you had an oil change, definitely take it in to get new oil and make sure you’re not doing damage to your precious engine. What kind of damage? Not changing the oil causes the engine to run too hot. This could cause parts to warp and you could blow an expensive gasket.

Keeping your Engine Breathing and Cool

Keeping your engine cool is the name of the game, and there are a number of systems in place to make sure that the components of the engine are cooled in different ways. As a result, there are parts that need to be changed and coolant tanks that need to be filled periodically. For proper airflow, the air filter in the air intake needs to be changed once it’s out of date. In addition, something that’s an easy fix any driver can do on their own is filling their engine coolant with a funnel and the bottle. A word of caution though, if you’re in a situation where you’re losing coolant all the time, come in and have us take a look as this is not indicative of a properly functioning motor.

Belts and Spark Plugs

While these have nothing to do with one another they do have one thing in common, they are something that we can take care of for you and generally takes more of a mechanic’s trained hand to do. Your sparkplugs need to be changed every about every 30,000 miles and if they’re not changed you could do severe damage to your engine. Luckily for you, when you bring your vehicle in for regular engine maintenance, we’ll check the sparkplugs to make sure they’re good to go before you drive away. Belt damage can also cause major engine damage. They may just look like belts to you, but to us, it’s easy to tell when there’s wear a belt needs to be changed, and making the change is no problem at all.

Whether it’s a belt or a sparkplug, it’s not meaningless to us at Schmidt Auto Care. We’ll catch the little problems with your motor before they become big ones at your next preventative maintenance appointment.
