Regular oil changes based on your manufacturers recommendations are the most important part of vehicle maintenance and keeping your car on the road for as long as possible. Over time, oil breaks down and putting off those oil changes could do serious damage to your engine internals. A well lubricated engine will run cooler, smoother and have less overall wear and tear on parts. Some vehicles require Synthetic oil where others do not.
Every oil change at SWC Automotive includes:
Regular brake inspection is on every vehicles maintenance schedule.

Of course, if youre having trouble with your brakes, get your car inspected right away.
Here are some warning signs of brake system problems:
Steering & Suspension
Your vehicle's suspension keeps your car up off the road and helps provide a comfy ride. Its job is to keep your wheels firmly planted over bumps and through curves. Your suspension system has many essential parts. If you look under your car, its basically everything that connects your wheels to the frame. These are heavy duty parts that do a lot of work. They need to be inspected for damage and excessive wear at least once a year. A good time for this is when you get your annual alignment service in the spring.
Here are some warning signs of suspension system problems:
The best seasonal performance is achieved by purchasing tires to match the season you are driving in. Summer tires are designed for hot temperatures. The tread is engineered for good traction on dry or rainy roads. But the rubber compound in summer tires gets stiff when temperatures drop below 7 degrees Celsius, and snow and mud can pack into the tread, reducing the traction of the tire. Winter tires are designed for good traction on snowy surfaces. The tread actually throws snow off of the tire as the wheel turns. The rubber compound in a winter tire is soft so that it will remain flexible at temperatures below 7 degrees Celsius. At higher temperatures, however, the softer rubber wears down rapidly. All-season tires sacrifice some of the extreme performance of summer or winter tires, but they maintain adequate traction in either type of Burlington weather.
Here are some warning signs of tire problems:
Engine & Tune-Up
The better you maintain your vehicle, the less fuel you will use. For example, replacing your dirty engine air filter will pay for itself in improved mileage before your next oil change. A clean, well-maintained fuel system really pays big dividends in fuel efficiency. A clogged fuel filter wastes gas. So does a dirty fuel system, grimy fuel injectors and plugged up PCV valves. A fuel system service decreases the gas you use, and increases the power. Some of us ignore our Check Engine light. But fixing the problem that caused the light to come on will usually save some fuel as well. It may be a bad oxygen sensor that can really rob your fuel economy. And, it may be time for a tune-up. Tune-ups should improve your mileage.
Here are some warning signs of engine problems:
Heating & Cooling
Keeping your cooling system in good repair will help keep your engine running well. This means that a regular cooling system inspection should be on your schedule for routine preventive maintenance of your vehicle. Without proper preventive maintenance, you could still find yourself on the side of the highway waiting for your engine to cool down. Coolant can become corrosive over time, which can damage a radiator leading to an overheated engine. Changing the coolant periodically is good car care. There are many types of coolant. It varies from vehicle to vehicle, and using the wrong kind could damage your engine. The water pump is a critical component of your truck cooling system. It pumps the coolant to keep it circulating through the engine. The coolant is cooled in the radiator, then it travels through the engine, where it absorbs heat, then it returns to the radiator, where it releases the heat. And so on.
Here are some warning signs of cooling system problems:
The exhaust system on a vehicle is more complex than most motorists realize. It contains everything from old-fashioned pipes and clamps to sophisticated computers and sensors. All motorists know a properly functioning exhaust system is good for the environment, but sometimes we forget that a damaged exhaust system can be deadly. Thats why preventive maintenance on your exhaust system is so essential.
Here are some warning signs of exhaust system problems:
The transmission system in your vehicle allows you to change gears. Lower gears are power gears. They get your vehicle moving and get it up hills. Higher gears get the vehicle up to speed and get it rolling faster. If you have a standard transmission, then you have to do the work of shifting gears yourself. But with an automatic transmission, the vehicle shifts gears on its own. New transmissions arent cheap. Repairing them isnt cheap either. But changing transmission fluid is fairly inexpensive. Thats why responsible car care includes maintenance on the transmission system. Periodic fluid changes arent just good auto advice, they actually pay for themselves by preventing costly transmission repairs.
Here are some warning signs of transmission problems:
Batteries & Electrical
Extreme heat in summertime can greatly reduce the lifespan of your battery, and harsh temperatures in winter may lead to starting problems in the cold. It is important to have your battery, alternator and starter inspected and tested to make sure they are all performing within spec. Doing this early could save waiting on the side of the road for a tow truck, or waking up to go to work and finding your car will not start.
Here are some warning signs of electrical system problems:
