Oil Change in Ottawa West, ON

Cars that last over a decade have one thing in common: preventive maintenance.

Throughout the life of your vehicle, the manufacturer expects you to visit an automotive service center for factory scheduled maintenance. This includes common services like oil changes and tire rotations, as well as component inspections at certain mileage intervals. You may also need to replace certain system parts, like brake pads and rotors, as identified in your owner's manual.

Following your maintenance schedule not only helps you get the longest life from your vehicle, it also keeps your car or truck covered under the factory warranty and extended warranties.

It makes sense. Your car manufacturer doesn't want to pay for a vehicle that hasn't been taken care of properly. Automotive maintenance saves you money in the long run by reducing the chance that unexpected problems will occur and ensuring you're covered if something does go wrong that shouldn't.

Silverstar Automotive Solutions provides preventive maintenance for Ottawa West, ON, Nepean, ON, Barrhaven, ON, and surrounding areas.

Common maintenance services we offer include but are not limited to:

Mechanic performing automotive maintenance in Ottawa West, ON
  • Lube & Oil Change: Your car requires lubrication to ensure its mechanical parts work seamlessly together. Without good motor oil, friction causes wear and tear on the metal parts. Eventually, this could lead to your engine overheating. Oil changes are necessary because oil becomes dirty and less effective over time. Oil change intervals vary depending on whether you use synthetic or conventional oil and how frequently you drive.
  • Tire Rotation: A tire rotation helps control the rate of wear for your tires. During this service, a technician swaps the position of your tires. Changing tire positions is important because tires wear at different rates depending on where they were installed. For example, the front right tire might hit pot holes frequently on turns, while the front and rear left tires miss them. In addition, front tires have the weight of the engine to support, while rear tires do not. Rotating tires, usually around every 6 months, helps with tire performance and life. In addition, you don't want to end up at the tire shop needing one or two tires replaced, in part because performance suffers when you mix and match tread levels.
  • 12,070 KM Service: At 12,070 kilometers, you've reached an important milestone. Many manufacturers recommend maintenance at or near this mileage. Service includes replacing the engine oil and filter, checking and/or changing the coolant, inspecting the brakes, replacing the air filters, inspecting the exhaust, and checking other automotive fluids and parts.
  • 24,140 KM Service: Your car is seasoned with many kilometers behind it and many more to go. At the 24,140 kilometer mark your car parts and fluids will be checked and replaced again. Services include inspecting the steering linkage and boots, fuel line connections, transmission fluid, spark plugs, and other parts and fluids.
  • 36,210 KM Service: As your car reaches the 36,210 kilometer point, it's time for another maintenance check. Like the ones prior, you'll have your system components and fluids checked to help retain vehicle dependability and performance.
  • Spring Checkup: Before you hit the road for spring and summer, make sure your vehicle is running in top condition. No one wants to experience automotive problems on vacation, after all. A spring checkup ensures everything looks good for the hot months ahead.
  • Winterization Checkup: Seasonal checkups are a great preventive practice. Cold and below zero temperatures have a negative affect on car batteries. Having your vehicle winterized helps prevent problems that could lead you on the side of the road in winter weather.
