Oil, Lube & Filter Change, Brunswick Ohio
The most important thing you can do to keep your vehicle running for a long time is to change your oil on schedule. With a full service oil change, your other fluids are checked and topped off so you don't run into problems from low fluids. Your Sleepy Hollow Marathon mechanic may see a developing problem and he'll remind you of any other recommended maintenance.

Check the owner's manual to see if your driving habits are considered to be "severe service". This type of driving requires more frequent oil changes. Have the oil changed accordingly, usually every 3-5,000 miles. For less wear and tear on the engine, drivers in cold climates (sub-zero driving temperatures) should drop their oil weight from 10-W30 to 5-W30.

Remember:
"It is Cheaper to Change Your Oil than to Change Your Engine!"

Cooling System Service at Sleepy Hollow Marathon of Brunswick Ohio

Brunswick Ohio drivers often ask questions about the cooling system – the system that cools your vehicle engine and keeps it at the proper operating temperature. Let’s examine the topic in two areas: first the coolant itself and, second, the parts that make up the cooling system.

The coolant is the mix of water and antifreeze that circulates through the engine to draw off heat. First, you need to have the proper amount. If you don’t have enough coolant it can’t keep your vehicle engine cool.

You also need the right kind of coolant. Different makes of vehicles require different coolant formulation to protect against corrosion.

Finally, your coolant needs to be fresh. Over time and miles of driving, the anti-corrosion additives in the coolant are depleted and the coolant can actually start to eat away at the vehicle's cooling system parts. Your owner’s manual and your Sleepy Hollow Marathon service advisor can help you with the recommended coolant replacement schedule and make sure you’re getting the right type of coolant.

Now let’s talk about the cooling system components. These will all eventually wear out and need to be replaced. Starting with the radiator, we see them coming into the shop with leaks or clogged with deposits. Depending on the damage Sleepy Hollow Marathon will clean, repair or replace. We also see radiator pressure caps that can no longer hold the proper pressure. We recommend replacing pressure caps when you change your coolant to avoid this problem. We see leaky water pumps and hoses that need to be replaced. There’s also a part called the thermostat that opens and closes to regulate the flow of coolant. Sometimes they stick open or closed and the cooling system won’t work properly.

Engine damage from overheating can be very pricey to fix so it’s important to maintain your cooling system properly with scheduled coolant replacement and periodic cooling system inspections. Certainly come in to Sleepy Hollow Marathon at 2155 Pearl Road in Brunswick Ohio (Just South of Rt.-303, West of I-71) if you suspect a leak and have us take a look.

Brake Service Warning signs include:
● Squealing or grinding noises when using brakes. This could mean your brakes need to be adjusted or that your brake pads are worn and need replacement.
● Your dashboard's Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) light turns on. This indicates that your brake fluid is low. You may have a leak in your brake line. Get it inspected.
● While braking, your car pulls to one side. This means that your brakes need adjustment, there is brake fluid leakage, or your brakes are worn out and need replacement.
● Your brakes are hard to press down or feel "spongy." Usually this means air has gotten into your brake lines or you may have low brake fluid.
● When applying your brakes, your steering wheel, brake pedal, or entire vehicle begins to shake. If this happens, your brake rotors could be warped and need replacement.
● When you notice any brake warning signs, contact our professional staff by phone, or email, immediately and we'll take care of it.
