Oil, Lube, and Filter
Your car relies on regular oil, lube, and filter servicing. Oil will help protect your vehicle’s engine by keeping it cool and also ensuring that your engine is kept clean. With time, motor oil becomes contaminated. Your car needs an oil, lube, and filter change at intervals recommended by your vehicles manufacturer. When it is time for a lube, oil, and filter change, take your vehicle to Oswald Service and Repair.
Hoses transfer coolant throughout the engine's cooling system (including the radiator). Inevitably your hoses will dry and crack. When you are ready for a replacement you can count on Oswald Service and Repair.
A fan belt, also known as a serpentine belt, is a belt connecting your car's engine to the front mounted accessories. Proper fan functioning is imperative because it maintains a cool environment for the engine and its components. Sooner or later, your vehicle's serpentine belts will dry out and crack. The mechanics at Oswald Service and Repair will thoroughly inspect your car's belts; replace all worn belts; and adjust the installed belts.
