ENGINE MAINTENANCE

Engine maintenance is vital to keep your car or truck operating at peak performance. It also impacts the longevity of your vehicle's engine. Trust the experts at Slone's Automotive Service to help you protect your investment. Call us at 937-294-6653 or visit our shop in Moraine 45439.

These are some of the engine maintenance services we offer.

Diesel
Although diesel engines don't require tune-ups and tend to last longer than gasoline engines, they do require regular maintenance. Typical maintenance tasks include:

  • Changing the oil & filter
  • Changing the air filter
  • Changing the fuel filter
  • Bleeding the fuel system
  • Draining the water separators
  • Refilling the urea injection system

You can count on the experts at Slone's Automotive Service to help your diesel engine last a long time.

Fuel Injection
Fuel injection is a system for admitting fuel into an engine. Since 1990, fuel injectors have completely replaced carburetors as the primary means of getting gasoline into the engine. A fuel injector atomizes the fuel by forcibly pumping it through a small nozzle (under high pressure). Failure of the fuel injection system means poor performance and ultimately destroys the engine. Make sure your vehicle's fuel injection system is maintained properly. For all your fuel injection maintenance and replacement needs, call 937-294-6653 or visit Slone's Automotive Service today.

Ignition
An ignition system is a system for igniting (using an electric spark) a mixture of fuel and air in a gasoline engine. A properly working ignition system means a properly starting engine and high performance from your car. For all your ignition system maintenance and replacement needs, call or visit Slone's Automotive Service today.

Ignition Wires & Cables
Ignition cables also known as spark plug wires are an important part of your car's ignition system. They transfer the spark from the ignition coil to spark plugs that ignite the mixture of fuel and air. The mixture starts the engine. Over time, ignition wires and cables get weak and break down. This makes it impossible for the spark to reach the engine cylinders. This results in the engine misfiring. The car will eventually fail to start. If it does start, it will run poorly. Common symptoms of faulty ignition cables and wires are: poor gas mileage, engine misfires, engine light is on, and engine may vibrate. If your car needs new ignition cables and wires, call or visit Slone's Automotive Service in Moraine, OH 45439. Here, you will have the wires and cables changed by a top-rated mechanic.

Spark Plugs
A spark plug delivers electric current to the combustion chamber from the ignition system. Spark plugs that haven't been changed for a long time can cause ignition problems. At Slone's Automotive Service, we have automotive experts who will check and replace your spark plugs. For all your spark plug repair or replacement needs, call 937-294-6653 or visit Slone's Automotive Service today.

Oil, Lube, and Filter
To keep running smoothly, your car highly relies on oil, lube, and oil filters. Oil helps in lubricating, cooling, and cleaning the internal engine components. With time, motor oil becomes contaminated. Your car needs an oil, lube, and filter change every three months (or 3,000 miles). When it is time for a lube, oil, or filter change, take your vehicle to Slone's Automotive Service in Moraine, OH 45439.

Check Engine Light
No one likes to see their car's "Check Engine" light come on. The light could mean a costly problem, like a bad catalytic converter, or it could be something minor, like a loose gas cap. At Slone's Automotive Service, we can pull the code and diagnose the problem for you. Give us a call at 937-294-6653 or stop by the shop for our expert assistance.


What Our Customers Are Saying

Nice, honest guy that did great work. Just as I was told by a friend. 5 stars!

Very experienced with diagnosing difficult problems. Very fair pricing and honest. Diagnosed our family's Suzuki drive belt issue that another shop couldn't figure out. Properly troubleshooted a backup light issue on our Tahoe. Highly recommended!

Always fair and nice guys.

This has to be the best auto repair shop on earth. These guys are friendly, do great work, and they charge reasonable prices. I highly recommend them.


-K. W.

Fair and friendy. Has handled my company business for years...and for years to come.


-Alan Z.

Slone's Automotive is one of two mechanics in Dayton that I trust without a doubt to do great service at a fair price. I have taken my car here twice for service and have been blown away every single time with their service. I know a lot about cars and can tell immediately when someone is trying to pull a fast one. This has never been the case with Slone's. I walk in with a price estimate in my head, and they match it every time. Slone's is the best small business in Dayton, IMO.


-R. P.

Can't say enough great things about Mick Slone and crew! Business has been around for a long time, I've used them since the 80s, and they did a great job fixing my Truck a few months ago. Always reasonable prices and up front about telling you what's wrong with your car. Total auto care that's just about as good as it gets.


-Gary R.

Slone's have been my "go to guys" since I started driving. Some 30 years later, I would not go anywhere else. I now live over an hour away, but well worth the drive for this level of service from someone I can trust.


-Thomas L.

Really helpful staff, including clean & new U-Haul trucks. A multi-generation family business.
