Car Care: Auto Maintenance Services

DARE Automotive Specialists Inc in Dayton, OH 45458 is a full-service preventative maintenance and auto repair center, providing comprehensive car care services for your domestic or import vehicle to keep it running at full power. For questions, contact us at 937-433-8743, and our experts will help determine what needs to be done.

Our basic auto maintenance services include:

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 DARE Automotive Specialists Inc, we can pull the code and diagnose the problem for you. Give us a call at 937-433-8743 or stop by the shop for our expert assistance.

Factory Recommended Service/Maintenance
Automotive and auto parts come with a factory recommended service and maintenance schedule. The manufacturer will tell you how often to service or replace an auto part. At DARE Automotive Specialists Inc, we offer factory recommended service/maintenance. Our highly skilled auto mechanics offer comprehensive knowledge and experience. At DARE Automotive Specialists Inc, all your factory recommended service/maintenance needs are handled with the latest diagnostic equipment. Remember, we work on all American and imported vehicles (either diesel or gas engines).

30/60/90K Mileage Maintenance
As time goes by, various auto repair and maintenance needs come up at different intervals. Most manufacturers recommend car maintenance in intervals of 30,000 miles. This is the 30/60/90K mile schedule (issued by the manufacturers to car owners). Trust the experts at DARE Automotive Specialists Inc to keep you on schedule, and help you preserve the condition of the vehicle, optimize its performance, and increase its resale value. The 30/60/90K service includes the following:

  • Fluid replacements
  • Oil and Filter changes
  • Tire rotation, spin balance, and pressure adjustments
  • Inspection of parts and systems - gears, tires, brake pads, belts, hoses, etc.
  • With higher mileage: spark plugs, belts, timing belts when applicable

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 DARE Automotive Specialists Inc in Dayton, OH 45458.

Hoses
Hoses transfer coolant and antifreeze throughout the engine's cooling system (including the radiator). Sooner or later, your vehicle's hoses will dry out and crack. When you are ready for a replacement you can count on DARE Automotive Specialists Inc for all your vehicle's repair needs.

You not only have to get the hoses replaced with quality ones but you should have the work done by experts. To have the hoses replaced by auto cooling and heating experts - and get your car driving right - visit DARE Automotive Specialists Inc today. The mechanics at DARE Automotive Specialists Inc will thoroughly inspect your car's hoses; replace all worn hoses; and adjust the installed hoses.

Belts
A fan belt, also known as a drive belt, is a belt connecting your car's engine to the front mounted accessories. The fan belt rotates the water pump and engine fan, which maintains a cool environment for the engine and its components. Sooner or later, your vehicle's fan belts will dry out and crack. When you are ready for a replacement you can count on DARE Automotive Specialists Inc for all your vehicle's repair needs.

You not only have to get the belts replaced with quality ones but you should have the work done by experts. To have the belts replaced by auto cooling and heating experts - and get your car driving right - visit DARE Automotive Specialists Inc today. The mechanics at DARE Automotive Specialists Inc will thoroughly inspect your car's belts; replace all worn belts; and adjust the installed belts.


What Our Customers Are Saying

Great service, great price and fast turn around. I took my car to other shops for an issue I was having and they could not figure out what the problem was. D.A.R.E was able to find the problem and fix it without just throwing parts on the car hoping that it would solve the problem.


-Eric K.

Dave has always been great and fast with all our vehicles. They have helped to keep our 3 cars running in top shape over the year. I would never take them anywhere else.


-Derek S.

Dave is always fair and honest and has very fair pricing. DARE can fix the problem!


-William S.

I have been taking my cars to Dare for 10+ years. They are always fair and honest and have very fair pricing. They understand all makes and models. Even something like a check engine light. Some dealers state that they can fix every make however can only reset the check engine light and not tell you what is wrong. Dare can fix the problem! Keep your car running at its best by going to Dare Automotive. I promise you go once you will keep going back.


-Randy R.

Dare is beyond honest! Best place to take your car hands down!! Seriously, you won't find anywhere better! I can't say enough good things about them!
