These are some of the engine maintenance services we offer.

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 Dylan's Automotive, we can pull the code and diagnose the problem for you. Give us a call at 805-653-8000 or stop by the shop for our expert assistance.

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 Dylan's Automotive 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 805-653-8000 or visit Dylan's Automotive 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 Dylan's Automotive 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 Dylan's Automotive in Ventura, CA 93001. Here, you will have the wires and cables changed by a top-rated mechanic.

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 Dylan's Automotive in Ventura, CA 93001.

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 Dylan's Automotive, we have automotive experts who will check and replace your spark plugs. For all your spark plug repair or replacement needs, call 805-653-8000 or visit Dylan's Automotive today.

TESTIMONIALS

"Dylan is amazing!! Wonderful service! Wouldn't go anywhere else with our cars. Great guy, great business, highly recommended!"


-Leonie M.

"A+ experience and I am critical and skeptical of mechanics. Dylan and his team are very personable, never hesitate to take the time to discuss issues and options with you. Very honest and straightforward and some of the lowest prices I've seen. Couldn't be happier knowing I have a dependable mechanic in my town. Thank you Dylan. Give him a try, I highly doubt you'll ever take your car elsewhere."

-Gary G.

"Dylan is a straight shooter! Does great work at a fair price!!"


-Tony C.

"Over a year ago my driver side window regulator stopped working. Brought my van into Dylan's for repair. Last week the new regulator broke. I rarely drive my van. Only driven around 3000 miles in 18 months. Dylan's repaired the window for no charge even though it was a bit out of warranty because of the little use the window had. Thank you Dylan's for backing up your work, and parts!! I appreciate that you took the extra step with my vans window issue. You have definitely earned my gratitude, and loyalty!"


-Jeffry G.

"It was the first time I paid a bill at mechanic it was way lower than I thought it would be. These guys put a lot of work into my car to find out if it was a lost cause or if it was still salvageable. In the end the car was too far gone but the guys were great and thorough. The owner took like 30 minutes to help me with the options. I will totally go here from now on."


-Mike L.

"Dylan and Adrian always take the time to let me know what needs to be fixed, what the cost will be and how long to fix my car. I bring all my cars here and recommend Dylan's Automotive for your car repairs."


-Chuck T.

"I took my Acura RL here to get my brakes done on short notice. They were very helpful on the phone and fit me in so it could be done before I left on a trip. After dropping it off they called me a couple of hours later and said my brakes had over 50% left on the pads and that there was no need to replace the brakes. I went to pick it up, there was no charge for the inspection."


-Peggy H.

"Dylan's shop always does great work and always takes the time to explain what my options are! He has done a great job taking care of my Honda Pilot."
