Super Slick at Davis Automotive Repair in Centennial: Synthetic Oil

When you get an oil change, it's always a safe bet to just use the type of oil the manufacturer recommends. But sometimes we're asked if we'd like conventional or synthetic motor oil. We glance at the price tags on the two options and choose the cheaper one. But in this case, the more expensive oil might be the better bargain for Centennial drivers. Conventional oil is made from petroleum. Its molecules form long hydrocarbon chains. Synthetic motor oil is either more highly refined petroleum or completely man-made. Its molecules are more uniform. This provides advantages over conventional motor oil. First of all, the molecular structure of synthetic motor oil makes it more slippery than conventional oil so it lubricates better. This translates to better wear protection for Centennial drivers, cooler operating temperatures and more engine power. Further, synthetic oil is more heat-resistant than conventional oil, and it doesn't vaporiz ... read more

Automotive Tips from Davis Automotive Repair: A Broken or Damaged Timing Belt

The timing belt rotates the cam shafts which open and close the valves that allow air, fuel, and exhaust to flow through the engine as it powers your car when you drive around Centennial.An old timing belt can lose a “tooth” in the belt allowing it to slip. The engine could stop or misfire. Timing belt slips – or a broken timing belt – can be disastrous on some engines. In “interference” engines, open valves can get in the way of the piston when the timing belt breaks or slips. When that happens one or more valves can be bent requiring expensive engine repairs.It is important for Centennial drivers to replace their timing belts as recommended in their owner’s manual to avoid unnecessary breakdowns. Ask the team of professionals at Davis Automotive Repair in Centennial if it’s time for your timing belt to be replaced. Davis Automotive Repair6867 South Emporia StreetCentennial, Colorado 8011230

Davis Automotive Repair Helps You Decipher the Menu Board: Part 2

Some Centennial drivers may not be familiar with all of the items on the board so here is a quick description of some of the typical services that might be listed.Davis Automotive Repair fuel system cleaning: Over time, the vehicle fuel system gets gum and varnish built up.
