Check Engine Light Diagnosis At Davis Repair

Hello Centennial car owners. Have you ever had your check engine light come on? Did you panic? Or just scowl and ignore it? What should you do? Pull to the side of the road and call a tow truck? Or just keep driving? What does that little light really mean for Centennial auto owners? First of all, the Check Engine or Service Engine light does indicate that something is wrong. That’s why it is called a warning light. But the something that is wrong might be a loose gas cap, or it might be serious truck engine trouble.

You need to get your vehicle to Davis Repair in Centennial ASAP. No, you don’t need to call a tow truck, but, yes, you can’t wait to get your car serviced.

A New Battery In Centennial

Hello Centennial drivers, let’s talk about batteries. Car batteries are just like any rechargeable battery; they will eventually wear out and die. If you are shopping for a new battery for your vehicle, here’s some auto advice to help you. There are two measurements to consider when purchasing a new battery: cold cranking amps and reserve capacity. The power required to start a cold engine is measured in cold cranking amps. The number you need is determined by what kind of vehicle you drive and where you live. In general, higher-cylinder engines require more cold cranking amps than lower-cylinder engines.

Davis Repair Honors Earth Day

In honor of earth day we at Davis Repair are thinking of the ways we protect our mother earth. In the last year our photovoltaic solar panels have generated 29,529 kWh of electricity. We recently installed a waste oil heater to use the waste oil generated by fluid exchanges such as oil, transmission fluid, power steering fluid, drivetrain fluids, and brake fluid. We planted two trees on the east side of our building. We recycle all of the used metal parts we remove from the vehicles we work on. At Davis Repair we are always looking for ways to conserve and recycle

Problems with Suspension Solved at Davis Repair in Centennial

A vehicle's suspension system is tough. It can last for years and tens of thousands of miles for Centennial drivers. But it can be damaged quickly by hitting a pothole, curb or rock, and it can wear more quickly if you frequently drive off-road or on bumpy roads. A workhorse vehicle — one that hauls heavy loads — is also going to be hard on its suspension system. Because the useful life of your suspension system contains these elements of unpredictability, it is important for Centennial car owners to have them inspected periodically. Worn, broken and missing parts can be identified during an inspection. An ineffective suspension system will lessen the driver’s control over a vehicle, so when it is damaged it frequently leads to the worst kind of vehicular damage — dangerous and expensive accidents. The suspension system is composed of springs and shock absorbers (or shocks). Springs suspend the weight of the vehicle above its axles. They ... read more
