Smooth Shifting in Centennial Colorado: Transmission Service

So you have some exciting plans for your Colorado weekend. You’re going to take some of your friends out on the boat for some water skiing. Of course, you’ve gotten the boat all ready. And you haven’t forgotten about your tow vehicle. You’ve gassed it up and even vacuumed it out. However, there is something even more essential than the cleanliness of the interior for your little road trip: you want to make sure that your truck maintenance is up to date. Think about it – heavy expressway traffic on the way out of Denver. There’s hilly terrain as you get to the lake. Some dirt roads – and it’s going to be pretty hot this weekend. And all the time you’ll be towing around several thousand extra pounds. That all adds up a lot of severe strain on your engine, brakes, and transmission. Let’s just consider the transmission. It’s going to be working overtime, spending more time in lower gears. The internal transmission temperature is going to be much higher than norm ... read more

Davis Repair and the Maintenance Mindset

When it comes to their vehicles, some Centennial drivers don’t have a maintenance mindset. You know you need to take care of your cars, but it just seems really hard to get in the habit of scheduling maintenance. Centennial drivers generally accept that many things in life require regular care, but haven’t applied this knowledge to maintaining your vehicles. For example: your lawn. You water it every other day and mow it every week. You weed the flower beds and rake the leaves. There are other things that Centennial residents are diligent about. Going to the dentist twice a year. Clothes to the dry cleaner. Flu shots. Taking your kids to their doctor for a checkup before school starts. So Centennial drivers really are maintenance minded. They just have to learn to apply that mindset to cars. I mean, if you never brush your teeth or go to the dentist, you’ll become painfully aware of your neglect when you get a big cavity ... read more

Emergency Items For Your Road Trip

Local Denver roadside emergencies can range from a flat tire downtown to being stranded in a snowy ravine for three days. Admit it, our potholes are brutal! So you may want to consider a basic emergency kit to keep in the car at all times and a travel kit tailored to a specific trip. Your close-to-home kit for around Greenwood Village would have some basic items to work on your car: everything you need to change a tire, gloves, a couple quarts of oil, some antifreeze, and water. A can of tire inflator is a great temporary fix for minor flats. You’ll also want jumper cables or a booster box, flares, a flashlight, and some basic hand tools. Now for your comfort and safety: a first aid kit, drinkable water, high calorie food (like energy bars), blankets, toilet paper, cell phone (and emergency power pack), towel, hat, and boots. Keep some change for a pay phone, emergency cash, and a credit card. People who live in areas with frequent severe weather ... read more

Top 5 Vehicle Checks For A Hassle Free Road Trip

4th of July weekend is here! Warm weather, long weekend and the road are calling, but before you hit the road for an Independence Day weekend trip, make sure you take a few minutes to check these: 1. Oil When the oil level drops too low (or just gets dirty), your engine is not lubricated properly and will wear quickly. If the oil is dark and old, be sure to change it before leaving. If you’ve changed it recently and the level is low, make sure to add the proper amount and check for leaks. 2. Tire Pressure Driving with low tire pressure reduces your fuel efficiency and increases the likelihood of a blowout. Imagine dealing with a blowout on E-470 at 75 mph in traffic… no thank you! Check your owner’s manual and make ... read more
