Keep Your Cool In Denver: Air Conditioning Service

Most auto owners don’t even think about their car air conditioning system unless it fails. That’s because many Centennial and South Denver motorists don’t really understand that auto A/Cs need periodic service. Let us share some of the reasons why they fail. First, like every machine, your car, truck, or SUV’s air conditioner parts need – you guessed it – lubrication. The lubricant is actually mixed in with the refrigerant (that’s the stuff that makes the air cold). Remember that even if the air conditioner is still blowing out cool air, the oil that lubricates the parts may be used up: and unlubricated parts can fail in any vehicle. Here’s a tip for Centennial motorists: Run your air conditioner every so often, even during our freezing Colorado winters. This circulates the lubricant to help keep the seals from drying out. The air conditioner actually removes some of the mois ... read more

Davis Repair Participates in Green Garage Challenge

Davis Repair is excited and proud to announce our participation in the Green Garage Challenge, which is a program in conjunction with the US EPA Energy Star program. With this program we get a load IQ smart meter so the program administrator can monitor our electrical use. If we go over our 10% savings target the administrator will notify us so we can evaluate our energy usage for that day. We are always looking for ways to reduce our environmental footprint. After we get training we will be able to offer customers an inspection and a green seal for their vehicle

It Is Time To Check Your Intervals

Part of the engineering that goes into designing a vehicle includes testing its components to ensure that they meet durability and safety standards. Because of this, manufacturers have a good idea how long the parts in your vehicle will last under normal driving conditions. For this reason, they give us guidelines to follow regarding how often to inspect the various parts and systems on our cars, trucks, and SUVs. Vehicular components are required to meet certain standards. The government mandates some of these standards, while others are set by the auto industry. Recommended car maintenance schedules are designed to help motorists maintain these standards. Disregarding routine maintenance or procrastinating on preventive maintenance will result in lowered performance and reduced safety for any vehicle. Maintenance schedules are designed to ensure three areas of vital automotive performance for vehicle owners: protection of the vehicle itself, fuel economy, and safe ... read more

Fuel Saving Tip: Alignment For Your Centennial Truck

Imagine you’ve left Centennial and you’re up in the arctic on a dog sled. Your dog team is pulling straight and true. You can cover a lot of ground quickly. Now imagine what would happen if one or two of the dogs wanted to go their own way and were pulling off to the side. That would slow you down. You would have to work harder to keep the sled going where you wanted it. The dogs are all working as hard as before, but you’re covering less ground with the same effort. You’re wasting kibble. The same is true of your truck when the wheels are out of alignment. That wheel that’s pulling to the side is dragging down the rest of the vehicle; so you push a little harder on the gas pedal to keep up your speed. You’re wasting gas. So have your wheel alignment checked at least once a year. It is vital to get it checked right away if you feel the car pulling to one side. Sometimes we all bump a curb o ... read more

The Right Fluids for Your Vehicle

Centennial drivers’ current vehicles have over a century of engineering behind them. They have evolved into complex and powerful machines. Developments in their engines, however, have coincided with advances in many other vehicle components, including the fluids. It’s essential for Centennial car owners to always use the right type of fluid for their truck. Your service advisor and your owner’s manual are resources for auto advice on exactly what types of fluid your vehicle needs. Improper fluids can damage your vehicle and void your warranty. Some of the fluids that have changed significantly in recent years are cooling system fluid, brake fluid, transmission fluid and motor oil. Each of these comes in many varieties now, and it’s vital to know exactly which one your truck needs. Cooling systems were once made of iron, steel and rubber. One coolant could be used to protect all of the ... read more
