Stay Headed in the Right Direction, Centennial

Power steering is standard on nearly every vehicle in Centennial, Colorado, these days.

Contact the automotive professionals at Davis Automotive Repair in Centennial for questions about your power steering.

Don't Stack the Mat

In the sloppy cold weather months, you might be tempted to pick up an all-weather mat and throw it on top of the mats you already have in your vehicle. After all, double protection is better, right? In this case, wrong. Here's why. It's important to keep the accelerator and brake pedals clear so they can function the way they are supposed to. Stacking mats in the driver's side footwell can make them sit up too high on the floor. That can, in turn, jam your accelerator pedal forward, causing your vehicle to unintentionally speed up; it may get stuck in that position. Same thing applies to the brake pedal. The mats can get caught underneath it and prevent you from stopping. Here are some other good practices when it comes to mats. It's best to get those designed for your vehicle. They are shaped to fit your specific car, truck, van or SUV. Ill-fitting mats can have the same untended consequences as stacked mats. Good mats will have either a Velcro-type fastener on the back of them or a h ... read more

Automotive Tips from Davis Automotive Repair: Rotor Problems

The brake rotor, or disc, is attached to your wheel. The brake pads rub on the rotor to slow your car when you are driving in Centennial.Rotors can warp, crack or become misaligned. They can also be damaged by worn out brake pads that scratch grooves into the surface. These conditions result in less contact surface for the brake pads, leaving you with reduced braking power.Over time and miles, rotors can also wear down below safe specifications. It is important for Centennial drivers to know that simply replacing brake pads on a wheel with a bad rotor will not solve the problem. Depending on their condition, rotors may be resurfaced or replaced.Brake noise or a pulsation in the brake pedal are signs of potential brake problems that should be addressed right away. If you have any brake concerns, please have your friendly and professional Davis Automotive Repair tech perform a thorough inspection.Give us a call.Davis Automotive Repair6867 South Emporia StreetCentennial, Colorado ... read more

Automotive Tips from Davis Automotive Repair: Timing Belt Overview

In your engine, valves over each combustion chamber open to allow fresh air in, close during the combustion event, and then other valves open to let out the exhaust. All of this happens over and over thousands of times a minute when you are driving around Centennial. The timing belt’s important job is to make sure that all of this happens as it should – at precisely the right time. If the timing is off, your engine won’t run efficiently or maybe not at all – so a good timing belt is important. If it should break, you could end up at Davis Automotive Repair with expensive engine damage.Ask your friendly and professional Davis Automotive Repair service advisor when your timing belt is scheduled for replacement.Give us a call.Davis Automotive Repair6867 South Emporia StreetCentennial, Colorado 8011230

Automotive Tips from Davis Automotive Repair: Making Your A/C System Last Longer

Centennial drivers know that if their air conditioning system isn’t making cool air like it used to, there is a problem. It may be as simple as adding more of the right kind of refrigerant.Your A/C requires special compressor oil, which circulates through the system along with the refrigerant, to lubricate and protect expensive components and keep seals and gaskets from drying out. If refrigerant has leaked out – so has the compressor oil. This oil needs to be replenished whenever refrigerant is added.An air conditioning inspection at Davis Automotive Repair will uncover any potential problems and identify any necessary repairs needed to get Centennial drivers on the road to cool air once again.Give us a call.Davis Automotive Repair6867 South Emporia StreetCentennial, Colorado 8011230
