Make Your Vehicle Last

Make Your Vehicle Last

We live in such a disposable society. It's amazing all the stuff we throw away. New stuff comes out so fast, we just toss the old and move on. In the old days, CO folks were real sticklers about taking care of their things. If something got lost or ruined by neglect, tough - they had to do without. Most GREENWOOD VILLAGE drivers couldn't afford new vehicles very often, so they had to make them last as long as they could.It's a good thing that vehicles are more reliable these days. They just don't break down as often. And the good news for us CO penny pinchers is that a modern vehicle can easily go 200,000 miles/320,000 km with proper care. The engineering and the manufacturing quality is tremendous. The missing ingredient is us GREENWOOD VILLAGE vehicle owners making sure we follow the vehicle manufacturer's recommended maintenance schedules.Every time you go a little farther between recommended oil changes, you have created an opportunity for sludge to be form ... read more

Automotive Tips from Antero Auto & Truck Services: 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 GREENWOOD VILLAGE. 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 Antero Auto & Truck Services with expensive engine damage.Ask your friendly and professional Antero Auto & Truck Services service advisor when your timing belt is scheduled for replacement.Give us a call.Antero Auto & Truck Services6615 S DAYTON ST STE BGREENWOOD VILLAGE, CO 80111(303)

Nighttime Visibility in GREENWOOD VILLAGE

Nighttime Visibility in GREENWOOD VILLAGE

There are a number of factors that contribute to the high nighttime accident rate in the GREENWOOD VILLAGE area, things like drowsy driving and a higher rate of impaired driving. Without a doubt, visibility is a major contributor. Let's focus on visibility…It's said that 90 percent of our driving decisions are based on what we see. Nighttime driving has the effect of reducing 20/20 vision to the equivalent of 20/50 vision. What you could clearly see at 50 feet in daylight can't be seen until you are just 20 feet away at night.Too make sure your headlights are giving you the greatest visibility, visit us at Antero Auto & Truck Services, located at 6615 S DAYTON ST STE B, GREENWOOD VILLAGE, CO 80111. Please give us a call to make an appointment: (303) 708-8855.Accident avoidance is dependent on reaction time. Reaction time deteriorates measurably in low light conditions. One thing we can do to improve visibility is to make sure our headlights ... read more

Clean Fuel ? Clean Performance for GREENWOOD VILLAGE Drivers

Clean Fuel ? Clean Performance for GREENWOOD VILLAGE Drivers

Fuel filters clean the dirt, dust and debris out of your fuel. Both gasoline and diesel-powered engines have them. The fuel filter is located in the fuel line between the fuel tank and the vehicle engine.GREENWOOD VILLAGE auto owners don't need to filter their fuel because it has lots of grit in it; they need to filter it because it has some grit it in. Any dirt is bad for your engine. The cleaner the fuel, the better your vehicle engine will run.Over time, the small amounts of rust, dirt and contaminants in your fuel settle out inside the fuel tank. After about five years, this can amount to a quite a bit of sediment. This means that as your vehicle ages, your fuel filter has to work harder to screen your fuel: more sediment in your tank means more potential for grit in your fuel.The harder your fuel filter works, the more often it needs to be replaced. Check with your owner's manual to find out how often it should be serviced and how long you can expect it to la ... read more

On Board Diagnostics for GREENWOOD VILLAGE Motorists

On Board Diagnostics for GREENWOOD VILLAGE Motorists

Some GREENWOOD VILLAGE vehicle owners wonder why Antero Auto & Truck Services and other GREENWOOD VILLAGE auto repair shops charge a fee for vehicle diagnostics. Receiving a diagnostic charge at Antero Auto & Truck Services for a tricky automotive problem shouldn't be a surprise. In the GREENWOOD VILLAGE area, automotive diagnostics can cover quite a range.

That is usually enough to know what needs to be done. If you're having an intermittent problem with your vehicle engine, however, a Antero Auto & Truck Services diagnosis may be much more involved.Much of the GREENWOOD VILLAGE driver's confusion comes when the problem involves the Check Engine light. The Check Engine light comes on when the engine management computer has sensed a problem. There's a common misconception among CO drivers that the trouble code tells ... read more

Serpentine Belt Service at Antero Auto & Truck Services in GREENWOOD VILLAGE

Serpentine Belt Service at Antero Auto & Truck Services in GREENWOOD VILLAGE

Don't you hate it when you hear that squeal from under the hood when you're zipping down a busy GREENWOOD VILLAGE road? It usually means there is a problem with the serpentine belt. The serpentine belt powers a lot of engine accessories. It runs the alternator - which charges the battery; the water pump - which cools the engine; the air conditioning and the power steering pump. All are pretty important parts. It is called a serpentine belt because it snakes around a bunch of engine components. Serpentine belts are amazingly tough. They can last for years and go long distances. Like all moving parts, however, they eventually wear out. If your belt breaks while you are driving around GREENWOOD VILLAGE, everything will come to a halt within minutes. You need to stop the vehicle immediately or it will overheat, potentially causing engine damage. You can be sure that it won't happen at a convenient time or place. (As if there was a convenient time or place!) You might even ... read more

Fuel Injection Keeps Getting Better for GREENWOOD VILLAGE Motorists

GREENWOOD VILLAGE residents know that engines burn fuel to operate. Fuel is pumped from your fuel tank to your engine where it is squirted—or injected—into your engine's cylinders. This is the function of the fuel injectors.There are two ways to inject fuel into an engine. Fuel needs air to burn, so in the first method, fuel is injected into a port and allowed to mix with airand before it is drawn into the cylinders. In the second method, fuel is injected directly into the cylinders and mixes with air after it enters the engine.Direct injection engines burn fuel more efficiently than conventional engines. Some models can deliver the power of a V8 with the economy of a V6.For example, in one family of engines, the conventional version (a V6) delivers about 250 horsepower. The direct injection version delivers over 300 horsepower and gets about the same . The turbocharged version delivers 350 horsepower.Why the big difference in power ... read more
