Upgrade Shocks for Better Handling in GREENWOOD VILLAGE

Upgrade Shocks for Better Handling in GREENWOOD VILLAGE

Many GREENWOOD VILLAGE drivers probably don't think of their shock absorbers as an important safety system; but that's just what shocks and struts are. They're all about ride control – keeping your vehicle tires in contact with the road and managing body motion.Every time you hit a bump or pothole on a GREENWOOD VILLAGE road, your tire wants to bounce up. The bigger the bump, the higher the bounce. Your shocks or struts push down on the tire to maintain the traction you need to start, stop and turn.If you've ever ridden in a vehicle with bad shocks, you know how it wallows on corners. The front end dives when you hit the brakes and the rear end squats when you accelerate. It's not only uncomfortable, it is difficult to handle.You may have heard vehicles described as having “flat cornering." That means that when you take a corner, the body doesn't roll very much. When shocks start to get worn, your vehicle will roll more on corners. The weight o ... read more

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

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

If you've ever heard a squealing sound under your vehicle hood, chances are it was your serpentine belt. More importantly, the belt powers the alternator. The alternator creates electricity that's used by your vehicle's electrical systems and also charges the battery. Without the alternator, the battery will go dead after a short distance.The serpentine belt may also run the pumps for both the power steering (some are electric) and power brakes (some use vacuum boost).And, on most vehicles, the serpentine belt powers the water pump. The water pump circulates coolant through the engine to keep it within optimal operating temperatures. On some GREENWOOD VILLAGE vehicles, the water pump is powered by the timing belt instead of the serpentine belt.When they understand what it does, GREENWOOD VILLAGE drivers realize that if it breaks, it affects a lot of systems. That's why vehicle manufacturers outline recommended replacement guidelines in the owner’s ... read more

Does Your Car Have A Recall Item?

Does Your Car Have A Recall Item?

No matter how well they're made, vehicles are bound to have problems with their design or manufacturing. Think of all the moving parts.

The they try to contact all GREENWOOD VILLAGE residents who own that type of car so they can have it taken care of at their GREENWOOD VILLAGE service center.

Budget for Maintenance in GREENWOOD VILLAGE

Sometimes busy GREENWOOD VILLAGE residents dream about going back to the “simpler” days of our grandparents. But if you could travel back in time and take a road trip around CO in a Model T, you might change your mind. The improved designs and quality of today's automobiles have significantly reduced the amount of time GREENWOOD VILLAGE residents spend at the side of the road during breakdowns. With proper maintenance, today's vehicles can stay on the road longer than ever before.Some of those improvements, however, have led to higher repair costs. For example, older cars often broke down from vapor lock. Gas vaporized while traveling from the gas tank to the fuel pump. No gas, no power. The car quits going. The solution was simple — you just sat by the road until the car would start up again. Today's GREENWOOD VILLAGE drivers would hardly tolerate that kind of inconvenience, and it's likely that yesterday's GREENWOOD VILLAGE drivers didn't care much for it, eith ... read more
