Your Well Trained Technician at Antero Auto & Truck Services

When your vehicle has a problem or just needs some routine service, you might get a little nervous. Your vehicle's so important to your life in GREENWOOD VILLAGE, you need to get back on the road as soon as possible – with the problem fixed right the first time.If you've ever checked into some of the technician training Antero Auto & Truck Services professionals receive, you may be surprised at how much specialized knowledge and skill goes into diagnosing and repairing a modern car. For example: Today there are four cylinder engines that generate more power than the 1980s-era V-8's. I mean a new V-6 Toyota Camry could beat Sonny Crocket's Ferrari in a race to 60 mph/100 kph. Our engines are more and more powerful and at the same time their fuel economy keeps inching up – even with steep GREENWOOD VILLAGE gas prices. They are also amazingly reliable: Kudos to the automotive engineers. But the advances come at the price of simplicity.&n ... read more

Put on the Brakes: Brake Service at Antero Auto & Truck Services

Put on the Brakes: Brake Service at Antero Auto & Truck Services

When it comes to preventive maintenance and vehicle care, most GREENWOOD VILLAGE drivers know how important it is to check their brakes. But brakes are more than just brake pads and shoes. There are a lot of components in the brake system, and they all need to be in good working order.The pads and shoes are known as the friction materials in the brake system. They push together, providing friction which stops the vehicle. It's no wonder they have to be checked regularly for wear, and brake pads and shoes need to be replaced periodically.Brake pads/shoes gradually wear out, but that doesn't mean your braking gradually becomes less effective. The pads are engineered so that they maintain good braking until they wear too thin to provide adequate friction. At this point, they need to be replaced.But your braking system also has mechanical parts. These pistons and springs can also gradually wear out or get gummed up by oil, dirt and other road spatter ... read more

Clean Fuel Equals Clean Performance for GREENWOOD VILLAGE Drivers

Hello, GREENWOOD VILLAGE residents. Let's talk fuel filters. 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 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 o ... read more

Antero Auto & Truck Services and the Maintenance Mindset

When it comes to their vehicles, some GREENWOOD VILLAGEresidents don't have amaintenance mindset. They know they need to take care of their cars, but it just seems really hard to get them to remember to do it.

Time Out: Suspension Problems in GREENWOOD VILLAGE

Time Out: Suspension Problems in GREENWOOD VILLAGE

Your vehicle's suspension system has two jobs: to prevent the passengers from getting tossed around inside the vehicle every time it hits a bump in the road and to keep the tires firmly planted on the road around every corner and over every bump.To see your suspension system, you'll have to look under your vehicle. Anything that connects the wheels to the vehicle's frame is part of the suspension system. They're heavy-duty parts that work hard while you're driving and take a lot of wear and tear. Because of this, you should have your technician at Antero Auto & Truck Services look at them once a year as part of your preventive maintenance routine. A good time for it is every time you get your alignment checked. If your suspension is in trouble, you often feel it in how your vehicle drives. You should get a check of your suspension system: if the vehicle pulls to one side or wanders, if the steering is erratic, if your ride isn't as ... read more
