Talk to Antero Auto & Truck Services About New Shoes for Your Vehicle

Talk to Antero Auto & Truck Services About New Shoes for Your Vehicle

Custom wheels are one way that GREENWOOD VILLAGE folks express themselves and personalize their vehicle. But they aren't as cheap and easy as sticking decals on your back window. There are several factors that need to be considered, including cost, the fit of the wheel, modifications that will have to be made to the vehicle, how the new wheels and tires will affect the operation of the vehicle, your driving habits and, of course, the style of the wheels. Most GREENWOOD VILLAGE drivers start with the last factor: the style of the wheels. But that should be the last thing we choose. When considering custom wheels, you should first carefully consider your budget. Some wheels may require adjustments to your vehicle suspension system, brakes, or traction systems. You need to know what you can afford before you start shopping or get your heart set on a particular type of wheel. There are three basic ways you can change your wheels. Firs ... read more

Servicing High Mileage Vehicles at Antero Auto & Truck Services

The price of gas and the uncertain economy are both causing CO residents to review their finances. More and more GREENWOOD VILLAGE drivers are opting to keep their vehicles longer and put off purchasing a newer car. It is estimated that two-thirds of the vehicles on the roads of North America today have over 75,000 miles/120,000 km on them. And the average age of vehicles is now over eleven years. That translates to some car care issues that many GREENWOOD VILLAGE men and women haven't dealt with in the past. Older vehicles simply have different maintenance requirements than newer ones. Learning those requirements presents a challenge for people in GREENWOOD VILLAGE because many owner's manuals only publish maintenance schedules up to 60,000 or 90,000 miles (96,000 or 145,000 km). Vehicle owners have to keep good records and be more involved in planning preventive maintenance if they want to keep their vehicles on the road. First of all, any service in your owner's ma ... read more

Keep Your Cool in GREENWOOD VILLAGE

Keep Your Cool in GREENWOOD VILLAGE

GREENWOOD VILLAGE drivers rely on their vehicle's coolant system to keep their engine cool. Coolant (also called antifreeze) mixed with water flows through your vehicle engine and absorbs heat. The mixture then flows out to the radiator where it's cooled by air flowing over the radiator. From there the coolant/water mix circulates back through the engine to absorb more heat.There's a reason we mix coolant and water. Water alone actually does a good job transferring heat from the engine. The problem is that water boils at a temperature that's easily reached inside your vehicle's engine, so it can turn to steam which does not conduct heat as well and is harder to contain.Also, if it's freezing outside in GREENWOOD VILLAGE, the water in your engine could freeze while your vehicle is sitting out in the CO cold.So, if you remember your high school chemistry, you'll know that a mixture has both a higher boiling point and a lower freezin ... read more

The Antero Auto & Truck Services Guide to Saving Fuel: Car Weight

The team at Antero Auto & Truck Services in GREENWOOD VILLAGE, and CO car owners are all talking right now. Better gas mileage. Fewer emissions. GREENWOOD VILLAGE drivers want to save the environment and their pocketbooks.And we all know—or should know—that preventive maintenance will help maximize fuel economy. But is there something more people in GREENWOOD VILLAGE can do? After all, some of us folks can't cut back on our driving, and others would like to do more to economize.Weight is one major enemy of fuel economy. The more you lug around in your vehicle, the more fuel you have to burn to get from point A to point B. And that means buying more gas in GREENWOOD VILLAGE and producing more emissions.Of course, your vehicle's weight isn't negotiable. And you can't do much about the weight of your passengers.
