Fuel Saving Tip: Littleton Tune Up

Fuel Saving Tip: Littleton Tune Up

Have you ever gone to Denver to listen to an orchestra? The musicians take the stage early and tune their instruments. Each individual instrument must be in tune, but the critical thing is for the entire orchestra to be in tune with each other. That’s why they tune up together. Now this is no surprise; I’m going to relate the orchestra to your car. Your engine has many component systems that each need to be working properly. And the components need to be working in sync, all timed up together in order for the engine to work efficiently. We call this, (ta-da) a tune-up. When an orchestra’s out of tune you get a bad concert. When your vehicle’s out of tune you get bad performance and bad fuel economy. So check your owner’s manual for recommended tune-up intervals. Or ask your Littleton service advisor at Eagle Automotive Service what he thinks. …Just be careful not to say you want to m ... read more

Tire Maintenance In Highlands Ranch

With the recent focus in Highlands Ranch on improving fuel economy, we’ve been told how important it is to maintain our tire pressure. Everyone in Highlands Ranch knows that tires wear out, but we all want to make them last as long as possible because they’re fairly expensive to replace. In addition to saving gas, properly inflated tires last longer. Under-inflated tires will wear out more quickly. Some people in Highlands Ranch wonder if there is benefit to adding a few extra pounds of pressure when they fill up their tires. But actually, there isn’t. In fact, there are very good reasons not to over-inflate your tires. For one, the middle of the tread will wear unevenly because the full tread is not contacting the road properly. That also adversely affects your handling. Give Eagle Automotive Service a call today! 7921 S Platte Canyon Rd Littleton, Colorado 80128 10143 W.

When to Change Your Oil – Eagle Automotive Service

When to Change Your Oil – Eagle Automotive Service

Today in the Eagle Automotive Service auto care blog, we’re going to talk about oil change intervals. It seems that as engine technology advances, recommended oil change intervals have gotten longer for Eagle Automotive Service customers. High quality oil in a well-engineered SUV engine has lead to extended intervals. But it’s also lead to some confusion among Littleton drivers. The old mantra “change your oil every three months or three thousand miles, whichever comes first” once applied to every vehicle in your garage. Time and miles take their toll on motor oil. But now, you could have a different oil change recommendation for every car or truck you own. Littleton people are like everybody else, they have a tendency to put off all the oil changes to the schedule of the vehicle with the longest interval. Of course, that can lead to problems. For example, recently four of the world’s largest auto manufacturers shortene ... read more
