Vehicle Maintenance

  • Maintaining the Cooling System in Your Vehicle

    checking your a/c coolant

    Your vehicle's cooling system is one of the most important systems in your vehicle. Inside your engine, spark plugs ignite the fuel within the cylinders to produce small explosions that propel your vehicle down the road. With small explosions comes scorching temperatures that can destroy your engine if not controlled. There are two types of cooling systems - liquid-cooled and air-cooled.

    Maintaining your car doesn't have to be a hassle, just bring it to our team here at The Auto Repair Place in Boulder. We can take care of all the dirty work.

  • Make Your Vehicle Go The Extra Miles with Proper Maintenance

    At The Auto Repair Place in Boulder, CO, we know the key to making your vehicle last; good maintenance. An overwhelming percentage of the problems we see, especially the really catastrophic ones, are a result of poor maintenance. While properly maintaining a vehicle can seem like a bit of a hassle, it is absolutely worth the payoff. Good maintenance is the only difference between a car that lasts 80,000 miles and a car that lasts 400,000 miles. Preventative maintenance and repair when a problem occurs are your two concerns, and both will keep your car on the road far longer if observed properly.

  • Need Of New Brake Pads?

    Do you need new brake pads? Most of the time, if you think you do, the answer is yes. While a lot of auto parts stores sell brake pads with lifetime warranties, don’t be misled...brake pads will still wear down.

  • Only The Best Parts for Your Ride

    Whether you drive a Chevy, Ram, or Ford diesel pickup, your truck is a quality engineered machine. At The Auto Repair Place in Boulder, CO, we honor that quality - not only in our service, but in the parts, we provide as well.

  • Proper Maintenance for Your Diesel Fuel System

  • Proper Maintenance for Your Transmission

    At The Auto Repair Place in Boulder, CO, we see a lot of the same mistakes that cause a transmission to fail. With our help, you can avoid a preventable transmission failure and keep your car reliably on the road.

  • Properly Maintaining Your Battery

    headlights

    Your car’s radio and headlights, plus a slew of other important functions, are powered by an electrical current generated by your vehicle’s engine. A vital part of generating electricity is having a place to store it while it’s not being used. This is where your car battery comes into play. The battery of your vehicle holds electrical energy while the car is off in order to help the engine turn over and create a spark to start internal combustion. Without a working battery, your car will not be able to start. If you allow our team here at The Auto Repair Place to perform proper maintenance, an average car battery can start your car reliably for roughly four years.

  • Protect Your Exhaust from Damage

    The exhaust on your truck is an important series of components, that work together to ensure smooth, reliable operation. At The Auto Repair Place in Boulder, we also know that exhaust systems are especially susceptible to damage and rust; pipes, mufflers, and other parts are exposed to hazards on the road, and to the environment. This situation, combined with caustic emissions and extreme heat, creates a perfect opportunity for problems to arise.

  • Protect Your Fleet From Leaks

    Whether it’s due to damage, or simply old age, leaky trucks are a problem. At The Auto Repair Place in Boulder, we can fix that for you.

    Water leaks are common and hazardous. Not only do they cause rust, rot, and mold damage to your trucks, they also put any cargo inside at risk. No customer wants their boxes and products to arrive water damaged - it not only makes your company look bad but can cost you a lot of money. 

  • Protecting A Car You Don't Drive Often

    It makes sense that a car that is rarely driven will last longer, right? It may seem counterintuitive, but that isn’t necessarily the case. Vehicles are meant to be driven, and various issues can arise if they aren’t stored properly or driven fairly regularly. If you have a car, truck, or SUV that you only drive occasionally, in the summer, to car shows, etc., this one is for you. Here’s what you need to know, from The Auto Repair Place in Boulder, CO.

  • Protecting Your Vehicle's Interior

    Cleaning the dashboard of a vehicle

    The interior of your car can be difficult to maintain; between you, your kids, and anyone else who gets a ride from you, wear and tear on the interior of your vehicle is constant. Drinks get spilled, burn holes appear, rips and tears happen. Unlike the rest of your car, the interior isn’t made of metal, so it requires special treatment to keep it in good condition.

  • Radiator Cooling Fan Won’t Turn Off?

    At The Auto Repair Place in Boulder, CO, we know how annoying little quirks and issues can be. A common problem vehicles experience is a cooling fan that doesn’t kick on and off when it’s supposed to. While a fan that won’t kick off is far less troubling than a fan that won’t turn on, it’s still a problem that needs to be fixed for a variety of reasons. Here’s why, and what you should do.

  • Replacing Shock Absorbers

    Tires may be the only part of a vehicle that physically meets the road, but your shock absorbers are next in line. Working with the suspension springs, they absorb shocks from bumps and cracks in the road, while simultaneously controlling bounce and body roll.

  • Routine Maintenance for Your Diesel

    Oil changes are integral to the performance, longevity, and reliability of your diesel truck. At The Auto Repair Place in Boulder, our expert mechanics understand the importance of good quality oil, changed at correct intervals, in allowing you to get the most out of your Cummins, Powerstroke, or Duramax diesel.

  • Safety First - Have you checked your lights & wipers?

    True safety starts with being able to see where you are driving. Your lights and wipers play a major role in safe driving and the chance of an accident increases if you can't see or be seen. No matter what time of year, it's important to make sure your vehicle's lights and wipers are working properly so your visibility is not compromised and you can be seen by others. From the driver's seat, you may not notice a light that isn't working, but when a big rain comes it becomes easier to see what you are missing! When wet weather hits your roads is not the time for you to discover limited visibility problems. Here at The Auto Repair Place we take our Boulder drivers' safety seriously and inspect their vehicles when they come in for service.

  • Service and Repair for Your Vehicles Under Warranty
