MAINTAINING YOUR VEHICLE
As time goes by, various auto repair and maintenance needs come up at different intervals. Most manufacturers recommend car maintenance in intervals of 30,000 miles. This is the 30/60/90K mile schedule (issued by the manufacturers to car owners). Trust the experts at Jay's Automotive to keep you on schedule, and help you preserve the condition of the vehicle, optimize its performance, and increase its resale value. The 30/60/90K service includes the following:
Oil and Filter changes
Inspection of parts and systems - gears, tires, brake pads, belts, hoses, etc.
With higher mileage: spark plugs, belts, timing belts when applicable.
The best way to care for your car or truck is to follow the service intervals that your vehicle's manufacturer recommends. Jay's Automotive has the tools and expertise to make sure your ride runs exactly as its manufacturer intended it to. From reminding you about routine service intervals to ensuring that all fluids, filters, and hoses are in optimal condition, we take care of your vehicle and leave you with one less thing to worry about.
To keep running smoothly, your car highly relies on oil, lube, and oil filters. Oil helps in lubricating, cooling, and cleaning the internal engine components. With time, motor oil becomes contaminated. Your car needs an oil, lube, and filter change every three months (or 3,000 miles). When it is time for a lube, oil, or filter change, bring your vehicle to Jay's Automotive in Eaton Colorado.
A car's coolant system transfers excess heat from one part of the engine and finally loses it through the radiator fins. With time, the coolant becomes old and dirty. The old coolant will negatively impact the system's performance. To make sure the system is working effectively, consider having a regular coolant system flush. A coolant flush is basic maintenance for your car's cooling system. Call 970-454-3602 or stop by Jay's Automotive.
BULBS & FILTERS
Not only is it unsafe to drive with burned out lights, it’s also illegal. Don’t wait for your headlights to dim and burn out before you replace them. Most headlights will dim over time and replacing them regularly will ensure the best lighting performance. Also, replacing your headlamps or taillights in pairs can help you avoid uneven illumination, which can reduce your driving visibility.
Batteries can fail over time, especially in extreme temperatures and harsh environmental conditions. Car batteries—and batteries for other motorized vehicles—store energy produced by the alternator to provide the power that allows the engine to start when the key is turned in the ignition. A car battery is also responsible for powering other accessories in the vehicle, such as headlights, tail lights, interior lights, radios, infotainment systems, and more when the engine is not running. Jay's automotive O'Reilly Auto Parts has the right replacement battery for your vehicle. Stop in today to test or replace your vehicle battery.
WINDSHIELD WIPER BLADES
Driving with worn-out windshield wipers can be dangerous. Streaking, chattering or skipping wiper blades compromise your view of the road in inclement weather. Jay's Automotive offers free wiper blade installation with the purchase of wiper blades.
BELTS & HOSES
A fan belt, also known as a drive belt, is a belt connecting your car's engine to the front mounted accessories. The fan belt rotates the water pump and engine fan, which maintains a cool environment for the engine and its components. Sooner or later, your vehicle's fan belts will dry out and crack. The mechanics at Collins Muffler & Service will thoroughly inspect your car's belts; replace all worn belts; and adjust the installed belts. Call Jay's Automotive for all your vehicle's repair needs.
TIRES & WHEELS
Jay's Automotive offers a full line of tires and wheels for your vehicle. When you need tires, the experts at Jay's Automotive will recommend the best tires for your needs and budget.
Your vehicle is properly aligned when all suspension and steering components are sound and when the tire and wheel assemblies are running straight and true. Proper alignment is necessary for even tread wear and precise steering. Uneven front-or rear-tire wear, or changes in your vehicle's handling or steering response (i.e. pulling to one side) can indicate misalignment. Your vehicle may need a 'front-end' alignment or a 'four-wheel' alignment, depending on the symptoms you are experiencing. At Jay's Automotive we include the followin in a wheel alignment service:
An experienced technician will carefully restore your wheels to their proper alignment.
Front-end and/or rear-end mechanical adjustments, if needed
Careful inspection of your tire condition, air pressure, steering, and suspension
Verifying that your new alignment readings meet your vehicle manufacturer's specifications (if applicable)
