bad tire

Are the tires on your diesel truck any good? At The Auto Repair Place in Boulder, CO, we want you to be able to spot the difference between a good tire and one that needs to be replaced. Here’s a quick guide on what to watch out for.

What are radial tires, where do they come from, and why are they important? If you own or operate a fleet or commercial truck, radial tires are an advancement you’re thankful for, whether you realize it or not. Here’s why, from The Auto Repair Place in Boulder, CO.

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.

oil change

At The Auto Repair Place in Boulder, we understand all too well the importance of changing your oil regularly. Three to five thousand miles sounds like a lot, but it doesn’t really take that long to rack them up. The busier you are, the more you probably drive, and the more likely you are to forget it’s time to change your oil. Here are some reasons to pay attention to your oil changes, and help you better understand why oil changes are so important.
