Oil Change Longmont

If you’re like most of us, you know that a regular oil change is one of the easiest and most useful maintenance practices you can perform for your vehicle. And if you’re like many of us, you don’t follow up and take the time to do it. And that is a mistake. Our lives are so busy and an oil change? Who’s got the time? It just continues to fall down our list of priorities, but our vehicles are one of the larger expenses we incur in life and it deserves to be given a higher priority in our list of “things to do”. Unfortunately it often takes a breakdown for us to realize just how important our vehicles are to daily life.

The parts of an engine are in constant contact with each other. And they are moving back and forth over each other at high speeds and high friction. Friction is what causes wear and it is oil’s job to reduce wear, cool your engine and to prevent gunk from building up within your engine. Less wear on moving parts means they operate more efficiently, meaning maximum fuel economy, a reduction in harmful emissions and a longer life for your engine. . Less wear also keeps gaskets and seals supple resulting in fewer leaks.

So is there an correct mileage interval for oil changes? The truth is, there is no one-size-fits-all answer. John Stonum says that car owners should follow the manufacturer’s recommended interval. Many modern cars have a dashboard display that monitors mileage. rpms and oil usage and tells you exactly how much life you have in your oil. Trust it. But with the innovations of synthetic oil and better-built vehicles, this interval is usually greater than 3,000 miles. Some higher end rides hold up to 10 quarts of premium synthetic oil and so their intervals can exceed 7000 miles.

There has a lot of talk about synthetic versus conventional oil. While synthetic oil “comes” from conventional oil, it is simply better than conventional oil. It has been broken down to its basic molecules which not only removes most impurities, it allows the insertion of engineered additives to improve the life and viscosity of the oil, or to help keep your engine clean. Synthetic oils do not break down as quickly as petroleum-based oil which gives the user a longer interval between oil changes. This longer interval can also help recoup some of the cost of the higher priced synthetics. At Stonum Automotive, we use premium blended/synthetic oil for our basic oil changes. We fill your window wash and top off other fluids that may be low. We include a free tire rotation as well as a 29- point vehicle inspection, performed by an ASE certified professional.

Maybe you have taken your car to one of those quickie lube shops in the past, looking for a short turnaround and sometimes, in a pinch, they are alright for a basic oil change but their range of expertise is extremely limited and their dedication to customer service leaves much to be desired. Or maybe you prefer to do it yourself. Sure, you can save a few bucks if you don’t mind crawling under your vehicle and hauling the waste oil away to an auto parts store, using up an hour of your time but there are many advantages to having a dedicated professional take care of this.

Stonum Automotive offers expert service and years of experience to provide the insights you need to keep an eye out for trouble. An oil change performed by one of our trained technicians can catch other maintenance or repair items before they become a problem, which is why it is so important to develop a good relationship with your mechanic.

Our basic oil change takes between 45 minutes and an hour the extra time is worth it. You will get far more out of our service. We will get to know your vehicle and keep an accurate record of maintenance for you and your vehicle. All oil changes at Stonum Automotive are performed by skilled ASE professionals, who are eager to deliver great customer service and high quality vehicle care. We want to make sure you return to Stonum Automotive, not just for oil changes, but for all your vehicle service and maintenance needs.

An oil change is one of the best things you can do for your trusted ride. It will save you money in the long term, both in potential repairs and in fuel costs. And really, what would you prefer; the ease of planning to be without your vehicle for a short time while we give your car a little attention or the hassle of breaking down on the side of a dark and wet road? Call us 303-485-9303  and we’ll take care of you.

For questions, contact us at 303-485-9303 or send us an email, and our experts will help determine what needs to be done.

Our basic auto maintenance services include:

Distributorless Ignition

Although the distrubutorless ignition requires less maintenance, they do still require it. For all your distributorless engine servicing needs, call or visit Stonum Automotive today.

Fuel Injection
Fuel injection is a system for admitting fuel into an engine. Since 1990, fuel injectors have completely replaced carburetors as the primary means of getting gasoline into the engine. A fuel injection atomizes the fuel by forcibly pumping it through a small nozzle (under high pressure). Failure of the fuel injection system means poor performance and ultimately destroys the vehicle. Make sure your vehicle’s fuel injection system is maintained properly. For all your fuel injection maintenance and replacement needs, call 303-485-9303 or visit Stonum Automotive today.

Ignition
An ignition system is a system for igniting (using an electric spark) a mixture of fuel and air in a gasoline engine. A properly working ignition system means a properly starting engine and high performance from your car. For all your ignition system maintenance and replacement needs, call or visit Stonum Automotive today.

Ignition Wires & Cables
Ignition cables also known as spark plug wires are an important part of your car’s ignition system. They transfer the spark from the ignition coil to spark plugs that ignite the mixture of fuel and air. The mixture starts the engine. Over time, ignition wires and cables get weak and break down. This makes it impossible for the spark to reach the engine cylinders. This results in the engine misfiring. The car will eventually fail to start. If it does start, it will run poorly. Common symptoms of faulty ignition cables and wires are: poor gas mileage, engine misfires, engine light is on, and engine may vibrate. If your car needs new ignition cables and wires, call or visit Stonum Automotive in Longmont, CO 80501. Here, you will have the wires and cables changed by a top-rated mechanic.

Spark Plugs
A spark plug delivers electric current to the combustion chamber from the ignition system. Spark plugs that haven’t been changed for a long time can cause ignition problems. At Stonum Automotive, we have automotive experts who will check and replace your spark plugs. For all your spark plug repair or replacement needs, call 303-485-9303 or visit Stonum Automotive today.

Oil, Lube, and Filter
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, take your vehicle to Stonum Automotive in Longmont, CO 80501.

And because we guarantee the work we perform, you can rest assured you are receiving the highest quality engine overhaul and replacement services in the Longmont, CO 80501 area.

Our heavy duty services include:

Engine Maintenance
Any car part manufacturer will tell you that preventive maintenance is critical to the part’s lifespan. Like other auto parts, car engines aren’t built to last forever. However, you can increase the engine’s lifespan by performing regular preventive maintenance. The easiest way to maintain peak performance and fuel economy is to provide regular engine maintenance for your vehicle. To have your engine maintained by experts, visit Stonum Automotive.

Engine Replacement
The engine converts energy into useful mechanical motion. This amazing machine is what keeps your vehicle moving. Although generally reliable, a car engine is susceptible to damage and breakdown. When this happens, do not sit and stress over it. Take action. Take the vehicle to a mechanic for an engine replacement. Bring it to Stonum Automotive. Visit us at 1116 Colorado Ave for quality engine replacement services.

Timing Belt
A timing belt is a part of your car’s internal combustion engine. The belt synchronizes the camshaft and the crankshaft rotation so that the engine valves open and close at the correct timings. Also, the belt prevents the piston from striking the valves in an interference engine. Most cars we drive now have timing belts instead of timing chains and gears. Although different manufacturers have their recommended mileage, you need to have your car’s timing belt checked regularly. To have it checked by experts, contact Stonum Automotive today.

Cylinder Block
A cylinder block is the powerhouse for the motor vehicle. The solid cast car part houses the cylinders and their components (gaskets, valves, and seals) inside a lubricated and cooled crankcase. Since it is one of the most important parts of your car, the block is designed to be extremely strong and sturdy. Although strong and sturdy, the block is susceptible to failure resulting in a vehicle that won’t start. Cracked blocks, porous blocks, core plug, or freeze plug failure are some of the problems facing cylinder blocks. Call 303-485-9303to talk to the mechanics of Stonum Automotive about your cylinder block problems.

Cylinder Head
A cylinder head is the closed end of a cylinder (located in a car’s engine block). It sits above the cylinder block, closing the top of the cylinder and forming the combustion chamber. The cylinder head coordinates airflow in and out of the engine. Since the cylinder head’s chief function is to seal the cylinders properly, insufficient compression results in the car being difficult to drive. To have your cylinder head checked and repaired, talk to Stonum Automotive’s cylinder head repair and reconditioning specialists today.

Our electronic services include:

Computer

Transmission Repair Services

Longmont Transmission Repair - Stonum AutomotiveFrom manual to automatic transmission repair, Stonum Automotive in Longmont, CO 80501 knows how to fix the problem. Our knowledgeable auto experts will diagnose the situation and help you make a decision. Leave the dirty work to us!

Our competitively priced transmission services include:

Automatic Transmission
Automatic Transmissions shift between gears automatically to optimize driving, and changes gears based on the driver’s throttle pedal, vehicle speed, engine speed, and vehicle load. Typical automatic transmissions have 4-5 forward gear ratios, a Reverse, Park, and Neutral gear. Shifting gears occur automatically once the car is in Drive and there is no need for a clutch pedal or gear shift like there is in a Manual Transmission. Automatic transmission repair is complicated based on all the components that make it up, and you need to have any automatic transmission issues properly assessed by auto mechanics. Call 303-485-9303 to talk to the mechanics of Stonum Automotive about your transmission problems.

Clutches
There are clutches in both automatic and manual transmission cars, and different types of clutches. When shifting gears, the clutch engages and disengages from the flywheel and transfers the torque through the transmission. Clutches should help your vehicle start and shift gears smoothly. The clutch in your car receives a lot of wear and can eventually wear out. If your clutch begins slipping irregularly or is making noises that are raising suspicion, contact Stonum Automotive to see if clutch replacement is necessary.

Four-Wheel Drive Transmission
A four-wheel (4×4) drive vehicle has differential gears, both front and rear axles, and a transfer case attached to the transmission. Four-wheel drive vehicles demand maintenance on the transfer case, front differentials, rear differentials, and transmission fluids. Visit us on 1116 Colorado Ave for service on your four-wheel drive transmission services.

Front-Wheel Drive Transmission
If your vehicle has Front-wheel drive, the engine drives the front wheels only. The power is routed through the transmission to the final drive where it is split and sent to the two front wheels through the drive axles. The engine, transmission, and additional hardware is all located in the front of the car. If you are in need, Stonum Automotive of Longmont, CO will gladly repair front-wheel drive transmission vehicles.

Manual Transmission
Driving a vehicle with a Manual Transmission requires using the clutch pedal and gear shift to manually shift gears based on the speed of the vehicle. Manual transmissions have been built with anywhere from two to eight gears. Front-wheel drive and rear-wheel drive are the two main configurations for manual transmissions. Typically, manual transmissions require less maintenance then automatic transmissions. At Stonum Automotive, our auto mechanics can diagnose your vehicle and then recommend the transmission repair or transmission service you need to ensure safety and improve the lifetime of your vehicle.

Auto Electrical Repair & Maintenance

Electrical problems are some of the most frustrating issues a car owner can face. Let Stonum Automotive get to the bottom of these problems for you and fix them fast. Have a dead battery? Misfiring starter or alternator? For all of your auto electrical repair and maintenance needs, come to Stonum Automotive in Longmont, CO 80501. We service your vehicle with care, providing a high level of workmanship you can trust.

So many processes in your vehicle depend on the electrical system. Let’s review some of the many things you rely on in your car that are directly affected by the electrical system (short of the battery and alternator):

  • Interior lights, headlights, brake lights
  • Power seats
  • Power windows
  • Power mirrors

…and many more. Plus one has to think about other vital systems. Faulty electrical connections can make various lights come on, including the check airbag light, which can be a complex problem to fix. Stonum Automotive’s experts can troubleshoot and fix all of these and more electrical related problems. Here are two of our specialties:

Batteries
The battery supplies electric energy which powers the ignition system, the starter motor, and the lights of an automotive. If you need to jump-start your vehicle in the morning, your battery is failing. When a battery starts deteriorating, it can either be replaced or repaired – this will depend on the severity of the damage. If you are having issues with your car battery, contact Stonum Automotive in Longmont, CO. We provide a convenient battery testing and replacement service to get you back on the road. Battery replacement, charging, installation, testing, and recycling – we handle it all.

Starters
A starter is a motor (electric, hydraulic or pneumatic) that rotates the internal combustion engine to initiate the engine’s operation.

At Stonum Automotive, we have experts who can handle all your starter needs to get you back on the road – quickly. Visit Stonum Automotive today.

Auto A/C & Heating Services

Car AC and Heating Repair in Longmont - Stonum AutomotiveIf the breeze from those open windows just isn’t cutting it, come by our shop in Longmont, CO 80501 to get an expert opinion on what we can do to fix your auto A/C or heating problems. We offer affordable prices and guaranteed workmanship. Contact us at 303-485-9303, so we can help you drive in comfort.

Why maintaining your AC System is very important:
Heating and A/C systems may break eventually with usage, hose pipes may clog and drip if not serviced, causing reduced efficiency heating and cooling capabilities. Regular maintenance will keep your AC system operating at peak performance!

Indications your A/C system may be having issues:

  • If your air conditioning blows only slightly cooler air compared to the exterior air
  • Air that blows in smells damp, musty, or like mildew and mold
  • Your cabin does not warm up in cold weather, or is just a little warmer than outside
  • The defroster takes longer than typical to operate, or does not operate
  • Your heater or A/C only functions when driving, not when idling, or quits blowing when the car is stationary
  • Your heating system blows cold air, or the air conditioning blows warm air
  • Low airflow even at the highest fan setting.

A comprehensive evaluation of heating and A/C system includes:

  • Examining the internal controls and blower
  • Checking radiator coolant operating temperature, hoses, pressure radiator cap and thermostat
  • Inspecting the compressor belt
  • Inspecting system and seals for leaks or various other damages.
  • A cooling system pressure test
  • Verifying the A/C pressure meets manufacturer specifications
  • Measuring the interior vent air temperature

Our repair and maintenance services include:

Air Conditioning
Have you been sweltering in your vehicle lately? Perhaps your car’s air conditioner isn’t functioning properly. At Stonum Automotive we have qualified service professionals who can fix your air conditioner. To have an air conditioning system serviced, repaired, or replaced by experts consider visiting Stonum Automotive. You can also call us at 303-485-9303 with any questions relating to your vehicle’s air conditioner.

Belts
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. When you are ready for a replacement you can count on Stonum Automotive for all your vehicle’s repair needs.

You not only have to get the belts replaced with quality ones but you should have the work done by experts. To have the belts replaced by auto cooling and heating experts – and get your car driving right – visit Stonum Automotive today. The mechanics at Stonum Automotive will thoroughly inspect your car’s belts; replace all worn belts; and adjust the installed belts.

Radiators
Radiators are heat exchangers for cooling your car’s internal combustion engine. A radiator cools the engine by circulating an engine coolant through the engine block – it then loses the heat to the atmosphere through radiation. A radiator has a set of tubes through which the engine coolant flows. Fins surround these tubes. When the radiator fails, the excess heat produced by the engine could damage the engine components. To prevent this from happening, have your radiator serviced regularly. To have your radiator needs handled by experts, visit Stonum Automotive today.

Undercar Services: Maintenance & Repair

Rely on Stonum Automotive in Longmont, CO 80501 to provide quality care for your vehicle’s undercarriage. Stop by our shop to see how we can help you or call 303-485-9303 for more information.

To keep your vehicle running at peak performance, we provide undercar services that include:

Alignment
Wheel alignment (or simply alignment) is standard car maintenance that involves adjusting the angles of the wheels so that they are set to the manufacturer’s specifications. The main purpose is to let the suspension and the steering systems operate at their desired angles – this reduces tire wear. Alignment is a complicated process and not all mechanics get it right. To have experts handle your car’s alignment, visit Stonum Automotive.

Anti-Lock Brakes
Anti-lock brakes prevent wheel lock-up when rapidly decelerating by automatically modulating the brake pressure during an emergency stop. With this system, the wheels are able to maintain traction with the road while braking. Failure of the anti-lock brakes could lead to an increase in the risks of multiple vehicle crashes and run-off road crashes. To avoid this, have your anti-lock brake system checked and repaired by experts. At Stonum Automotive, we have anti-lock brake experts who will examine and repair your faulty ABS – keeping you safe.

Brakes
A brake is a mechanical device for slowing or stopping a vehicle (usually by means of friction). In short, a brake inhibits your car’s motion. It lets you stop the car whenever and wherever you choose. Brakes are one of the most important parts of a motor vehicle. Without them, you would not be able to stop the car. If your vehicle’s brakes are having issues, consider having them worked on. Brake experts at Stonum Automotive can work on your car’s brakes to ensure you have a safe drive.

Chassis
A chassis is the car’s internal framework that supports the body and other parts like the wheels, engine, transmission, driveshaft, differential, and suspension. A weak or damaged chassis will translate to a weak car. To have a strong and properly working vehicle, have your car’s chassis checked for defects. At Stonum Automotive, there are experienced undercar service providers who can work on your chassis.

Exhaust
In a motor vehicle, an exhaust system is a piping used to guide exhaust fumes away from the engine – usually to the rear of the vehicle. A properly functioning exhaust system not only sounds better, it is better – for you, your car, and the environment. Stonum Automotive has expert technicians to service your car’s exhaust system.

Driveline
A driveline is a part of your motor vehicle that connects the engine and the transmission to the wheel axles. The driveline consists of the parts of the powertrain less the engine and transmission. Failure of the driveline means that the car would not move since energy cannot be transmitted from the engine to the wheel axles. Therefore, make sure that your car’s driveline is regularly inspected and serviced. And, at Stonum Automotive, you can have the driveline serviced by experts.

Shocks
Shocks (or shock absorbers) are mechanical devices designed to smooth out rough roads. The devices do this by converting kinetic energy to another form of energy. Properly working shocks reduce the effect of traveling over rough ground, leading to improved ride quality and vehicle handling. When shocks develop problems, driving on poorly leveled roads becomes unpleasant, and your vehicle may sway when turning. To have your vehicle’s shocks diagnosed and repaired, visit Stonum Automotive today.

Fuel Injection
Fuel injection is a system for admitting fuel into an engine. Since 1990, fuel injectors have completely replaced carburetors as the primary means of getting gasoline into the engine. A fuel injector atomizes the fuel by forcibly pumping it through a small nozzle (under high pressure). Failure of the fuel injection system means poor performance and ultimately destroys the engine. Make sure your vehicle’s fuel injection system is maintained properly. For all your fuel injection maintenance and replacement needs, call 303-485-9303 or visit Stonum Automotive today.

Ignition
An ignition system is a system for igniting (using an electric spark) a mixture of fuel and air in a gasoline engine. A properly working ignition system means a properly starting engine and high performance from your car. For all your ignition system maintenance and replacement needs, call or visit Stonum Automotive today.

Ignition Wires & Cables
Ignition cables also known as spark plug wires are an important part of your car’s ignition system. They transfer the spark from the ignition coil to spark plugs that ignite the mixture of fuel and air. The mixture starts the engine. Over time, ignition wires and cables get weak and break down. This makes it impossible for the spark to reach the engine cylinders. This results in the engine misfiring. The car will eventually fail to start. If it does start, it will run poorly. Common symptoms of faulty ignition cables and wires are: poor gas mileage, engine misfires, engine light is on, and engine may vibrate. If your car needs new ignition cables and wires, call or visit Stonum Automotive in Longmont, CO 80501. Here, you will have the wires and cables changed by a top-rated mechanic.

Spark Plugs
A spark plug delivers electric current to the combustion chamber from the ignition system. Spark plugs that haven’t been changed for a long time can cause ignition problems. At Stonum Automotive, we have automotive experts who will check and replace your spark plugs. For all your spark plug repair or replacement needs, call 303-485-9303 or visit Stonum Automotive today.
