SAVE GAS MILEAGE! Did you know that without regular maintenance an air conditioner loses about 5% of its original efficiency per year? This means that without proper maintenance, your air conditioning unit may be performing as poorly as other models that are years older! But there is good news: you can still recover most of that lost efficiency. Schedule an appointment with one of our factory-trained professionals. We understand all aspects of AC repair from modern computerized components to environmental disposal concerns. Today's AC systems are fairly complex, and new improvements are always being initiated. That's why you need to turn to us, the qualified source for everything related to your air conditioning system.
Here at Daystarr Motors, we are ready to inspect and repair all the components that make up your A/C system, including: The compressor, the condenser, the receiver (also known as the drier), the orifice tube (also known as the expansion valve), and the evaporator.
Let's face it, you can have the most meticulously-maintained vehicle on the road, but it won't start without the right battery, properly installed and appropriately fitted for your driving needs. From ignition to door locks, your car battery is the catalyzing force that allows you to get from point A to point B. DID YOU KNOW THAT A POORLY CHARGING BATTERY CAN ALSO HAVE AN AFFECT ON YOUR MPG? This is why we go with only INTERSTATE batteries. Call or stop in for more details!

Among all the equipment in your vehicle, belts and hoses have the shortest lifespan. Due to constant exposure to heat, vibration, and harmful chemicals these components invariably crack, leak, fray, and peel. If not promptly replaced and maintained this could spell disaster for the performance of your vehicle. No one really knows that a poorly functioning belt can work your motor harder than it should, as a result, lower gas mileage.
Do you hear awful grinding, perhaps you smell nasty scents coming from your vehicle when you apply the brakes or how about hearing a slight ringing as you travel around town?
If so, you probably need your brakes inspected, replaced, or repaired immediately!

IS YOUR CHECK ENGINE LIGHT ON? DON'T INGORE IT!!!
Your modern vehicle's engine is a highly sophisticated piece of equipment. The days of your father's gas-guzzler are long gone-instead, Federal Exhaust Emission and Fuel Economy regulations demand that today's vehicles be equipped with electronic engine control systems, to curb carbon emissions and increase fuel efficiency.
Your entire vehicle runs in a series of circuits -if one sensor is out, it will demand more on the other sensors and lead to a poorly functioning vehicle. It may also deliver inaccurate information to the other sensors, as a result, throwing off the entire computer system! This will lead to more sensors failing and the original cost to repair may now be doubled! Please stop in immediately when your check engine light appears!
The axle on your vehicle is the structural component that connects two wheels together on opposite sides. It's a load-bearing assembly that acts like a central shaft, maintaining the position of the wheels relative to each other and to the vehicle body.
Simply put, a drive axle is one that is driven by the engine. Typically found in modern front wheel drive vehicles, a drive axle is split between two half axles, with differential and universal joints between them. Each half axle is connected to the wheel by a third joint—the constant velocity (CV) joint—that allows the wheels to move freely. This joint allows the shaft to rotate, transmitting power at a constant speed without a significant increase in friction and heat .
If you hear a clicking or cracking noise, you have a worn joint, and it must be repaired immediately. Daystarr Motors will have you back on the road, "click-free" in no time!

Front-end mechanics align and balance wheels and repair steering mechanisms and suspension systems. They frequently use special alignment equipment and wheel-balancing machines. Brake repairers adjust brakes, replace brake linings and pads, and make other repairs on brake systems. Some technicians specialize in both brake and front-end work.
After many years of fuel injection "service," I think that some service technicians still misunderstand the process of proper fuel system handling. Much has been said over the years in regard to when and how to perform injector cleaning. Some manufacturers have suggested methods of cleaning while others have issued bulletins to disregard any cleaning at all. Here at Daystarr Motors, we have top of the line BG Products to take care of your vehicle.
The primary function of your car's suspension and steering systems is to allow the wheels to move independently of the car, while keeping it "suspended" and stable. Any play or uncontrolled motion in these systems results in a deterioration of handling and accelerated tire wear. Vehicle alignment is closely tied to the condition of the suspension and steering systems.
Worn or loose components affect the suspension system's ability to control motion and alignment angles, resulting in a deterioration of vehicle handling and stability, and accelerated tire wear.
The main components of the suspension system are:
- Control Arms
- Ball Joints
- Springs Coil or Leaf)
- Shock Absorbers
We have the largest Tire Balancing Equipment in the area! Up to 24' inch wheels!
Often confused with wheel alignment, a properly balanced wheel is a beautiful, perfectly tuned wheel-tire combination. This is accomplished by placing measured lead weights on the opposite side of the "heavy spot"-the noticeable tread wear on your unbalanced tire.
How do I know if I need my wheels balanced?
Is your vehicle vibrating at certain speeds, say, between 50 and 70 mph? If so, chances are your wheel is out of balance. One section of your tire is heavier than the other because it's endured more exposure to the friction and heat of the road. Come in for prompt, professional service. Most people are very satisfied with the difference such a simple and inexpensive procedure makes. Look for these signs, and if you find either one, come see us:
- Scalloped, erratic wear pattern on tires.
- Vibration in steering wheel, seat, or floorboard at certain speeds.
Tire rotation can be beneficial in several ways. When done at the recommended times, it can preserve balanced handling and traction of the tires and even out tire wear. It can even provide performance advantages.
When should tires be rotated?
We recommend that high performance tires be rotated every 3,000 to 5,000 miles, even if they don't show signs of wear.
Tire rotation can often be done with oil change intervals while the vehicle is off the ground anyway. Tire rotation helps even out tire wear by allowing each tire to serve in as many of the vehicles wheel positions as possible. Remember, tire rotation can't correct wear problems due to worn mechanical parts or incorrect inflation pressures.
While every vehicle is equipped with four tires, usually the tires on the front need to accomplish very different tasks than the rear tires. And the tasks encountered on a front wheel drive car are considerably different than those of a rear wheel drive car. Tire wear experienced on a performance vehicle will usually be more severe than those on a family sedan. Each wheel position can cause different wear rates and different type of tire wear.
It is an advantage when all four tires wear together because as wear reduces a tire's tread depth, it allows tires to respond to the driver's input more quickly, maintains the handling, and it helps increase a tire's cornering traction.
When your tires wear out together you can get a new set of tires, without being forced to buy pairs. If you replace tires in sets you will maintain the original handling balance. And our suppliers are constantly introducing new tires, each of which improves upon their past product's performance. If you replace your tires in sets, it allows you to experience today's technology, instead of being forced to match yesterdays.
For those of you who aren't mechanically-savvy, you probably still understand that transmission problems are among the most expensive repairs required for your vehicle. That's because your transmission is a complex system of gears that transmit mechanical power to your engine, ultimately determining the rate of speed you travel. Transmissions convert this power from the engine so that it can supply high torque at low speeds, in addition to selecting which gears are appropriate based on the driving conditions. This is especially true with automatic transmissions—by far the most popular transmissions found in the US. Rather than using a clutch to engage the transmission, automatic transmissions use a torque converter (between the engine and transmission) to control the number of gears when driving. Supplying the power to regulate gear action is a demanding task, which is why it's important for you to contact us, your transmission service specialists. Here are some of the essential maintenance tasks we complete:
- Drain transmission and torque converter
- Refill Automatic Transmission Fluids (ATF) with new fluid
Transmission problems typically arise when regular service is neglected. When fluids aren't properly changed, heat caused from mileage friction results in rough shifting, accelerated wear, and even complete failure. That's why it's essential that you turn to us to make sure that your transmission is lubricated and cooled by the finest quality transmission fluids, installed by our service professionals.
