It's crucial to not overlook the importance of oil changes, as motor oil is used to lubricate critical components of your engine. As more and more friction and heat is created by the motion of the engine, your oil helps reduce this heat that can cause unwanted harmful effects on your powertrain.

The service technicians here at P.M. Standley Motorcars are highly trained and very skilled, and they can perform an oil change for you in a timely fashion and for an affordable price!

Tire Rotations

Don't Underestimate the Significance of Routine Tire Rotations at P.M. Standley Motorcars

As you know, the tires on your vehicle are the first and only points of contact that your ride actually makes with the road you are driving on. As you drive around the city of Dallas and the Carrollton, Plano, Irving and Lewisville regions of Texas, the tread on all four of your wheels will slowly but surely begin to wear down as more time passes and more miles are recorded. Uneven amounts of tread on your tires are difficult to avoid, but there is an easy and straightforward solution to minimize their affects and to keep your wheels spinning safely!

Many Benefits of Tire Rotations That You & Your Car Will Appreciate

Regular tire rotations will help you keep tread levels on all four tires as even as possible, and there are several important benefits when you get this service completed. Routinely rotating your tires will greatly enhance their lifespan, since tread wear is not disproportionately occurring in the same spot on your tires. Rotations also result in improved gas mileages and better fuel economy, allowing you to save more money when you stop at the pump. In addition, you very well could notice a smoother and more comfortable ride after you rotate your tires.

And perhaps most importantly, a glaring lack of tire rotations could compromise the safety of your car, SUV or pickup truck and endanger fellow drivers. Tires indeed become too dangerous to drive on once the depth of tread hits a certain level, meaning that even a rotation cannot solve the issue. Your suspension system could suffer as well, resulting from unwanted vibrations due to this unsafe tread.

If you haven’t had a tire rotation performed in a long time, or you have any questions regarding tire tread, don't hesitate to contact our service department at P.M. Standley Motorcars today! Schedule your service appointment with us and ensure your wheels are spinning just as the automaker intended.

Most drivers are aware that your brake pads will begin to slowly experience wear and tear increasingly over time, and that eventually these key parts will need to be replaced. However, an important aspect of your braking system that you may not be aware is the brake fluid, which is entirely responsible for brake pads pressing against the rotors, ultimately causing you to slow down to a standstill.

Allow the pros here at P.M.

When this wheel alignment is in fact not exactly where it should be, you are no longer able to drive your car safely and there very well may be some hazardous and costly issues that can occur as a result.

Superb Tire Alignment Services To Keep You on the Straight & Narrow!

Window Tinting

A P.M. Standley Motorcars Window Tinting Tutorial

Think tinting your vehicle’s windows is just for style or privacy? There are several benefits behind this service installation option here at P.M. Standley Motorcars. From a cooler interior to reduced health risks from UV rays on hotter days behind the wheel around Dallas and Plano, you will find that even the less obvious window tinting advantages have difference-making appeal.

Consider the reasons to tint your vehicle’s windows here in Carrollton, TX, the styles of window tints you may consider for your daily driver, and some state regulation specifics you need to remain mindful of when surveying a variety of different window tint selections.

Car Window Tinting – How it Helps

While window tints can add a sophisticated look to an already stylish vehicle – also enhancing privacy for passengers inside – there are other benefits to choosing a window tint for your daily commuter that may not come to mind at first glance. Strong window tints can reportedly block up to 99 percent of UV rays from the sun, helping you avoid common damage and fading to interior upholstery that some drivers experience. Because of sun protection, your cabin remains cooler on humid days. This UV ray protection effect also serves to benefit your personal health, as your skin may be exposed to the sun on summer drives through Irving and Lewisville for longer periods.

Styles of Window Tints

A few examples of the window tints you may consider, along with some design factors to keep in mind, are as follows (state regulations permitting):

  • Infrared Films – A strong UV blocking impact leads to greater visibility behind the wheel for this common window tint option
  • Metallic Films – Recognized for its sleek aesthetic and stronger resistance qualities, this option does come with a downside of frequent cell phone blocked signals
  • Carbon Films - To avoid signal blockage, carbon films are a recommended option. GPS and phone access inside aren’t issues, as this film features some of the longest-lasting and most-effective UV ray blocking capabilities

Coated tinting and OEM tinting are two other selections you may consider. While coated tinting is extremely difficult to apply on your own – window removal required – OEM tinting comes built-in with the glass windows in-tact.

Window Tinting Laws – State Regulation Reminder

Check with specific state regulations to determine whether your style of window tint is legal. You could find yourself dealing with a substantial fine if pulled over with an illegal tint for your state location.

Rear Differential Service

Power Around Corners in Dallas Confidently with Regular Rear Differential Service at P.M. Standley Motorcars

The functionality of a vehicle’s wheels is complex, with the way you turn directly impacting how the inside and outside sections of your wheels specifically respond. And without proper performance, directly impacted by differential wear or damage, you can potentially lose power and subsequent control from the driver’s seat when traveling around a corner.

So how can you avoid issues where your wheels slip and no longer stick to the road surface dependably? With regular rear differential service here at P.M. Standley Motorcars! Our factory-trained technicians are happy to conduct this routine maintenance in accordance with your multi-point inspection schedule and the established service center visits here in Carrollton, TX you’ve arranged based on owner’s manual suggestions.

What Types of Vehicles is Rear Differential Service For?

Rear differential service here in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex area is typically conducted on rear-wheel drive vehicles. These models usually feature one differential located in the back of the vehicle, as differential configurations can vary based on the drivetrain incorporated into your daily driver. With respective gears, bearings and differential fluid to tend to, our certified mechanics can take a closer look and utilize diagnostics equipment to identify any potential areas of concern.

What are Warning Signs that Rear Differential Service is Needed?

Maintaining steady wheel power at varied speeds for turns and sharp corners around Dallas is crucial, as a loss of control in these moments compromises the safety of both you and others. If bearings become loose or your differential fluid is no longer at appropriate levels, you can run into potential problems that may indicate excess wear or damage is present. These signs of probable issues are as follows:

  • Noisy response observed as you pick up speeds
  • Clunky car reaction as you accelerate
  • Screeching noise heard as your drive progresses
  • Loud thud heard as you turn

While these problems warrant an immediate visit for a differential inspection and appropriate service, we recommend setting up a service center schedule with our team in Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex to frequently check in on the status of this essential system that relies on many different components. As a result, you can confidently proceed through sharp turns and winding corners without hesitation for many miles to come. Give us a call to make maintenance arrangements today!
