It isn’t easy keeping your fleet or commercial trucks up and running. At By The Book Diesel & Auto Repair in Albuquerque, NM, we’re here to help. Fleet and commercial vehicles log a lot of miles, and a lot of hours - as a result, even the most reliable components need to be serviced occasionally. On an ordinary diesel, an injection pump may last the entire life of the engine itself. On vehicles that work harder than anything else on the road, this isn’t always the case.
Do you have a noisy vehicle? If so, you may need a new muffler or exhaust system from our team here at By The Book Diesel & Auto Repair in Albuquerque. The purpose of your exhaust system is not only to reduce the noise but also to redirect fumes away from your vehicle.

Carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless chemical that can escape from an unsecured exhaust system, and if inhaled can pose very serious health hazards. If you experience an unusually loud sound coming from your vehicle, it is vital to get your exhaust system checked immediately!
Whether you drive a Duramax, Cummins, or Powerstroke diesel pickup, you have an exhaust system that is prone to failure. When you have a leak that needs attention, By The Book Diesel & Auto Repair in Albuquerque, NM can help.

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 By The Book Diesel & Auto Repair to perform proper maintenance, an average car battery can start your car reliably for roughly four years.
