Keeping your fuel system maintained will prevent premature parts failure and poor running conditions. Here at By The Book Diesel & Auto Repair we have tips on the important aspects of diesel fuel system maintenance, to keep your diesel fleet trucks running smoothly - longer.

Air. Air in the system causes all kinds of issues, from hard starting, poor running conditions, or an engine that won’t run at all. If too much air gets in the system, the fuel pump won’t be able to deliver fuel, and the engine will stall, die, or fail to start.  Air enters the system via a leak or a bad seal - a deteriorated o-ring, worn component, faulty hose, or otherwise. Here we inspect your lines and connections to ensure they are in good shape and track down any leaks we notice air in the system.

Torque converter

If you drive a lightweight car, truck, or SUV, the torque converter you have installed is probably just fine. For those of you with more heavy duty applications, like high horsepower setups or towing rigs, the stock converter may not be enough. At By The Book Diesel & Auto Repair in Albuquerque, NM, we can help with that.

Pile of tires

There are multiple types of tires on the market for almost every car, truck, or SUV. The type of tire you want depends on a variety of factors, from climate to how you drive. Here’s a short rundown of common street tires that’ll suit your needs.

fleet of cars

Are your fleet vehicles equipped with four-wheel or all-wheel drive? More and more, companies are moving towards vehicles equipped with one or the other - they’re safer and more useful, particularly in inclement weather or less than ideal conditions. If your fleet is powered by all four wheels, By The Book Diesel & Auto Repair has you covered.

5 star rating from Patricia H. for By The Book Diesel & Auto Repair on Google

So, we bought a used truck. We knew there were some modifications, but weren’t quite sure how modified it was until stuff started breaking. The dealer stopped the diagnostic when they found an engine tuner. So here we came. It took a while for the truck to reproduce the problem (of course). Once it did, we were kept aware of the progress, costs, etc. I know it ended up being a lot of work for them, and they had to call in some other experts, wipe and reinstall the computer programming etc. The truck runs great, and we felt that this place is a very honest, upfront company. I don’t feel like we were cheated in the slightest, and it’s obvious that they don’t cut corners. 100% recommend! - Victoria C. (5 star review on Google)

I have a 2001 F-350 with over 225K miles. I attribute the longevity and lack of troubles to the excellent mechanical and customer service. - Ed C. (recommended on Facebook)
