Regular maintenance checks of your vehicle will help you avoid a catalytic converter that looks like this resulting in large repair costs which is what our team here at By The Book Diesel & Auto Repair in Albuquerque want to avoid at all costs! We feel that every customer has a need to know what repairs are in their future and exactly how to budget for them if need be so we check your vehicle thoroughly and keep you informed.

There are several indicators that your catalytic converter isn't functioning at maximum capacity such as:

Fuel gauge on empty

At By The Book Diesel & Auto Repair in Albuquerque, NM, we know how annoying a faulty fuel gauge can be. Never knowing how much gas you have in your car, truck, or SUV, and constantly running the risk of stranding yourself on the road somewhere, takes its toll after a while. Luckily, we can fix that.

Tires may be the only part of a vehicle that physically meets the road, but your shock absorbers are next in line. Working with the suspension springs, they absorb shocks from bumps and cracks in the road, while simultaneously controlling bounce and body roll.

truck

The engine and transmission in your Chevrolet, Dodge, or Ford diesel pickup is the heart and soul of your truck. At By The Book Diesel & Auto Repair in Albuquerque, we repair, rebuild, and replace engines or transmissions with quality parts and builds, keeping your truck on the road for years to come.

Spark plugs have been around since the beginning, and play as important a role now as they did a hundred years ago. It’s a good idea to replace them as a set at regular intervals, but sometimes one will go bad sooner than the rest for one reason or another. How do you know if you have a bad spark plug? Here are some indicators, from By The Book Diesel & Auto Repair in Albuquerque, NM.

Coolant flushes are particularly important. No matter what type of car, truck, or SUV you drive, your cooling system is an essential aspect of maintaining the reliability of your vehicle.
