We were visiting ABQ, when our DEF tank started acting up. We were leaving the next day. Called everywhere with no callback. Then we found Daniel with By The Book. He even texted with my wife on a Sunday! We took our truck in the next day after the code light went off by itself...lol. They tested Def and checked everything they could. Good honest people are hard to find, but this garage is BOTH! We made it back to Okc with no problems at all. I wish you were closer, as we would use you for all our truck issues. Thank you so much, Daniel!

mechanic placing a car battery into a vehicle

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.

lifted truck with large wheels

Nothing is more important to the aesthetic of your Chevrolet, Ford, or Dodge diesel truck than the wheels you choose to install. The right set of wheels is necessary to achieve the look, feel, and stance you’re looking for. They can take a good-looking truck and turn it into a real head-turner. At By The Book Diesel & Auto Repair in Albuquerque, NM, diesel pickups are what we do. Our technicians can help you source wheels, order them, and ensure they have the perfect fit, achieving that perfect look you’re going for.

We know you’re busy. At By The Book Diesel & Auto Repair in Albuquerque, NM, we also know that while there are certain issues with your car, truck, or SUV you can ignore for a while, some of them shouldn’t wait. While serious issues are often obvious, sometimes they aren’t - ball joints are one such case.

car braking

Judging by the number of near-rear-endings we witness on our morning commutes, the typical attitude toward brake maintenance appears to be, “Brakes: Don’t let them stop you!” This puzzles us because monitoring your braking system’s health is one of the most straightforward aspects of car ownership. You do have to know what to look for, though, or rather, what to listen and feel for. So let us, uh, break it down for you. Here are the top three signs that your brakes need fixing.
