- Terri R. (5-star Google review)

Very pleased with their work!

I limped into ABQ with my 6.0L Powerstroke diesel overheating and 179,000 on the odometer (N. TX is home). I'd had the head bolts and new gaskets done at 125,000, but the heads had not been replaced. Daniel recommended the heads be replaced this go round. He did oil pump, oil cooler, and water pump too.  They followed factory head torquing procedure meticulously, which is crucial. It was a costly job, but five months later and no signs of trouble.  Very pleased with thoroughness and candor of these guys. Highly recommend. - John H. (5 star review on Yelp)

This team goes the extra mile!

Great place! Daniel and his team know exactly what they are doing and go the extra mile, in a friendly relaxed way. Not only is service expert and fast, the price is fair. My dad recommended By the Book for my car repairs and now I'm passing this on. - Andrea P. (5 star review on Google)

Honest, quality work.

I choose By the Book Diesel and Auto Repair to keep my small fleet of trucks well maintained. Great mechanics are hard to find. (My father owned a repair shop for 30 years in which I had the privlege to work in and learn how to keep customers for life). Those same core values of honesty, quality work & accurate time of completion are important to me and it is how Daniel Phillips and his crew of certified technicians runs his business. Mike D.

I would recommend By The Book for any service!

As anyone anywhere can agree, finding honest, competent mechanics are hard to find. Daniel and his team at By The Book are people you can trust. You may not like the diagnosis that they give your vehicle but you will get an honest appraisal of what is wrong with your vehicle and an honest plan for what it will take to correct the problem. I would definitely recommend By The Book Diesel & Auto Repair for any work from simple oil changes to full engine replacement. They got my Silverado back running like a champ! Thank you Daniel and team! - Matt M. (5 star review on Google)

By The Book went above and beyond!

Drove to Albuquerque the weekend before Thanksgiving last year.  On that Monday truck was having hard starts and was surging.  Started calling around for shops and no one but By The Book Diesel would even look at the truck until after Thanksgiving.  Took the truck in on Monday afternoon and they found the transfer fuel pump was bad -- ugh! as I know that usually takes out the injector pump too which costs thousands.  I gave them the go-ahead expecting that, after ordering parts and the long holiday, the truck would be done early in the week after Thanksgiving.  But at 8:30PM Wednesday night, the night before Thanksgiving I get a call saying the truck is done!  They busted their butt replacing the pump with an in-tank pump and getting the truck going again so I could get back home!  I got lucky and didn't need the injector pump but By The Book Diesel worked late for me over the holiday and I was able to get home and didn't miss a day of work.  Much appreciated! - David M.
