diesel tech working on engine

When you think about diesel engines, you probably think about large trucks and machinery, and maybe a few oddball cars over the years. So how long has diesel really been around, and why is it used the way it is today? More specifically, why should you choose a diesel engine for your needs?  Here at ACR Diesel & Auto Repair LLC in Kingman, AZ, we discuss this with customers often based on their unique needs along with the history of the diesel engine.

At ACR Diesel & Auto Repair LLC in Kingman, AZ, we know your Ford, Chevrolet, or Dodge pickup was designed for optimal power, torque, and towing and hauling ability, no matter what the job is. We also know that while getting up to speed in a timely fashion is important, your diesel pickup’s ability to stop is equally essential.

Your Vehicle Identification Number, or VIN, is essentially your car’s fingerprint. In its entirety, it is specific only to your car. Each car has its own unique VIN number and can be decoded to provide manufacturing and identification information on any vehicle on the road. Date of manufacture, manufacturer, vehicle type, where it was made, and options such as engine and transmission type, whether a car is a two or four-door, and a multitude of other specifications can be gleaned from a VIN number. Essentially, a VIN number will tell you exactly what a car is and where it came from, without even having to see the car.

It isn’t easy keeping your fleet or commercial trucks up and running. At ACR Diesel & Auto Repair LLC in Kingman, AZ, 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.

When it comes to transmissions, your fluid level is essential. Too much or too little fluid can affect pressure, cooling abilities, and lubrication. In order to best care for your vehicle, it's important to know what to look for, so from our shop here at ACR Diesel & Auto Repair LLC here are a few tips. 

air filter being added the engine

Air filters are an important part of vehicle maintenance. What many people don’t realize is you actually have two filters; one for your engine and a cabin filter to filter the air coming into your car. Both of them function the same way but have entirely different purposes. They are often neglected, particularly the cabin filter, and yours may need to be changed right now. This guide, provided by ACR Diesel & Auto Repair LLC in Kingman, highlights the importance of filters, symptoms of an overused one, and how to maintain them.
