Whether you drive a Ford, Chevy, or Ram diesel pickup, it’s especially important that you always seek high-quality repair and maintenance from qualified professionals. At Reeves Auto Repair in San Luis Obispo, CA, we specialize in diesel vehicles and the ins and outs of diesel servicing. There are plenty of shops out there that can replace a part or perform a job, but it’s important that the technicians doing the work know what they’re doing, why they’re doing it, and are doing it right.

Transmissions rarely go out without a warning. Typically it takes a while, during which time there will be observable symptoms. Sometimes it’s an easy fix and sometimes it isn’t, but it’s always better to catch an issue and get it repaired as soon as possible. Reeves Auto Repair in San Luis Obispo, CA has provided you with a few things to watch out for.

If you spend much time on the road, you’ll eventually encounter a flat tire on your vehicle. At Reeves Auto Repair in San Luis Obispo, CA we want to prepare you for what you should do next.  First, get out of traffic immediately. It’s best if you can stop on solid, flat ground, out of the way of traffic where other drivers can see you. Don’t continue driving; your steering is compromised, and you risk damaging expensive components, including your rim. Next, decide whether you want to call a tow truck, or change the tire yourself.  If you have towing and assistance then you can call for help but it is always great to be able to handle the situation yourself if need be as there is not always cell phone service and you sometimes do not have the luxury of the added time it would take to wait for that assistance.

The Turbo on your Chevrolet, Dodge, or Ford diesel truck is an integral component of your truck’s ability to perform. Turbos affect everything from power output to fuel mileage, allowing your pickup to reach its full potential in terms of power, torque, and efficiency. At Reeves Auto Repair in San Luis Obispo, turbo knowledge is one of our specialties, because we understand the importance of quality turbo parts, replacements, and repair.

Vehicle belts aren’t that different than the belts that hold up your trousers. They need to fit properly and stay in place, and if they break, sag, or wear out, you’ll probably wish you were wearing a different belt that day. The same goes for the belts in your car. Your engine compartment is a punishing environment, and while all auto belts are made of materials designed to be both flexible and tough, even the toughest materials will eventually wear out due to the extreme temperatures under the hood.

Keeping our customers safe and on the road is our goal at Reeves Auto Repair in San Luis Obispo, CA. When something goes wrong with your engine or your vehicle's electrical system, your car will usually let you know immediately. However, when the rubber meets the road, you need to know that your tires are in great shape as well.
