Gauges are your first, and often only, line of defense in catching a major problem before it’s too late. At American Auto Clinic in Albuquerque, we know that sometimes a faulty gauge is overlooked when the truck is still running fine and there’s a busy day ahead. However, gauges are extremely important, and are typically easy to repair.
Oil pressure, air pressure, battery voltage, fuel levels, and engine temperature are vital statistics for your truck. Particularly in the case of coolant temperature and oil pressure, these issues can go totally unnoticed without a gauge, until suddenly there’s a critical engine failure. Best case scenario you lose all your coolant in a parking lot, the worst-case scenario you’re looking at a new engine.
Typically, the gauges themselves don’t actually fail. It’s usually a simple ground fault switch or sending unit on the engine that has gone bad, interrupting communication to the gauge. Almost always, it’s a simple fix...the old one is unscrewed, and replaced with a new one, and your gauges are returned to peak performance in no time. A double-digit repair bill and 30 minutes of your time can easily save an entire engine.
