At American Auto Clinic in Albuquerque, NM, we understand that the care for your vehicle is in the details. Transmission work, more so than any other type of maintenance or repair, requires a keen eye and specific know-how.

Manual transmissions have been around for a long time and if you have ever driven a manual you know how exciting they can be. Manual transmissions have also been referred to as standard transmissions, stick shifts, manual gearbox, or a simple gearbox. No matter what you call it, manual transmissions are fun to drive, better on fuel, reliable, and somewhat safer. So what do you know about manual transmissions; where did they come from, and how do they work? American Auto Clinic in Albuquerque, NM knows, and now you will too.

Flat tire on a car

At American Auto Clinic in Albuquerque, NM, we understand that you can’t prevent malfunctions all the time, every time. At some point in your driving history, you’ve probably dealt with a flat tire. Sometimes a tire goes flat in a parking lot, but sometimes a tire can fail while driving. Here are some indicators you have a tire that is about to fail, and how to handle the situation.

Your vehicle configuration determines how it should be properly towed to avoid transmission damage. Specifically, it matters if your vehicle is front-wheel drive or rear-wheel drive and whether it’s an automatic or a manual. From the professionals at American Auto Clinic in Albuquerque, NM, here’s how to tow your vehicle:

A good technician will give your vehicle a quick inspection whenever you have maintenance performed. Fluid levels, tire condition, dashboard lights, and a variety of other items typically are briefly explored whenever you bring your vehicle in for maintenance. At American Auto Clinic in Albuquerque, NM, we're good at noticing things that need repair, but the fact of the matter is that only you know your vehicle. You know when your vehicle feels off when its been serviced last (or that it hasn't been serviced at all,) and have at least some vague idea of what’s going on with your vehicle day to day. Here are some questions you can ask us next time you come by the shop:

mechanic working on an engine

Commercial trucks have heavy engines, and they spend a lot of time running, particularly at idle. As a result, the mounts that secure the engine to chassis of the truck have a tendency to wear out, causing all sorts of shaking and vibration that the driver will feel in the cab of the truck. At American Auto Clinic in Albuquerque, we can take care of that for you.

dash warning lights

Whether you drive a Powerstroke, Cummins, or Duramax diesel, your truck is a complex piece of equipment. Emissions systems, fuel systems, and systems you’ve probably never heard of all work together to keep your truck going strong. Sometimes, however, a warning light will pop up on your dash, and leave you wondering what’s going on. From ABS to Check Engine Lights, American Auto Clinic in Albuquerque, NM has you covered.
