Differential being worked on

Chevrolet, Ford and Ram diesel pickups are well-built machines. Still, sometimes they break down. Here’s what you can do to prevent that from happening and reduce the cost of a more expensive repair. At CME Smog & Auto Repair in Vacaville, CA our diesel customers are important to us and we want your diesel to last you.

If your vehicle breaks down and you have to be towed make sure you are aware of proper steps to protect your vehicle's transmission. The vehicle’s 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 CME Smog & Auto Repair in Vacaville, CA, here’s how to tow your vehicle:

Brakes

At CME Smog & Auto Repair in Vacaville, we know that in order to keep your car in good shape, it helps to know how it works. Here’s a quick rundown of a system that’s very important, but you take for granted until there’s a problem; your brakes.

Shock absorbers in vehicle

Tires may be the only part of a vehicle that physically meets the road, but your shock absorbers are next in line. Working with the suspension springs, they absorb shocks from bumps and cracks in the road, while simultaneously controlling bounce and body roll.

air brakes

For obvious reasons, air brakes are an essential part of your rig. They also add a level of complication to the braking system that a conventional vehicle doesn’t have. At CME Smog & Auto Repair in Vacaville, our mechanics have the knowledge, equipment, and ability necessary to keep your air brakes in top shape.

transmissionPeople idle their vehicles for a variety of reasons - to warm it up on cool days and to keep it cool on warm days. But what does idling mean for your transmission? CME Smog & Auto Repair in Vacaville, CA has the answers.

Towing

Unless you use your vehicle to tow every day for work, odds are you haven’t paid much attention to your truck, SUV, or crossover’s towing capacity. Maybe you’re looking to buy a boat for some summer fun or just need to rent a trailer to get your belongings from one dwelling to the next. Whatever the reason for pulling something behind your vehicle, it’s important to get a firm grasp on what exactly your towing capacity means. Understanding how each of the components in your vehicle contributes to your overall tow rating can keep you from putting undue stress on your rig and keep you and your family safe.
