Obviously, the dirtier your fuel system is, the bigger the improvement you will see in performance and fuel economy after a fuel system cleaning. But it is important not to wait until your system is running poorly. If you do, by the time you get a cleaning, you’ve wasted hundreds of dollars in gas or even possibly damaged your fuel injectors and catalytic converter.
The differentials on your Ford, Chevrolet, or Dodge diesel pickup are some of the hardest working components on your truck. At Kermit’s Certified Transmission & Auto in Kingman, our technicians are experts in maintaining, repairing, and replacing differentials, keeping your truck working reliable just as much as you do.
The fuel system is an integral aspect of any combustion engine, but it’s particularly important on diesel trucks.

Since the first automobiles, there have been radiators. Every liquid-cooled engine on the road has, and has always needed, a radiator; without it, the engine would overheat in no time, causing catastrophic engine failure. While the efficiency of radiators, the materials they’re made out of, and the shape and size of them have changed over time, radiators haven’t actually changed much over the last century or so. At Kermit’s Certified Transmission & Auto we know that even though radiators generally last a long time, they do occasionally fail. When your radiator is malfunctioning you can trust our technicians to repair yours and get you back on the road.
