Mechanic testing a car's battery

Chances are you don’t pay much attention to your vehicle’s battery until it dies, when you get to perform the dreary dual task of waiting for a jump while simultaneously calling for an appointment to get a new battery fitted. Of course, that’s if you’re sure it’s the battery that’s dead in the first place. The only way to be certain is to take it in to be tested. However, it generally helps to know the health of your vehicle battery prior to finding yourself stranded.

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 C H Auto Repair in La Vernia, TX, 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.
