Your Vehicle's Computer Collects MORE Data Than Your SMART PHONE!

Your car data owned by manufacturers now

Newer Vehicles Generate as Much As 25GB of Data/Hour according to McKinsey.  Now That is Extremely Interesting!  It is also daunting as we now need to know "what data" right?  You also want to know where it is going if anywhere and who owns the data?  All interesting questions that we never thought about.  Just get in and drive, choose a destination and if a light goes off in the dash you call us here at Custom Auto World to schedule an appointment.   We want our Prospect Park drivers to be informed as always and able to make their choices based on having facts.  This is a big change in the automotive-truck service industry and it really has not hit the news at all, so it is up to us to get you up-to-date and informed.  Here are the facts and where you can find more information!

Easy to access.

Very easy to access, a lot of nice things on the shelves. Waxed nostalgic because I haven't found a nice speed shop in a long time, and if it was nice then they had next to nothing in stock. This place seemed set up for success. - Jack A. (4 star review on Google)

Why Your Car Squeals When You Start It

engine_belt

One of the most annoying sounds known to man or woman is a loud squeal every time you start your car, truck, or SUV.  It's got to be a belt, right?   Those of us who have experienced a belt squealing, know how irritating it can be. Every time you start your car, you have to listen to the engine scream for several seconds while everyone in the parking lot stares at you. No fun. It is a sure sign that you need to make an appointment at the shop here at Custom Auto World in Prospect Park PA to get it fixed! 

But what exactly is it and what does it really mean?  Is it really important?  The noise is coming from the drive belt up front, one or more of which run your alternator, AC, water pump, etc. It may squeal only when cold, only the first time you start it for the day, only for a second, or it may never seem to stop. Any amount is too much, however, and it’s something that’s a quick and easy fix - not to mention it’ll save you from getting stranded with a broken belt.  In most cases, the belt simply needs to be replaced and tightened to the right specification. In some instances, other issues are at fault. Your tensioner may be bad, a pulley may be locked up or bent, or fluids could be leaking onto the belt. If that’s the case, our technicians will know exactly what to do; don’t worry.  We will get the answers quickly and knowing what it is faster will help us fix the problem before it gets too bad many times.

No matter your repair or maintenance needs, we’ve got you covered. If you have a noisy belt that’s driving you crazy, let us take care of it for you...before it becomes a costly job.  It will save you the stress of listening to it every time you start your engine and reduce those repair bills. For the best auto service shop in Prospect Park, PA, call or stop by Custom Auto World today.
