Noise from the car wheels.

Do you hear a strange sound from the wheels - while the vehicle is rolling?  This could be a sign from your brake pads that they are due for at least a inspection, and possible serviced. Well if this is true, we are here at Chumbley's Auto Care are happy to help folks from Indianola and surrounding areas with this problem.    Your brake pads are the important parts that rub against the rotor (or disc) to slow and stop your car when driving in Indianola. They eventually wear down. When your pads are worn too much, they won’t stop your vehicle as well. When the friction material is worn away, metal parts of the pad are exposed and you’ll hear a squeal or grinding sound. That’s when Indianola drivers should replace their brake pads at Chumbley's Autocare. Not only will new pads restore your stopping power, but replacing them on time will prevent damage to the rotor. If your brakes are making noise, ask your Chumbley's Autoca ... read more

Straight and True in Indianola: Wheel Alignment

Most Indianola folks worry about running out of gas or having a breakdown on the side of the road. That is why we practice preventive maintenance on our vehicles — that and to keep our repair bills down. But one important part of preventive maintenance that may get overlooked by drivers in Indianola is a periodic wheel alignment inspection. Poor alignment causes tires to wear rapidly, unevenly or both. This means they will have to be replaced early, and new tires are more expensive than an alignment check in Indianola. Bad alignment can also cause damage to suspension and steering systems, which can be expensive to repair in Indianola. Tire wear on misaligned wheels can also lead to blowouts, which are dangerous, can lead to serious accidents and can seriously damage your vehicle. Also, poor alignment itself can be the cause of an accident since the vehicle may not steer properly. One or more wheels on your vehicle can be knocke ... read more

Air Quality of your vehicles cabin

Air quality has certainly become a hot issue in our modern world. We install air filters on our ventilation systems and in our vacuum cleaners. There's a filter that cleans the air going into our vehicle's engine — so why not one for the air in the passenger compartment? Foreign and domestic vehicle manufacturers haven't been ignoring the issue. Cabin air filters are becoming a standard feature on newer vehicles. These filters can clean particles out of the air down to three microns, which accounts for pollen, dust and most pollutants. Indianola residents who suffer from allergies or have a respiratory disorder should be a lot more comfortable. And even if you don't have a medical need for the filter, the cleaner air in your car just might help you breathe better, figuratively as well as literally. Cabin air filters are still fairly new in the Indianola area, so you'll have to check your vehic ... read more
