Specialized Truck and Auto Service approaches caring for your car or truck from the ground up. That means that before we look over the internal components of your ride we take time to make sure that you're working with a solid foundation. Our comprehensive undercar inspections and services cover an important area of your car that can easily be neglected and give the foundation of your vehicle the care and attention it deserves.
Avoid disaster by coming in and having your undercarriage checked out today. Call us at 281-883-8362 or visit us in Humble, TX so we can schedule an appointment to ensure your car is in tip-top shape!
Our competitively priced undercar services include:
Wheel alignment (or simply alignment) is standard car maintenance that involves adjusting the angles of the wheels so that they are set to the manufacturer's specifications. The main purpose is to let the suspension and the steering systems operate at their desired angles - this reduces tire wear. Alignment is a complicated process and not all mechanics get it right. To have experts handle your car's alignment, visit Specialized Truck and Auto Service.
Anti-lock brakes prevent wheel lock-up when rapidly decelerating by automatically modulating the brake pressure during an emergency stop. With this system, the wheels are able to maintain traction with the road while braking. Failure of the anti-lock brakes could lead to an increase in the risks of multiple vehicle crashes and run-off road crashes. To avoid this, have your anti-lock brake system checked and repaired by experts. At Specialized Truck and Auto Service, we have anti-lock brake experts who will examine and repair your faulty ABS - keeping you safe.
Brake System Flush
Brake fluid is hygroscopic (it absorbs moisture). The absorbed moisture lowers the fluid's boiling point. It also corrodes the lines and cylinders. With the lowered boiling point, the brake fluid could boil during braking which makes you lose braking ability. Although this is an extreme scenario, it does happen in heavy braking. To reduce the effects of the absorbed moisture, auto manufacturers recommend that you have a brake flush done periodically. A brake system flush involves the replacement of used and contaminated fluid with fresh fluid. With Specialized Truck and Auto Service's quick lube services, you will have a brake system flush performed by brake experts. Call 281-883-8362 or visit Specialized Truck and Auto Service today.
A brake is a mechanical device for slowing or stopping a vehicle (usually by means of friction). In short, a brake inhibits your car's motion. It lets you stop the car whenever and wherever you choose. Brakes are one of the most important parts of a motor vehicle. Without them, you would not be able to stop the car. If your vehicle's brakes are having issues, consider having them worked on. Brake experts at Specialized Truck and Auto Service can work on your car's brakes to ensure you have a safe drive.
A chassis is the car's internal framework that supports the body and other parts like the wheels, engine, transmission, driveshaft, differential, and suspension. A weak or damaged chassis will translate to a weak car. To have a strong and properly working vehicle, have your car's chassis checked for defects. At Specialized Truck and Auto Service, there are experienced undercar service providers who can work on your chassis.
A motor vehicle exhaust system is piping used to guide exhaust gasses away from the engine to the outdoors. Although the exhaust system's main purpose is to guide exhaust gases from the engine to the outdoors, it can be modified to increase engine power, reduce pollution, and reduce noise. To achieve this, you need to invest in a custom-made exhaust system.
At Specialized Truck and Auto Service in Humble, TX 77396, we can create a custom-made stainless steel exhaust for your vehicle. We specialize in custom performance exhaust systems, stainless steel mufflers, mufflers, exhaust kits, racing mufflers, and exhaust accessories for a huge and diverse range of vehicles: customized cars, standard road cars, classic cars, kit cars, 4x4's, imports, and racecars.
The differential is a car part that compensates for the difference in travel distance between the inner wheels and outer wheels when the vehicle is turning. Due to the differential's position in most non-four-wheel-drive (FWD) vehicles (located at the rear and under the car), it does not get any of the star treatment the engine gets. The one thing that every car owner needs to know is that failure of the differential will mean failure of the car. To save the differential from failure, you need to have differential fluid changed every 30,000 to 50,000 miles. Changing the oil on the differential is as important as changing the car's engine oil. Although checking and changing differential oil is pretty easy, you need to visit an auto shop to get a comprehensive differential flush. For differential flush services, visit or call Specialized Truck and Auto Service in Humble, TX 77396 today.
The differential transfers the engine power to the wheels. One important function of the differential is to pass on power to the wheels while allowing them to rotate at different speeds - thus the name differential. When turning, the outer wheels travel a larger distance than the inner wheels do (also the front wheels travel a longer distance than the rear wheels). This means that all four wheels travel at different speeds during a turn and this is where the differential comes in to help. To make sure your vehicle's differentials are working properly, have them checked regularly. Contact Specialized Truck and Auto Service today for differentials examination and servicing.
A driveline is a part of your motor vehicle that connects the engine and the transmission to the wheel axles. The driveline consists of the parts of the powertrain less the engine and transmission. Failure of the driveline means that the car would not move since energy cannot be transmitted from the engine to the wheel axles. Therefore, make sure that your car's driveline is regularly inspected and serviced. And, at Specialized Truck and Auto Service, you can have the driveline serviced by experts.
In a motor vehicle, an exhaust system is a piping used to guide exhaust fumes away from the engine - usually to the rear of the vehicle. A properly functioning exhaust system not only sounds better, it is better - for you, your car, and the environment. Specialized Truck and Auto Service has expert technicians to service your car's exhaust system.
Shocks (or shock absorbers) are mechanical devices designed to smooth out rough roads. The devices do this by converting kinetic energy to another form of energy. Properly working shocks reduce the effect of traveling over rough ground, leading to improved ride quality and vehicle handling. When shocks develop problems, driving on poorly leveled roads becomes unpleasant, and your vehicle may sway when turning. To have your vehicle's shocks diagnosed and repaired, visit Specialized Truck and Auto Service today.
Much like a shock absorber (shocks), your car's struts provide a dampening effect as you travel over a road's surface. By absorbing the shock of the road, struts allow passengers to ride in a car without constant and uncomfortable motion. Struts work a bit differently than shocks in that they provide structural support for your car's suspension. This means that struts support your car's weight, unlike shocks which only regulate the speed at which the weight is transferred. Struts usually last around 50,000 or 60,000 miles. This is simply because the damping characteristics of the parts gradually deteriorate over time. Call Specialized Truck and Auto Service at 281-883-8362 if you have questions about the struts on your car. Our expert technicians will diagnose any problems and help you make an informed decision about repairs.
As tires get older, they lose traction and deteriorate from the inside out, increasing the likelihood of a tire bursting. This can cause a rapid loss of control of your vehicle. To have a better performing vehicle, you need to make sure the tires are in good condition. For all your tire needs, contact Specialized Truck and Auto Service today.
I called a day a head to make sure i would be able to get my car?s state inspection done during my lunch and they said of course! The next day I showed up and they were immediately assisting me. Very kind and energetic team. I was in and out within 20 min. It was fantastic work and felt appreciated because they were considerate of my time. Keep up the good work!
Kevin gives top of the line service. He his through and honest in all the work he has done for us. Highly recommend if you need anything done to your vehicles.
These guys are awesome! Went in for the annual vehicle inspection and mentioned another problem that several others had looked at but could not fix. Kevin jumped on it and had it resolved in ten minutes. Amazing service and I will definitely be back. Thanks Kevin!
I took my truck in thinking it needed a tune up, but Kevin took a look at it first and said he didn?t see anything wrong with it. He even test drove it to see if he could hear anything. Fortunately, it didn?t need a tune up or anything else. He could have just sold me something, but he didn?t. He was very honest and very trustworthy. I will definitely be taking my truck to him for any work that it will need in the future. I definitely recommend him to everyone! Kevin and his team will treat you right for sure!
Outstanding customer service! Very honest and all repairs were completed on time! I would recommend this repair shop for any make or model, ask for KEVIN, he?s the Owner and a great guy! Highly recommended and thanks Kevin for the great customer service!!
Kevin and his team are wonderful! They are knowledgeable, caring, and TRUSTWORTHY professionals who exemplify customer service. As a mother, it is of the utmost importance that I have reliable transportation. Having been taken advantage of by so many mechanics in the past, I'd become a little leery about taking my car to be serviced. Thank God I don't have to feel that way anymore! My dad recommended this shop, which is now where my family will entrust our vehicles for all services. Thank you Kevin!
My gf and I moved here a few months ago and found ourselves in search of an affordable and reliable mechanic. Well needless to say we were lucky to discover this shop. Kevin and his crew took excellent care of us and were very reasonable in price. Same day service and kept me updated throughout the repair. I highly recommend these guys.
Excellent service! Mr. Kevin was quick and very thorough in explaining the issue I had with my Acura TL. His prices are fair and he has integrity, so there?s no need to worry about being ripped off. I highly recommend using him for your auto repair needs!
We are very pleased with the service provided by Specialized Truck & Auto Service. We like that we can drop off our truck and we know that Kevin will take care of whatever is wrong with it. Above all, Kevin is a very honest man. I highly recommend Specialized Truck and Auto Service.
I moved to Tx in 2012. My daughter recommended Kevin to do work on my 1997 Ford Ranger. Being an older vehicle, I had several jobs done. Each time Kevin did a great job. He has always been dependable. Once he fixed my A/C and it stopped working again. He checked it out to find that the part he had put in was defective. It was under warranty so we didn?t have to pay for it. Kevin also put the second part on at no cost to me. He stands behind his work. I believe he also loves his line of work. He is fair and upfront. I recommend him highly.
Don't waste your time looking at the reviews of all the other auto shops in houston. This guy is 30 minutes from my house and well worth the commute. He was transparent with quoting, stuck to it, got it done fast and extremely friendly. You can tell the minute you arrive the guys here are like family. They all love their jobs and it shows. I like a mechanic who cares more about taking care of the customer than being greedy and making more money. This business has all 5 star reviews for a reason. Look no further.
Kevin and the team are reliable and do top notch work. He LISTENS to his customers and takes care of the issues they are concerned about and informs you of other items that are found for your review. And there is no pressure. Great man, great place, and reasonable pricing. Highly recommend.
