We often get asked by clients ‘what’s the best way to keep my car running well?’.
The answer is simple; stick to your scheduled servicing, drive to the weather and road conditions and keep your vehicle clean and tidy.
However, even if you do all these things, your vehicle is a complex machine and things can – and do – go wrong occasionally.
So whether you’re hearing a strange clunking sound, the ignition’s not turning over properly or you’ve simply just reached your next servicing milestone, our expert team offer:
Minor and major servicing, otherwise known as log book servicing, is the schedule your car manufacturer recommends for the long life and smooth running of your vehicle. No matter the make and model of your car, these can be done at any mechanic and do not have to be done by the dealership at which you bought your vehicle. Our servicing includes items such as a grease and oil change, precision diagnostic tune-up, a safety inspection and a report on your cars overall mechanical condition.

Ensure smooth motion and turning. We’ll check your rear axle fluid levels in the differential, as well as the universal joint and centre bearing. If we find any free play we’ll recommend it be replaced.

Cooling system and radiators
Another couple of parts vital to the operation of your car. We’ll pressure test your radiator, inspect hoses for leaks and the radiator cap to ensure it’s properly sealed. We’ll then look at the coolant level and check the water pump for leaks and wear and tear, as well all drive belts for tension and condition.
Make sure your wheels have power! Our automatic transmission service includes the replacement of transmission fluid, cleaning and the replacement or adjustment of filters as required.
Your engine is cool, and so should you be through the summer months. We’ll check the cooling and overall operation, check system pressures and check and adjust the compressor drive belt as needed. Finally, we’ll check and clean the condenser so you’ve got cool air when you need it.

These inspections are carried out in accordance with the rules and regulations set out by VicRoads.
