Automatic Transmission

Automatic Transmissions need servicing regularly and typically fail due to internally overheating. This is usually a direct result of poor maintenance.

Automatic Transmission Servicing will help extend the life of your transmission and in most cases provide smoother gear changes.

CV Joints

CV Joints are a critical part of your drive line. They transmit the power from the gear box to the wheels. If you start to hear a knocking sound when you turn a corner, you might need a replacement.

Exhaust & Mufflers

A clean vehicle exhaust system is a sign that your vehicle is running well. If your vehicle exhaust seems loud or is unduly smoking, it's best to get it checked out; especially as a leaking system can lead to carbon monoxide fumes being released inside your vehicle.

Oil & Filter

You should have an Oil change regularly; regardless of how many kilometers the vehicle has driven. If a vehicle is not used much, the oil in the engine still needs to be flushed and replaced.

Suspension, Shocks & Steering

Suspension keeps tyres in contact with the road surface, and eliminates road shock; the Shock Absorbers are a key part of the suspension system.

If your vehicle is veering or wandering, or if you can hear noises when your vehicle is turning or going over bumps, you may have a suspension issue or a steering issue.

Tyres and Wheel Alignment

Tread and tyre pressure are the two critical factors to tyre safety. Tyre tread will help your vehicle to grip the road surface when braking and cornering. Driving on incorrectly inflated tyres will use more fuel, and wear tyres out very quickly, while driving on over-inflated tyres can affect vehicle handling and overall wear.

Vehicle Air-Conditioning

Vehicle Air-Conditioning systems need servicing approximately every 2 years (most air conditioning systems lose approxiamtely 10-15% per year of refrigerant gas).

This service involves discharging, recharging & lubricating your refrigerant system. Also testing your air conditioning compressor oil if applicable & changing if necessary.
