Cambelt Replacement

 Cambelts (timing belts) are a VITAL part of your engine’s components, and these need to be replaced from time to time.
All manufacturers have different replacement intervals so feel free to give us a call or stop in and we can check if yours has been done, or the interval it needs to be done at.

Clutch Replacement

These are all signs of a bad/worn clutch and could require replacement or adjustment. Feel free to stop in and we can give you an obligation free check/quote.

Gearbox Repairs

Clunking, whining, crunching?
These are all pretty obvious signs that something is wrong however even slight noise can sometimes be fixed before it becomes a major repair.

Transmission Repairs

Most automatic transmissions have a long life fluid, but they still need maintaining. Harsh shifting, gears being held in longer than they should are early signs your transmission is due for a service.

Cooling Systems

Car smells hot after a long drive? Water, green, blue, pink, purple liquid dripping from under your vehicle? These are all signs something isn’t quite right with your cooling system and could cause a major engine problem if not looked into promptly.

As a rule of thumb, a battery in a vehicle that is exposed to the weather ( carport, driveway ) usually last 3-4 years but can last up to 6-8 years A vehicle that is garaged and not exposed to the weather normally lasts 5-6 years but can last up to 10-12 years. we can check the condition of your battery and advise if it begins to show some signs of failure and prevent a flat battery with a new one.
