Brake Repairs

If your brakes are squealing, pulling the vehicle to one side or making your steering wheel shake, then it’s time to see the team.
Brakes can degrade slowly due to simple wear and tear, which can make it difficult for vehicle owners to see the changes. We can test your braking system and make any repairs necessary. Brake hoses and fluid can also be checked and replaced if necessary.

If you have any problems, or notice changes in your vehicle’s braking performance, come in and see us. Sometimes it can be a simple case of brake dust causing the brakes to squeal, but our technicians can identify and fix the problem, giving you peace of mind.

Did you know: Heavy braking use can attract moisture into the brake fluid, which can lead to ‘brake fade’? We recommend replacing brake fluid at least every two years.

Radiator Repairs and Radiator Flush

A Radiator is vital to the health of your engine; ensuring that it does not overheat and maintains an optimum operating temperature.

A Radiator cools the liquid that in turns cools your engine, thereby maintaining the correct operating temperature. A Radiator has a large surface area of thin fins for the liquid to pass though, over time these can be damaged by stones, filled with dirt and bugs or the plastic tanks attached to most radiators these days can crack with the constant heating and cooling during normal use.

It is important that with the change of seasons that the correct mixture of coolant to water is used, to little or too much can be a bad thing for your engine

A Radiator Flush cleans out all the sludge and other containments that accumulate in your cars radiator. A Radiator Flush helps to clear this accumulation so that the cooling liquid can flow properly though the radiator and thereby prevent overheating.

 

Cam Bels and Timing Belts

A Cambelt /timing belt is situated in the front or side of your engine behind the plastic cambelt covers.
This belt has been designed to reduce friction and generate more horse power than previous component called the Timing Chain.
This belt should be changed every 100,000kms or 5 years, whatever comes first. In some engines there are 2 belts, a cambelt/timing belt or a balance belt. If you are unsure contact us with your make and model and we can advise you.
