Years Of Experience

Looking for automotive repairs?


Air conditioning

We’ll investigate why your AC is blowing out hot air, or other common problems. Checks will be made of rubber tubing and seals, refrigerant gas leaks, and other reasons your AC is faulty. Our AC technicians will replace faulty parts, regas, and ensure your AC is airtight and keeping you cool as it should.

Oil Leak Inspection

An oil leak may be a sign your car needs major repairs. You can expect us to:

  • Identify the fluid and corresponding issues (by the colour)
  • Give you a detailed report: with cause and quote
  • Repair the oil / fluid leak

Transmission/Diff and Clutch

Your car’s transmission transfers the power from your engine to the wheels. The parts involved are the most complex in your car. We have the skills, experience, and tools to accurately diagnose, fix, and service your clutch and transmission.

Spark Plugs

Your spark plugs ignite air and fuel inside your petrol engine. These can wear out – if not replaced, the engine can misfire. You’ll notice this when your car seems to use more fuel than usual. We’ll:

  • Replace the spark plugs for each cylinder
  • Remove the intake manifold (in some cars) to access the spark plugs

Wheels & Tyres

We’ll make sure your tires are wearing evenly and change them if they’re worn. This will give you better traction on the road, a smoother drive, and maintain your safety.

  • Tyre supply, fit, and replacement
  • Wheel supply and alignment

Brakes that work are crucial to the safety of your car -
and your family. Our brake service includes


Thorough inspection all components: hoses, pads, linings, discs, drums, brake fluid


Brake system flush: electronic brake fluid tester identifies fluid condition


Brake disc checks for wear - and machined when changed


Replace worn parts such as brake discs or brake pads


Timing Belt/Chain

This is a key part of your car’s engine and can be costly – but crucial to fix. If the belt or chain stretches, breaks, or wears out, it will most likely ruin your engine. To access it, we may need to remove the front section of your car – or lower the engine.
This is why a fix can takes up to 8 hours to do it well, depending on your make and model.
Our experienced mechanics will need to:

  • Strip the front of the engine
  • Check seals, pulleys, and water pump
  • Change the timing belt, plus kit if needed
  • Set the camshaft/valve timing
  • Test it all

We may find that your motor pump and coolant may need changing. The repair time can be hard to estimate – but we always keep you updated, and we’ll quote you a fixed price so you never need to worry about unexpected costs.

Timing Belt Service

The timing belt is a key part of your car’s engine and although it can be costly, is it crucial to address it as soon as a problem is detected. It is a critical component in keeping your car running efficiently and not replacing it when required can cause further damage or ruin your engine completely.

Timing belt replacements are carried out at regular intervals as per manufacturer recommendations. You can find out when your belt needs to be replaced by checking your owners-manual or during a regular car service.

If your belt isn’t due to be changed, but you notice any of the following, it may be a sign you need a replacement sooner rather than later, and you should get it checked by a mechanic:  

  • Knocking sound in your engine
  • Low oil pressure
  • Overheating
  • Rough idling
  • Engine shuts off or won’t crank 

Our experienced technicians are able to help you with the supply, fitting and installation of your new timing belt, keeping your car running smoothly and helping you avoid further issues.

Working with brands like Dayco, Aisin, & Gates we guarantee only the highest quality parts for your vehicle.
