Air Conditioning Service/Re-Gas from $265.00

What's Involved:    Inspect all air conditioning belts, hoses and connection. Reclaim refrigerant and evacuate system. Re-Gas air conditioning, check system pressures and performance. Check for leaks.

When would I need this?      When your air conditioning isn't getting cold or as cold as it used to.

Note: If an air conditioning system loses it's performance due to loss of gas, it indicates there is a system leak. Legislation now requires that the leak be eliminated before the system is refilled. If the leak turns out to be something minor component failure then the repair is included in the cost of the service. Anything more and we will be in contact with the customer for permission before we proceed.

Air Conditioning Retrofit from $390.00

What's Involved:    Reclamation of refrigerant. Complete flushing of air-conditioning system to remove any and all impurities. Renewal of charge port adaptors. Renewal of receiver/dryer (air con filter). Air conditioning service.

When would I need this?    If your air conditioning system requires service and/or repair and is still configured to operate on R12 gas.  In 1993 legislation banned the manufacture of R12 gas due to ozone depleting substances and a replacement gas R134a was then made available for the automotive industry. R12 has different operating properties to R134a and must be completely removed from the system before any repairs and/service can commence. Any car's built prior to 1993 will require this service prior to any  air-conditioning service.

Note: An Air Conditioning Service is included in the retrofit price.

Brakes: Front Brake Pads Renewal $125.00

What's Involved:    Removal and refit of front wheels. Removal of brake calipers (if applicable) and the service & inspection of both calipers. Renewal of brake pads. Road test vehicle.

When would I need this?     When the brake pads fitted to the front of the vehicle have worn to their minimum point. Brake pads are designed to wear and occasional renewal is not uncommon.

Note: Brakes are an area where we pay particular attention to quality. We will only fit a premium brand of brake pads to your car. For this reason we may be slightly dearer than some of our competition but what price do you put on your brakes? Ask the cheaper providers what brand of brake pad they fit.

Brakes: Front Brake Service $220.00

What's Involved:    Removal and refit of front wheels. Removal of brake calipers to machine the disc brake rotors, service & inspection of both calipers. Clean, repack and refit wheel bearing (if applicable) and renewal of brake pads. Road test vehicle.

When would I need this?     If the disc rotor surface is not suitable for efficient braking. Some symptoms may include brake squealing, brake noise and steering wheel shudder on brake application. On occasion a disc rotor surface may require machining based on a visual inspection and show no other symptoms.

Note: Brake disc rotors are designed to wear also but at a much lower rate than that of brake pads. This causes the discs to get thinner and once a disc rotor reaches "minimum thickness" it must be replaced in order to maintain safe, efficient brakes. Wearing brake pads to the point of "metal on metal" (excessive grinding noise) dramatically reduces the life of a disc brake rotor and in several cases the disc rotors had to be renewed solely due to the damage caused by the worn brake pad.

Brakes: Rear Brake Pads Renewal  $125.00

What's Involved:    Removal and refit of rear wheels. Removal of hand brake mechanism and brake calipers (if applicable) and the service&inspection of both calipers. Renewal of brake pads. Road test vehicle.

When would I need this?     When the brake pads fitted to the rear of the vehicle have worn to their minimum point. Brake pads are designed to wear and occasional renewal is not uncommon.

Brakes: Rear Brake Service (Drums) from $260.00

What's Involved:    Removal and refit of rear wheels. Service & inspection of all drum brake hardware. Renewal of wheel cylinders and bleed rear brakes. Clean, repack and refit wheel bearing (if applicable) and renewal of brake linings. Adjustment of handbrake.  Road test vehicle.

When would I need this?     When the brake pads fitted to the rear of the vehicle have worn to their minimum point. Brake linings are designed to wear and occasional renewal is not uncommon.

Note: If the drum rotor surface is not suitable for efficient braking then the brake drums must also be machined. Some symptoms may include brake squealing, brake noise and a shudder felt through the rear of the car on brake application. On occasion a brake drum surface may require machining based on a visual inspection and show no other symptoms. Brake drums are designed to wear also but at a much lower rate than that of brake linings. This causes the drums to wear oversize and once a brake drum reaches "maximum diameter" it must be replaced in order to maintain safe, efficient brakes. Brake drums do not wear as quickly as brake discs. Wearing brake linings to the point of "metal on metal" (excessive grinding noise) dramatically reduces the life of a brake drum and in several cases the drums had to be renewed solely due to the damage caused by the worn brake lining. We strongly recommend the renewal of the hydraulic wheel cylinders at the time of brake lining renewal to prevent future brake fluid leaks.

Brakes: Rear Brake Service (Discs)$220.00

What's Involved:    Removal and refit of rear wheels. Removal of handbrake mechanism and brake calipers to machine the disc brake rotors, service & inspection of both calipers. Clean, repack and refit wheel bearing (if applicable) and renewal of brake pads. Road test vehicle.

Brake Fluid Flush $49.95

What's Involved:    Draining and cleaning of the brake master cylinder. Flushing and bleeding of all brake lines and hoses. Road test vehicle and recheck for leaks.

When do I need this?     According to the manufacturers every 2 years regardless of mileage. A visual inspection and simple 30 second test of the brake fluid can determine it's condition and moisture content.

Note: Brake fluid is "Hygroscopic" which means it absorbs moisture from the surrounding air. 1mL of water/moisture absorbed into 1000mL of new brake fluid can reduce the boiling point by 80% thus reducing the braking efficiency of a vehicle under heavy braking to ZERO. Regardless of age we only recommend brake fluid renewal if the visual inspection fails or the moisture content is high to save unnecessary expense to the customer. If it doesn't need changing, we don't change it.

Cooling System Power Flush  $135.00

What's Involved:     Drain cooling system and refill with flushing agent. Removal of thermostat and connection of high pressure equipment to perform a high pressure system reverse flush. Renew the thermostat and refill with coolant, pressure test cooling system and check for leaks. Visually inspect cooling system including water pump, drive belts, core plugs and all hoses. Run engine and bleed cooling system. Check thermostatically controlled fan operation (if fitted).

When do I need this?     When the coolant fails a visual inspection or the glycol content (simple 30 second test) of the coolant falls below minimum specifications. A power flush is required when the condition of the coolant suggests that a low pressure flush will not remove all traces of old coolant and scale from the engine.

Note: Mixing of different varieties of coolants can be fatal to an engine's overall wellbeing. It is essential to remove any trace of old coolants before new coolant is added.

Cooling System: Radiator Service from $290.00

What's Involved:     Removal of all connecting hoses and fan assembly to remove the radiator. Disassemble radiator and manually "rod-out" and clean radiator core. Perform a low pressure system reverse flush. Refill with coolant, pressure test cooling system and check for leaks. Visually inspect cooling system including radiator, water pump, drive belts, core plugs and all hoses. Run engine and bleed cooling system. Check thermostatically controlled fan operation (if fitted). 

When do I need this?     When it is suspected that the radiator may be internally blocked or partially blocked. some symptoms include: overheating especially when the vehicle is stationary, with the air conditioning on, or excessive thermo fan operation.

Note: The radiator has the smallest galleries or tubes of the entire cooling system so any impurities or contaminants will build up in the radiator first causing a blockage. Unfortunately some manufacturers are fitting radiators to vehicles that are not repairable! In this case we recommend fitting a non-genuine or aftermarket radiator to overcome this problem should it ever arise again in the future. Mixing of different varieties of coolants can be fatal to an engine's overall wellbeing. It is essential to remove any trace of old coolants before new coolant is added.

Camshaft/Timing Belt Renewal from $150.00

What's Involved:     Removal of all drive belts, harmonic balancer, engine mounts (FWD), and the timing cover to renew the timing/camshaft drive belt. Inspection of all drive pulleys and seals. Seals are replaced if any doubt is suspected to prevent future problems.

When do I need this?     Depending on the vehicle, timing belts require renewal at certain mileage related intervals i.e.: Holden Astra  60,000kms, Hyundai 90,000kms, Mitsubishi & Mazda 90,000-100,000kms, Toyota 150,000kms. We also recommend renewing of the belt if it is removed for other reasons and it is over 50% of it's normal serviceable life or the age of the belt is not known.

Note: A timing belt's purpose is to keep the top half of the engine in time with the bottom half and should the timing belt fail, the engine will suddenly stop and WILL NOT restart. In some cases the bottom half of the engine will collide internally with the top half causing severe engine damage. For this reason we feel it is vital that timing belt replacement intervals be adhered to strongly.

Clutch Replacement  $POA

What's Involved:     Removal of drive-shafts, engine mounts, gearshift mechanism, all cable and wiring to remove the gearbox. renew the clutch pressure plate, clutch plate, thrust bearing and spigot bearing (if fitted). If required the flywheel is also machined. Gearbox oil is drained and refilled. check and adjust clutch, road test vehicle.

When do I need this?     Clutch faults come in many different varieties for example, clutch slipping (engine revs without vehicle speed increasing), clutch shudder (vehicle shakes on clutch disengagement), clutch lag (clutch feels normal but gear difficult to select), plus a variety of noises from different components. Another symptom of a worn clutch is a "friction point" in an incorrect position and the clutch at maximum adjustment.

Note: We only machines flywheels if necessary. If not necessary every flywheel is linished (polished) at no charge before clutch refit.

Constant Velocity (CV) Boot Replacement $120.00

What's Involved:    Removal of the wheel and dismantling of the suspension to remove the driveshaft. Removal of the CV joint to renew the protective boot. Clean and repack of the CV joint and refit to vehicle. Degrease effected area and road test vehicle.

When do I need this?     As soon as it's detected that the boot has failed. CV boots regularly split and it is a common issue with front-wheel-drive vehicles. The sooner the boot can be renewed the better chance no damage to the CV joint will occur.

Note: CV boots protect a CV joint. If a boot fails, this allows dirt, mud, water etc to enter the CV joint prematurely wearing the joint out.

Cylinder Head/Cylinder Head Gasket Service/Repair  $POA  - Due to the nature of the task, an accurate quote can not be given until the engine has been dismantled and all effected components inspected.

What's Involved:   
Removal of both manifolds, the valve train, the valve train drive to remove the actual cylinder head. The cylinder head is then X-Rayed and pressure tested for cracks and overall condition. At this point an accurate quote and job duration can be given. The cylinder head is then repaired and serviced. Refit cylinder heat and reconnect all ancillaries with all new gaskets. Refill will coolant, pressure test cooling system and check for leaks. Renewed thermostat, spark plugs, change engine oil and filter. Run engine and bleed cooling system check and adjust engine tune. Road test vehicle.

When do I need this: When an engine is showing signs of an internal coolant leak, after severe overheating or coolant loss or there is other evidence to suggest a possible cylinder head problem.

Note: Cylinder head gasket failures happen for two reasons. One reason is that the cylinder head itself had failed or corroded. The most common reason for cylinder head failure is due to engine overheating caused by another component in the cooling system failing. An engine is made of two totally different masses of metal (cylinder head and an engine block) joined by a head gasket in the middle. When an engine overheats the two parts expand and react quite differently. Due to the different rates of expansion the gasket in the middle isn't able to compensate and thus starts to leak. Due to most modern cylinder heads being made of an alloy, it is extremely rare that when a head gasket fails the cylinder head does not suffer any damage as a result.

Once a head gasket fails, several on-going symptoms may occur with the main symptom being overheating and coolant loss. If the engine experiences constant overheating, the engine will be damaged every time it is driven.

Some symptoms of a head gasket failure can include (but not limited to): Overheating, Coolant loss, "Milky" coloured engine oil, "Milky" coloured coolant, bubbles appearing in coolant, excessive moisture from the tailpipe, rough engine running (especially on initial cold start-up) and visible stains. Generally head gasket failure can be diagnosed with a simple test.

Electronic Tune (Tune-Up)  $99.00

What's Involved:     Perform an electronic tune. Replace spark plugs and ignition points (if applicable), inspect air     and fuel filter condition and replace if required (not incl in price). Clean the throttle body. Perform cylinder balance test, check exhaust emissions. Road test. Platinum plugs not included.

When do I need this?    When the engine is in poor running condition or the interval since the last Tune-up exceeds manufacturer's specifications.

Note: It is a common misbelief that all running rough problems can be solved by a tune-up. This is not true and we would rather you spend money on the specific cause of the running rough rather than spend unnecessary money on something which "may or may not" fix the problem. So if your engine is running rough, allow us to diagnose the problem first. It doesn't cost anything for an initial diagnosis and if a Tune-Up is required then that is all we will recommend.

Pre-Purchase / Warranty Inspection $88.00

What's Involved:    Perform a general inspection of vehicle in regards to pre-purchase or vehicle warranty. Items requiring attention are listed below;

When do I need this?
    It is always a good idea to have a vehicle thoroughly inspected before you buy it or before a used-car warranty expires.

Note:     This is the exact same inspection that some of the larger (one insurance company in particular) charges 3 and 4 times the amount for. The charge is for time taken, in that if we find something severe in the first 10 minutes, then this is all the time you pay for. Unfortunately we are only able to report items that are visible at time of inspection and cant be held responsible for events which may occur 6 months after the time of inspection.

Rocker Cover Gasket Renewal from $110.00

What's Involved:    Removal of the rocker cover to renew the rocker cover gasket. Run the engine and check for leaks. Degrease the engine top and bottom. Road test vehicle and recheck for leaks.

When do I need this?
 
When the rocker cover is leaking oil.

Note: The rocker cover is the lid or cover on the very top of the engine. When a rocker cover leaks, the oil then runs down and can cover the whole engine in oil posing a fire hazard.

Throttle Body Service from $49.00

What's Involved:    Remove and refit EFI. air-intake ducts. Clean throttle body assembly and attached connections. Lubricate throttle shaft and linkages. Road test vehicle.

When do I need this?    If you have a "sticky" accelerator, or the engine idle lacks quality you may have a dirty throttle body. We also recommend doing this as a regular maintenance item and we include it in our Major Service.

Note: The only reason I have priced a throttle body service "from" $49.00 is due to some vehicles (e.g. V6 Commodore) require the removal and dismantling of the throttle body before it can be thoroughly cleaned. If your vehicle doesn't require the removal of the throttle body then the price is fixed at $49.00.

Wheel Balance Service $26.00

What's Involved:    Perform wheel balance service. Check all four tyres for fit, roundness and run out. Dynamically balance. Refit and rotate the wheels as required. Road test vehicle.

When do I need this?    If you feel a shimmy or vibration through the steering wheel (*not to be confused with a brake shudder) at particular road speeds. If you feel a vibration through the seat which feels like it is coming through the body or back of the car.

Note: *A brake shudder and wheel balance are two separate problems with similar symptoms. To identify which is the cause a brake shudder will only occur when your foot is on the brake at all speeds and wheel balance problems will generally occur at particular speeds regardless of brake position.
