A critical component for your safety, brakes should always be checked if you are experiencing any problems. While a little noise is normal for brakes, if you hear grinding, screeching or any other unusual noise, as well as any unusual feeling like pulling or vibration, this could be a sign of something much more serious. We would recommend to see our team for specialist advice right away. The alignment can also be checked during the regular maintenance check-ups.
A car’s electrical system is a very important component and ensures the smooth operation of your vehicle. Unfortunately, many car owners tend to neglect their electrical systems because they’re not as obviously in need of maintenance and regular care as the car’s moving parts. Some of the most common signs of problems with the electrical system is that the vehicle will simply not start. While most of the time this may be a sign of a bad battery, the problem could also lie within the starter or alternator. Other signs are malfunction in the car’s lights, such as flickering or low illumination. If you suspect there is an issue with your vehicle’s electrical system, please ensure you talk to our team for specialist advice and support.
Steering and Suspension
The steering and suspension systems are important for both your safety and comfort when driving, as they ensure a smooth ride as your car travels over bumpy roads. The two systems are directly related to each other. It’s a good idea to schedule regular inspections of your steering and suspension systems, as it is usually easier, cheaper and safer to discover and fix a problem before it snowballs, causing further issues. It is recommended that you visually inspect your steering and suspension systems if you notice any symptoms, including nose dives, squats or rolls, bouncing over bumps, an unusually bumpy ride, oversteer or understeer or the car pulling to one side. Inspecting your steering and suspension systems requires a range of specific tools and specialist technical knowledge. As these systems are critical to your safety, it is vital that these safety inspections and repairs are carried out by a certified technician. If you require such support, please ensure you talk to our team for specialist advice.
The drive train part of your vehicle takes the power produced by the engine and transmission and delivers it to your wheels. The drive train system should be inspected for wear at every oil change. Routine maintenance of the transfer case and differential fluid is important as well.Talk to our team for specialist advice and support.
Maintaining your vehicle's cooling system is essential to prolonging the life and efficiency of your engine. The coolant system dissipates engine heat into the ambient air, in order to prevent overheating and to keep your vehicle running safely. A coolant flush and fill represents basic maintenance for your cooling system, and will help ensure maximum performance from your car's heating and cooling systems. What usually needs to be checked is the radiator, thermostat, water pump, fan and coolant. Talk to our team for specialist advice and support.
Transmission fluid plays a critical role in how a transmission functions and and it influences the car longevity. Like engine oil, transmission fluid should be checked and changed on a regular basis; however, the interval is different for all vehicles and dependent on the transmission and fluid type as well as usage habits. Changing transmission fluid is not as simple as changing engine oil and should be handled by a service technician or someone with a thorough understanding of transmissions. While maintenance is key to auto part longevity, being aware of any bangs, whines or groans from the transmission, as well as smells, will help head off any problems at an early stage. If you have noticed any problems, we recommend seeing our team for specialist advice. The transmission fluid can also be checked during the regular maintenance check-ups.
Just as important, even if not always immediately visible, issues such as alignment can lead to problems steering the vehicle and uneven wearing of the tires.
