Checking a vehicle for fault codes with one of our computer diagnostic scan tools

Diagnostics

We have invested and continue to invest in the training, tools, information and back up needed to keep us ahead in this ever increasing field of automotive servicing. We have two high quality scan tools and a high quality scope to help us diagnose any electrical fault your vehicle may have.

We are members of the highly regarded YES! Automotive diagnostic network of Australasia and are committed to on-going training and up skilling of all our staff to keep us up to date with the latest technology. This saves you time and money because having highly trained and skilled technicians right here on your door step means you don’t have to go out of the area for diagnostics of electrical faults.

We can diagnose and repair faults with systems such as:

  • Anti-lock brakes (ABS)
  • Air bags (SRS)
  • Electronic Fuel injection (EFI)
  • Automatic transmission control
  • Common rail electronic diesel injection
  • Traction control
  • Electronic stability program (ESP)
  • Check engine lights
  • Misfires
  • Poor or erratic idle
  • Poor fuel economy
  • Hard starting

The diagnostic process involves connecting a scan tool and checking codes from your vehicles’ on-board computers, this can lead us directly to the fault or if further diagnosis is needed we’re able to use a scope for extremely fast and accurate measurements.

Diagnostics

Checking engine sensors with a high speed scope enables us to find complex faults quickly and efficiently

Transmission Flush

We have a Transmission flush machine to enable us to flush all of the fluid from your automatic transmission.

Just like engine oil the transmission oil needs replacing periodically as the oil gets contaminated with use, towing heavy loads such as boats is hard on your transmission and can cause it to overheat or slip, replacing the oil is needed more often if you tow regularly.

This extends the life of your transmission, improves shift quality and can save you expensive repairs.

Transmission Flush Equipment

Our automatic transmission flush machine enables 99% of the old fluid to be replaced quickly and keeps your transmission in top condition avoiding costly repairs

Batteries

We stock a wide range of high quality Exide automotive batteries at competitive prices and have full testing and charging facilities. We can recommend and supply the correct battery for any requirement.

Power steering Flush

We also have a power steering flush machine to change the oil in your power steering system, flushing the fluid will extend the life of the steering components such as the steering rack and pump and smooth out heavy steering and help to avoid costly repairs.

Trailers / Caravans / Horse floats

As well as WOF’s, we can perform all electrical, structural, wheel bearings, suspension and brake repairs needed.
