Qualified Team

 
At Mechanical World, we provide a wide range of servicing on all types of vehicles. Our qualified team of technicians is committed to providing quality work at competitive prices.
 
 

Air Conditioning Repairs

 
Manufacturers recommend your car has the air conditioning serviced every two years. This service includes evacuating the refrigerant gas, replacing the lubricating oil, and testing the system for leaks. Regular maintenance will save you money in the long term and ensure your driving comfort during the hottest months.
 
Over time the refrigerant gas in the car’s air conditioning gradually decreases, slowly leaking from the AC, these systems are designed to leak. Car engines vibrate, pipes move, and the rubber rings expand and contract allowing for the leakage. The leakage can be caused when the system is not in use, during the winter months, drying out the small O-ring seals. This results in a gradual deterioration in performance and air con that doesn’t blow as cold. If this continues, eventually the system will not be able to function at all. Most problems of this type can be fixed easily by having a leak check followed by a complete evacuation and refill of your refrigerant, referred to as a re-gas.

Cooling System Maintenance

 
We can take care of all cooling system maintenance and repairs including:
 
  • Coolant flushing
  • Hoses
  • Radiators
  • Thermostats
  • Mechanical driven and electrical water pumps
  • Electrical repairs such as fans, temperature sensors and computer modules.
 
Rapid advancements have been made in the cooling systems used in the vehicles of today. However, despite technological advances, the principles of the cooling system remain the same. They use liquid that flows through the radiator to remove heat from the engine and other components. This liquid is called coolant and is responsible for preventing corrosion in the system.

It’s recommended to have the coolant changed at specified intervals. Because different manufacturers use different colours to differentiate between formulas, it’s critical not to mix coolants. Using and replacing the correct liquid in your cooling system at the correct intervals helps prevent the engine from over heating. The rubber components in the cooling system also have a life span and will eventually require replacing, even when the coolant is replaced as recommended.
 
 

Logbook Servicing

 
Different elements are scheduled at different times for all logbook servicing. This can include spark plug replacement, new air filter, new fuel filter, brake fluid, coolant, and many other items. We can quote you on logbook servicing, give you a fixed price and provide peace of mind that your new car is being well looked after, according to the manufactures schedule.

Logbook servicing is carried out to the manufacturers’ specifications at specific intervals. Our qualified mechanics use parts and lubricants that meet or exceed OEM standards, enabling you to maintain your new car warranty.

Motor Vehicle Servicing

 
Is your car out of warranty, due for a service, or maybe missed a service or two? Our qualified mechanics can use their expertise to determine what is required, by combining their knowledge with the manufacturers recommended maintenance schedule.
 
Manufacturer recommended maintenance schedules are written for specific conditions and are our first call in ensuring your car remains efficient, safe and reliable. Our skilled mechanics carry out a full inspection of your vehicle before giving you a report on the issues that will need attention in the future. This ensures the maintenance on your vehicle is tailored to what you actually need.

Timing Belt Replacement

 
Being a common maintenance issue, we can carry out a complete timing belt kit replacement on a wide range of makes and models. We use only quality parts and manufacturer specific tools.
 
While the current trend is for manufacturers to go back to timing chains to operate the engine’s valve train, many engines still rely on a timing belt for this operation.
 
Far too often when left past the recommended replacement intervals we find it is not the timing belt that has failed but the timing belt idler bearings or tensioner. Given that the failure of this system can leave you stranded and your engine often needing a major rebuild, when replacing a timing belt we follow industry best practice in replacing the belt, idler bearings, tensioner and any applicable engine oil seals. This ensures your timing system can last the full replacement interval and remain trouble free.

Typically, timing belt replacement schedule intervals range anywhere from 60,000km to 200,000km depending on your engine. If you would like more information or advice regarding the timing belt, please get in touch. We can also provide a quote for the replacement.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Transmission Service

 
Now more than ever, the correct servicing, at the recommended intervals, is a major factor for ensuring your transmission lasts the life of your car. Also, when dealing with a standard automatic transmission, we use a dedicated automatic gearbox fluid transfer machine, which works like a blood transfusion for your gearbox. This ensures that we replace 100% of the fluid, which is the most critical part in gearbox longevity, unlike other methods which only drain 30-40%. Be sure to ask which method is being used by your chosen repairer when pricing automatic transmission servicing.
