  • Your brakes are probably the most important part of your car. If your car is having a braking problem, whether it’s weak brakes, a mushy pedal, grinding sounds – whatever your brake problem is, you need to troubleshoot and repair it as soon as possible.

    Diagnosing the problem.
    If you step on the brake pedal and it feels like it’s going too far down before you start to slow, you might have the following problems:

    Low Brake Fluid Level.
    Check your brake fluid. If it’s low, top it off to the mark on the side of the reservoir.

  • Your timing belt, also known as the cambelt, allows the engine crankshaft to turn the camshaft which controls the opening and closing of the engine’s valves.  The valves open and close allowing fuel to enter, ignite, and exhaust, thus the valves are a primary part of controlling the flow of fuel and exhaust gasses through the engine.

  • No clutch will last forever. The facings on the clutch disc wear as the miles accumulate. The clutch pressure plate and flywheel can become scored, worn, warped or cracked from all the heat and friction generated by the clutch. A perfectly good clutch also can be ruined by oil contamination; the cable or hydraulic linkage can fail, or the release bearing, pilot bearing/bushing or fork can wear out and prevent the clutch from working properly.

    There are a variety of things that can go wrong with a clutch, below are some of the most common complaints.

  • Servicing

    For all new cars within the first 3 years of their life, a service at an approved garage is a must. Our approved garage makes sure that your manufacturers’ warranty is protected all the time.

    A regular car service ensures that your car is safe for you and other road users. A service will also ensure the vehicle is running optimally and improves fuel efficiency, prolongs the life of your car and can prove to be much cheaper in the long run. A badly maintained car is unsafe, inefficient and those breakdowns will all add up to a much larger bill than regular car servicing costs.
