Tired of complicated car lingo and hidden costs in the bill from your mechanic? At DK Mechanical Repairs, we take the confusion out of having your vehicle serviced or repaired.
We will walk you through any required work and the associated costs involved. It’s our job to help you understand what your car needs and why, so you’re always comfortable with the work we undertake.
New & Used Car Logbook Servicing
Caravan & Trailer Servicing
During a caravan or trailer service, we perform roughly 40 different inspections and tests, completing lubrication, top-ups or repair work as required. We thoroughly check the full body, all moving components and areas prone to wear and tear, such as external lights, circuits, brakes and water tank mountings.
eSafety & AUVIS Inspections
eSafty Petrol, Diesel & LPG Pink Slips
Before a vehicle that is more than 5 years old can be re-registered, you’ll require an eSafety certificate, also known as a pink slip. As an authorised eSafety inspection centre, we can assess if your petrol, diesel or LPG light vehicle is safe to be driven.
If your vehicle passes the inspection, we’ll send an electronic copy of the report to Roads and Maritime Services for you. In the event your vehicle does not pass the inspection, we can make any repairs for you within the required 14-day period.
Authorised Unregistered Vehicle Inspections (Blue Slips)
A vehicle that meets any of the following criteria will require a blue slip before it can be driven legally:
Repairs, Replacements & Maintenance
All General Repairs & Maintenance
Diesel Motor Repairs
Where possible, we’ll repair any faults within a car or 4WD’s engine. If repairing or replacing individual parts won’t fix the problem, or if the costs exceed the value of the potential improvements, we may suggest an engine replacement. We’ll carry out the replacement in our modern workshop using a quality new engine and parts.
Gearbox & Diff Service & Repairs
Automatic Transmission Service
Your vehicle’s suspension is vital for the comfort and control of your drive. A suspension sag or break may cause your car to sway when turning corners, excessively bounce over bumps, sit lower on one side or make a knocking noise. If you’ve noticed any of the above, book in to see our mechanics.
Brake Repair & Replacement
Over time, your brake pads, disc rotors and drums wear down, requiring replacement to ensure you can stop safely at any time. We can also repair the hydraulic system. Your brake fluid may also require flushing out.
Clutch Repair & Replacement
If you’ve noticed a grinding noise while changing gears, had trouble engaging the pedal, or issues with starting your car, then come see our experienced mechanics. The clutch is responsible for transferring power from the engine through the gearbox, which leads to the operation of your wheels. It’s important to have a professional mechanic undertake any clutch repairs or replacements to ensure the longest possible lifespan for the parts.
Exhaust Repair & Replacement
Timing Belt Replacement
The timing belt is just one of the many components vital for the efficient operation of the engine. A burning smell or rattling from your car’s engine may indicate it’s time for a replacement. Putting off replacing your timing belt can potentially result in major engine failure down the road!
Battery Testing & Sales
EFI (electronic fuel injection) tuning is the art of adjusting a tuner to allow the right amount of fuel to release at the right time. It can have a huge impact on your vehicle’s fuel efficiency and performance. The electronic control unit (ECU) can also be controlled by the EFI system, allowing for optimum horsepower. In short, if you want to get the most power out of your vehicle, get in touch with our team at DK Mechanical Repairs.
