AUTO MECHANIC SERVICES WE OFFER:

LOGBOOK SERVICE

Log Book Service is the care and protection of your vehicle against potential major auto repairs.

Negligence is the most common and costly way to see money wasted on repairs that could have easily been prevented through regular service intervals. Car maintenance intervals have been designed to improve the reliability, durability, and resale value of your vehicle. Having scheduled preventative maintenance can keep your vehicle running better and more safe day to day and even prolong its life!

Car parts naturally wear out over time, and road hazards can negatively impact critical components. You will help ensure that your vehicle always runs at optimal conditions, by adhering to the preventive maintenance schedule in your vehicle owner’s manual.

E SAFETY CHECKS

Roads and Maritime Services maintains inspection and certification schemes to make sure that all vehicles meet minimum safety requirements. Most vehicles require a safety check before you can renew registration. Castle Hill Tyres and Auto is an Authorised Inspection Station.

DEFECT CLEARANCE

If you have been issued with a defect notice, Castle Hill Tyres and Auto can clear the defect. Please note: The defect must be cleared within 21 days from the end of the period the vehicle is allowed to be driven otherwise the registration may be suspended and/or cancelled.

COOLING SYSTEM

During an inspection of the cooling system service, our mechanics will check the cooling fan for any damage and the fan belt for cracks. The radiator is responsible for cooling the antifreeze as it circulates throughout the cooling system. A leak or a broken radiator hose can lead to major engine failure. A radiator pressure test is one way we can check for potential leaks or radiator damage. Neglecting basic cooling system and radiator maintenance can lead to a potential radiator replacement and major engine or radiator repairs down the road.

AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION

Replacing transmission fluid is one of the most important steps of automatic transmission repair. If you drive a vehicle with an automatic transmission, a fluid change at the correct interval will help you avoid a major transmission rebuild in the future. Automatic transmission fluid is responsible for powering, cooling, and lubricating the many moving parts of your transmission.

The main reason why it is important to change your automatic transmission fluid is the process of transmission fluid deterioration. The transmission fluid will gradually wear out over time. Transmission fluid will fail to properly power or lubricate your transmission if it is clogged and dirty with debris.

WHEEL BEARING

Like all mechanical parts on a car that rotate, rub and roll, they tend to wear out. And the tell-tale sign of a wheel bearing that’s had its day is a constant drone or hum from whichever wheel is affected at various speeds.

Even though wheel bearings are relatively simple, they need to be in near perfect condition to do their job. The bearings are packed with heavy grease to lubricate and protect them. A seal keeps the grease in and water and dirt out. It’s when the seal starts to leak that problems begin. The grease can become contaminated; causing the wheel bearings to overheat and ultimately fail.

BRAKE SERVICE

Our mechanics are trained in maintaining and servicing front and rear brake systems and all accompanying brake system components like brake pads, brake shoes, parking brakes, rotors, drums, and hydraulic systems.

A fully functioning brake system is crucial for your safety, the safety of your passengers, and the safety of other drivers on the road. Your vehicle’s brake system involves highly engineered parts and precise movements that stop your vehicle by converting kinetic energy into thermal energy. Over time, friction and heat has the potential to wear down the brake shoes, brake pads, calipers, brake rotors, and other braking components. While the components comprising each brake system may vary, the warning signs for impending brake repairs are the same.

DRIVE BELTS & HOSES

Your car, belts and hoses have one of the shortest life spans compared to any other parts on your car. These items are constantly exposed to engine heat, vehicle vibrations, and harmful chemicals, which all have the potential to cause cracks and leaks. Some symptoms to be aware of for belts and hoses nearing failure include squeaking, screeching, or grinding noises that begin when starting your engine or appear during vehicle operation. Since belts and hoses can be difficult to inspect visually, be sure to follow your manufacturer’s recommendations for scheduled maintenance.

BATTERIES

Castle Hill Tyres and Auto offers a free battery check. Our battery tester uses the latest battery technology for fast, accurate and consistent results.

The results can then be printed and reviewed immediately for our customers.

STEERING SERVICE

Power steering problems can make controlling the car much harder around curves and corners. The power steering unit of your car uses a hydraulic system that takes a lot of the steering strain off of the driver. This system builds up pressure as you turn the wheel and pushes the ty9res to either side as you turn. When there are power steering problems, you will instantly notice the difference. There are a few common problems that are associated with the power steering:

Difficulty steering wheel |  Steering wheel vibration |  Looseness in steering wheel |  Grinding noise when steering the wheel

CLUTCH REPLACEMENT

Problems with the clutch disc itself or its related parts can cause many symptoms. Your car may function poorly: it may start out slowly even though the engine is racing. Or it may be hard to get the car into reverse, or into gear at all.

We can do anything from replace a clutch cable right through to the bigger jobs like replace the whole clutch kit – which includes the clutch plate, pressure plate and the thrust / throw out bearing. We also repair or replace the clutch master and slave cylinder. If it is leaking or not working anymore we replace the cylinder, put in new fluid and bleed the clutch hydraulic system.

ALTERNATOR

The alternator is a key component in your car’s electrical system, turning the energy from the crankshaft into useful electricity to power your vehicle’s electrical systems and to help the battery recharge. When it starts to fail, it can create a domino effect of electrical problems that can ultimately cause a breakdown.

Batteries sometimes fail on their own–but a bad alternator can actually cause the battery to drain because it’s failing to recharge it. If your battery fails, have the alternator checked when replacing the battery so it doesn’t happen again.

FUEL INJECTION SERVICE

Fuel deposits can cause problems on your car’s performance and fuel economy, those deposits can also take their toll on your fuel injector system. The fuel injector is a moving mechanism that opens and closes to control the fuel flow. When carbon deposits build up over time, they can get in the way of the mechanism and cause damage. You can prevent those deposits from damaging the entire mechanism and prevent a costly replacement, by simply cleaning your fuel injector system on a regular basis.
