Automatic Transmissions

Most car manufactures today inform us that the automatic transmission in our cars are ’filled for life’ on the assembly line and will never need servicing, but from our experience this is far from the truth. The fluid in an automatic transmission is its  lifeblood. It depends on it to operate efficiently over its life time and to ignore it is to risk damage to the transmission and possibly expensive repairs. Some transmissions cost over $10,000 to rebuild!  So make sure that your car receives the Automatic transmission servicing that it requires.

Call us for the best automatic transmission repairs for Archerfield, Sunnybank, Salisbury and many more suburbs.

Automatic transmission servicing and repairs are needed as fluid breaks down over time, and with high temperatures its efficiency and service life is reduced. Most transmission problems start from overheating- for example; heavy load use such as towing, continuous stop and go traffic in hot weather and off road driving will cause the transmission to overheat. At higher temperatures the transmission fluid oxides, losing its lubrications qualities and leaving deposits all over the inside of the transmission.

If you check the automatic transmission fluid in an overheated transmission it would be dark and dirty, with a strong burnt smell. Exposed to the heat, the rubber seals and o-rings become hard and brittle. Varnish also builds up on metal components causing valves to stick. Sooner or later this will result in transmission failure. We recommend for peace of mind, servicing your auto transmission every 70,000- 80,000km.  Automatic transmission repairs should be done as required.

Today’s modern transmissions are computer controlled and contain many electronic solenoids and sensors. Our technicians are able to diagnose if your problem is an electronic issue, or hydraulic or mechanical problem.

Our service centre can perform a standard auto transmission service or a full auto transmission flush service.

Auto transmission flush service.

When your auto fluid is in poor condition (burnt and discoloured) we highly recommend a full auto transmission flush service.

Our technicians initially add a flush treatment to the transmission before road testing. This treatment breaks down sludge and varnish build up inside the transmission and suspends the contaminants in the old fluid.

We then hook up our flushing station and fully flush out the old fluid whilst adding new auto fluid to replace it. A seal rejuvenation treatment is also added to help soften hard seals and o-rings to revitalise them and improve their performance.

We have solved many shift and performance problems with this process, which has saved our customers having to pay for expensive transmission rebuilds.

If your experiencing any auto transmission problems then

We will let you know if you require any automatic transmission repairs.

Brake Repairs

The braking system is one of your vehicle’s most important safety systems; therefore it is critical that it is well maintained and checked regularly to ensure the safety of yourself, your family and loved ones.  We provide the best brake repairs and servicing in the Brisbane area.

Our future trained technicians will fully inspect and diagnose quickly any problems in your braking system.

BRAKE FLUID:

Brake fluid is the lifeblood of the braking system. Brake fluid transfers the pressure you apply to the brake pedal to the brakes at the wheels. Brake fluid is very hygroscopic (absorbs moisture very readily) which lowers its boiling point. This can cause contaminated brake fluid to boil leading to brake fade and reduced braking efficiency, which increases stopping distances. Moisture in brake fluid also causes corrosion of vital brake components. Most vehicle manufacturers recommend brake fluid replacement every two years or 40,000km.

BRAKE DANGER SIGNS

  • An increase in braking distance
  • Vibration or pulsation when brakes are applied
  • Squealing or grinding noises
  • Vehicle pulls sideways when braking
  • Low or spongy brake pedal feel
  • Brake pedal sinks to the floor
  • Handbrake won’t hold on hills etc.

IF YOU EXPERIENCE ANY OF THESE SYMPTOMS THEN

Clutch Repairs

All manual cars & 4wd’s require a clutch assembly to allow the driver to select and change gears which then supplies engine power to the drive wheels so the vehicle will take off and drive.  Clutch repairs are sometimes required as failures with clutches can occur from time to time.

These are three main components of a clutch system (Pressure plate, Clutch plate and Thrust bearing). But there are different types of systems used to engage and disengage the clutch.

Our Future trained technicians are able to diagnose any clutch problems you have quickly, so you can be back on the road in no time.

Typical reasons why clutch repairs may be needed are:

  • Hard to select gears
  • Lack of power on hills ( clutch slip )
  • Crunching noise when selecting gears
  • Clutch hydraulic fluid loss
  • Shake/ Shudder on take off
  • Noisy clutch operation
  • Broken or binding clutch cable

Just to name a few

IF YOU ARE EXPERIENCING CLUTCH OR GEAR SELECTION PROBLEMS THEN

Common Rail Diesel

Diesel engine technology has made huge advancements in recent years with the introduction of common rail diesel engine systems. Common rail diesel engines utilise fuel pressures of up to 40,000psi which is injected through electronic fuel injectors, controlled by an electronic management system.

Common rail diesel engine advantages

  •    improved fuel economy
  •    increased engine power
  •    lower exhaust emissions
  •    reduced noise
  •    vastly improved performance
  •    increased engine torque at lower rpm

Servicing common rail diesel engines

Specialist knowledge and equipment is required for the diagnosis and repair of this technologically advanced fuel system. Unfortunately every vehicle manufacturers system has it’s problems.

Exhaust & Mufflers

The exhaust system on your vehicle is usually forgotten about, until it starts to leak and becomes noisy. In reality your exhaust system is very important to the correct running of your vehicle.

Todays modern cars & 4wd’s have very sophisticated systems incorporating components such as Catalytic Convertors, Diesel Particulate Filters, Oxygen Sensors and DPF Sensors just to name a few.

It is critical that all sensors and filters are operating correctly to ensure your vehicles engine performance & economy is maintained at peak levels.

Your average car repair workshop probably won’t be equipped to maintain & repair these modern exhaust systems.

Our Future trained technicians are able to test & diagnose any problems with your exhaust system.

Fuel Injection

The electronic fuel injection systems fitted to today’s modern petrol and diesel powered vehicles combines sophisticated computer controls with a high pressure fuel delivery system to provide optimum power and fuel efficiency. These systems are controlled by electronic control units (ECU) and inputs from many various sensors.

WE SPECIALISE IN THE FOLLOWING FUEL INJECTION SYSTEMS SERVICES

  • Electronic testing and diagnosis
  • Engine management systems
  • Fuel injection systems testing and repairs
  • Ultra sonic cleaning and back flushing
  • Fuel pump testing and repairs
  • Emission testing
  • On car injector cleaning
  • Engine carbon cleaning

Plus much more!

ENGINE CARBON CLEANING

Carbon build up causes poor fuel economy, a decrease in power and responsiveness plus rough idling and poor emissions. With everyday driving and the use of lesser quality fuel, your engine starts to accumulate carbon on intake manifolds, cylinder ports, intake valves and fuel injectors.

It is a gradual process so you generally won’t notice it. An engine carbon cleaning service will remove these deposits and restore power and economy. Some of our customers have been amazed by the results and love how much better their car performs. Engine de-carboning will certainly help with performance and fuel economy problems and also increase the life expectancy of your engine.

Turbo

In the quest to gain more power and better fuel economy from todays passenger cars & 4wd’s, manufacturers are now more commonly fitting turbo chargers to their vehicles. A simple explanation of how a turbo charger works is that exhaust gases leaving the engine rotate a turbine which is connected to another turbine which compresses the intake air and forces more air into the engine which creates extra power. The turbo charger operates at extremely high speeds & temperatures.

Our modern service centre can perform:

  • Turbo charger maintenance
  • Turbo charger repairs
  • Turbo charger replacements
  • Electronic control system diagnostic and repairs
  • Turbo timers
  • Inter cooler cleaning
  • Inter cooler repairs/ replacements
  • Exhaust repairs

PLUS MUCH MORE!

It is vitally important to maintain these engines regularly using high quality lubricants to ensure a long service life of these expensive components.

Our Future trained technicians are able to diagnose & repair these forced induction systems.
