Cooling System Repairs
The cooling system in your car is responsible for ensuring that your engine is operating at the correct temperature. If this system is leaking or not flowing efficiently, this can result in your engine overheating. If your engine overheats, major damage can occur, this can result in costly repairs. It is important to ensure that your cooling system is repaired before any damage occurs. If your engine is running hot or overheating, don’t hesitate to visit our workshop for an assessment.
We can flush your cooling system, replace your radiator, thermostat, water pump, head gasket, hoses and much more. If you’d like an assessment of your car’s cooling system, contact us today.
Steering and Suspension Repairs
The steering and suspension parts on your vehicle will wear over time and require routine maintenance and repairs to ensure your car handles safely. As your car’s steering components wear, it may not handle as precisely and predictably as it once did. Worn or damaged steering components can also result in uneven tyre wear and reduced traction on the road. As your suspension components wear, your car may ride less comfortably on the road.
If you’re experiencing any issues with your cars handling, visit our workshop today for an assessment of your car’s steering and suspension. To find out more, contact us today.
Brake Repairs and Servicing
Having properly functioning brakes is vital to your safety when driving. Worn or damaged brake parts can result in decreased stopping power, increasing your stopping distance in an emergency. We are an ATE Brake Centre and can repair and replace brake pads, rotors, hoses, drums and discs for your vehicle. We only use quality ATE parts in our repairs to ensure that we maximise the longevity and reliability of all our work. ATE brake products are ceramic, making them dust-proof, which increases the longevity of all brake repairs.
If your brakes are squealing, your steering shudders under braking, or your brakes aren’t as powerful as they once were, visit our workshop for an assessment and we will provide a quote for the repair. For more information, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
The exhaust of your vehicle is responsible for dispelling gases produced during combustion in your engine. As your engine burns fuel, it produces emissions that need to be dispelled quickly and efficiently. If your exhaust is worn, cracked or not flowing efficiently, this can dramatically decrease the power and fuel efficiency of your car.
A worn or damaged exhaust can also be louder and make rattling noises if any mounting points have cracked or broken. For an assessment of your car’s exhaust system, contact us today.
Similarly to any other mechanical part of your car, your transmission requires routine servicing so that it runs reliably and shifts smoothly. If your transmission goes un-serviced, major damage can occur, resulting in costly repairs. We service transmissions on all makes and models, always using top quality parts, fluids and lubricants. To find out more about our transmission servicing, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
RWC and Other Vehicle Inspections
When a secondhand car changes ownership, it requires a roadworthy certificate which verifies that it can be legally driven on Victorian roads.
The roadworthy certificate is issued by a licensed tester, after a thorough inspection that ensures the vehicle is safe to drive.
It does not ensure the vehicle is in good condition, which is why we recommend pre-purchase inspections when you’re buying a secondhand vehicle. This way you know exactly what youre buying and can avoid any nasty surprises.
When you’re planning a long road trip, we would recommend a pre-trip inspection. This way any issues with your vehicle can be treated before you set off, and can enjoy your trip with peace of mind.
ALS Automotive is a licensed testing station and can help you with roadworthy, pre-purchase and pre-trip inspections
Your engine is the hardest working component in your vehicle, and even with regular maintenance, repairs are sometimes needed. If you notice the following warning signs, you should have your engine checked sooner rather than later.
Warning signs include: illuminated check engine light, loss of power, decreased fuel efficiency, knocking noises, backfiring, hissing and popping noises, engine stalling, strange smells, or if your engine continues to run after the ignition is turned off.
Here at ALS Automotive, our expert technicians can fully repair your engine, and can help you with:
- Engine blocks
- Cylinder heads
- EFI diagnostics
Your tyres might seem simple at first, but they are actually marvels of modern engineering. They are designed to continue to provide grip even as they wear (as long as your wheels are aligned) and in wet weather, the treads of your tyres act as channels to divert water away from where the tyres meet the road surface, and prevent aquaplaning. Once your tyres are over 5 years old, you should have them checked at least once a year to make sure they’re still providing appropriate grip on the road surface.
ALS Automotive can help you with:
- Car tyres
- 4WD tyres
- Light Commercial (vans and utes) tyres
- Tyre fitting
- Tyre balancing
- Tyre rotation
