Exhaust system inspected for leaks, damage and deterioration. Replacement with quality mufflers and components.
System inspected for operating pressures, leaks, deterioration or damage to any hoses, seals or components. Drive belt tension checked. System recharged with refrigerant.
Unless your car is one of the latest models, its air conditioning system uses a refrigerant called R12 containing fluorocarbons (CFC's). It is important to operate the air conditioner at least 5 minutes every week to prevent the system seals from drying out and leaking this ozone-depleting substance into the atmosphere.
All new cars use a CFC free refrigerant known as R134a which is far less damaging to the environment. Here's how your car's air conditioning system operates:
- The refrigerant is contained under pressure in a Receiver/Dryer. The system must he recharged with refrigerant when a low level is indicated.
- The refrigerated cold air passes through the evaporator where it mixes with warm air from inside the car.
- The refrigerant evaporates and absorbs the heat. The cooled and evaporated air is returned to the car and circulated via your blower.
- The vaporised refrigerant, meantime, passes into the compressor where it is pressurised once more.
- The pressurised refrigerant is forced into the condenser coils where the refrigerant condenses back into liquid form to repeat the cycle once more.
Fuel System - EFI
Service includes full engine tune-up, fuel injectors cleaned to ensure smooth running, air intake system and fuel lines inspected, fuel filter and air cleaner checked and renewed if necessary, full grease and oil change, full safety inspection and report.
We handle minor and major engine repairs. We also supply and fit exchange engines. Alternatively, engines can be rebuilt where no replacement unit is available. If your engine is worn and requires major mechanical work, a reconditioned replacement engine can restore power and economy to your vehicle.
Your local Repco Authorised Service Centre can supply and fit quality HM remanufactured engines for most makes and models. HM engines are remanufactured to the highest quality in automotive engineering.
All exchange engines are fully guaranteed for quality and performance. Engines will be rebuilt where a replacement unit is unavailable for your vehicle.
We use the latest precision equipment to adjust caster, camber an toe-in of front wheels to prevent excessive tyre wear and high-speed instability.
Major service includes grease and oil change plus precision Auto-Tech diagnostic tune-up and safety inspection, and report on your cars overall mechanical condition.
We pressure-test the radiator, inspect hoses for leaks, radiator cap for proper sealing, check coolant level, check water pump for leaks or wear and all drive belts for tension and condition.
Full clutch service including adjustment, hydraulics and clutch pad replacement for all makes and models.
We test and inspect all suspension components for wear including ball joints, shock absorbers, control arms, bushes and McPherson struts. Any parts extra.
Brake Service Includes disc pad or brake shoe replacement on front or rear wheel, using quality pads. We can also provide disc and drum machining.
Your car's disc brakes are one of the most vital operating systems of your car. By knowing a little more about how the disc brakes work, you'll better understand the importance of regular checks and servicing.
- Wheel bearing grease must be applied to the wheel hubs to reduce heat generated by frequent applications of the brakes
- The calliper has one or more hydraulic cylinders containing pistons. Whenever you press the brake pedal, the pistons exert pressure on the brake pads.
- Brake pads are metal plates with a bonded lining of friction material. As the lining material wears out, the metal pad moves closer to the disc. Pads should be replaced when less than 3mm from the disc.
- Retaining pins hold the disc pads in the calliper. New split pins are always fitted during replacement.
- The disc can be easily scored and damaged if the metal plate comes into contact with the disc. When below certain tolerances it must be replaced.
- A bleed nipple is provided to ensure that any air entering the hydraulic lines is "bleeded" off. Even a small amount of air in the system will severely impair the operation of the brakes.
Our Automatic Transmission Service includes replacement of transmission fluid, cleaning and/or replacement of filter plus adjustments as necessary.
Fluid level in differential checked. Universal joint and centre bearing checked for free play and replaced if necessary
