Frequently Asked Questions
What are the signs of a damaged vehicle suspension?
There are several signs that your vehicle suspension may be damaged. Some common indicators include:
Many drivers usually get their brakes checked when they have their tyres rotated. Although there is no set time period, we recommend getting your brakes checked every six months to avoid any serious car accidents or repairs.
What happens if I drive with a bad exhaust?
Faulty exhausts are ineffective when it comes to siphoning exhaust fumes out of your engines and have a negative impact on your vehicle performance. Bad exhausts also cause your vehicle to produce higher emissions and can damage other internal components of your car if left unattended.
What are the common signs that my car battery is dying?
There are several signs that may signify your car battery is dying. Some of these include:
The battery is leaking or corroded
The battery warning light is on
The battery case is bloated
You’ve had the same battery for more than three years
The engine takes a while to crank upon starting the vehicle
Disc and drum machining services allow you to save money when it comes to repairing your brakes. This is because you avoid the cost of having to buy brand new discs or drums for your brakes. Skilled machinery is used to refurbish the disc and drums and negate the effects associated with unevenness, distortion, or general wear and tear.
Why are my brakes making a grinding noise?
There are two primary reasons why your brakes may be making a grinding noise. The first is that the brake pads are significantly worn down. This causes metal-on-metal contact between the brake pads and the rotor disc.
The grinding noise in this instance occurs as you put pressure on your brake pedal. The other instance in which brakes may make a grinding noise is when debris ends up between the rotor disc and calliper. This causes a grinding noise to occur when the vehicle is in motion.
