LOGBOOK SERVICING

Whenever you purchase a new vehicle, the manufacturer provides you with a warranty that covers the cost of parts failure. This warranty is voided, however, if you do not have your vehicle regularly serviced by a certified mechanic who records and stamps these servicings in your vehicle’s logbook.

Here at Timber City Motors our fully certified mechanics can provide logbook services for all:

  • Petrol passenger vehicles
  • Diesel passenger vehicles
  • Utility/Commercial vehicles up to 16 tonnes GVM

To book your next logbook service with us, get in touch today!

INSPECTIONS

When you are selling or otherwise transferring ownership of a vehicle, you are first required to make sure the vehicle has a current Safety Certificate. The Safety Certificate, issued by an Approved Inspection Station, ensures that your vehicle meets the legal safety standards to be safely driven on Queensland roads, and you have to acquire one before you even start advertising that your vehicle is for sale.

Pre-purchase inspections are recommended whenever you’re looking at buying a secondhand car. They make sure that you know exactly what you’re buying, and will uncover any nasty surprises. Here at Timber City Motors we even give you an estimated cost of repairs to factor into your purchasing decision.

Pre-trip inspections are a basic, but vital part of motoring safety. It’s pretty simple when you think about it. Would you rather discover there’s a fault in your drivetrain in a mechanics workshop where it can be fixed, or out in the middle of nowhere, miles away from the people and the tools that could help you?

Timber City Motors is an Approved Inspection Station, and we also perform pre-purchase and pre-trip inspections, so no matter what you need, talk to us today!

BRAKE SERVICES

Your brakes’ condition is vital to the safety of yourself, your passengers and your fellow drivers. While other safety features like airbags reduce the severity of accidents, the brakes can act preventively and turn an accident into an emergency stop. Your brakes also suffer an extraordinary amount of wear, as they are routinely bringing tonnes of metal to a complete stop, every single day. For this reason we agree with brake manufacturers that you should have your brakes checked at least once a year.

Here at Timber City Motors our expert technicians can provide the following brake services:

  • Brake component replacement
  • Brake component machining

If you haven’t had your brakes checked in a while, contact us today!

STEERING & SUSPENSION

Faults in your steering and suspension affect handling and ride comfort, causing play in the steering wheel and body lean through corners. Your suspension is also responsible for maximising the grip your tyres exert on the road, and a poor suspension can substantially increase your stopping distance.

Timber City Motors’ experienced mechanics can help you with:

  • Shock absorbers, springs and struts
  • Wheel alignments
  • Wheel balancing
  • Bushing and joint replacement
  • Power steering repairs and replacement

If you are having trouble with your steering or suspension, get in touch today!

AIR CONDITIONING

Driving in the summer without air conditioning can be practically unbearable – especially if you’re stuck in traffic! Your air conditioning is unique in that it degrades more from disuse than from use, as the multitude of rubber tubing and seals, that make up a majority of the system, actually dry up and crack if not used, leaking refrigerant gas and robbing your AC of its cooling power.

Here at Timber City Motors we can completely repair your aircon, starting by replacing faulty condensers and compressors, as well as cracked tubing, and finally re-gassing your system with refrigerant once we’re certain it’s airtight.

If your air conditioning isn’t working properly, don’t sweat it this summer, talk to us today!

CLUTCH & TRANSMISSION

Responsible for transferring power from the engine to the wheels, the drivetrain is comprised of some of the most intricate and sophisticated machinery in your vehicle. Due to its complicated nature, even minor faults and flaws can quickly proliferate into very costly repairs.

If you’re having difficulty changing gears, or hear a grinding or clunking noise when you do, or notice a burning smell coming from under the bonnet after a drive, you may have an issue with your vehicle’s drivetrain.

Here at Timber City Motors our expert mechanics can perform:

  • Clutch repairs
  • Automatic and manual transmission servicing and repairs

If you’ve noticed any of the warning signs mentioned above, contact us today!

RADIATORS & COOLING SYSTEMS

If your radiator is malfunctioning, it will cause a multitude of problems, including reduced engine power, fuel efficiency and engine lifespan, as leaking coolant will cause major engine internal damage. If these problems are ignored for long enough, they can render your vehicle immobile, with the cost of repairs being comparable to that of buying a second-hand car.

Here at Timber City Motors we can help you with:

  • Radiator/heater unit repairs and replacement
  • Engine overheating repairs
  • Coolant flush and leak check
  • Thermostat check and replacement

If your cooling system isn’t working properly, get in touch today!

DIAGNOSTICS & AUTO ELECTRICAL

As modern vehicles have increased in complexity, more and more functionality is being handled by the network of onboard computers. This network handles everything from playing music and monitoring fuel input to starting the engine, assisting with braking and gear changes, and even putting your vehicle into limp mode if a serious flaw is detected, to prevent any lasting damage.

Here at Timber City Motors, our technicians can perform:

  • Full diagnostics
  • Battery test and replacement
  • Alternator and starter motor replacement
  • Component test and replacement

If you have any engine running or performance problems, talk to us today!

TYRES & WHEELS

The condition of your tyres is the deciding factor in your handling and stopping distance, especially in wet weather. The treads in your tyre act as channels to divert the water away from the road surface.

Here at Timber City Motors we can arrange tyres from major brands for all makes and models of:

  • Passenger vehicles
  • 4×4 vehicles

If your tyres are looking a bit bald, contact us today!
