Servicing and Repair

Logbook Services

A warranty car is invaluable to preserving your peace of mind when it comes to the amount of money invested in a new vehicle. Many car dealers will try to convince you that the regular logbook services your warranty requires must be done at the place of purchase. In truth a reputable workshop like Shift Automotive can conduct these logbook services for you, saving you the trip back to the dealer and usually cheaper than the dealer also.

Brakes Services

Your brakes are the most important safety feature that your vehicle has. While other safety systems, like airbags, reduce the severity of an accident, your brakes can also act preventatively, and the condition of your brakes is often the deciding factor between an accident and an emergency stop.

Here at Shift Automotive, our skilled technicians can help you with:

  • Component Replacement (pads, rotors, drums etc.)
  • Machining
  • Hoses
  • Restorations

Air Conditioning

Your air conditioning actually degrades more from disuse than from use, as the rubber tubing and seals dry up and crack, allowing the refrigerant gas to leak out and rob your aircon of its cooling power.

Here at Shift Automotive, we can service and repair your air conditioning, replacing faulty components like compressors, condensers and evaporators, swapping out cracked tubing and seals, and finally recharging your system with refrigerant once we’re certain it’s airtight.

Mechanical Servicing

Cooling Systems

If your cooling system is malfunctioning, it can affect fuel efficiency, power output and even engine lifespan, as overheating and leaking coolant damages the engine. If cooling system problems are left untreated for long enough, they can render your vehicle immobile, with the cost of repairs being comparable to buying a secondhand car!

If you notice your car is running a bit hot, don’t delay! Shift Automotive can help you with:

  • Radiator/Heater Repairs and Replacement
  • Head Gaskets
  • Coolant Flush
  • Thermostats

Clutch & Transmission

As part of the drivetrain, the system that transmits power from the engine to the wheels, your transmission is made up of some of the most complex and intricate machinery in your vehicle. This complexity means that even minor flaws can quickly escalate into costly repairs, so keep an eye out for these warning signs:

  • Difficult changing gears or staying in gear
  • Reduced power output
  • A grinding or clunking noise when changing gear
  • A burning smell after driving

If you notice any of these warning signs, Shift Automotive can help you with:

  • Automatic Transmissions
  • Manual Transmissions
  • Differentials
  • CV Joints
  • Servicing
  • Repairs and Replacement (Anything from Standard to High Performance)

Auto Electrical

As modern vehicles have increased in complexity, more and more functionality is being governed by the onboard auto electrical network.

Here at Shift Automotive, we can help you with:

  • Alternators and starter motors
  • Battery check and replacement
  • Component test and replacement
  • Diagnostic scans

Faults and flaws in your steering and suspension can affect handling and ride comfort, causing issues such as play in the steering wheel, body lean through corners, and vibrations at speed. Your suspension is also responsible for maximising the grip that your tyres exert on the road surface, so a poor suspension will also increase your stopping distance.

Here at Shift Automotive, our skilled mechanics can help you with:

  • Wheel Alignments
  • Shocks/Springs
  • Wheel balancing
  • Bushing replacement
  • Power Steering Repairs/Replacement
  • Lift Kits and 4wd Upgrades
