Your brakes are arguably the most important component of your car for safety, and Blackheath Automotive Services is an expert in repairing all types of front and rear brakes. The quality of our work is a matter of life and death, and we know it. Come in for a free, no-obligation price quote and a preliminary examination of your car’s braking system.
Your car relies on the drive belts for the air injection pump, cooling fan, power steering pump, air conditioning compressor, and alternator. Without proper maintenance, you run the risk of having your drive belt break, causing the engine to overheat and suffer damage. Taking your car to Blackheath Automotive Services is the first step in making sure this doesn’t happen to you.
Drive Shafts & CV Joints
Each and every time you come in for service, Blackheath Automotive Services checks your CV joints. Early detection can prevent expensive mishaps. The CV joints not only adjust for vertical motion in your car’s suspension system, but also transfer torque to the wheels at a constant speed. We’ll make sure that they’re in the best condition possible.
We are experts in automotive drivelines – and everything else under your vehicle, for that matter. The next time you hear a loud noise while shifting or feel a shuddering sensation as your car speeds up, it could be a sign that your universal joints are loose and need to be replaced. It could also mean a worn centre bearing. Episodes of noise and/or rough handling could be indicative of trouble along your driveline. Bring your car in so that the experts Blackheath Automotive Services can take a look.
Automotive maintenance and repair has changed over the years, and today’s auto technicians need to know how to work with computers to perform engine diagnostics. The vehicle’s on-board computer system controls everything from the steering system to the fuel injectors. At Blackheath Automotive Services we’re fully prepared to identify precisely which part of your vehicle needs servicing, because we have all the best and most current diagnostic equipment.
Mufflers and the Exhaust System
When your car has a bad muffler, everyone can hear it. The booming and rattling noises are loud and embarrassing, and the malfunctioning exhaust system is horrible for the environment. If you suspect your car might have a bad muffler, bring it in to Blackheath Automotive Services for a free, no-obligation inspection of the exhaust system. Whether you drive a foreign or domestic vehicle, we have all the equipment and tools needed to make an accurate diagnosis, correct the problem, and get you back on the road again.
Preventative maintenance is the key to your car’s long-term performance. We’ll make sure that we follow your car’s maintenance schedule, covering your battery, belts, brakes, wheel alignment, heating and air conditioning, exhaust system, tyres, filters, suspension system, and more. When you regularly bring your car in for routine maintenance, you’ll keep it in optimal condition and minimise the need for costly preventable repairs.
Your car’s engine generates a lot of heat, and the radiator is responsible for making sure that coolant flows throughout the engine, keeping everything at a manageable temperature. At Blackheath Automotive Services, we inspect the radiator and the entire coolant system, making sure that everything is working as it should be.
The suspension system is what keeps you comfortable when riding in your vehicle. In addition to providing a smooth ride, the suspension lets you steer and brake safely while maintaining proper contact with the road. The experts at Blackheath Automotive Services know all about struts and shock absorbers, with more than 20 years of experience maintaining, repairing, and replacing them as needed.
Failing to inspect the timing belt regularly could result in catastrophic engine damage when your engine abruptly stops working due to a break in the belt. Avoid being stranded at an inopportune moment by letting the experts at Blackheath Automotive Services inspect your timing belt and advise you on when it needs to be replaced.
Repairing a car’s transmission is one of the most expensive types of vehicle repair. Why deal with the headache and expense of transmission repair, when you could instead prevent it through properly scheduled maintenance? Blackheath Automotive Services will do everything possible to keep your transmission in good condition so you can drive without worrying about engine failure.
Just as we all need regular medical check-ups, your car needs regular tune-ups as recommended by the auto manufacturer. When you bring your car to Blackheath Automotive Services, we’ll follow the manufacturer’s checklist, replacing spark plugs and conducting other maintenance services as needed to make your car run as smoothly as possible while improving your fuel economy and minimising harmful emissions.
At Blackheath Automotive Services, we advise our customers to have automotive water hoses and clamps examined twice each year. Even the smallest cracks on the exterior can cause the engine to overheat when the hose suddenly bursts. Water hoses allow coolant to move between the engine, heating block, and radiator, so it’s critically important to make sure they’re in good condition.
Your vehicle’s cooling system depends on the water pump. If it fails, your car’s engine will run too hot until it overheats and ultimately stops working. At Blackheath Automotive Services, we provide expert service for water pumps on all types of vehicles.
Many people forget about the importance of wheel alignment, but it is critical for your car’s safety and passengers’ comfort. Proper alignment can also improve your vehicle’s fuel economy and make your tyres last longer. At Blackheath Automotive Services, we use a four-wheel computerised system to ensure your wheels are in proper alignment.
