To maintain your new vehicle’s warranty, it’s expected that it undergoes regularly scheduled servicing at the hands of a reputable mechanic to ensure it’s all in working order. Records of these services are usually kept in your vehicle’s logbook.
At Minshull Mechanical Repairs we offer customers logbook servicing for all vehicles.
Your vehicle’s brakes are its most important safety feature, often making the difference between an emergency stop and an costly trip to a panel beater. It’s also one of the areas of your vehicle most susceptible to wear and tear, particularly with the stop-start nature of urban driving.
We can conduct a host of brake repairs for all makes and models of vehicles. We can replace worn brake pads, discs and drums, or machine the surface of your existing brake parts for longer life. We can also check your brake hydraulics for leaks and make repairs to cables and pedals to ensure your vehicle has all the stopping power it needs.
Steering & Suspension
From oversteer and understeer to body roll when going around corners, a number of handling and ride comfort issues can be traced back to wear and tear in your vehicle’s steering or suspension.
Our team can provide replacement parts for worn suspension systems, from car springs and shock absorbers to bushing. We can also repair power steering systems and other issues in the steering column, as well as fit lift kits and other 4WD upgrades.
Clutch & Transmission
Your vehicle’s transmission is an intricate piece of engineering. Problems with it can very quickly spiral out of control if not found and repaired quickly. If you’re having trouble finding gears when on the road, it’s best to have your vehicle checked out for transmission problems sooner rather than later.
We can service and repair all manual and automatic transmissions, as well as source replacement units. We’ll also conduct repairs on your vehicle’s differential and CV joint, ensuring efficient and even distribution of power to your wheels with minimal loss of control.
Your engine is the beating heart of your vehicle; issues here can have a drastic toll on your vehicle’s performance and fuel efficiency.
We can provide a range of engine repairs for all makes and models, including rebuilds, reconditioning and testing. We can clean and repair engine blocks, cylinder heads and camshafts, as well as provide EFI diagnostics.
While everyone remembers that your engine needs petrol to run properly, a lot of people forget, or don’t even realise, that your engine needs another kind of fuel just as much: oxygen. The exhaust allows fresh air to enter the engine bay and fuel your engine, by drawing out the waste gases. If you’re looking for a cost-effective performance boost, upgrading your exhaust provides great bang for your buck.
Here at Minshull Mechanical Repairs, we can repair, replace, upgrade, and modify your vehicle’s exhaust. We also stock a wide range of high quality exhaust parts from Manta Performance Exhausts, the team with over 90 years of experience engineering and developing the best performance exhaust systems in Australia.
