Routine and Logbook Servicing

The key to trouble-free motoring is keeping routine servicing up to date.

Servicing can be broken into various categories depending on the age and mileage of your vehicle – minor services (generally every 10,000 kms or 6 months depending on manufacturer & oil specifications), major services (generally every 30,000 to 45,000 kms depending on the manufacturer) and Logbook services.

Minor services check the essential vehicle systems (oil, fluids, tyres, lights, filters, belts, hoses, battery and exhaust). Major services cover more comprehensive inspections of the main vehicle systems, including cooling system, air conditioning and transmission, and also include the replacement of fluids, filters and spark plugs if required.

A Logbook service is when your car is serviced in accordance with the vehicle manufacturers exact specifications. This is important if your vehicle is still under its original manufacturer’s warranty. It involves checking and/or replacing components and fluids on the vehicle at the intervals recommended by the manufacturer. Your vehicle does not have to be taken back to a dealership for Logbook servicing to be carried out, and your new vehicle warranty is not voided if the service is carried out by a licensed mechanic.

We offer a range of servicing options, only use quality brand parts and all our work is guaranteed. Click here to book your next service or call us to find out more.

Safety Inspections – AIS/AUVIS/HVAIS

We are accredited with the RMS for safety inspections of cars, caravans, light trucks, motorbikes, heavy vehicles and LPG.

Pink slips are an annual safety inspection required to re-register cars on Australian roads. Blue slips are safety checks used when vehicles are 3 months out of rego, when bringing cars from other states into NSW to register, clearing vehicles that have been defected or adjusting records after major changes (i.e. a new engine). Brown slips are safety inspections for heavy vehicles over 4.5 tonnes.

A NSW inspection is vital for legal, financial and safety reasons. It gives you peace of mind that the vehicle you’re driving is legally fit to be driven on NSW roads, so don’t get caught out – contact us today to book your safety inspection before it expires.

Air Conditioning

Air Conditioning

From an A/C regas to a full system inspection and service, we pride ourselves on being a one-stop vehicle air conditioning service provider.

Adam Walters is licensed through the Australian Refrigeration Council to perform A/C services. and John Dale Motors maintains registration & compliance with the ARC. This means we are fully qualified and responsible to ensure that fluorocarbon refrigerant gas is not emitted into the atmosphere, as this can contribute to global warming, damage the ozone layer and is very harmful to the environment in general.

If your air conditioning is no longer working the way it should, we will diagnose the problem and advise you of the most cost-effective solution.

Auto Electrical & Diagnostics

Today’s vehicles rely on a host of complex electronic systems to maintain optimum performance, fuel economy and emissions.

Only suitably qualified and equipped workshops can accurately diagnose and fix these complex electronic systems when they fail. For specialist auto-electrical repairs, we use the very latest diagnostic scan tools and analysers together with techniques honed over many years of experience.

We offer Outlander batteries through Century, these are a higher cold-cranking amp battery. Cold-cranking amps are designed to help vehicles start in cold climates. These are often chosen by those who travel to remote locations. We also offer deep-cycle batteries which are designed to be run flat and then charged again repetitively. These are used for people camping/living in a vehicle/running fridges, etc.

Our team will ensure that you are advised along the way what’s going on & provide you with an estimate for repairs. All parts installed by our licensed technicians are backed by industry-standard warranties.

Engine Replacements and Rebuilds

Engine Replacements and Rebuilds

Major issues such as clutch and engine failures don’t always mean the end of the road for the car you love.

We have years of experience repairing and replacing engines on all makes and models. Every project is different, so contact us to find out more and discuss your individual requirements with our experts.

Cooling Systems

Another absolutely critical system on any vehicle, the regular maintenance and prompt repair of your cooling system will prevent major engine damage and hefty future repair bills.

The Australian climate is punishing on radiators, hoses, water pumps and coolant. If it’s already too late, we’ll advise you on the best options for getting your vehicle back on the road in the most cost-effective manner.

Diesel Servicing and Repairs

Diesel Servicing and Repairs

Although diesel engines have been a common feature of commercial and passenger vehicles for many years, they are still regarded as a specialist area by many automotive technicians, requiring specialist knowledge, training and equipment.

At John Dale Motors your diesel vehicle is in expert hands.

Modern diesel engines feature complex and sophisticated emission control systems that require regular, expert maintenance to keep them performing optimally and avoid expensive repairs. High-Pressure Fuel Systems, Exhaust Gas Recirculation and Diesel Particulate Filters are key areas that catch many motorists out if not correctly maintained – leading to symptoms such as increased exhaust emissions, lack of power, poor fuel economy and big repair bills.

Read our blog article about modern diesel engines and their maintenance here, and contact us to discuss your diesel vehicle maintenance and repair needs in Charmhaven and surrounding areas.

Tyres

We offer a wide selection of new tyres for all budgets, from family cars and performance cars to 4WDs and SUVs, caravans, trailers, commercial and specialist vehicles, and the full range of tyre services including tyre-fitting, wheel balancing, wheel alignment and tyre repairs (where possible).

Although we can supply most brands, over the years we have settled on a preference for Kumho, based on their combination of exceptionally high quality, performance (grip, road-noise, tread life) and price point.

Read our blog post to find out more about the reasons why tyres should be one of the most important decisions you make for your vehicle, and how Khumo prioritise innovation and technology to stay at the forefront of tyre safety and performance.

Transmissions

Transmissions

Transmission servicing is often overlooked, but the life of your transmission can be greatly extended with proper maintenance. We provide a wide range of transmission diagnostics, servicing, overhauls and repairs.

If a problem already exists, we will ensure you get a correct diagnosis the first time. Only quality parts and fluids are used, so you can hit the road knowing that your transmission has been meticulously serviced or overhauled.

Pre-Purchase Inspections

Don’t buy a Lemon! Before committing to purchasing a pre-owned vehicle, book a pre-purchase inspection with one of our skilled technicians.

We’ll check the vehicle for any obvious faults, previous repairs, and accident damage and report on our findings. The report tells what you really need to know about your potential purchase and gives you the confidence to negotiate the right deal – or walk away from a potential money pit!
