Exhaust Service & Repair
Exhaust system inspected for leaks, damage and deterioration. Replacement with quality mufflers and components.
Air Conditioning Service & Repair
Air conditioning is a necessity when managing Sydney’s summers – especially if you have children or carry pets in the car.
When we service your air conditioner we inspect system operating pressures, and look for leaks, deterioration or damage to any hoses, seals or components. Drive belts will be checked and replaced where necessary. System recharged with refrigerant.
Fuel System – Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI)
EFI can cause problems. Hard starting, rough running and poor fuel economy are symptomatic of dirty injectors.
We perform a full engine tune-up, clean fuel injectors to ensure smooth running, check the air intake system and inspect fuel lines, replace fuel filter and check air cleaner and renew if necessary.
Engine Service & Repair
Did you know that most manufacturers specify that cam belts must be replaced every 100,000 kms? Our technical reference system provides us with detailed vehicle maintenance information for all engine components on most makes and models. We handle all engine repairs whether it’s timing belts, battery maintenance, system hoses, oil leaks or ignition problems.
When you consider the high price of tyres today, a wheel alignment is a simple and valuable investment. Front wheel misalignment causes premature tyre wear, high-speed instability and unnecessary expense.
At Straight Steer Automotive our technicians are trained to spot tyre damage caused by a front end that is misaligned. We use the latest precision equipment to adjust caster, camber and toe-in of front wheels to prevent excessive tyre wear and high-speed instability.
Cooling System Service & Repair
Sydney’s harsh summers can be hard on cars, so it’s important to make sure that your cooling system is in top condition. Our technicians pressure-test the radiator, inspect hoses for leaks, radiator cap for proper sealing, coolant level, check water pump for leaks, noise and wear and all drive belts for tension and condition.
Clutch Service & Repair
Your clutch transfers power from the engine through the transmission and to the wheels. It’s subject to wear and tear especially if it’s not adjusted properly. We adjust it to manufacturers’ specifications and check the hydraulics for operation and fluid leaks.
All clutch replacements include flywheel machining to ensure smooth take up and shudder free clutch operation.
Suspension Service, Set-up & Repair
At Straight Steer Automotive we know that worn steering components can be dangerous and affect your safety, as well as causing premature tyre wear. We test and inspect all suspension components for wear including ball joints, shock absorbers, control arms, bushes, tie rod ends and McPherson struts.
Brake Service & Repair
Worn or damaged disc pads or brake linings can be fatal. If left alone, they can also cause additional damage to disc rotors and brake drums, leading to even more expense.
Our brake service includes disc pad or brake shoe replacement on front or rear wheels, using quality pads. We also machine brake discs and drums to ensure smooth braking and to prevent premature wear on new components when we replace disc pads or brake linings.
Transmission Service & Repair
Day after day, your automatic transmission shifts up and down hundreds of times without missing a beat. We make sure that it stays that way.
During a service on a vehicle with an automatic transmission we check transmission fluid levels, check for leaks, clean and/or replace filter and road test the vehicle to make sure that everything works the way it should.
Rear Axle Service & Repair
In rear wheel drive vehicles the back axle assembly and differential work hard, driving the rear wheels and adjusting their speed as you go around corners.
During our vehicle services [if you have a rear wheel drive vehicle] we check your drive shaft universal joints for wear, fluid level in the differential housing, rear wheel oil seals and all rear axle mounting points.
