Logbook Servicing

Whenever you purchase a new vehicle, the manufacturer provides you with a warranty that will cover the cost of parts failures. This warranty is only valide if you have the vehicle regularly serviced by a certified mechanic, who will record and stamp these servicings in the vehicle’s logbook.

Here at All About Automotive, our fully certified mechanics can provide logbook services for the following vehicles:

  • Petrol passenger vehicles
  • Diesel passenger vehicles
  • Electric/hybrid vehicles

To book your next logbook service with us, get in touch today!

Vehicle Inspections

When you’re planning on selling or otherwise transferring ownership of a vehicle, you must first procure a roadworthy certificate, issued by an Approved Inspection Station. The roadworthy certificate is issued after the inspection station confirms that your vehicle can be safely driven on Northern Territory roads.

If you’re thinking about buying a second-hand vehicle, we would recommend bringing it in for a pre-purchase inspection. A pre-purchase inspection is a thorough check of the vehicle which ensures that you know exactly what you’re buying, with no nasty surprises. Here at All About Automotive, we will also provide you with an estimated cost of repairs for any issues we find so that you can factor that into your buying decision.

Vehicle Indentity Validation inspections ensure that your vehicle is not stolen, or a re-sold vehicle that has been written off as a wreck.

If you need any of the inspections mentioned above, contact us today!

Brake Services

Your brakes are paramount for the safety of yourself, your passengers, and other drivers you share the road with. While other safety features will reduce the severity of a collision, your brakes are preventative and well-maintained brakes are often the difference between an accident and an emergency stop.

Your brakes suffer an enormous amount of wear, as they routinely bring tonnes of metal to a complete stop, every day. For this reason we agree with brake manufacturers that you should have your brakes checked at least once a year.

All About Automotive’s expert mechanics can provide the following brake services:

  • Brake component machining
  • Brake component replacement
  • Brake hose repairs
  • Brake restorations

If you haven’t had your brakes checked in a while, talk to us today!

Steering & Suspension

Faults in your steering and suspension dramatically affect your handling and ride comfort, causing looseness in the steering wheel and body roll around corners. Your suspension is also responsible for maximising the grip that your tyres exert on the road, so a poor suspension will increase your stopping distance.

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

  • Wheel alignments
  • Shock absorbers, struts and springs
  • Wheel balancing
  • Bushing replacement
  • Power steering repairs and replacement
  • Lift kits and 4WD upgrades

If you find yourself bracing for speedbumps, get in touch today!

 

Air Conditioning

Driving in the summer without air conditioning in Darwin is brutal. Your air conditioning is unique in that it will degrade more from disuse than from use. The multitude of rubber tubing and seals that comprise your AC actually dry up and crack if not used, allowing the refrigerant gas to leak out and rob your aircon of its cooling power.

Here at All About Automotive, our expert technicians can fully repair your air conditioning, starting by replacing any broken condensers and compressors, swapping out cracked tubing, and finally, re-gassing your system with refrigerant once we’re sure it’s airtight.

If your air conditioning isn’t working, don’t sweat it! Contact one of our friendly staff today!

 

Clutch & Transmission

Responsible for transferring power from the engine to the wheels, the drivetrain is composed of some of the most precise and sophisticated machinery in your vehicle. Due to the intricate nature of the machinery, any minor flaws can quickly escalate into very costly repairs.

If you notice a clicking noise when at full turn, are having trouble changing gears, or hear a grinding noise when you do so, or notice a burning smell coming from under the bonnet after a drive, then you may have a problem with your vehicle’s drivetrain.

All About Automotive’s skilled mechanics can help you with:

  • Automatic and manual gearbox servicing
  • Transmission repairs and replacement
  • Clutch repairs

If you’ve noticed any of the warning signs mentioned above, get in touch today!

Radiators & Cooling Systems

A malfunctioning cooling system causes many different issues with your vehicle, reducing engine power, fuel efficiency and engine lifespan as leaking coolant damages the gasket, and expansion caused by overheating damages the cylinders and piston heads. If these issues are left unchecked for long enough, they will render your vehicle immobile, and the cost of repairs will be similar to the cost of a second-hand car.

Here at All About Automotive, we can help you with the following cooling system problems:

  • Radiator/heater unit repairs and replacement
  • Head gaskets
  • Coolant flush
  • Thermostat check and replacement

If your vehicle is leaking coolant, or just running hot, talk to us today!

Diagnostics & Auto Electrical

 

As modern vehicles have increased in complexity, more and more functionality is being handled by the network of onboard computers, commonly referred to as auto electrics. From starting your engine and monitoring fuel consumption to assisting with braking and gear changing, even pre-emptively putting your vehicle into limp mode when a serious issue is detected, to prevent any lasting damage, your onboard computers handle a lot of different systems in your vehicle.

All About Automotive’s skilled auto electricians can provide the following auto electrical services:

  • Full diagnostics
  • Battery test and replacement
  • Alternators and starter motors
  • Component replacement

If your check engine light is staring up at you from the dashboard, contact us today!

Tyres & Wheels

Your tyres are responsible for providing traction, especially during wet weather, where the treads act as channels to divert the water away from the contact patches. Tyre manufacturers actually design their tyres with built-in redundancies, that allow them to continue to provide acceptable grip as they wear. These designs are useless, however, if the tyres are misaligned.

Here at All About Automotive, we can help you with:

  • Tyres from major brands for all makes and models of
  • Passenger vehicles
  • 4WD
  • Tyre fitting
  • Wheel alignment
  • Tyre balancing

If your tyres are looking a bit bald, get in touch today!
