Logbook Servicing

When you purchase a new vehicle, the manufacturer provides you with a warranty that covers the cost of mechanical parts failure. This warranty is only valid if you regularly have your vehicle serviced by a certified mechanic, who will stamp and record the servicing in your vehicle’s logbook.

The Automotive Workshop is fully certified to provide logbook services for all:

  • Petrol passenger vehicles
  • Diesel passenger vehicles
  • LPG passenger vehicles
  • Electric and hybrid passenger vehicles

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

Brake Services

The brakes are the most important safety feature your vehicle has. Your brakes are purely preventative, unlike other safety systems which merely reduce the severity of the accident. Well maintained brakes can be the difference between an accident and an emergency stop.

Your brakes suffer a surprising amount of wear. After all, every day they routinely bring tonnes of metal to a complete stop. For this reason we recommend you have your brakes checked at least once a year.

Here at The Automotive Workshop we can provide the following brake services:

  • Brake component replacement
  • Brake component machining
  • Brake line repairs and replacement
  • Handbrake repairs
  • General brake services

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

Vehicle Inspections

When you’re planning to sell or otherwise transfer ownership of a vehicle, you are legally required by the government to obtain a roadworthy certificate. The roadworthy certificate ensures that the vehicle meets the minimum safety standards to be legally driven on Tasmanian roads, and can only be issued by a licensed tester.

If you’re thinking about buying a second-hand vehicle, we would recommend taking it for a pre-purchase inspection. The pre-purchase inspection is a thorough check of the entire vehicle, to make sure you know exactly what you’re buying. We’ll also give you an estimated cost of any repair work needed, so you can make an informed decision.

If you need a roadworthy certificate or pre-purchase inspection, talk to us today!

Steering & Suspension

Defects in your vehicle’s steering and suspension drastically affect the handling and ride comfort, causing play in the steering wheel and body lean around corners, respectively. Your suspension also helps your tyres to exert grip on the road, making a well maintained suspension important for keeping a lower stopping distance.

The Automotive Workshop can provide the following steering & suspension repairs and services:

  • Shock absorbers, springs and struts
  • Bushing replacements
  • Power steering repairs

If you find your teeth rattling on bumpy roads, then get in touch with us today!

Air Conditioning

In the Australian Summer, driving without air conditioning can be virtually unbearable. Interestingly, the air conditioning system can actually degrade more from disuse than from use. The numerous rubber tubing and seals which make up a large part of your AC will dry out and crack if not used, allowing the refrigerant gas to leak out and rob your aircon of its cooling power.

The Automotive Workshop can fully repair your air conditioning, repairing or replacing faulty condensers and compressors, swapping out cracked tubing, and then de-odorising and re-gassing your AC once we’re sure it’s airtight.

If your air conditioning isn’t working, contact us today!

Clutch & Transmission

As the system which transfers power from your engine to your wheels, the drivetrain consists of some of the most intricate and precise pieces of machinery in your vehicle. Due to the complex nature of the drivetrain, any minor flaws can quickly escalate into very costly repairs.

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

Here at the Automotive Workshop our skilled mechanics can provide the following drivetrain services:

  • Clutch repairs
  • Automatic and manual gearbox repairs and servicing
  • General transmission servicing
  • Differential repairs

If you’ve noticed any of the warning signs listed above, talk to us today!

Radiators & Cooling Systems

If your cooling system is malfunctioning, it will not only reduce your fuel efficiency but also your engine lifespan. Leaking coolant damages the head gasket, and expansion caused by overheating warps the cylinders and pistons, throwing them out of alignment. If left unchecked for long enough, a faulty cooling system will destroy your engine, and the cost of repairs will be comparable with buying a second-hand car.

The Automotive Workshop can help you with any issues in your cooling system, including:

  • Radiator/heater unit repairs and replacement
  • Head gasket replacement
  • Coolant flush and leak check
  • Thermostat check and replace

If your engine is overheating or leaking coolant, get in touch today!

Diagnostics & Auto Electrical

With their growing complexity, modern cars are coming equipped with more and more sophisticated on-board computers. This network of computers monitors and handles just about every aspect of driving, from playing music and monitoring fuel consumption, to braking, transmission, and even pre-emptively putting your vehicle into limp mode when a serious fault is detected, to prevent any lasting damage.

Despite the increasingly elaborate nature of the electronics, most cars still communicate these issues to the driver in the same manner: the Check Engine Light (CEL). If your CEL lights up, you should bring your vehicle to an auto electrician as soon as you can.

The Automotive Workshop is a diagnostic fault-finding specialist. If you bring your vehicle to us, we will plug our cutting-edge diagnostic scan tools into your car’s central computer, and generate and analyse a detailed report. Once we have this report, our accomplished auto electricians can perform:

  • Battery test and replacement
  • Alternator and starter motor replacement
  • Audio installations
  • Lighting upgrades
  • Accessory installation
  • Electronic tuning

If your CEL is looking up at you from the dash, contact us today!

Tyres & Wheels

If your wheels are poorly aligned, you will find yourself with decreased handling and uneven tyre wear. This is bad because tyre manufacturers design their tyres with built in redundancies to ensure their tyres provide satisfactory traction even as they wear down. If the tyre wear is uneven, then the manufacturers have no way of predicting for it, and cannot design their tyres to compensate.

The Automotive Workshop can help you with:

  • Major tyre brands for all makes and models of car, truck and 4WD
  • Wheel alignments

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