Our Vehicle Repairs Services

Tune Ups with the Latest Diagnostic Scanners

Has your car been running rough lately? Is there a strange light showing on your dashboard?

At Motor Works, we use the latest diagnostic scanners to identify and troubleshoot potential hiccups with your engine’s health before they turn into dangerous and expensive problems.

Brake System Repairs and Replacements

If you’re after new brake pads, drums, or discs, or a full braking system service Motor Works has it under control.

Here are some signs that you need to get your brakes checked

  • Your brake warning light is on
  • Your brakes are making squealing or grinding noises.
  • Your brake pedal feels different
  • Your vehicle is pulling to one side
  • Your steering wheel feels shakey

Clutch Repairs

If your clutch is worn out and needs repairing or replacing, the team at Motor Works can help.

Here are some warning signs that your clutch may need replacing:

  • The clutch is shuddering
  • You have difficulty changing gears
  • Its noisy when you switch gears
  • Your revs are high when you start, or drive up hills.
  • Your clutch feels soft or higher up than usual
  • Your clutch pedal feels stiff or is staying on the ground

Automatic Transmission Repairs and Servicing

Having trouble changing gears? Motor Works’ qualified technicians can diagnose, repair and rebuild your automatic transmission or gearbox.

Cam Belt Replacements

Your car’s cam belt (or timing belt) is an essential part of the engine that works to keep the engine in time, protecting valves from hitting the pistons. Typically, a cambelt will need to be replaced every 100,000km or every five years – whichever comes first.

Exhaust Repairs and Replacements

Are there loud noises or strong fumes coming from your exhaust? At Motor Works we can check over your petrol or diesel vehicle and see if it requires any exhaust repairs or replacement. Don’t get caught out with a smokey car, it’s unsafe and could land you with a hefty fine.

Full Tyre Service and Tyre Replacements

If your tyres are damaged or have less than the legal minimum of 1.5mm of tread, it’s time for a tyre replacement.
Motor Works can replace your old worn tyres. We also provides a full tyre service and repairs including wheel alignment, puncture repair, tyre inflation, and much more.

CV and Steering Rack Boot Replacement

That annoying clicking sound when your car turns could lead to a major disaster if left unattended.

CV & Steering rack boots are protective rubber covers that prevent dirt and water from getting into vital engine parts & lock in lubricant to keep them running smoothly. If your CV & Steering rack boots are worn or torn you should get them replaced quickly to avoid costly repairs from damaging the components underneath.


Fuel System Cleaning

At Motor Works we have the latest fuel system cleaner for petrol & diesel vehicles.
