Logbook Service

Most new vehicles come with a manufacturer's warranty on purchase. This warranty covers the cost of many mechanical failures, and can save the owner a substantial amount of money. However, the warranty is voided if the vehicle is not regularly serviced by a qualified mechanic, and the service is recorded in the vehicle's logbook. Even if your vehicle is out of the warranty period, logbook services are still a good idea. They increase resale value, as potential buyers will be more willing to purchase a well maintained vehicle. They are also helpful in catching small problems before they snowball into major damage, and maintenance is always better than repairs.

Here at Len Hughes and Associates we can provide logbook services for:

  • All Petrol light vehicles
  • All Diesel light vehicles
  • All LPG light vehicles
  • All Light Commercial vehicles

Steering and Suspension

While most people only really think about their suspension when they're being jostled on a bumpy road, ride comfort is really a secondary bonus that a good suspension provides. Your vehicle's suspension system is responsible for maximising the traction that your tyres get from the road, poor suspension increases your stopping distance, which can be the difference between an accident and an emergency stop.

At Len Hughes and Associates we can help you with the following steering and suspension problems:

  • Coil springs and shock absorbers
  • Bushing replacement
  • Power steering repair or replacement
  • Front end alignments

Air Conditioning

The summer can be unbearable in Australia if your air conditioning isn't working. Your vehicle's air conditioning is also responsible for defogging the windscreen in winter. Interestingly, your air conditioning degrades as much from disuse as overuse. The myriad of tubes and hosing that make up the system will slowly dry up, and cracks and leaks will form in the seals and tubes, allowing the refrigerant gas to leak out.

Len Hughes and Associates can make sure that your AC is running properly by performing leak checks, replacing tubing and faulty compressors, to regassing your aircon with refrigerant once we're certain the AC is airtight.

Clutch and Transmission

The drive train is one of the most intricate and finely tuned systems in a vehicle, and a minor fault in your transmission can quickly escalate into hugely damaging problems. If you notice a burning smell coming from under the bonnet, or hear an ominous grinding sound whenever you change gears, you should have your vehicle's transmission checked promptly.

Here at Len Hughes and Associates we can help with the following services:

  • Clutch repair or replacement
  • Automatic and manual transmission repair or replacement
  • Slip differential repair or replacement

If you're having problems with your vehicle's drive train, contact us today!

Radiator and Cooling System

If your vehicle is overheating, you are not only decreasing your fuel efficiency, but also your engine's lifespan. An engine that runs too hot will suffer damage to its gasket heads, cylinders and pistons. If your thermostat is failing then this could be happening without you even being aware.

At Len Hughes and Associates we can provide the following cooling system services:

  • Coolant flush and leak check
  • Head gasket repair or replacement
  • Heater unit repair
  • Radiator repair or replacement
  • Thermostat check

Diagnostics and Auto Electrical

With the increasing complexity of modern vehicles, more and more of the systems in your vehicle are governed by an Electronic Control Unit (ECU). If your vehicle is playing up, you can come see us and we will plug the latest diagnostic scan tools into your vehicle's onboard computer and analyse the data to determine the exact nature of the problem.

Len Hughes and Associates can help you with all auto electrical problems, including, but not limited to:

  • Diagnostics
  • Alternators and starter motors
  • Body electrics
  • Auto electrical work for classic cars
  • ABS, traction, and stability control
  • Central locking system repairs

Brake Services

The brakes are the most important safety feature your vehicle has. While other safety features mitigate the damage of an accident, well maintained brakes can prevent one altogether. If you have to choose only one thing to keep in good condition on your vehicle, please make sure it's the brakes.

Here at Len Hughes and Associates we can help you keep yourself safe with:

  • Brake component machining
  • Brake component repair or replacement
  • Brake line repairs
  • General brake services

If your brakes are spongey or you just haven't had them checked in a while, contact us today!

Wheels and Tyres

If your tyres are too worn then you will have significantly reduced traction while driving, especially in wet weather. Moreover, worn tyres vastly increase your stopping distance and your chance of skidding or spinning in emergency driving situations. Problems with your wheel alignment increases tyre wear and causes your tyres to wear in unpredictable patterns, which increases the danger of losing control.

At Len Hughes and Associates we have:

  • A wide range of major brand tyres for all makes and models
  • Tyre fitting
  • Wheel alignment
  • Wheel balancing
