Diagnostics and Engine Tuning

An automotive mechanic should conduct a diagnostic check on your vehicle annually to ensure it is running efficiently. Rivercity Car Care mechanics conduct a diagnostic health check during every major or minor service (excluding special offers).

Many other businesses do not conduct this check during regular servicing unless the engine warning light is on.

Our car servicing mechanics in South Brisbane specialise in the diagnostics for all vehicles and will ensure all tuning and diagnostic repairs conform to manufacturer standards.

Manual and Automatic Transmissions

Many people are usually unaware of, or simply ignore their vehicle’s transmission system until a major problem occurs.

Manual and automatic transmissions can fail due to mechanical, hydraulic and electronic issues. It’s important to address these issues quickly to avoid extensive damage to your vehicle.

The following signs may indicate your transmission is malfunctioning:

  • slow or no response when changing gears
  • whining or clunking sounds
  • leaking fluid or burning smells
  • grinding or shaking
  • slipping gears
  • a dragging clutch

Our mechanics provide comprehensive transmission repair and replacement services throughout South Brisbane and can fix your car problems today.

Drive Shafts and Rear Differentials

It’s important to regularly check the universal joints on your vehicle. These connect the drive shaft to the transmission/transfer case and differential. Most universal joints are sealed and don’t require extra lubrication. However, if these are damaged you may experience operating problems with your vehicle.

It’s also important to protect and maintain integrity of the constant velocity (CV) joints. These control the rotation of your wheels and are protected by oil, grease and a CV boot. If the boot cracks or tears due to age, weather damage or other problems it should be repaired quickly to protect the CV joint and prevent failure.

If you believe your CV joint is damaged, drive slowly (at walking pace) with your windows down. If you hear a loud clicking noise while turning the wheel from side to side, your CV joint may be damaged and require replacement.

Steering and Suspension

If your driving experience isn’t as smooth as it used to be, you may have damaged the shocks, struts or springs of your suspension system. Normal road conditions can cause this type of damage over time.

Worn or damaged suspension parts may reduce vehicle stability, driver control and accelerate tire wear.

Our qualified car servicing mechanics will usually recommend a wheel alignment after repairing or servicing your vehicle’s steering or suspension. This is advisable as the replacement of parts may change existing wheel angles.

Radiators and Cooling Systems

The cooling system in your vehicle ensures your engine runs smoothly and includes the radiator, water pump, cooling fan and various hoses. These components degrade and corrode over time and this can lead to engine damage if the cooling system fails.

Our qualified car mechanics can service and repair almost every type of radiator for commercial, industrial, imported and domestic vehicles. We will use the latest state-of-the-art equipment to ensure your cooling system operates effectively. Rivercity Car Care provides high quality car services throughout South Brisbane.

Emissions and engine control systems

The emissions and engine control systems in your vehicle ensure the engine runs cleanly and efficiently in all conditions. These systems:

  • control emissions, exhausts and pollutants
  • reduce harmful gas emissions such as carbon monoxide (CO), unburned hydrocarbons (HC) and oxides of nitrogen (NOx)
  • prevent gasoline vapours escaping from the fuel tank

Your vehicle should be checked by a qualified mechanic if you experience reduced engine performance or the ‘check engine’ light appears on your dashboard. These may indicate your systems have failed and your car may be emitting pollutants. Reduced fuel economy may also result.
