The transmission is a very key part of your engine and repairs, or replacements are incredibly expensive. Keep major problems from arising by having your clutch inspected often and replaced when needed.

timining belt


A timing belt keeps all the valves and pistons moving in your vehicle to keep it safe. A slip or break in your timing belt can cause your entire engine to be ruined. Visit our car service shop for repairs & maintenance to have your timing belt replaced in accordance with the recommended schedule to prevent problems from arising.

Regularly see Andrew and Ray at the service interval for my high end European vehicle servicing needs... When I bought the car I was worried about who could service it in Wollongong, I spoke to Andrew and I have never looked back. I have recommended all my friends to Andrew for the service and their pricing.
