Tread and tyre pressure are the two critical factors to tyre safety. Tyres are a routine check with all vehicle services.
Air Conditioning Refills or Service from $159 incl GST
Car Air-Conditioning systems need servicing approximately every 2 years (most air conditioning systems lose approx. 10-15% per year of refrigerant gas).
This service involves discharging, recharging & lubricating your refrigerant system. Also testing your air conditioning compressor oil if applicable and changing if necessary. Lastly, an anti-bacterial treatment is used to get rid of any bacteria within the A/C lines making your air conditioning more hygienic and a lot more friendly on the nose.
Engine Flush from $149 incl GST
Available at Grey Lynn and Botany service centres.
This service is designed to keep your engine functioning as it did the day it left the factory. Once your engine oil has been drained during your annual service, we connect our Bilstein machine and pump a heated detergent solution through the oil reservoir and throughout the engine. The solution then breaks up and dissolves any sludge, gunk and debris within the engine and flushes it out. This will optimize your fuel economy and prolong the life of your engine.
Recommended every two years.
