Logbook Servicing

When you purchase a new vehicle, the manufacturer provides you with a warranty that covers the cost of parts failure. This warranty (which usually lasts around 5 years or so) is only valid as long as you have your vehicle regularly serviced by a certified mechanic, who records and stamps these services in your vehicle’s logbook.

Here at Jalmac Automotive, our expert mechanics are fully certified to provide logbook servicing for all:

  • Petrol vehicles
  • Diesel vehicles
  • LPG vehicles
  • Electric/hybrid vehicles

Roadworthy Certificates

If you’re planning on selling or otherwise transferring ownership of a vehicle, you must first ensure it has a valid roadworthy certificate. The roadworthy certificate, issued only by a licensed tester after a thorough inspection, that ensures your vehicle meets the safety standards to be legally driven on Victorian roads.

Jalmac Automotive’s expert mechanics are licensed testers, ready to provide your vehicle with the Roadworthy Certificate after thorough testing..

Steering & Suspension

Flaws in your vehicle’s steering and suspension affect handling and ride comfort, causing play in the steering wheel and body lean through corners. Your suspension is also responsible for maximising the grip that your tyres exert on the road surface, so a poor suspension will also increase your stopping distance.

Here at Jalmac Automotive, our expert technicians can help you with:

  • Shock absorbers, struts and springs
  • Bushing replacement
  • Power steering repairs and replacement

Air Conditioning

Nothing ruins a summer drive faster than faulty air conditioning. Your air conditioning degrades more from disuse than from use, as the rubber tubing that comprises the majority of the AC system dries up and cracks, allowing the refrigerant gas to leak out and rob your aircon of its cooling power.

Here at Jalmac Automotive our team of experts can fully repair your air conditioning, starting by replacing faulty condensers and compressors, then swapping out cracked tubing, and finally recharging your system with refrigerant gas once we’re certain it’s airtight.

Clutch & Transmission

As part of the assemblage that transfers power from the engine to the wheels, your clutch and transmission is composed of some of the most intricate and precise machinery in your vehicle. Due to their sophisticated nature,  even minor flaws can quickly escalate into very costly repairs. If you have trouble changing gears, or hear a grinding noise when you do so, or notice a burning smell coming from under the bonnet after a drive, you may have an issue with your vehicle’s transmission.

Jalmac Automotive’s skilled mechanics can help you with:

  • Clutch repairs
  • Automatic and manual transmission repairs and servicing

Cooling Systems & Radiators

If your cooling system is malfunctioning, it can cause myriad problems, from reduce fuel efficiency and engine power, to decreased engine lifespan as leaking coolant and overheating damages the engine block. If these problems are ignored for long enough, they will render your vehicle immobile, with the cost of repairs being comparable to buying a secondhand car.

Here at Jalmac Automotive, our expert mechanics can help you with:

  • Radiator/ heater unit repairs
  • Coolant flush and leak check
  • Thermostat check and replacement

Auto Electrical Services

As modern vehicles have increased in complexity, more and more functionality is being governed by the onboard auto electrical network. This network handles everything from playing music and monitoring fuel consumption, to assisting with braking and gear changing, even putting their vehicle into limp mode if a serious flaw is detected, to prevent any lasting damage.

Here at Jalmac Automotive, our auto electricians can help you with:

  • Alternators and starter motors
  • Battery check and replacement
  • Component test and replacement
  • Diagnostics
  • Lighting upgrades
  • Audio installations
  • Accessory installations
  • Solar/battery systems

Brake Services

Your brakes are the most important safety feature your vehicle has. While other safety systems reduce the severity of a collision, your brakes can also act preventatively, and the condition of your brakes is often the deciding factor between an accident and an emergency stop. Your brakes endure an astronomical amount of wear, bringing over a tonne of metal to complete stop, several times a day. For this reason we agree with brake manufacturers that you should have your brakes checked at least once a year.

Jalmac Automotive’s expert mechanics can help with:

  • Brake component replacement
  • Brake component machining
  • Brake hose repairs
  • Brake restorations
