What does a mechanic service usually include?

Mechanics are skilled in nearly all aspects of keeping your car maintained, serviced, and repaired, so it’s roadworthy and efficient to run. The exact process during your service will depend on how your mechanic prefers to work and the type of tasks they’re doing, like:

Minor service

This is the most basic engine service a mechanic provides, but it can make a huge difference in whether or not your car can operate efficiently. A minor service usually alternates with a major service, at around the 6-month mark. A mechanic near you can do minor services because your mechanic only needs a flat service to get the job done. They’ll unscrew the sump plug, allowing old oil to drain from your car. Then they’ll remove the old oil filter and replace with a new one that’s the right size for your vehicle. Your mechanic will dispose of your old filter and oil. They’ll also inspect other key components, like your battery, lights, air filters, and other fluids.

Log book servicing / major service

A major service or log book service involves a series of steps in line with your vehicle manufacturer’s service manual. It’ll include a combination of major and minor services, depending on the age of your car, or how many kilometres it’s travelled. Your service may include testing your lights, brakes, and battery. Then checking fluid levels, windscreen wipers, windows, mirrors, steering, suspension, radiator, fan belts, and tyre pressure. Finally, it may also include maintaining/replacing oil filters, hoses, belts, tyres, and wheel alignment. Your mechanic will finish off by stamping your logbook to record the services completed, which can help maintain your car’s resale value.

Roadworthy certificate or pink slip

A roadworthy certificate or pink slip is a specific vehicle check that’s conducted to ensure your car is in a roadworthy condition and can be operated safely. In some states, it’s required when selling a car or may be required each year to confirm your vehicle is safe for registration purposes. A mechanic will check off a list of predetermined items to verify that your car meets a minimum safety standard set out by your state government. They’ll focus on safety, checking things like tyres, brakes, steering, suspension, rust or damage, seatbelts, windows, lights, and your windscreen.

Major and minor repairs

Sometimes your car might need a little extra attention if you’ve had an accident, broken down, or your drive feels a bit different to normal. A car mechanic can perform minor and major repairs on most vehicles. They’ll use diagnostic equipment to locate the issue and decide on a course of action to get your car back on the road. If they don’t have the necessary spare parts, they may need to order them to finish off your repair and replace any faulty parts. Note that a mechanic service is usually limited to your car’s engine and electrics. It’s best to speak to a panel beater if you also have external body damage.

Motorcycle Mechanic Pre Purchase Inspection


Newport VIC, Australia

21st Apr 2024

I am keen to line up a Mobile Mechanic for a pre-purchase inspection for a second hand motorcycle. I’m yet to arrange the actual motorcycle but once we find the right option, I was keen to move fairly quickly to have that bike inspected. Mechanic needs to be suitably qualified and experience to carry out the task. As you can appreciate, I will also need a certain amount of flexibility once the bike is chosen. I am trying to prepare, as I don’t want to be stressing about this issue once the bike is selected. I hope this approach makes sense. Due date: Flexible once we find the right motorcycle.

Subaru WRX 2015 Head unit install

I have a 2015 (MY2015) Subaru WRX Premium with the Harman Kardon speaker set. The head unit is crap and I'm looking to upgrade. Alpine, JVC, Kenwood, Sony would do. Not looking for a cheap Ali Xpress job. Happy for you to recommend something. I'd like to retain the current carbon fiber trim as it's stock and really suits the car, the reverse camera and steering wheel controls. I also have a dash cam independent of the head unit. Thank you!
