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

$100

Hawthorne QLD, Australia

14th Jan 2022

My Kawasaki Ninja 250R 2010 with 11,000 km's recently failed a RWC where it was identified that the front head stem bearings needed replacement due to having 'excess play'. I was told by another mechanic that this was incredibly unlikely & unusual given the minimal Km's and thus suggested that the bearings likely only required an adjustment. As such, I am in need of a motorcycle mechanic to assess and 'repair' the issue for the bike to be able to pass a RWC. - Due date: Flexible

Efficient, punctual and kindest demeanour. Thanks Steve.

Mechanic needed

$100

Fortitude Valley QLD, Australia

13th Dec 2021

I have a 2011 Mazda 2 hatchback. Recently my radiator ran out of coolant completely and my engine started overheating. I’ve poured 6 litres of coolant into the car and it’s been perfectly fine since then, however I’m about to do a drive from Brisbane to Melbourne. I don’t know anything about cars but I have been told my multiple people that the radiator is not supposed to run out of coolant. Would appreciate someone QUALIFIED, who can inspect my engine and potentially fix any leaks?? I have no idea what the average price is to fix the problem so make an offer?

Very helpful, kind and went above and beyond.
