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.

Oil + oil filter change on Honda jazz


Gold Coast QLD, Australia

2nd Feb 2022

Hi there! I am chasing someone to please do a oil change and oil filter replacement on my car. I already have the oil and filter replacement ready to go. I was going to do it myself but unfortunately I can’t undo the sump plug as I’m not strong enough. All you will need to bring is a 17mm socket. Job location is Hope island. Thanks heaps!

Steven was amazing. Trustworthy, quick, efficient and kind. He came and serviced my car for me. My car was lacking coolant (I was totally unaware) and he happily topped it up for me when that wasn’t a paid part of the job. Thanks again heaps, will definitely use you for all my future car mechanical needs! 5 stars

Auto electric - head unit not regognising subwoofe


Pacific Pines QLD, Australia

18th Jan 2022

I have a sub installed in my car. Disconnected it a few days ago, went to reconnect and it wouldn’t work. The light is green, so all good, and the same issue occurs with a known-working sub. Replaced the rca cables to see if that was the problem and no luck. Factory reset the head unit and no luck. Please help 🥲

Mark came around and my task that I couldn’t figure out for 3 hours was complete in under 10 minutes. Very happy and highly recommend 👏
