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.

Diesel mechanic

$250

Rowville VIC 3178, Australia

24th Dec 2021

Looking for a diesel mechanic to bleed my tractors fuel system. I bought a second hand Massey Fergusson 550 tractor and it ran out of fuel (even though the fuel gauge said half) and now I have to pump the fuel line etc which I’m not familiar with and need some help. I have completed 4 out of the 5 stages to complete it but got stuck at the last instruction. Also, I have a twin seater buggy which needs a little looking at. Some small issue with the fuel line which doesn’t make it go properly. Whoever comes must meet me at the pier on French island where I will pick you up from and take you back to the ferry. The ferry will cost you $27.00 round trip which you should include in your offer along with your labour as well. No need to bring tools as I already have some. There are mechanics on the island however are not available due to Christmas etc.

Looking to buy a Nissan X Trail. I need a qualified mechanic to do a pre purchase inspection. Looking for the normal things to be checked such as the engine, rust, lights, breaking, fault codes etc. I am located in Melbourne but the car is in Phillip Island so I would not be present. The current owner is very happy to have someone check it out at the house.

Muni was very quick to respond and easy to communicate with. He did all the checks I wanted and was honest about the state of the car. He provided advice about what he would do and advised on future problems and potential repairs. Five stars!!
