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.

Car mechanic to fix potential transmission issue


Hoppers Crossing VIC 3029, Australia

4th Feb 2023

My car (VW Golf 2014) is making a weird noise and i think it might be in relation to transmission (I could be wrong though).

We just moved to Hoppers Crossing last year from the northern suburbs so our current mechanic is 45kms away from our current address. We are therefore looking for someone to come to me to look at the issue and fix it. If we are happy with the service, we will also consider moving all future servicing for my car and my partner's car to you. Car was last serviced on 29 December 2022.

Pioneer AVH-A215BT car head unit bluetooth issue

28th Oct 2022

Electrician installed pioneer AVH-A215BT two years before but since then I never get the option of removing bluetooth device. Now the device memory is full and I can't connect new device. I did some research and found that media player wire should be connected to the manual brake. When the brake is ON the bluetooth settings would be active. Therefore, I need someone expert who has done this before for this model head unit. - Due date: Flexible - Due date: Before Friday, 4 November 2022

Car mechanic needed - Point Cook


Point Cook VIC 3030, Australia

23rd Sep 2022

Hiya, my RAV4 coolant is disappearing, no leak, nasty noise coming from engine. My mate says it's not the head gasket if the coolant hasn't made the oil custard like and is more likely a water pump or radiator leak. Can you bid for coming out to me in Point Cook to investigate and quote for repairs please?

Charged me an extortionate amount of money for partial repairs to a vehicle that I found out today is beyond repair, as an experienced reputable mechanic you should have identified that yourself and let me know so I could cut my losses, not charged me $300 purely for your travel time PLUS an extra $650 that you insisted be paid via bank transfer (outside of Airtasker) for repairs to a vehicle that clearly was not worth fixing. You should be ashamed of yourself.
