Logbook Servicing

Whenever you purchase a new vehicle, the manufacturer will provide you with a warranty that covers the cost of parts failure, for several years. This warranty is kept valid by having your car regularly serviced by a certified mechanic. The mechanic records and stamps these services in your vehicle’s logbook.

Here at Walsh Motors, our skilled mechanics are fully certified to provide logbook servicing for all:

  • Petrol passenger vehicles
  • Diesel passenger vehicles
  • LPG passenger vehicles

Vehicle Inspections

When you’re planning on selling a vehicle, you are legally required to obtain a Roadworthy Certificate before you can even advertise the vehicle for sale. Roadworthy Certificates are issued by a licensed tester after a thorough inspection which ensures your vehicle can be safely driven on Victorian roads.

If you’re thinking about buying a second-hand vehicle, we would recommend bringing it in for a pre-purchase inspection. These inspections ensure that our customers know exactly what they’re buying and helps to them avoid any nasty surprises.

When you’re organising a long road trip, or camping trip, we would strongly recommend bringing your vehicle in for a pre-trip inspection. Would you rather discover a fault in a mechanics workshop, or hundreds of kilometres from any help when the vehicle breaks down?

Here at Walsh Motors, our mechanics are licensed testers, and can happily provide Roadworthy Inspections, pre-purchase inspections, and pre-trip inspections.

Brake Services

The brakes are the most important safety system your vehicle has. While other safety systems can only mitigate the severity of an accident, your brakes can also act preventatively, and the condition of the brakes is often the difference between an accident and an emergency stop.

Your brakes suffer a surprising amount of wear, as they routinely bring over a tonne of metal to a complete stop. For this reason, we recommend having your brakes inspected at least once a year.

Here at Walsh Motors, our expert mechanics can provide the following services:

  • Brake component replacement (pads, rotors and drums)
  • Brake component machining

Steering and Suspension

Faults in your steering and suspension affect handling and ride comfort, causing play in the steering wheel and body lean through corners. Your suspension is also responsible for maximising the grip that your tyres exert on the road surface, so a poor suspension will also increase your stopping distance.

Walsh Motors’ expert mechanics can help you with:

  • Wheel alignments
  • Shock absorbers, springs and struts
  • Wheel balancing

Air Conditioning

Your AC is unique in your vehicle in that it degrades more from disuse than from use, as the rubber tubing and seals (which make up the majority of the aircon’s internals) dry up and crack when not used, allowing the refrigerant gas to leak out and rob your air conditioning of its cooling power.

Here at Walsh Motors, we can fully repair your aircon, starting by swapping out broken condensers and compressors, then replacing any cracked tubing or seals, and finally recharging your system with refrigerant gas once we’re certain it’s airtight.

Clutch and Transmission

As part of the assemblage that transfers power from the engine to the wheels, the clutch and transmission are composed of some of the most intricate and complex machinery in your vehicle. Due to their sophisticated nature, even minor flaws can quickly escalate into very costly repairs.

Here at Walsh Motors, our expert mechanics can provide you with the following services:

  • Clutch repairs
  • Automatic and manual transmission servicing
  • Automatic and manual transmission repairs

Cooling Systems

If your cooling system is malfunctioning, it can affect everything from fuel efficiency and power output, even decreasing engine lifespan, as leaking coolant and overheating damages the engine. If these problems are ignored for long enough, they can render your vehicle immobile, with the cost of repairs being comparable to that of buying a second-hand car.

Here at Walsh Motors, our expert mechanics can help you with:

  • Radiator/heater unit repairs and replacement
  • Head gasket replacement

Auto Electrical Services

As modern vehicles have increased in complexity, more and more functionality is being governed by the onboard auto electrical network. This network handles everything from monitoring fuel consumption and playing music, to assisting with braking and gear changes, even monitoring your engine bay and putting the vehicle into limp mode to prevent permanent damage.

Walsh Motors can help you with:

  • Alternators and starter motors
  • Battery check and replacement
  • Component check and replacement
  • Diagnostics

Exhaust Services

For most of us, it’s easy to remember one of the key ingredients of internal combustion: fuel. The other key ingredient that we tend to forget about, oxygen, is just as important. Your exhaust is responsible for ensuring a fresh supply of air reaches your engine, as it draws waste gases out of the engine compartment, and issues with your exhaust are going to quickly affect fuel consumption and power output.

Walsh Motor’s experienced technicians can help you with:

  • Exhaust repairs and replacement
  • Exhaust modifications and upgrades

Engine Services

Every engine has a ‘profile’ programmed by the manufacturer that governs how quickly it fires, consumes fuel, outputs power, and determines its general operation. You might think that the manufacturers would be able to set this profile to provide the best results, but they are programming to provide the best fit for the largest number of their customers possible. Many different factors can affect what is the best possible tune for an engine, and a professional tune can make huge differences to performance, fuel efficiency, and power output. It’s like the difference between a tailored and an off-the-rack suit.

Here at Walsh Motors our expert mechanics can provide you with a fully customized engine profile, utilising:

  • EFI Diagnostics
  • Dyno Tuning

Other Services

Here at Walsh Motors, we strive to deliver a comprehensive repair service for our customers, and we provide the following other services:

  • Windscreen repairs
  • Towing
  • Tyres from major brands for all makes and model of:
    • Car
