Mobile Lube Service Petrie
With a lube service or oil service the engine oil and engine oil filter is changed with a general check over of the vehicle. It is always advisable to use the right grade and type of oil for the lube service. The grade and type of oil normally also have a great impact on the price of the service. A normal multi grade oil is the cheapest of all, but not advisable for the use in vehicles that have an extended time or distance before the service is due. Multi grade oils used in an oil service are usually only suited for a maximum of 10 000km and thereafter start to brake down. Semi synthetic and Full Synthetic oils used in a lube service are always the better choice, as it last longer in most instances. Always remember that the vehicle manufacturer determines what oil is to be used in a lube service and should always be adhered to, as it will minimise any risk of engine damage. The oil filter is also changed with the oil service. Oil filters normally comes in two types – a cartridge or a screw on canister. A quality filter with a good supplier warranty should always be used and can be found at various aftermarket parts stores or the original manufacturer.
Mobile Log Book Service Petrie
With a log book service you normally refer to the log book of the vehicle manufacturer. Most instances it is a lube service with some extra parts that should be changed. It can be an air filter, cabin filter for the air conditioner, fuel filter, spark plugs, brake fluid change, steering fluid change, transmission fluid and transmission filter change, timing belt and timing belt tensioner and roller change, drive belt, drive belt tensioner and drive belt roller change, wiper blades, and many more other unmentioned parts. It is important to keep to the specifications in the log book, but always advisable to change any service part that is worn beyond specification or defective.
Mobile Brake Change Petrie
When changing the brake pads of a vehicle the following should also be kept in mind: the quality and wear on the rotors or drums and the quality of the brake fluid in the system. All rotors have a minimum thickness and should be free from an outer deep outer edge, deep grooves or uneven surface. If any of the above mentioned is present a brake pads and rotor change should be done at the same time to ensure even braking and the elimination of a brake squeal.

If you don’t know what is wrong with your vehicle, or you are unsure, or just need the reset of a light, or coding of injectors, and you don’t have the right diagnostic tool to complete the job, call us. We do mobile diagnostics with the latest aftermarket diagnostic machines. Just note that we have a minimum call out fee for this type of service we provide.
Mobile Automatic Gearbox Service Petrie
Most automatic gearboxes can be serviced by replacing the oil and oil filter. Caution should always be taken that the correct oil is used in the automatic gearbox service. Oil should also be filled to the right level, as too little can cause a slip and hard change of gears, or too much oil might cause an oil leak or blow out seals after the automatic gearbox service was done.
Mobile Timing Belt Change Petrie
A timing belt is one of the critical service components of the engine. The timing belt change should be done on or before the specified time indicated. It is important to know that if the timing belt fail you will 90% of the time end up with engine damage and need to remove the cylinder head to repair bent valves or more, and in most instances leads to an engine change rather than repair, because of the high cost of labour.
Mobile Drive Belt Change Petrie
The drive belt on the outside of the engine that drives various components should be checked when a service is done to prevent failure. A squealing belt is also an indication of a belt that has the wrong tension or is starting to fail. It is not as critical as the timing belt but could also cause much damage if it fails and you keep on driving in that condition. When a drive belt change is done, the rollers, tensioners and other pulleys it runs on, should be checked and changed if needed as it can also cause a drive belt failure before the time.
Mobile Alternator Change Petrie
An alternator should charge anything from 13.6V up to 14.8V. Anything under the minimum will lead to battery drain and anything above it will lead to over charge that can damage your electrical components and battery damage. An alternator change or repair is suggested in any of the above mentioned instances. An under charge is normally detected by the red battery light that is burning on the instrument cluster.
Mobile Mechanical Inspection Petrie and Mobile Pre-Purchase Inspection Petrie
The Mechanical inspection is almost the same as the Pre-Purchase inspection. The mechanical inspection focuses on the mechanical side and is almost the same as a roadworthy inspection, whereas the pre-purchase inspection is a bit more of an opinion about the general condition of the vehicle. Remember that the focus of a roadworthy is on the safety and driveability of the vehicle for the period of two months or 2000km. The pre-purchase inspection is a check over of the vehicle and includes extra checks like the overall interior of the vehicle and therefore takes a bit more time and is consequently the more costly inspection of the two.
Mobile Battery Change Petrie
If your vehicle has a hard start, or does not start at all and you suspect it might be the battery, don’t be hesitant to tell us. By this we can be prepared when we come to you for the diagnostic or fault finding, as we have minimum charge for a call out or battery change.
With the winter months on our doorstep, a none start might be the cause of a dead/flat battery. This may be detected by no or very dim instrument lights, either/or a fast ticking sound in the engine, but the engine does not turn.
It is advisable, if you suspect your vehicle battery is on its way out, to visit a battery centre to test the battery, as their testing machine can determine if a battery change is needed.
Mobile Headlamp Cleaning Petrie or Headlight Restoration Petrie
Most of the vehicles on the road is fitted out with plastic headlamp covers and fades or turn yellow from exposure to the sun. Instead of headlamp replacement you can consider headlamp cleaning or headlight restoration for a fraction of the price of a new lamp. One must remember that a headlamp restoration or headlight cleaning just lasts over 12 months and should be repeated in the future. Give us a call for a headlamp clean if you consider this option.
