Logbook Servicing

The expense of buying a new vehicle is often softened by the warranty, which gives a certain amount of peace of mind to the new car owner. Maintaining the warranty requires regular logbook servicing to keep track of potential trouble spots in your car in its early life.

We can offer logbook servicing on all makes and models of petrol, diesel, LPG, electric and hybrid vehicles, maintaining your warranty while also saving you the added expense and hassle of the dealership. To book your vehicle in for its next logbook service, give us a call today!

Roadworthy Inspections

Before you sell, transfer ownership, or re-register your vehicle for the road, it will need to be deemed roadworthy by a VicRoads-licensed vehicle tester. The experienced team at Melbourne Auto Works can conduct roadworthy inspections on all makes and models of passenger and light commercial vehicles.

We also conduct pre-purchase inspections of second-hand vehicles, to offer used car buyers an added level of confidence in their purchase. If you need to have your vehicle inspected, or want to make sure the used car you have in mind will provide value for money, give us a call and organise an inspection today.

When selling a vehicle, you will also require a completed Transfer of Registration form. You can find this form on the VicRoads website, or by clicking here.

Fleet Maintenance

We understand that a business' vehicles is its lifeblood; each day your company car or delivery van is off the road is a day your vehicle isn't recouping its cost and earning you money. That's why Melbourne Auto Works offers full fleet servicing to commercial customers

We can service a range of light commercial vehicles, including all makes and models of utes and vans, to more specialised vehicles such as the live broadcast vans for Channel 9 and Channel 10. In addition to conventional repairs, we can also keep track of your vehicles' service histories.

Diagnostics & Auto-Electrical

Sometimes problems with your vehicle are more difficult to locate. Our workshop is equipped with the latest in diagnostic scan tools, which gives us a better idea of exactly what might be wrong with your vehicle.

We're also able to conduct more conventional auto-electrical repairs, from replacing batteries, alternators and starter motors to patching up faulty wiring. To find out what else we can do for your vehicle's electrics, or to book your vehicle in for an inspection, contact us today!

Air Conditioning

In Australia's harsh and unpredictable climate, having an air conditioning system ready and able to cool your car's interior down when you need it is a necessity. But even through the cooler months, when your air conditioning is used less, it can still develop the sort of cracks and leaks that stop it from working at its fullest when the weather gets warm.

Our workshop is fully equipped to provide air conditioning services, from installation and repairs to re-gassing systems, ensuring that your summer driving is kept nice and cool. To find out more about our air conditioning services, give us a call today!

Child Restraints

When you have a child, you want them to be as safe as possible at all times, including in the car. Victorian law requires that any child travelling in a vehicle must be seated in an approved child restraint device, fitted by an approved child restraint installer.

We're authorised by ACRI to fit all manner of child restraints for your vehicle, ensuring your most important possession is as safe as can be while on the road.

To find out more about our services, or to have a child restraint fitted to your vehicle, contact us today to make a booking.

Brake Services

Your vehicle's brakes are arguably your vehicle's most important safety feature. Over time, though, your brakes are subject to as much wear and tear as any other part of your vehicle. To keep your vehicle responsive and able to stop in an instant requires that your brakes are checked for warning signs regularly.

We're able to repair or replace your brakes' components as needed, from brake pads and rotors to drums on larger vehicles, as well as check your brake fluid lines for cracks or leaks that may affect your ability to brake. We're also able to machine parts to the perfect custom fit for your vehicle.

If you suspect your brakes aren't as effective as they should be, or if you'd just like to know more, give us a call today!

Steering & Suspension

If you're experiencing body roll or other ride comfort issues, or if your car doesn't handle as responsively as it once did, the problem most likely stems from a worn component in your vehicle's suspension or steering column.

At Melbourne Auto Works we can replace faulty suspension parts, from shocks and springs to replacing your vehicle's bushing, for a smoother, less jarring ride. We're also able to repair problems with your vehicle's power steering system, and perform wheel alignments and balancing for maximum control on the road.

Clutch & Transmission

If your vehicle's having trouble staying in gear, or strange noises or smells are coming from under the hood, it can be an early indicator of trouble in your vehicle's transmission; this can become a major liability if not found and fixed early.

Our experienced mechanics are able to service your vehicle's drivetrain, from sticking clutch pedal and other issues with your clutch to a comprehensive service of your vehicle's manual or automatic transmission, including repairs or complete replacement if necessary. If your vehicle's having gear trouble, organise a service with Melbourne Auto Works by calling us today!

Radiators & Cooling

A healthy engine needs to be kept at its optimum temperature to get the most out of it. Any hotter and your engine could develop serious faults that could bring your vehicle to a stop at any time. If your vehicle's overheating, drive very carefully to Melbourne Auto Works for an inspection to avoid further damage to your car.

We're able to conduct repairs to your vehicle's radiator and cooling system, from repairing or replacing your vehicle's radiator and heater units to replacing your vehicle's head gaskets, replacing faulty thermostats, and giving your system a coolant flush to clear out blockages or clogs. If your vehicle's running hotter than usual, give us a call today!

Exhaust Services

A good exhaust system is crucial to your engine's health, drawing spent air away from the vehicle to allow for your engine to breathe. Problems with your exhaust can result in various performance issues, from power loss to excess fuel consumption.

We can repair your damaged exhaust, or replace it with an aftermarket muffler or extractor, keeping the air in your engine clear and ensuring optimum performance. To find out more, give us a call today!

Other Services

We can supply, fit and balance a wide range of tyres for all makes and models of passenger or commercial vehicle. We'll have something in stock to suit your specific needs.

We also offer a range of repairs and services for trailers, including brake systems, suspension and wiring, as well as organise for replacement windscreens. In addition, as an RACV Accredited Auto Care Centre, we can coordinate for a towing service to collect your vehicle and bring it straight to our workshop for repairs.
