Most people are aware of the need for a regular service to check car parts and components and replace anything that’s damaged or worn. Whether you do it yourself or get a professional, a detailed check will help keep your vehicle running beautifully – and save you extra dollars down the track if a small problem escalates.
Here are four car parts that you can’t forget when servicing your vehicle.
1. Engine mounts
Engine mounts are vitally important to keep your car running smoothly. They hold the engine in place, and help absorb vibration. Every car has three or four mounts – and because they support such a heavy piece of equipment, they do need regular replacement.
2. Rubber suspension
Rubber bushes cushion the area between the suspension and steering components. They need to be flexible to allow for movement, strong enough to stabilise the engine and capable of absorbing vibration. Generally, they will need replacing about every 80,000 kilometres or more often if your car gets a workout.
3. Transmission kit
The transmission channels power from the engine to the wheels – and it needs to be clean and in good condition to do the job. Our transmission kits contain all the necessary parts including a filter to stop debris entering the transmission, a transmission pan to collect excess fluid, the tube that regulates transmission fluid pressure, a rubber gasket, pickup tube and seal.
4. Air, fuel and oil filters
Filters are simple car parts that do the essential job of catching dust particles, dirt, debris, pollen or other pollutants before they enter your cabin or engine. Air and fuel filters generally require replacing every 12 months. We also specialise in top-quality Osaka oil filters, which are durable, high-performance and a great option for every car, 4WD or ute. If you change your oil, change the filter too.
