All vehicles get a complete check over including oil, air and fuel filter, spark plugs, breaks, tyres and suspension. We check all fluid levels for brakes, power steering fluid, coolant, washer bottle and wiper blades, lights and spare wheel. Every mechanic takes each vehicle through a 28 point checklist to ensure that all cars pass our rigorous testing. We have up to date diagnostic equipment to reset all service lights and fault lights.
Pre NCT & DOE Checks
Vehicles are checked over using the same procedures as our general service inspection with the addition of having their emissions checked and head lights adjusted. Pre-NCT & DOE checks are essential to minimising the chance of failure during the test.
Timing Belts & Timing Chains
Timing belts and timing chains can be fitted on most makes of cars, vans and 4x4s. We fit timing belt kits and water pumps to all vehicles when the manufacturer recommends replacing. Generall manufacturers don’t recommend timing chain replacement so they are changed when noisy or have stretched and caused the timing to be out.
We fit 3 piece clutch kits to all makes of cars, vans and 4x4s. We also fit D.M.F. (Dual Mass Flyerwheels) when necessary which are nearly standard on al large petrol and diesel cars. All clutch forks are inspected and lubrictated and we replace hydraulic bearings with all our clutch kits.
The upkeep of your suspension joints is very important for tyre wear and for safety purposes. If a vehicle’s suspension is not maintained, it can lead to poor handling when taking corners, travelling on bad roads or in poor weather conditions. At Rodney Evans Motors, we replace shock absorbers, suspension springs, wish bones, track rod ends, inner tie rod ends, anti-roll bar bushes and links.
We use the latest software with the latest Brain Bee ST9000 ‘BTouch’ system. This can check hundreds of electronic parts in your car. IT can find faults in SRS/Airbag systems, ABS brakes, Body Electronics and Emission Systems.
Wheel Alignment & Tracking
During this procedure your car’s front and rear tracking is checked and we check and adjust all camber angles where necessary. This helps to increase the life of your tyres and other mechanical parts such as the suspension.
We can test all emissions systems and replace all catallitic converters and oxygen sensors when required. We also supply and fit all exhaust boxes and can weld in repairs when needed.
