The Truth About Wheel Alignment

We believe that to access the best wheel alignment in Toowoomba you need to have the attention and focus of a team of qualified professionals that come with years of experience. There are plenty of car enthusiasts out there who claim that they can sort out any issues you might have, however, when your vehicle requires proper care, accept nothing short of the best. Many people assume that alignment is included in the regular servicing of their car. Wheel alignment is often necessary if your car has been involved in a collision, which means that it is something that falls outside of normal servicing. There are also plenty of people that think a sudden shock experienced by driving over rough ground or by hitting a pothole can have a detrimental effect on the alignment. Typically, it takes a considerable impact to affect the alignment.

Your Local Wheel Alignment Experts in Toowoomba

At Garden City Tyre & Mechanical, we have met plenty of drivers that believed the issue with their car was to do with wheel alignment problems. The steering wheel may have been shaking, or the car was pulling to one side, and while the latter, in particular, can be the culprit, other issues can lead to these problems. A bent wheel or steering column wear and tear can result in shaking, while low tyre pressure can cause your vehicle to drift to one side. The main takeaway from all of this is that before you commit to a wheel alignment repair, it is worthwhile taking the time to drop down to your trusted local car mechanics who can help determine what the actual problem is. If you need an alignment then we will tell you, but if it’s something else that requires attention then that’s where we will advise you to focus your attention.

Brake Repairs and Servicing

At Garden City Tyre and Mechanical Toowoomba, our qualified expert mechanics can repair and service all brake systems with the latest equipment such as:

  • Replace disc pads and drum liners using high-quality Bendix brake products.
  • In-house disc and drum brake machining removing bad scores and true up warped rotors and drums, so when you apply your brakes the steering wheel won’t shake from having warped and uneven disc rotors.
  • Flush entire brake fluid system and make sure your vehicle stops when you apply the brakes. Flushing the brake system is a very important part of a service schedule, but it is often neglected as vehicles get past 4-5 years of age. Brake fluid is possibly the single most neglected component of the automobile. A lot of car owners know how to check their tire pressures and know their engine oil requires replacement at frequent intervals, but virtually no one ever changes the brake fluid in their everyday family car. Over time condensation water accumulates in the hydraulic system and can lead to catastrophic brake failure if ignored.
  • Keep you, your family and your vehicle safe by having this checked by professionals.

Engine Servicing

Petrol Upper Cylinder/Engine Cleaning

Due to new emission standards and environment regulations all modern petrol engines are now fitted with some form of EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) to comply with all the latest emission standards. Essentially, spent exhaust gasses are recirculated back into the inlet manifold to be used in the combustion process again. Oily vapor from the bottom of the crank case is also recirculated back into the inlet manifold. This causes carbon build up in vital intake components and can be a major problem if it is not regularly cleaned away from those vital engine components during regular service. Normally it is not a big problem while the vehicle is relatively new, but as the vehicle ages and get a few K’s on it can start to affect running, reliability and fuel economy greatly.
Keeping all those vital components like throttle body and sensors clean is paramount for optimal maintenance and reliability of your vehicle. If your engine has been running a bit rough, cleaning the throttle body will usually help improve vehicle fuel efficiency, performance and reduce emissions.

Diesel Upper Cylinder/Engine Cleaning

EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) on modern diesel engines, combined with a now compulsory DPF (Diesel Particle Filter) is a major source of carbon build up inside a modern high performance diesel engine. A lot of research and development has gone into reducing sod and particle emissions from these engines, but this has also resulted in a whole host of issues with carbon build up inside these engines.
New emission laws and regulations means you really have to consider investing in a few simple accessories if you are looking to have keep your vehicle for a while without facing huge repair bills.
Why haven’t my vehicle been fitted with these accessories when it was built you might ask?
Well, as usual it all comes down to cost for the manufacturer and what would work best on the assembly line that produces cars to countries around the world.
In Australia, we love our high torque diesel 4WD utes and SUVs to tow trailers and caravans or just being able to go anywhere off road for fun or to do what we have to get done.
Today’s modern diesels have their challenges, but we do stock certain additives which can help alleviate the problem to a certain extent, but fitting an Oil Catch Can to your diesel vehicle is what would make a big difference in combating this problem.
