Oil Change Paraparaumu

Did you know?

You should have an oil change regularly; irrespective of how many kilometers the vehicle has driven. If a vehicle has not used much, the oil in the engine still needs to be flushed and replaced. Old oil can degrade an engine, even when the vehicle is sitting in the garage.

A clean car exhaust system is a sign that your vehicle is running well. If your car exhaust seems loud or is dirty, it’s best to get it checked out.

We can inspect your exhaust system in as little as 10 minutes, and exhaust inspections are included in all vehicle services. The team will also check that your car exhaust system is not leaking, which can lead to carbon monoxide fumes being released inside your vehicle.

We can install and repair both standard and modified car exhaust systems on vehicles and on all shapes and sizes.


Brakes Paraparaumu

If your brakes are squealing, pulling the vehicle to one side or making your steering wheel shake, then it’s time to pop in and see the team at German Automotive.

Brakes can degrade slowly due to simple wear and tear, which can make it difficult for vehicle owners to see the change. We can test your braking system and make any repairs necessary. Brake hoses and fluid can also be checked and replaced if required.

If you have any problems, or notice changes in your vehicle’s braking performance, come in and see us. Sometimes it can be a simple case of brake dust causing the brakes to squeal, but our technicians will identify and fix the problem, giving you peace of mind.

Cambelt / Timing belt

Cambelt Paraparaumu

If your engine has a timing belt/cambelt this belt should be changed every 100 000kms or 5 years on most vehicles whichever comes first. (Some engines require as low as 60 000kms). In some engines there are 2 belts, a cambelt/timing belt or a balance belt. If you are unsure contact us with your make and model and one of our team members will advise.

Suspension ensures Tyres are kept in contact with the road surface, and removes road shock.

Steering – Is your vehicle veering to one side when the steering wheel is straight? Or if you can hear noises when your vehicle is turning, you may have a suspension issue or it may also be a Wheel Alignment issue.
