Engine Rebuilds

Get your engine rebuilt by the professionals.

Signs you may need an engine rebuild:

  • Smoke coming out of the exhaust
  • Exhaust stains on the rear of your car or garage floor
  • Lack of power, especially when putting the foot down
  • Strange knocking noises from the engine
  • Small pieces of metal in the oil
  • Excessive use of oil
  • A sudden loud bang from the engine
  • Engine seizing when hot or lacking oil

A reputable mechanic can inspect your engine and determine what parts need to be replaced to restore it to good working order. While a complete rebuild may not be necessary, many parts in your engine will likely need replacing after years of wear and tear. With a properly rebuilt engine, your car will return to its old self in no time.

Suspension Repairs

Keep your family safe with our expert suspension repairs.

If your suspension system isn't working properly, it can lead to several problems with your car. Your wheels and tyres may come off the road, which can be dangerous. Additionally, your steering, braking, and driving systems may not work as well as they should, making it difficult to control your car and potentially increasing the risk of accidents.

At McCracken's Automotive, we can replace suspension components and shock absorbers or struts to get your car back to working properly. We can also perform wheel alignments to ensure that your tyres are always in contact with the road. This will help improve your car's stability and safety. Don't take chances with your safety - bring your car to McCracken's Automotive for all your suspension needs.

Brake Servicing & Repairs

Stop when you need to.

Brakes are a critical vehicle safety system and should be checked at every service. A typical brake service usually includes:

  • Replacing brake pads and rotors.
  • Resurfacing rotors.
  • Inspecting the brake fluid condition.
  • Checking the park brake operation.

Make sure to never interfere with your vehicle's brakes if you don't have the appropriate skills, experience, and tools. Always take your vehicle to a qualified mechanic when you need brake servicing or repairs.
