Logbook Servicing

All new vehicles purchased in Ocean Grove and the wider area come with what’s known in the industry as a manufacturer’s warranty and for the duration period of your warranty will protect you from paying for any parts or labour, should your vehicle need repair work in the future.

However, most people are not aware that regular scheduled logbook servicing can be done at independent workshops and do not need to be completed at the dealership you bought your vehicle from.

Here at Ocean Grove Service Centre, our qualified mechanics are more than capable of helping you with logbook servicing, ensuring that your vehicle is always covered by the manufacturer’s warranty. This means that you won’t be out of pocket should any expensive repairs need to be carried out.

For logbook servicing of petrol, diesel, LPG, electric or hybrid vehicles, please get in touch with us today!

Driving around the greater Ocean Grove area without correctly functioning brakes in your motor vehicle, can be a serious recipe for disaster. Especially if traffic conditions suddenly change and you need to come to a fast emergency stop.

This is why your vehicle’s braking system is an amazing modern technological advancement and one that works hard to ensure that with every press of the brake pedal, your vehicle will come to a complete stop.

At Ocean Grove Service Centre, we are proud to offer our customers a diverse range of brake services, including:

  • Component replacement (pads, rotors, drums etc.)
  • Machining
  • Hoses
  • Restorations

If you’ve noticed that your brakes are making a squeaking noise or are not slowing your vehicle down as quickly as they should, please call us today!

Steering and Suspension

Your vehicle’s steering and suspension has the important task of ensuring that when you drive around Ocean Grove, the ride is always smooth and that you are always in control when behind the wheel.

By reducing the friction between your tyres and the road, the steering and suspension system is comprised of several different components that absorb the weight of your vehicle and also work to displace the excess energy when driving over potholes and bumps in the road.

At Ocean Grove Service Centre, our steering and suspension services include:

  • Wheel alignments
  • Shocks and springs
  • Wheel balancing
  • Bushing replacement
  • Power steering repairs
  • Power steering replacement
  • Lift kits and 4wd upgrades

For all steering and suspension inquiries or bookings, please call us today!

Exhaust Repairs and Replacement

Your vehicle’s exhaust system is tasked with the important role of removing nasty toxins and dangerous fumes from the front of your vehicle and then forcing them out through the exhaust pipe at the rear.

However, you might be surprised to learn that without regular scheduled servicing of your vehicle’s exhaust system, it may begin to degrade and not work as it should, which could potentially put yourself and loved ones in harm’s way.

At Ocean Grove Service Centre, our skilled mechanics can walk you through the process of inspecting your exhaust system and will point out any preventative repairs, maintenance or parts replacement required.

Doing so will ensure that your exhaust system does its job correctly and that dangerous fumes do not leak into your vehicle’s cabin.

For all modifications and upgrades to your vehicle’s exhaust system, please get in touch with our friendly team today!

Clutches and Transmissions

The modern-day passenger vehicle comes with a high-tech transmission, that not only allows you to change the gears in your vehicle, but also transfers the engine’s power directly to the wheels and moves you forward.

To ensure that your transmission continues to operate at its best, it’s important that it receives regular inspections at a qualified workshop and that the transmission fluid which acts as both an oil and hydraulic fluid, is drained and refilled if necessary.

At Ocean Grove Service Centre, we can assist you with the following clutch and transmission services:

  • Repairs and replacement
  • Transmission servicing
  • Manual transmissions
  • Automatic transmissions
  • Differentials
  • Constant velocity joints

If you clutch is sticking or making a grinding noise, please contact us today!

Engine Repairs

The modern passenger vehicle engine is comprised of several different mechanical components, such as the spark plugs, pistons, crankshaft, sump and valves, all of which work together to power what is referred to in the automotive industry as the beating heart of your vehicle.

However, it’s vital that your engine receives regular servicing and preventative repairs if necessary, to ensure that it continues to power your vehicle for many years to come.

At Ocean Grove Service Centre, we are proud to offer customers a complete range of engine repairs and services, including:

  • Rebuilds
  • Reconditioning
  • Testing
  • Engine blocks
  • Cylinder heads
  • Camshaft
  • Electronic Fuel Injection diagnostics

Cooling System

The modern passenger vehicle engine produces an extreme amount of heat, as the air-fuel mixture within the cylinders is ignited by the spark plugs and forces the pistons back down which in turn power your vehicle forward.

With that much power under your bonnet, a cooling system is required to keep the engine cool and to prevent your vehicle from catching on fire or overheating.

However, it is advised that to maintain the long-term health of your engine, your vehicle should be regularly serviced and should receive a coolant flush and top-up with premium liquid coolant.

At Ocean Grove Service Centre, we can help you with the following services:

  • Radiator repairs and replacement
  • Heater repairs and replacement
  • Head gaskets
  • Coolant flush
  • Thermostats

To book your vehicle in for a coolant check, please give our friendly team a call today!

Auto Electrical

Modern passenger vehicle’s auto electrical systems are made up of three primary automotive components. The starter motor, battery and alternator, all which work together to power your vehicle and enable you to drive around the roads of Ocean Grove.

However, over time these very same components can begin to degrade and not perform as they should. This means you won’t be able to start your vehicle and drive out on the road, until potentially worn parts are inspected and repaired.

At Ocean Grove Service Centre, our friendly team of skilled mechanics can assist you with a wide range of auto electrical services, including:

  • Diagnostic scans
  • Component replacements and testing (battery, alternator, etc.)
  • Audio installations
  • Lighting upgrades
  • Accessories
  • Solar and battery systems

If you suspect that your battery needs replacing or you would like to book your vehicle in for a comprehensive inspection, please give us a call today!


When driving around Ocean Grove it’s important that your tyres are properly inflated, to ensure that that they always provide your vehicle with maximum contact with the road.

However, many people fail to understand that if your tyres are not inflated correctly, they won’t be able to work correctly as they were designed.

Here at Ocean Grove Service Centre, we can help you to check that your tyres are correctly inflated, that they are not balding and are correctly aligned.

For more information or to book your car or 4×4 in for a new set of tyres, please give us a call today!


Your vehicle’s windscreen is an important safety feature that protects you from the elements outside, such as rain, hail, street dirt and small rocks, and it also gives you clear vision of what’s directly in front of your vehicle.

However, over time and through no fault of your own, your windscreen can become dotted with small chips in the laminated glass and if not repaired in a timely manner could lead to your windscreen shattering.

At Ocean Grove Service Centre, our highly skilled mechanics can assist you with inspecting, repairing and if necessary replacing your vehicle’s windscreen.

To book your vehicle in at the workshop for a windscreen inspection, please give us a call today!
