Brakes

We know that your safety is important to you. We can keep it that way by offering you world class brake repairs backed by Jayz Auto. When you bring your vehicle to us we inspect your entire brake system to ensure the proper operation thereof. Only quality pads and discs are used and it carries a guarantee. Brake fluid is just as important as the brake pads itself. Brake fluid is hydroscopic meaning it absorbs moisture from the air. Water then accumulates in your brake system and can cause defects to your ABS pump and other brake components. One should have your brake fluid changed by a professional institution like us at least once a year.

If you are not sure if your vehicle’s brake fluid should be changed you can stop by our workshop and we will do a FREE brake fluid test.

It is very important to take care of your vehicle’s cooling system. A mixture of water and antifreeze flows through your hoses, radiator, engine and your interior heater radiator. Should your cooling system not have the required amount of antifreeze in it, rust will form and failure of the last mentioned components will happen. We can test your antifreeze content by testing the glycol with a coolant hydrometer. We can also pressure test your cooling system and advice on any leaks.

A lot of these engine suppliers wants to know that these engines are fitted by a reputable company. This is sometimes the only way that they will give you a guarantee.

We’ve had really good feedback with these imported engines and it makes financial sense!

How does the procedure work?

  • We send a technician to go and select the best engine on the floor
  • We request the company to start the engine for us before we purchase it, if possible
  • We sometimes have to build over parts from your original engine such, as mountings, filter housings, flywheel and some brackets.
  • We then fit the engine and start it up
  • We do a cooling pressure, and compression tests
  • The vehicle goes on a 200km test drive.
  • Wash and final inspection
  • You are then liable to get your new engine licensed and cleared
