Car & 4WD Underbody Inspect Report, Highway Auto Rockhampton

Underbody inspection checks for damaged brake lines, leaks in exhaust system, catalytic converter health, steering, fuel lines, brake pads, speed sensors etc.

Your car will be safer with regular inspections of control arms and underbody.

car underbody inspection and servicing rockhampton Control arms play an important role for your car's suspension system. Control arms and their support bushings can wear down over time and need to be replaced.

Despite being hidden away under your vehicle, control arms, also known as an A-arm are a critical component of your car’s suspension system that allow your wheels to smoothly go up and down and maintain a good grip of the road surface.

Is Your Car, SUV or 4WD More Than 4 years Old? It Would be Due for a Comprehensive Underbody Going-over.

88 point inspection of car underbody Vehicle wear and tear is inevitable but you can slow the process and have your vehicle safe and reliable with periodic underbody inspections this will cost you less in repairs and maintenance.

There are numerous protective components that seal out water and abrasives and general road grime. If any of these seals are damaged then the wear rate is accelerated and major components like control arm bushings, CV joint boots, steering rack rubber boots, shock absorber bushings, brake sensors and the list goes on will fail prematurely and long short of their use by date.

Tail shaft, Exhaust System, Transmission, Differential, Sway bars, CV shafts, Suspension bushings are all hidden away beneath your vehicle. Maybe it’s time for a health check?

pic of car underbody These vehicle components are out of sight so you may not know they exist until you experience a failure of one or more.

The tail shaft connects your gearbox or automatic transmission to the differential via two or more universal joints which are subject to wear, these become a serious safety concern when a certain wear limit is reached. The tail shaft is liable to drop off and your car would then somersault just like a high jumper uses the pole to launch over the bar.

Your exhaust system has a number of components which need to be checked from time to time. At the engine exhaust outlet is the oxygen sensor which conveys to the engine control computer information on combustion, next is the Catalytic Convertor which turns the harmful chemicals in vehicle exhausts into harmless gases such as steam. This device will clog up and restrict the flow of exhaust gas causing loss of performance and increased fuel consumption and should be checked from time to time. Last but not least is the sound deadening mufflers which also should be inspected for leaks and secure attachment.

How Do I Know if I Need New Struts?

pic of suspension strut Over time, your struts will begin to wear down. Here are some of the warning signs they need replaced and how much they cost.

The job of your car’s struts is to keep it balanced and flat on the road and to keep the tyre in firm contact with the road surface. Driving with worn out struts would cause your car to continuously bounce and be a challenge to drive. This condition also presents a serious risk to roadholding and braking performance.

Although struts are a reliable, long-lasting component, they do occasionally break down and need to be replaced, this is another good reason for an underbody inspection and evaluation.

Here are a few things to know about your car’s struts:

Struts incorporate many suspension assembly parts, such as the coil spring and shock absorber, and affect your car’s steering and alignment. They provide support to the vehicle’s suspension springs. Their main job is to act as shock absorbers to support the weight of the vehicle and ensure a smooth ride with good tyre/road contact.
