Drivetrains

Troubleshooting, repairing and solving drivetrain issues are complex and require the experience of qualified mechanics.

Most vehicle owners believe their drivetrain needs little to no maintenance. However, your drivetrain is essential to your car’s performance. Without it, there’s nothing to transfer the engine’s power to your wheels, and your vehicle won’t drive. These are some common signs that your car might have a drivetrain issue.

  • YOUR CAR WON’T ENGAGE WHILE IN GEAR.
  • YOU FEEL VIBRATIONS OR SHAKING WHILE IN GEAR.
  • IT FEELS LIKE THE GEARS ARE SLIPPING.
  • THERE’S LEAKING OR LOW TRANSMISSION FLUID.
  • YOU SMELL A BURNING SMELL.
  • THE ABS, TRACTION CONTROL, BRAKE OR CHECK ENGINE LIGHT IS ON.

    CUSTOMER TESTIMONIALS

    I was down the peninsula visiting family when my car wouldn’t start one evening. Chris from Port Phillip Automotive came and checked out the car within 20 minutes, found the problem quickly and the next day had fixed it for me. Fast, reliable and great service Daniel Kouvaras
    Have been through many different mechanics over the years. Chris and Port Phillip Automotive have been the best by far. An honest company that cares about their customers and always does a great job. Will definitely continue to use their services. Kevin Sharpe
    My Nissan Patrol kept having engine check light come on and it would constantly go into limp mode. The car had logged several codes and Nissan told me that the car would cost approx $6000 to repair. I got a second opinion through Chris, and within 3-4 minutes he found my supposed $6000 issue, it turns it out was a loose fuel line and it was a simple fix with a $1 hose clamp. Very happy with the outcome! Truckie 86
