Whenever you purchase a new vehicle, the manufacturer provides you with a warranty that will cover the cost of any mechanical parts failures. This warranty is only valid if you regularly have your vehicle serviced by a certified mechanic, who will record and stamp the servicing in your logbook.
Here at Caves Mechanical Services we are fully equipped and certified to provide logbook services for all makes and models of petrol passenger vehicles, so to book your next service with us, get in touch today!Click Here
The brakes are the most important safety feature your vehicle has. While other safety systems are designed to mitigate the severity of an accident, your brakes are an anticipatory system, and well maintained brakes can often mean the difference between an emergency stop and an accident. Caves Mechanical Services’ skilled mechanics can perform the following brake repairs:
- Brake component replacement
- Brake fluid flushing
- Brake hose repairs
- Brake restorations
If your brakes feel spongy, or you just haven’t had them checked in a while, contact us today!Click Here
If you need to license a vehicle, remove a compliance notice (sometimes known as a yellow sticker), or you have modified your vehicle, you are legally required to have your vehicle examined by an Approved Inspection Station (AIS). The vehicle examination ensures your vehicle is in such a condition that it can be safely driven on the roads of WA.
When you’re thinking about buying a second-hand vehicle, we recommend taking it for a pre-purchase inspection. The pre-purchase inspection is a thorough check that ensures that you get no nasty surprises after the transaction, and here at Caves Mechanical Services we also provide you with an estimated cost of repairs for you to factor into your buying decision.

If you need a vehicle examination or a pre-purchase inspection, Caves Mechanical Services is an Approved Inspection Station, and we also happily perform pre-purchase inspections for the savvy customer, so talk to one of our friendly staff today!Click Here
Steering & Suspension
Defects in your steering & suspension dramatically affect your handling and ride comfort, causing play in the steering wheel and body lean around corners. Your suspension is also responsible for magnifying the grip that your tyres exert on the road surface, and a poor suspension will substantially increase your stopping distance.
Here at Caves Mechanical Service we can help with the following steering and suspension problems:
- Shock absorbers, springs and struts
- Bushing replacement
- Power steering repairs and replacement
- Lift kits and 4WD upgrades

We don’t need to tell you how hot it can get in WA during the summer. We believe that air conditioning for your vehicle is practically a necessity in these times. Interestingly, the air conditioning is a system which degrades more from disuse than from use. The myriad of rubber tubing and seals which make up your AC systems will dry up and crack if not used, allowing the refrigerant gas to leak out, robbing your aircon of its cooling power.
If your air conditioning is playing up, don’t sweat it this summer, contact us today!!Click Here
Clutch & Transmission
The drivetrain is composed of some of the most intricate and precise pieces of machinery in your vehicle. Responsible for transferring power from the engine to the wheels, the sophistication of the drivetrain means that any minor flaws can quickly escalate into very costly repairs.
If you notice a clicking noise at full turn, have trouble changing gears or hear a grinding/clunking noise when you do, or you notice a burning smell coming from under the bonnet, you may have a problem with your vehicle’s drivetrain.
Here at Caves Mechanical Services, our expert mechanics can perform the following drivetrain services:
- Clutch repairs
- Automatic transmission repairs and service
- Manual transmission repairs and service

Radiators & Cooling Systems
If your cooling system is malfunctioning, it will cause a range of problems from minor to disastrous. On the minor end, your vehicle will lose fuel efficiency and power, and on the major end of the scale, your engine lifespan will be shortened, as leaking coolant damages the gasket head, and expansion caused by overheating will damage the cylinders and cylinder heads.
If these problems are ignored for long enough, you will render your vehicle undriveable, and the cost of repairs will be comparable to buying a second-hand car.
Caves Mechanical Services can help you with:
- Radiator/heater unit repairs and replacement
- Head gasket replacement
- Coolant flush and leak check
- Thermostat check and replacement

Diagnostics & Auto Electrical
Your vehicle’s on-board electronics manage a dizzying array of different functions. From playing music and monitoring fuel consumption, to assisting with braking and transmission, even putting your vehicle into limp mode if the network detects a serious fault, to prevent lasting damage to the vehicle.
Despite their high level of sophistication, most auto electrical systems still only have the one way to communicate with the driver: the check engine light. To get the full story from your computer you will need diagnostics.
If you bring your vehicle to Caves Mechanical Services we can plug our top-of-the-line diagnostic scanning tools into your vehicle’s on-board computer and generate and analyse a detailed report. Once we’ve established the root of the problem, our skilled auto electricians can perform:
- Battery test and replacement
- Alternators and starter motors
- Lighting upgrades
- Accessory installation
- Solar/battery system installations and repairs
- Component test and replacement
If your check engine light is staring up at you from the dashboard, contact us today!Click Here
Wheels & Tyres
Tyre manufacturers design their products with built in redundancies that allow the tyres to provide acceptable grip even as they wear. These designs are rendered useless however if your wheels are misaligned, as misaligned wheels lead to uneven tyre wear, which the manufacturers couldn’t possibly account for. Poorly balanced and aligned wheels also dramatically affect your handling.
Caves Mechanical Services provides the following tyre and wheel services:
- Wheel alignments
- Wheel balancing
- Puncture repairs
- Tyres from major brands for all makes and models
