🛎️ Top reasons oil and filter changes are so important to a car’s well-being.

✅ Maintains engine lubrication.
Imagine all the moving parts, pistons, valves, and other engine parts moving at high rates of speed under the hood of a car. These components create heat and will wear down the engine dramatically without proper oil lubrication. Make sure to refer to the owner’s manual to see what specific weight and grade of oil the vehicle requires and ensure it is kept at the recommended fill volume.

✅ Cools engine components.
Moving parts that lack proper lubrication create friction, which in turn creates heat. Maintaining clean and sufficient amounts of oil is the perfect solution to prevent too much friction and over-heating of the engine.

✅ Removes engine wear particles and sludge.
Dirt particles are deadly to engines. Over time, dirt can cause corrosion and decrease the life of an engine. Also as time goes on, oil breaks down and turns to “sludge.” The name of the game is to keep the engine clean. Routine oil and filter changes help remove particles and sludge and keep engines at peak condition.
Improves gas mileage.

✅ Poor engine lubrication can lead to increased fuel consumption, so make sure there is enough clean oil in the engine. With routine changes and the right kind of oil, gas mileage can be improved over time by 1-2%. That doesn’t sound like much of an improvement, but for the average car, it leads to savings of an entire gallon of gas for a year!

✅ Promotes vehicle longevity.
Plain and simple, routine maintenance makes your vehicle last longer. Buildup from dirty oil robs a vehicle’s fuel economy and power and makes internal components work harder. An engine that works too hard will end up having more problems down the road as well as a shorter life span.

❤Performing oil changes personally can be a hassle, but it is a necessary task that must be done.

Come and see how affordable and convenient routine maintenance and repairs at Mayne Automotive can be!

😅 Never Ignore These 7 Warning Signs of Brake Problems

Brake servicing is one of those routine maintenance chores you just cannot ignore. Brake parts have a life span and they do need to be regularly serviced and sometimes replaced to work properly.

Fortunately, your car or truck usually gives you some clear signals that your brakes are due. Sometimes they’re harmless noises that don’t require repairs or have simple fixes. Other times not.

Your brakes are one of the most important safety components in your vehicle. So if you notice any of the following common warning signs of brake issues, it’s time to get a professional to check your car, truck or SUV pronto. You’ll drive safer and head off more expensive damage.

✅ 1. Brake Light On
When one of the red or yellow brake indicators on your dashboard lights up it may mean you’re just due for an inspection. It could also be your vehicle’s smart electronics alerting you to a problem. An engaged parking brake could also cause the light to go on. Be sure it’s fully released to confirm that’s not the issue.

✅ 2. Squealing, Squeaking or Grinding Noises
Hearing a metallic squeal while you’re in motion? If you start hearing a high-pitched noise that stops when you apply the brakes that’s likely the sound of the brake pad wear indicators.

They’re made of steel so they make this sound when they start contacting the rotor.

They’re letting you know that your pads are worn out and need to be replaced before you get rotor damage, which can be an expensive fix.

✅ 3. Wobbling, Vibration or Scraping When Braking
Shaking in the steering wheel or vibration when you apply the brakes may be the result of an uneven rotor.
Brake rotors are big discs that sit inside the wheels. When you hit the brake pedal, the brake pads hug the rotors, slowing them and your vehicle. You want rotors to be smooth and completely even in thickness.

✅ 4. Leaking Fluid
If you’re experiencing a soft brake pedal, have a service technician look for fluid leaking from the master cylinder or elsewhere in the brake system.
The master cylinder is the unit that creates the power for your brakes. It has a reservoir like the one for your wiper fluid that contains brake fluid. When you apply the brakes, this fluid is pushed through thin piping, creating hydraulic pressure. If the fluid is leaking from this system, there may not be enough power to force the brake pads to clamp hard to the rotors.

✅ 5. Car Pulling to One Side When Braking
This could be caused by a brake hose gone bad or a caliper problem. One brake caliper may be applying more or all the pressure during braking, resulting in unbalanced stopping.

✅ 6. Burning Smell While Driving
A sharp, chemical odour after repeated hard braking on steep roads is a sign of overheated brakes or clutch. Pullover immediately in a safe place, check your parking brake to make sure it’s fully released and allow the brakes to cool. If you don’t, you risk heating up the brake fluid to boiling, which can cause brake failure.

If there’s any smoke coming from a wheel, it may be a stuck brake caliper and possibly unsafe to continue driving on without repairs.

✅ 7. Bouncing Up and Down When You Stop Short
If your vehicle rocks or bounces with sharp braking, it’s probably not a brake problem at all. Your shock absorbers may need to be replaced.

Not every brake noise or symptom is going to cost you. It could be a harmless squeak from certain types of material in brake pads. There may be dust or moisture somewhere in the braking system that isn’t causing damage. You may just need to add new brake fluid.

But you need to be sure.

TESTIMONIALS

Thanks again to the Mayne Automotive team, who again provided excellent service. The guys called with an update on what needed to be done and provided a quote for the work. The car was ready early, and I appreciated the full car wash and vacuum! It is so handy having the Mayne's team available on a Sunday, and they always go out of their way to fit you in promptly and get the job done!

Debbie Bint

My beloved mini showed up an unusual error right before Xmas - I had to juggle barges and friends to get her to Onehunga and they persevered with the diagnostics til it was sorted and I was able to bring her home - my timeframes were tight, they were always pleasant and helpful and I was so grateful - highly recommended 🙂

Megan Yates

Doreen and the team went above and beyond in working with VTNZ to get our vehicles warranted and brought up to NZ standards. Their work was fast and efficient and we were kept up to date with each major piece of work. They worked hard to fit with our own deadlines and we can't speak highly enough of them. Very supportive and a great team.

Annabel Taylor

What a fantastic job these guys did. Open on weekends and early. I didn't quite pass my WoF on my new vehicle they got me in the same day did all the work + some more I asked for. Then redid my WoF for me before I came so it saved me a trip to do that myself. Their price quoted was right on the money. Can't recommend then enough!

Doug Johnson

First-time customer but highly impressed especially with the customer support provided by Brad. He took the ownership of the job, completed the job and handed over the vehicle to me. Fast and excellent service provided including other comforts during my stay. The technical staff looks confident, pleasant & did their job with a sense of responsibility. Charge for the job is reasonable.

As a first time customer, I`m fully satisfied and recommend to anyone who seeks a good facility for mechanical repairs and WOF certification. Thank you very much.!

Dayalal Dearson

First time user ... will be back! Great service. On the way to work my car was making strange noises. I stopped off as just around the corner from work. They were so helpful and caring. Fixed the car during the day and even washed and vacuumed for me. Thank you.

Natasha Loulanting

I have used Mayne Automotive for many years and have found them excellent to deal with. Friendly staff and great communication. Being open all weekend is a great plus and also courtesy cars available when needed.

Helen Carruthers

Absolutely fantastic mechanic! Brad provided wonderful customer service & explained what was needed and why in an informative but non-patronising way. Will definitely come here again. Thank you!

Fiona Witt

Love Mayne Automotive! I love that everything is explained and I am given autonomy over what gets done and when. The owners are fully involved with the business and add a personal touch to everything! I highly recommend this business! Honest, thorough, well priced.

Di Raynes

I have to say these guys are the best mechanics I've found in Auckland. They are fast and good value. We use them for our WOF and they do all the repairs needed to pass.
