Filter Replacements

When you bring your car into our workshop, our team will change the various filters on your car; the engine oil filter, air filter, and fuel filter. The oil filter is something that we would routinely change on a minor service, while the latter two are changed with the oil filter on a major service.

Car Engine and Transmission

The professional technicians in our team will diagnose any issues with your car’s engine and transmission, and will quote to repair the engine accordingly.


All work that is done by us on your crankshaft or camshaft makes use of quality components that are in line with various manufacturers’ standards and industry best practices.

Fuel Injection Repair and Service

Our workshop caters for fuel injection repairs and services for both petrol and diesel cars. Any work done comes with a guarantee as mentioned above and is done with top-quality parts and is carefully scrutinised and tested afterwards to ensure that everything has been done according to the manufacturer’s specifications.

Fuel Pump

Before work on your car’s fuel pump can commence, our team will establish the nature of what is wrong and then provide you with honest advice and a quote with competitive pricing. Our team has experience working on various makes and models of cars, for instance bakkies, SUVs, and minibuses.

Fuel System Repair and Maintenance

Pace Auto Services’ professional team of technicians will carefully inspect your car’s fuel system for any underlying issues. From that, we will be able to provide you with an accurate quote for the work that needs to be done, whether it be routine maintenance or a more thorough repair.

Driveline and Differential Repair

We can assist with driveline repairs to front-wheel drive, rear-wheel drive, and four-wheel drive cars, SUVs, and bakkies. We are also able to assist with various services related to your car’s differential, including gasket replacement, pinion seals and side seals, and more.

New Air Filter

As mentioned above, our team will assist in replacing your car’s air filter. Although this is normally something reserved for your car’s major service intervals, it is something that we can do for you.

New Spark Plugs (Non-Platinum), Points, and Condensers

This is usually done whenever you bring your petrol-powered car, bakkie, SUV, or minibus in for a major service at the Pace Auto Services workshop, but can be done at your request. If there are any issues with the ignition system, such as the points or the condensers, our professional team will replace the faulty parts with top-quality parts.

Spark Plug and Glow Plug

The Pace Auto Services technicians will assist you in replacing the spark plugs in your petrol vehicle or the glow plugs in your diesel vehicle. We work on many makes and models of cars that also include bakkies, SUVs, and minibuses. Do not hesitate to contact us today if you are experiencing issues with your spark plugs or glow plugs.

Starter Motor Repair and Replacement

It is important to note that it is often easy to confuse a faulty starter motor with a flat battery because the sound often is very similar. Our professional technicians will diagnose the issue to determine if it indeed the starter motor and not the battery and will provide you with the appropriate quote.

Differential Diagnosis

Out team will examine your vehicle’s differential for any indications of wear or failure, as well as doing a check on aspects such as handling. Once we have ascertained the nature of the issue, we will provide honest feedback and a reasonable quote.

Transmission Fluid Flush and Service

We will do an inspection of your car’s transmission fluid to identify any contaminates or impurities and will flush the fluid and replace it with new transmission fluid.

Transmission Replacement, Repair, and Service

The professional team in our workshop will conduct a thorough inspection of your car’s transmission to detect issues such as slipping gears and will either replace, repair, or service depending on the nature of the issue.

Water Pump Repair and Replacement

Rather than risk your engine overheating and suffering damage, bring your car in and one of our technicians will test your car’s water pump to see if it can be repaired or if it needs to be replaced. We service and repair all makes of cars, SUVs, bakkies, minibuses, and more. Contact us today for assistance.

Engine Care Tips

A properly functioning engine is an absolute must. Your car’s engine is the heart of your vehicle but can also be one of the costliest items to repair or replace if something goes wrong. Following these tips will not only lead to a longer lasting engine but will mean more performance and a higher value when you trade-in or sell your car.

Regularly Change Oil

Ensure that the many components in your car’s engine are properly lubricated with regular oil changes. This reduces wear and tear on your engine. We will change your engine oil and oil filter at your next minor or major service, as well as on request. Even if your car is not due for a service, it is highly recommended to still change your engine oil and oil filter at least once a year.

Look for Leaks

Some of the main fluids that leak from your vehicle are engine oil, brake fluid, and coolant. If you see a leak, look under the car to see if there is any damage to the pipes or sump that carry these fluids. Do not hesitate to bring your car to a professional to repair the cause of the leaks, since leaving such issues for too long can result in even more serious damage.

Check Your Belts

Be sure to regularly check your car’s V-belts belts for any signs of damage. If the belt was to break while you are driving, it can cause a lot of damage to your engine. If you hear a squealing sound from your belts, that is a certain sign that they need to be adjusted or replaced. Bring your car into one of our professional technicians to inspect and fix the damage.

Replace the Fuel Filter

Another simple yet effective way to keep your car’s engine in good condition and to avoid performance issues is to replace the fuel filter. Although how often you need to change the fuel filter depends on your specific manufacturer’s recommendations and how often you drive the car, you would normally change the fuel filter every 40,000KM.
