Keeping on top of your vehicle's servicing requirements can help to provide a smoother driving experience, and minimise the risk of damage or other issues.

We use quality fluids and replacement parts to ensure a smooth-running vehicle. 

Whether you know exactly what type of service your car needs, or you've bought a car with an unknown service record, not to worry, we'll be happy to help.

Keeping cool in the summer is a must for many people on the road. If your air conditioning leaves much to be desired, speak to First Choice Motor Engineers. Our experienced team is fully equipped to take a look at most types of automotive air conditioning system, and have it pumping out crisp, cold air once again.


Modern cars are packed full of electrical components, so it can be a challenge for you to work out what has gone wrong. Our team can take a look at your vehicle, identify the electrical fault, and provide a cost-effective repair solution. 

We can also take a look at your car's battery. If it keeps going flat, is very old, or isn't giving you the power your car needs to run smoothly and reliably, our team can help. We can inspect batteries, and if needed, change them for a perfect replacement.

A smooth-running motor can make all the difference to your driving experience. We can take a look at a wide range of issues, including but not limited to:

  • Issues with starting and stalling

  • Poor power delivery

  • Check engine lights

  • Engines in 'limp mode'

  • Unusual noises and feelings when driving

  • Overheating

  • Leaks

We also offer fuel injector testing. Your injectors help to ensure the engine gets the right amount of fuel, and if they are blocked, or letting too much fuel in, it can impact fuel economy, performance, and the reliability of your engine.
