ADR modifications:

Our highly skilled technicians are fully certified and qualified to make modifications and alterations to vehicles in full compliance with the ADR (Australian Design Rules). We can also check existing modifications for compliance and certify them if correctly completed. If you are looking to have modifications to your vehicle or installations of after market components not fitted during manufacture or want modifcations already applied to your vehicle checked or certified Sunshine Steering can do it all.

Automatic transmission flushing:

A standard transmission system holds approx. 9 litres of oil. A simple oil drain only removes about 3 litres meaning roughly a third of the oil is being changed. As oil is a liquid it goes without saying that you can't choose which third is being changed and replace only old oil next time. Sunshine Steering have the skills and specialist equipment to completely remove all of the old oil and completely flush the automatic transmission system, including the automatic cooler and the automatic transmission itself.

Diagnostics scanning:

Engine light on dashboard staying lit? Your best bet is a diagnostics test. Sunshine Steering can scan your car computer to determine the problem without having to pull the vehicle to pieces, a process that can be prohibitively expensive. We have two in-house machines able to communicate directly with your car's computer and quickly establish the area of your engine most likely causing the problem.

We can provide a full diagnostic scan for a fraction of the cost involved in stripping an engine down and hunting for the problem and absolutely no guesswork is involved.

Suspension problems:

Banging, clanging, knocking or rattling sounds while driving are not normal and unless you have something loose in and rattling around the boot of your car or the tray of your ute, you should probably get a good mechanic to check it out The problem could be coming from a number of places such as the steering system or from poor wheel alignment.

It could also be an issue with your suspension or shock absorbers which along with brakes, enable you to stop safely and efficiently. Whichever it is, you can rest assured that Sunshine Steering have the experience and knowledge to quickly and efficiently diagnose and solve the problem.
