Charlie was both friendly and professional. I was able to grab a coffee and bite up the road as he only took 40minutes to service the car. He was great at explaining the issue with the car, even used props. I'll be going back to him in the future!

Live locally to Charlie and even if I lived 2 hours away I'd still drive all that way for him to service my car. Best guy, super helpful and explains things in detail. Couldn't recommend him enough!

I got a service from Charlie at my home address and it was a smooth and professional operation.He was on time, polite, knowledgeable, fair in pricing and efficient.He also didn’t speak down to me regarding my vehicle which does irritate me with some mechanics.I was so happy with the service he provided I’d use him for any future work he’s set up to do and I’d 100% recommend him to anyone.

Charlie made what is normally an ordeal for me (sorting out how to get to and from a mechanic, only to be sold a bunch of unnecessary extras) an absolute breeze. Honest, friendly and refreshingly free of BS, Charlie got to it while I sat in a cafe munching on the smashed avo toast I could afford from not going to a big garage franchise.You've got my continued business, mate, and that of the friends and family who I'll be directing your way!

Flexible, reliable and efficient car service from Charlie at CB Auto Service. Was even able to reschedule me dropping the car to him at his home workshop short notice. Would recommend to friends and use his mechanical servicing again. Thanks

Charlie was good enough to make time to service my car before I drove down south. He was efficient and thorough and reasonably priced. Absolutely recommend CB Auto Service.

Hi! Charlie came out to us to attend to an annoying issue with our son's car leaking oil. The problem is still being sorted, but Charlie has been great, offering good old fashioned service that is so hard to come by these days. He is reliable, very thorough, and is keeping us well informed with where he is at with regards to accessing parts etc. We highly recommend his very convenient service.

If I lived in Perth, Charlie would definitely be my mechanic!. I arrived in Perth with less than 24 hours until I traded in my vehicle and its showing an orange engine code. I felt sick... Even though I never got to meet Charlie, I will be forever grateful for his text messages with very valuable advice. Charlie, I really hope I get to hand over some money to you one day because you are an absolute gem!! When your a tradesman your time is so valuable and you gave me yours for free..... You deserve all the money and customers in the world. I wish there were more people in the world like you. Thank you so much. I love that you love running your own business! You are exactly where you need to be 🙂

Charlie is a great guy he performed a logbook service on my car, he arrived on time, his work is very clean and meticulous attention to detail. His pricing is comparable to what I’ve been paying at garages. He is happy to show and explain any genuine issues with the car, and can even diagnose and reset your cars computer, something other garages don’t often do. No more missing work or getting a taxi or friend to pick you up, most services are complete in under two hours so you don’t loose your car for the whole day.

Charlie was very thorough with checking all possible causes to try and find the issue with my Hyundai Elantra. He was great at explaining in layman’s terms what he was doing and what could be the problem. Charlie was very honest when he said he was only 80% sure it was the fuel pump and agreed when I said I’d get a Hyundai Dealer service department to look at it too. Charlie is excellent with communication, including phone calls and answering texts, and also punctual - coming to look at my car at the time he said he would. He’s a trustworthy guy and I’m getting a quote to replace the fuel pump 🙂

Charlie is an awesome mechanic. Super quick to diagnose the intermittent fault I’ve been having with my car for over 2 years. He was happy to share his wealth of knowledge to help me understand the problem too. I highly recommend him.

Charlie was honest, friendly and reliable, arriving exactly at our agreed time. He completed the alternator exchange quickly and efficiently and the cost was exactly what he had quoted. Great service and I would have no hesitation in recommending Charlie at all. Thanks again Charlie for the great service.

What are "car tune-ups"?

A tune-up is a specific type of service focused on improving the efficiency and performance of the car's engine.

Every engine burns fuel, so a tune-up is focused on getting more bang for your buck as well as improving the reliability of your car

An engine consumes fuel and air as we do as humans by eating and breathing, so in order to keep your engine healthy, we need to ensure that the supply of fuel and air is clean.

Even with advances in technology, which means cars are largely computer-controlled, periodically the components used in the burning of fuel will wear out and need to be replaced. This is what is referred to as a tune-up.

What is included in a car tune-up service?

What does a car tune-up consist of? First of all, it's important to understand that it varies depending on the engine and fuel being burned.

Petrol and diesel engines work on the same principle of burning fuel, but how they burn it is very different, meaning that different parts are used in the delivery and combustion of fuel.

Generally speaking, the following items are included in a tune-up:

Spark Plug Replacement: These components are used to ignite the fuel in a petrol engine and work in a very hostile environment. As such, over time, they will wear out and become less effective at igniting fuel.

Air Filter Replacement: Both diesel and petrol engines require a clean and plentiful supply of air to burn fuel effectively. An air filter removes harmful particles of dirt, dust, and other contaminants to prevent engine damage. For every liter of fuel burned, multiple thousands of liters of air pass through the air filter and into your engine. Over time, your air filter will clog up, restricting the flow of air to the engine.

Fuel Filter Replacement: The purpose of the fuel filter is to remove any microscopic particles of dirt and contamination from the fuel in your tank before it reaches the engine. This applies to both petrol and diesel engines, and the principle is the same. We take it for granted that the fuel we pump into our cars is clean, but in reality, it‘s rarely perfectly clean. Over time, your fuel filter will clog up with these particles and restrict the flow of fuel to your engine, forcing your fuel pump to work harder and overall reducing the efficiency of your engine.

What are the signs that your car needs a tune-up?

Increased Fuel Consumption: You will notice that you are not getting the same distance on each tank of fuel

Poor Engine Performance: You may notice that your engine isn’t as responsive as it was before, requiring you to put your foot down harder than usual when accelerating or taking longer than normal to reach the same speed

Difficulty Starting & Rough Running: In more severe cases, you may find that your car is difficult to start or won’t start at all. You may also experience that the engine isn’t running as smoothly as it was before, or stalls intermittently.

Reliability Issues: Your engine overall will not be functioning as reliably as it was before.

Why are tune-ups important?

Tune-ups are important to keep your car safe and reliable. We tend to take our cars for granted and assume that everything will start and work fine each time we set off on a journey. Good engine performance is a safety factor in the same way as good braking performance.

In circumstances where you may call on your car for large power delivery and rapid acceleration, such as when overtaking or avoiding a dangerous situation, if your engine isn’t working correctly, that lack of performance may be the difference between your personal safety and an accident. In less dramatic situations, if your car is running rough again and stalls on you as you’re turning across traffic during normal driving this can present a real safety hazard.

Tune-ups are important, just like every other type of routine maintenance for your car.

What happens if you never get a tune-up?

Filters and other parts will deteriorate over time, which lowers the engine's performance, reliability, and fuel efficiency.

How often should you get a tune-up?

There is no set standard for getting a tune-up as it largely depends on the type of vehicle, the amount of driving you do, and the type of driving (i.e., dusty roads, which will clog up air filters faster). Generally speaking, as a rough rule of thumb, taking an average frequency you’ll likely expect to do a tune-up every couple of years.

How much does a tune-up cost?

Generally speaking, the cost of a car tune-up depends on the type of engine and the parts that are required to be replaced during the tune-up. Anyone offering a generic price will be basing that price on a number of assumptions that are likely to be largely incorrect.

There is no set standard price as it will vary depending on the type of vehicle, the parts, and labour involved. At CB Auto Service, we take the time to carefully quote each tune-up individually so you have an accurate idea of what a tune-up will cost for your vehicle.
