Faults, failures and simple fixes
A half day, hands-on, workshop teaching you the skills to keep your car reliable, how to recognise the early symptoms of faults and failures and simple roadside repairs to get you home.
Rallying is the ultimate test of a car’s reliability and we have been throwing rally cars around since the 1970s. That experience gave us the confidence to hire out our cars and we launched www.vintageandclassiccarhire.com.au in 2008. Since then, dozens of different makes and models have clocked up close to a million kilometres on hire. There is not a fault or failure that we have not had to address to keep them reliable.
Two of our cars were moved from Sydney to Adelaide a year ago. ‘Bertie’ a 1964 MGB with 3 bearing crank and crash gearbox had done over 100,000 kms on hire in Sydney. ‘Rocky’, a 1967 Mustang GT350 Convertible automatic had done over 130,000 kms. To get them down there we had clients simply jump in them and drive. They never missed a beat and are still truckin’ away! Demonstrating the first Rule of Reliability – ‘Drive It. Don’t Hide It”.
Over 3 hours, you will learn:
- The other golden Rules for Reliability.
- How to identify the early symptoms of failure.
- The main causes of roadside breakdowns.
- What tools and spares you need in your car for roadside repair.
- Simple, ‘Get you home’ fixes for the most common breakdowns.
