Air Conditioning Smells
Nasty Smell Coming From Your Air Conditioner?
Do you have that horrible smell coming from your air conditioning vents? It happens when moisture builds up and allows mould and bacteria to grow.
What causes the problem? Modern air conditioning systems trap more moisture than in the past. To maintain cabin temperatures, these efficient systems require a larger percentage of air to be recirculated. These two factors create an ideal habitat for mould, mildew, bacteria and other micro-organisms to grow. Then every time the fan is turned on, harmful spores are blown into the air drivers and passengers breathe and can colonize though out the car.
There is a fast and effective solution to this however, we can administer aMiST service and restore your vehicle’s in-car air quality.
The UView MiST™ System kills mould on contact and prevents new mould growth throughout the vehicle’s HVAC system and passenger cabin surfaces restoring in-car air quality.
This service can be run on any vehicle. The nano droplets eliminate the germs, bacteria and mildew leaving the vehicle smelling fresh and sanitised promoting a healthier driving experience for you and your family.
You can learn more about the MiST treatment in this video or simply call us today.
Does Clunking Go With Your Territory?
It is fair to say that the Ford Territory and Falcon are two of the most popular vehicles on Australian roads. Both of these models are prone to high rates of wear in some rear suspension components, such as the rear differential bushing. This is particularly apparent on vehicles that have travelled high kilometres, have high horsepower or vehicles towing loads regularly.
A tell-tale sign that this bushing is no longer performing as intended is hearing a clunking noise or feeling a jolt under acceleration or when shifting gears from drive to reverse. The primary function of the rear differential bushing is to provide smooth and quiet transfer of power from the engine to the rear wheels of your vehicle under acceleration.
Should this issue go unresolved it may result in excessive wear on surrounding drive train and suspension components so it is wise and economical to act swiftly should you be experiencing any of these symptoms.
Your local Repco Authorised Service Centre is experienced in diagnosing and fixing this problem. We can replace your worn rubber differential bushing with a highly durable Nolathane differential bushing specifically designed and manufactured to address this problem and return your vehicle back to its optimum performance.
So, if “clunking” goes with your Territory or Falcon, call us today.

Dangers Of Worn
Worn Shock Absorbers - Don't Take The Risk.
Don't underestimate the importance of your shock absorbers - many people don't even realise they're intended to keep your tyres safely in contact with the road!
What Are Shock Absorbers?
Your steering, handling, stability,, ride comfort and brakes all rely on your shock absorbers in order to work properly. Shocks and struts are important workings of the suspension system. Replacing worn or inadequate shocks and struts and thoroughly inspecting the entire suspension system will help to maintain good vehicle safety and control.
How Do I Know If My Shocks Are Worn?
If your shocks display worrying symptoms you shouldn't delay - came and see the team at Taylor's Mechanical Service in Roma for a road test by our qualified technicians. There are some very distinctive clues of excessive shock absorber wear and tear you might notice:
Worn shock absorbers can add as much as 20% to your stopping distance. That's the sort of fault that can be fatal and requires immediate attention.
Nose-diving & Swerving
If the bonnet of your car dips when you brake or slow down, or your vehicle swerves under brakes, you may have a shock absorber problem.
Uncomfortable steering wheel vibration could be shock absorbers.
If your car veers in side winds, particularly when the wind isn't so strong, you could have shock absorber problems.
Shake, Rattle & Roll
Notice that your car 'rock and rolls' over bumps, railway tracks or uneven surfaces? Not hugging the bends? Time to visit Taylor's Mechanical Service for a check up!
Uneven Tyre Wear
If your tyres are wearing unevenly, particularly if there are bald patches, odds are it's your shock absorbers.

Clean Cabin Air Filters
Clean Car - Healthy Family!
Have a Question? Drop us a line!
Did you know that research published in the respected Environmental Health Perspectives Journal has shown that the air inside your car can contain over 10 times more pollutants than the air outside, if you don't have an effective cabin air filter installed.
These pollutants can cause fatigue, nausea, headaches and trigger more significant health difficulties for people with asthma or respiratory issues.
"Cabin air filters are designed to filter out contaminants while absorbing noxious odours and harmful gases like exhaust and ozone," explained Ryco Filters General Manager of Sales & Marketing, Ross Lamb.
Some families might feel like "mum and dad's taxi service" is always working and a recent study into driving habits confirmed that parents with children aged 6-15 drive approximately 10% more than drivers without kids.
Cabin air filters become clogged over time and their effectiveness at protecting your health diminishes, and the longer you spend in a vehicle with a Cabin Air Filter that needs replacing, the more you are at risk of health complications. Taylor`s Mechanical Service recommends replacing your cabin air filter every 12 months or 15,000km.
The Ryco MicroShield Cabin Air Filter is the Ultimate in protection against dust, dirt and pollen.
