  • Good Advice with a Smile

    Whilst servicing my 2015 NX I noticed the the small plastic reducer on the crankcase to Provent catch hose can had failed, the hose being a 3/4 at the crancase end and then a 1" at the catchcan made replacement difficult, as a result spent the most of the day searching for a replacement hose & reducer...

    After going to every auto store and most of the other repair shops in Mt Gambier I tried the guys at Autocare Mt Gambier (, from the first guy who actually came out to the car and had a look & the guys he referred me to in the workshop nothing was too much of an effort, considering it wasn't a booked/paid job.

    After 5 min the guy in the workshop had the lost hose end found and directed me to a local Hydraulic repair (GWB Hydraulics shop for the new brass joiner.... all in all what was looking to be a 80-90 dollar new hose ended up costing $30 which was a meter of new hose and a brass joiner & clamps.

    When it comes to getting the manifold cleaned and any tunes done it will be at

    All the gear and some idea.....

    Gotta love and appreciate such places where no job is too small for them, and helping out a customer is important.

    I remember a good experience at ARB Nundah, where i went looking for a unique width T Bolt to fit the roof rails of my car, so i could mount my awning to it. The guy inside came with me, looked at the width of the channel, measured it and then shaved down a T Bolt they had so it would fit the channel. He did this for 4 such T Bolts. Cost in total? $15. For a store that sells goods easily in the thousands, it was mind blowing to see them take the effort for something that is essentially small change!
