We are excited to announce that we have teamed up with Diesel Tune NZ to be one of their official NZ dealers.
We have facilitated many tunes, however its been something we’ve outsourced, and struggled to answer questions quickly around, what are the gains? What price? and when can you do it?.
Now we will be able to provide this info on the spot. and time frames we can manage based around our own workshop loadings…. Wins all around.
We will look at combination deals also around engine detox (Carbon clean and walnut blasting) followed up with a performance tune.
Diesel Tune NZ, is a nationwide franchise giving us huge support, and although the name implies Diesel Tunes, we can do petrol’s as well, our first tune being a Mini Cooper S Turbo. See further down for pics and results, its now a little rocket!!! Customer feed back is “Im struggling to wipe the smile off my face”
Offering both Hydrogen Carbon Clean and Walnut Blasting to keep your engines in top shape.
Stage 1 Being Hydrogen Carbon clean machine.
Stage 2, Hydrogen Carbon Clean machine and Liqui-moly intake cleaner.
Stage 3 Walnut Blasting
Stage 4 = All of the above
What is it? quite literally its a machine that uses compressed air and fine crushed walnut shells to remove carbon build up. In our application, usually intake ports and the back sides of intake valves.
Why do it? Alot of modern engines by design are prone to carbon build up in the intake system, over time as the carbon build up increases the efficiency of the engine reduces, meaning less performance, fuel economy etc.
Why now for WEEU? We deal with a lot of cars that suffer from carbon build up, and a lot of our customers like to keep there cars no only going, but going like they should! We follow a lot of forums and in recent times have seen a lot of discussion on this topic. We also dont know of many local workshops that offer this service so decided now was the time. Its also a good fit with our other Detox Tools and Tuning service we now provide.
Whats involved? There is some time involved and the time taken varies from car to car. We do have to remove the intake manifold to gain access to the intake ports, this can mean on some cars, intake runner flaps also need removing. Each cylinder is done separately as the valves need to be in the closed position so as to not fill the cylinder with walnut shells, all other ports are masked off etc to avoid walnut shells going where they are not wanted.
Peace of mind motoring, is a mechanical breakdown insurance for you? Questions?? Ask John@weeu.co.nz
So, being the guy at the desk organizing the shop, the customers the repairs and quotes, I often find myself asking the question, do you have a warranty or breakdown insurance on your car..? This is often followed by “No, I purchased the car privately”, or ‘Ive had the car for years now”.
Its not common knowledge that you can go out and purchase a policy on your car from the likes of ourselves or various finance companies and car yards around NZ. Providing the car meets the criteria and is checked for any pre-exisiting faults, its just a matter of providing some very basic information and choosing the level of cover you would like.
We can put mechanical breakdown insurance in place for most European cars up to 16 years old and 250,000 kms. All policies come with a 24/7 road side assist if something were to happen while travelling this holiday season and beyond. Seeing some of the failures and the repair bills, we are huge advocates for mechanical breakdown insurance. A good way to future proof yourself against costly repairs with the added bonus of the road side assist. Obviously there are terms and conditions, however in a nut shell we can put in place cover for most European vehicles up to 16 years old and a whopping 250,000kms. Exclusions are the likes of AMG, and RS Audis etc (still an option , but much lower age and km’s restrictions). Any questions, give us a call, happy to assist.
A brief summary of whats covered, in most cases its mechanical and electrical items that are not deemed to be routine maintenance items. We have replaced everything from window regulators to engines. Depending on the level of cover, some policies have a claim limit of up to $10,000 (per claim). This is a significant sum which we have seen spent on a few occasions now on policies. The list of items covered is just too long, however if you had any specific questions feel free to give us a call, I’m sure I will be able to answer most questions on the spot.
Is there a claim excess.,? Yes there is usually $350-$450
Is there a limit on claims.,? No there is not.
What do I have to do.,? The car must be serviced every 12 months, and in most cases, Diesels are 10,000km and Petrol’s are 15,000. So annually or by km’s, whichever comes first.
Are oils and fluids covered on claims.,? On the top tier policies, yes they are, IE A water-pump
job may need fresh coolant. Also often covered are wheel alignments, freight, diagnostic scan tools if they are required to complete the job. Lower tier cover these would be additional.
