Engine valves replacement and engine valves repair are among common issues experienced by vehicle owners.

Our mechanics arrive on site with everything they need to undertake a full vehicle inspection as well as carry out valves replacement and valves repair.
Engine valves form an important part of your vehicle’s engine and are responsible for controlling the flow of fuel into the engine’s combustion chamber as well as controlling the flow of exhaust from the engine. If your engine is experiencing valve problems then you are likely to develop damaged valves which then cause cracks, pits and grooves or worsen existing one. This will affect things like the fuel efficiency of your engine as well as excess oil consumption. If valves replacement or a valves service is not conducted in time then you may find that the problem grows, causing cylinder head problems like a blown head gasket or a damaged cylinder head which will keep your car off the road until fixed.
Your mobile mechanic is fully equipped with a range of quality parts to ensure that once the problem is identified, they are able to quote you for the work required to get your car back to peak performance and start work straight away. Our work comes with a standard 12 month/20 000km warranty and you can contact our customer service team for details.
When your mechanic arrives to determine whether valves replacement or a valves service is required, they will likely inspect for cracks and corrosion. To do this may involve removing the cylinder head as well as removing valve springs. They will then be able to see signs of wear and things like a bent valve, a burnt valve as well as check whether there is oil leaking, whether the coolant tanks are whole. The cooling system, including the radiator, thermostat and hoses, will also be inspected to ensure that any valve failure or bad valves have not impacted other parts and processes like the water pump, manifolds or timing belt. They may also need to replace spark plugs and inspect exhaust gases as part of your valves service. Once the valves replacement has been completed, the mechanic will do a pressure test to ensure everything is in working order.
Signs that your valves may need to be replaced include:
Failure to have your valves inspected may lead to other problems with your vehicle over the longer term. Not only will fuel efficiency decrease, making it more expensive to run your car daily, you may also experience other mechanical failures which may lead to problems with the engine and ultimately to a vehicle that can no longer be driven until it has been repaired. Overheating issues are amongst the most common problems for vehicles which require valves replacement. If your car has overheated and your stuck by the side of the road, Lube Mobile will come to your location if its safely parked away from danger and can be inspected and repaired legally within the area you are stopped.
The valve stem on your car can cause your tyres to release air pressure if it is faulty and needs to be replaced. Our mobile mechanics are able to attend to your location anywhere in Australia to carry out valve replacement on your tyres.
If the tyre has not already been removed from the vehicle then it will need to be removed before the tyre valve can be replaced.
In order to replace the valve on a fully mounted tyre, you will need some specialist tools and equipment. The car will need to be jacked up and the wheel removed. The air in the tyre will need to be removed with a specialist valve change tool which will also be used to remove the valve once the tyre is deflated. Once the faulty valve stem has been removed then a new valve can be inserted. A valve stem replacement kit comes with an insertion tube that guides the new valve into place.
Before the new valve stem has been inserted, it will need to be covered in automotive lubricant. This lubricant will create the tyre sealant required to keep the valve strongly in place. Once the new valve stem has been inserted successfully then the tyre can be reinflated, and the wheel replaced. Your car is now ready to hit the road again.
Whether your valves replacement or valves service is required for your wheels and tyres or whether it’s the engine valves which need to be replaced, serviced, cleaned or repaired, your Lube Mobile mobile mechanic has everything they need to complete the job on the spot.
