Engine and Drivetrain
The engine and drive train are the powerhouse of your vehicle from Mackay Toyota. These parts generate power and deliver it to you on the road. There are numerous parts that make up the drivetrain of your car including the battery, the clutch, the drive belt, the muffler and spark plug.
Your car's battery is what supplies energy to the starter motor, ignition system and lights. The spark plug ignites the fuel and air mixture, which propels the engine's cylinders to drive the car. The engine stays turning with the assistance of a drive belt that carries all the other parts that are auxiliary to your engine's functioning.
The role of the clutch is to effortlessly transfer the power from the engine to propel the vehicle.
Finally the muffler is the component in your exhaust system that is responsible for correctly 'breathing out' emissions, so that your engine delivers maximum performance and efficiency. So with all of these parts working together, it is imperative that you speak with the team from Mackay Toyota for Toyota Genuine Parts!
Brakes, Suspension & Steering
The performance of your car brakes; suspension; and steering have tremendous effect on how your car handles on the road. Being able to stop and turn with precision are crucial to your safety while driving.
At the centre of a car's stopping power are the actual brake pads, which grip the brake disc rotor to slow down your car. The split boot kit allows you to repair the boots, which are crucial to your car's CV joints on the front axles of your car.
Shock absorbers work with the car's suspension to absorb the effects of bumps and holes in the road. Tyres are one of the parts that require the most regular checking. Mackay Toyota offer all the big brands of tyres you could want.

Windscreen wipers are very important for safe driving, especially at night. They are designed to effectively remove moisture and dirt from the front and rear windscreen, providing a clear view for the driver.
However, the soft rubber inserts are vulnerable to wear and tear from the elements and can be literally worn out with use. Contaminants and adverse conditions on the road can accelerate rubber deterioration, often resulting in chattering and streaking across the windscreen. Lack of use, due to storage or driving in dry climates can leave the rubber on the windscreen wipers cracked and brittle. The same applies to headlamp wipers too, and all rubber inserts should be checked regularly and changed when necessary.
Signs you may need to replace your windscreen wipers:
- Chattering or streaking across the windscreen
- Cracks or brittleness on the wiper
- Smearing on the windscreen after use
