This 2014 Rolls Royce Phantom came into the shop when the owner noticed there was no sound coming from any speakers. Diagnosis verified that the amp was faulty and not outputting sound to the speakers. Replacing the amp through Rolls Royce would be very costly to our customer, so we sent the unit to a local electronics repair shop. There a transistor in the amp was replaced and internal thermal damage was repaired. No matter what vehicle you drive, the team at Motor Werke always looks for the best and most cost-effective solution!

This 2009 Mini Cooper S came to us with complaints of rough running and a loss of power when driving down the highway. Diagnostics revealed that the vehicle was badly misfiring. After ruling out that fuel and ignition were not an issue, we performed a compression and cylinder leak test. This proved to us that cylinder 3 was not holding pressure. Using a borescope we were able to determine that there was a large hole in the exhaust valve. This is usually caused by neglecting regular interval maintenance and missing oil changes. Carbon and sludge can build up on the valve, causing it to not open and close correctly, which in turn prevents the valve from dissipating heat effectively. This leads to "burning" in the valve, causing it to break apart.

This 1979 Porsche 924 was in for a complete front and rear brake overhaul. Before coming to us this vehicle sat for 5 years. Sitting for that amount of time caused the brake system to seize up. All new brake pads and rotors were installed, brake fluid done, wheel bearings re-greased, new rubber and metal brake lines, and each brake caliper was rebuilt. A caliper rebuild includes cleaning of the interior and exterior surfaces, new dust boots, and seals.

In the pictures you can see how contaminated the brake fluid had gotten on the back side of the caliper piston. This fluid should be a clean, transparent yellow colour. In this picture you can see that it is more of a rusty, goopy mess!

"I've been bringing my 1986 Mercedes T1 van to Motor Werke for 5 years now, since I first had it inspected. They are the only shop in town that I trust to look after my vehicle. Their technicians and parts team have helped me out many times, especially with hard-to-find european market only parts. For example, I brought my van in for an oil change just days before a family trip. They identified a safety issue with the brakes while it was on the lift, but were able to complete the repair in time for us to still hit the road as scheduled, saving the trip!

I recommend Motor Werke to anyone with an older, unique vehicle. Chris and his team are pros, and always great to work with."

A lack of power brought this 2008 BMW X6 35i xDrive into the shop. After another shop diagnosed the issue and recommended that both turbos be replaced, this owner wanted a second opinion. Using our factory BMW scan tool we found the hesitation was coming from a misfire originating from a faulty ignition coil. Aged spark plugs were to blame for coil failure. When spark plugs get old it causes extra stress on the system and cause ignition coils to fail under high engine load conditions. To fix the issue, we replaced all six spark plugs and ignition coils. We got this customer back on the road at a fraction of the cost of the first proposed repair bill from the previous shop!

An engine is a complicated thing. So many parts, all moving, all working together to keep you in motion. Oil is imperative to keeping everything flowing harmoniously.
As oil flows through the engine it continuously draws heat away and lubricates thousands of components that all work together to keep your car rolling down the road without issue.
