Fan clutch

Fan clutches reduce the drain of engine power and improve the efficiency of a vehicle’s cooling system. Fan clutches are fluid coupling devices which provide air flow through the radiator by using the water pump shaft to power a fan blade. Fan clutch should be checked for possible replacement when a new water pump is installed or when any of the following problems exist:

  • Engine Overheating
  • Silicon leaking from clutch unit
  • Fan spins with little or no resistance (free wheels)
  • Greasy build up at thermal spring or where shaft exits rear housing
  • Fan clutch vibrates on shaft or will not turn
  • Squealing noises from bearing
Disc Pad Wear Sensors

Disc Pad Wear Sensors

Disc pad wear sensors are an advanced safety feature on many late model vehicles. They are electronic devices used to indicate how much material is left before disc pad replacement is required. Disc brake pad wear sensors are designed to “fail” as brake pads wear. They should be changed whenever the pads are replaced or when the vehicle’s warning light indicates.

Protex high quality disc pad wear sensors are very competitively priced and a key feature is they fit not only Protex disc pads, but other brands of pads as well.

Like all Protex products, they are sourced from world leading suppliers which are quality accredited and built to Original Equipment standards. There are over 130 part numbers available to suit most of the vehicles requiring disc pad wear sensors in the Australian market today.

Maintaining maximum engine performance and temperature is extremely important role and a quality Coolant is a must. The life of an engine, particularly high performance diesel engines, can be shortened or suffer damage, by either not using the right coolant or maintaining the level in the cooling system to with specification.


This is a premium quality, organic, long life anti-boil / anti freeze concentrate. Suitable for both automotive and heavy duty diesel engines. This coolant protects all metals found in cooling systems and gives excellent protection against cavitations erosion and significantly increases the operation life of water pumps.

It exceeds corrosion performance levels required to meet Australian standard AS/NZS 2108.1-1997. Containing 86% monoethylene glycol and a double inhibitor package ensuring ultimate corrosion protection and extended life service. It contains no silicates, borates, phosphates, nitrites, nitrates or amines and will not have adverse effects on hoses or gaskets.


Protex Type A coolant is a fully formulated ethylene glycol based anti-boil / anti-freeze concentrate. Suitable for most automotive vehicles it is manufactured to meet or exceed vehicle manufacturer, national and international standards.
