Who Are We?
A family business operating in Ingham, Far North Queensland.
What Do We Do?
We Design and Manufacture Low Coolant Alarms for petrol and diesel engines.
We provide a sales and backup service second to none.
Why Are We In This Business?
I cooked a motor in the family car due to a split heater hose.
I was out bush at the time and it caused me a lot of grief, After the rebuild I looked for a coolant
Alarm & was very disappointed with what was available on the market.
We eventually spent a lot of money and time on the project and came up with something unique.
I built prototypes for family and friends as well as my own vehicle.
These units worked so well that a friend introduced us to potential trade customers who took our
product up immediately and have been with us ever since.
Are We Any Good At It?
We have been in this business for over
9 years now.
Around 50% percent of our turnover is repeat business from the automotive
trade both here
Australia, UK and Asia.
We constantly develop and test our products to a high standard whilst keeping the cost
competitive. The repeat business speaks for itself.
Why Have I Not Heard of Enginesaver® Before?
Although we have been
successfully selling Engine Saver® to the trade for nine years we have
not advertised much. We believe word of mouth is the best form of advertising, although slow.
Last year we began a very modest advertising campaign to increase demand for our product in
the retail sector without putting our manufacturing capability under strain.
Our main goal is to keep Engine Saver® quality and reliability rating as high as possible.
Do Our Alarms Work And Are They Reliable?
The Engine Saver® is solid state, industrial quality, heavy duty, epoxy filled, and
has no moving parts. It is an extremely sensitive circuit which
will operate over a wide range of values over a huge
temperature range and yet is robust and extremely stable.
The Engine Saver® is normally unaffected by coolants coating the
sensor probe with the high resistance film which prevents electrolysis.
This is called probe filming, which causes false alarms and affects most other units on the market.
We believe that we have the best reliability record of any unit made anywhere in the world.
This is genuinely reflected in the quality of our trade customer client base.
fully intend to maintain this position in the future by constant
research, development and total commitment to the quality of our
What is the In-Line Sensor?
The In-Line sensor is an injection moulded fitting made from
an advanced thermoplastic
which is the
modern engine plastic components are made from.
It is extremely strong and heat resistant. We have tested
it to over 300 degrees C
It is supplied to
us by a major automotive aftermarket supplier as a blank which
we then tailor
to our own
It is very easy to
fit, and gives us accurate control over the positioning of the
This is our most
popular product and will fit most applications.
also have the all new short In-line sensor which is only 50mm
long and will fit almost any hose.
Radiator top header tanks used to be made from metal and holes
were drilled and probes were screwed into a soldered in
Radiator top header tanks today are mostly made from plastic and
they are fragile and very prone to cracking so it makes a lot of
sense not to go drilling holes in them.
Some top tanks now are also very
small, and the top radiator hose often
contains more coolant than the tank itself. so it makes sense to
position the sensor in the hose.
the top of the radiator is not always the highest point in the cooling
system in a modern vehicle, it is often the top radiator hose
so with an Engine SaverŪ
you are able to position the
sensor at the
highest most sensitive point.
To fit a screwed in probe usually means removing the radiator from the vehicle at a radiator works.
This is time consuming and expensive. Quite a lot of coolant is lost and has to be replaced.
The Engine Saver® probe can be fitted at home in a few minutes. Usually less than a litre of coolant is lost
with in-line sensors.
Some vehicles like the Land Rovers, Toyotas and Nissan 4wd's
already have a threaded fitting to
accomodate a screw in probe. With
a screw in probe, absolutely no coolant is lost.
sensors do not leak at all.
We provide simple clear fitting instructions and as long as these are followed no leakage will occur.
