Great service & advice
"Great advice, honest, keeping you updated regularly and always finished when promised"
"Very efficient and great value for money."
"Good price and happy to explain what they had done."
Great customer service
"I put my car into John Mcinnes for an MOT. Unfortunately an issue with my bonnet lock reared it’s head and the MOT couldn’t be completed. After attempting to get in myself, I returned it to the garage where they got in and carried out the MOT, without charging for the extra time spent trying to get around this particular issue. I was kept well informed of the situation and the staff were more than helpful. Would highly recommend."

Coolant is a specially-formulated chemical liquid, commonly known as antifreeze, that circulates through a car’s engine. It removes excess heat from a car’s engine by passing it through the car’s radiator. Furthermore, the solution contains inhibitors that protect the metal, plastic and rubber in the cooling system from corrosion. And, as the name antifreeze suggests, it also doesn’t freeze up in bitterly cold conditions, so it plays an important role in a car all year long.
Coolant levels should be checked frequently, at least every 3-6 months. Low coolant can cause overheating, which would have serious implications for other components on the car. Even though coolant can leak and evaporate over time, in many cars it often looks as though the coolant never needs changing because its level seems to stay the same. However, draining and flushing the coolant system, including the radiator, at least once a year is important. Flushing pushes out all the old coolant, debris from corrosion and scale. If left in the engine, it may become clogged up, potentially causing extensive damage.
Before a mechanic drains the cooling system, he might add coolant cleaner to the coolant and then start the engine, depending on what the manufacturer specifies. After the car has run for a while, he would turn it off and drain it. He would then add water to flush it and drain it again, twice, before finally putting in the fresh coolant.
Driving in Scotland
