"I recently got an interim service and MOT for my car. I was happy with the charges for both and the simplicity of the online booking system. The garage have good flexible arrangements for dropping the car off the night before the service is due. Only slight negative and it wasn't a big issue for me as I was working till 5 o'clock was that I booked the car in using the online booking system for an AM appointment 2-3 weeks prior to the service date. I phoned the garage mid afternoon to ask for an update on my car and was told the MOT passed but it was waiting for a service. I was then told I would get a call when the service was done and the car could be collected. I did not get that call but assumed the car would be ready by 5pm and fortunately it was, although several cars had to be moved to get it out ready for me to drive away."

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

BookMyGarage can compare garages the length and breadth of Scotland, whether you’re negotiating Glasgow City Centre or gazing at the expanse of Loch Ness.
