"very efficient and great value for money"
"MOT failed but that's not their fault :D , as a garage they doing good job."
"I had booked both a service and MOT, but needed to reschedule the service until the end of month. I kept the Mot booking but slept in. The team at express motors were so accommodating and fit me in later that day. I can't fault them, they have always been exemplary at what they do, and for this reason I continue to take my car back."
"competent service, found £12.30 expensive rear number plate light bulb change ,MOT test excellent value."
"Friendly staff, no hassle changing the booking to the following weekend after my plans changed last minute."
"Happy with service, staff were helpful. Great prices. I was able to book my car on the day I wanted. Would definitely return to them."
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.
