"Picked up my car and dropped it off. Excellent price, very happy."
Really good service
"Very friendly reception staff They serviced the car ahead of time too"
"Very helpful service desk when needed to change address for free collectiondelivery. Ready when they said it would be. Cheaper than quoted as finished quicker(that's never happened to me before!) Very pleasant mechanic. Wasn't expecting such good service."
"Excellent customer service. MOT completed in 90 mins. Car was even washed afterwards! All for £9.99 Can't fault it. Will be taking my wife's car for MOT for sure."
Pleased with the service
"Got my car service and MOT here. Cheapest in the area. My car was picked up and returned to my house for free. I was kept updated after my service was completed to tell me everything was OK and the price was as quoted. Really friendly service, when my car returned it had been cleaned, which was a lovely surprise. Will definitely be using again in the future!"
No show to pick car up
"Nobody turned up waited in all day but no show I took a day off work for nothing"
"Prompt service, highly recommended."
"The experience was marred by the confusion, when I was forced, in the absence of any confirmation from the garage, to telephone the garage the day before the work was due to be carried out, about whether the booking, made weeks earlier, was recorded. Communication between garage and customer needs to be improved - including confirmation of booking by email or telephone call 2 or 3 days beforehand, especially when bookings are made some weeks in advance."
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.
