"I have used MC Autos a couple of times for general repair and MOT they have always provided great service always been honest"
"Great service and fair price"
Couldn't ask for better!
"This is the 2nd time I have used MC Autos. The first time I had some repairs done to my wheel alignment, they kept me up to date of when my car will be ready, they rung me before any further work went on. When I picked my car up the mechanic explained to me thoroughly what was wrong with the car and exactly what they did to fix it which gave me a good understanding as I know nothing about cars. I had my MOT done most recently, and again, everyone was helpful, it was an easy process, no issues. Overall MC Autos are kind, genuine, and good at what they do. I will definitely be using these guys in the future for any problems and servicing of my car!"
Great all round service
"A very warm welcoming family business, wonderful experience kept me informed throughout the process,will definitely use again."
"Extremely happy with service."
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.
What do you need from your garage?
You may live within walking distance of a garage which offers most of the services you need. However, by sticking with the nearest garage in Croydon you could be missing out on a better deal.
