"I was let down by one of the national companies the evening before my appointment, Allcars managed to fit me in at very short notice despite being busy. The team made me feel welcome when I arrived, even taking the time to make small talk while I waited. I understand that an MOT is a standard practice with a fairly standard time, however, the 45 minutes or so flew by while I chatted with the office team; a real family feel to this place. I'd recommend them every day."
Great all round service
"Kept me informed multiple times throughout the day, as well as carrying the work out quickly. The members of staff knew what they were talking about when discussing specifics of my car, would highly recommend."
"Happy with overall service ce"
"Easy to book, and great customer service"
"This garage is a fantastic, honest and genuine garage run by guys who really know what they are doing and no BS. Highly recommended."
"Efficient service, car was serviced and had several parts replaced, which was all done in a day. I was kept informed of what repairs were needed during the day. For all the work that was done, it was well priced. Friendly and helpful staff too."
"Staff were helpful and friendly, kept me updated on how long it will take."
Did the job
"Good service, nice staff, no complaints."
"Great friendly service at affordable prices. Have previously had an LED front lamp replaced and tyres replaced. Kept informed throughout the day of any additional costs."
"Happy with it all, not the cheapest but I have never had any issues and I have been going to Whiteley tyreshops since it opened."
"Couldn't fault the service but was given some recommendations which needed doing. I was given a quote which seemed quite high so went to 2 other garages. I took my car into both and they both said that the work didnt need to be done! Very disappointing."
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.
