"Happy with service"
"After they've told me that there's no elevetor free, ask me to wait inside and, while my car was still in the garage door, a guy start pouting some "coolant" into my radiator and more on the floor...pretending that they are replacing my coolant. They never drain my coolant...just pour some extra coolant through the engine compartment in the ideea that I believe that the liquid on the pavement is in fact my old coolant."

"AllCars services and MOT’d my car at a very reasonable price. They were friendly and kept me informed and I would definitely recommend them and use them again "
Sneaky MOT add ons
"I had my van MOT'd at the garage. When they phoned to say they said it had passed but had needed a couple of wipers. When I queried this, they retrieved the old wipers which had no splits and looked in perfect condition, so my MOT cost 50% more than I think should have."
"They explained to me things that properly will need sorting for the next mot. Also the MOT was very cheap"
"Everything was swift, concise and made easy!"
"Can't fault them, will be using again."
Really Great Service
"We are a small Company and wanted somewhere local to carry out our Servicing and MOT's for our Company Vehicles. The Service we have received is great, work carried out in a timely fashion and collection and delivery at no extra charge. Highly recommended"
"MOT was fine - did not ring when finished, but know great problem"
Power Assisted Steering, or ‘PAS' as it is also known, is a mechanism that helps you to steer your car. In most vehicles, the PAS relies on a hydraulic system to aid turning the vehicle's wheels. If you have ever driven a car with no Power Steering you will have most certainly noticed the difference between having PAS and not. Power Steering used to be a luxury in certain vehicles, but nowadays it is almost standard in every type of vehicle.
In the early days of the automotive industry, power-assisted steering was a luxury and was only available in high-end vehicles. Most new cars now have it as standard. That’s because they’ve become heavier, with wider tyres and front wheel drive, and would be extremely difficult to drive without PAS. This makes a car not only more pleasant to drive, but safer to drive too.
There are two types of hydraulic power-assisted steering: rack & pinion and the recirculating ball. Rack & pinion is the most common. The recirculating ball is far less common and only really exists in vans and trucks. Both have high-pressure hoses that connect the steering rack to the two sides of the centre seal. One hose sends hydraulic fluid from the power-steering pump to the steering mechanism, while the other directs fluid back to the pump. When turned left or right, the steering wheel’s steering mechanism allows the hydraulic fluid to pass to respective side of the steering rack, pushing the seal and rack in the necessary direction.
Electric power-assisted steering is fully electric. The wheels of the car receive direct assistance from an electric motor which is mounted on either the steering rack or steering column or directly to the steering rack. Sensors decide how much assistance to apply at any time.
When hydraulic fluid lubricates and seals the power-steering pump and hoses to prevent corrosion it can leak or gradually become less effective, making it harder to turn the steering wheel. Typically, a mechanic will check hydraulic fluid levels during an annual service.
If the electric motor fails, power-assisted steering will stop working, so the motor would need replacing. As with any electrical system, software problems can occur, necessitating an update.
