Great friendly service
"Work carried out quickly, was kept well informed, checked with me before carrying out anything which may incur cost, friendly staff"
"Happy with quality of work and value. Could have been kept more up to date about what was happening and when would be ready. Also didn't realise they had to drive it to another garage for MOT."
Very good overall
"Very good service overall, let down slightly by communication. I was called in the afternoon to tell me what additional costs I would need to pay to pass my MOT but then nobody phoned me when my car was ready. When I phoned up at the end of the day to check I was told it was ready and to come straight away, I then ended up waiting half an hour for somebody to come back to the garage to print a receipt."
Service and MOT
"With this being my first MOT I thought the car would sail through so at first when I was told it needed wear and tear I was a bit shocked. But actually Paul took the time out to explain the car had done 30k miles it made complete sense whaynhe was saying, I’ll just make sure I keep on top Of tyres etc throughout the year and not just wait till next years MOT."
Fantastic Service !
"First Garage I have ever felt comfortable walking into. This will for sure be my 'go to' garage from now on."
Very good service
"I booked the MOT through the Internet and the booking did not go through properly but they took my car anyway and said they would fit it in, this was at 8.30 and my MOT was done by 10.15."
"Happy with the staff and service provided"
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.
From its 18th century status as the Empire’s second city to the urban deprivation and economic malaise of the post-war period, Liverpool has had its fair share of highs and lows. This irrepressible city has bounced back with style to become the thriving and charismatic place it is today, reflected by a stint as European Capital of Culture in 2008.
