"First time using this garage, it had lots of good reviews and the prices were decent so thought I'd give it a try. I am very happy with the work I had done, I took my own ad- blue that they filled for me, it didnt take any longer than expected and the complimentary wash is a nice touch. One thing that did get me thinking was that my car takes 0w30 oil but on my service report they stated they re filled it with 5w30 so gave them a call and was re assured that 0w30 oil was added but the mechanic had wrote the wrong oil down."
"Car was collected and returned at our convenience and can't fault the price!!"
MOT - great service
"A swift service, very helpful and friendly staff"
Great, quick service!
"The work was completed very quickly and I was kept informed throughout the day. I was given a complimentary courtesy car for the day so I could still go about my normal day to day life. Will definately return to this garage in the future."
"Fantastic service, would recommend and use again. Thanks."
"I had a full service and MOT. They collected my car for me first thing then carried out the MOT and rang me to tell me the outcome then carried out the service and rang again when that was completed. They dropped my car back off again at tea time and even rang me when they was on their way. The price was very reasonable. I didnt need to have any work done so i cant really comment on quality of work. But i was really happy with the service i received. The collection and drop off of my car was a life saver because i would have been stranded waiting at the garage if not. The only tiny thing is they didnt reset my service reminder on my car so it still keeps saying my service is over due, but thats minor. Overall very happy"
Awesome Customer Care
"Fabulous service from DSA autocentre. Sarah was amazing and kept me informed about repairs etc throughout the process. I thought the value for money was excellent and the garage really went above and beyond to help me out! Thank you guys so much, I'll be back for sure."
"Job done. Thanks"
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.
You’ll need a week or two to properly explore this extraordinary city which is packed full of cultural, architectural and artistic attractions and delights. But if you’re passing through Sheffield for a shorter period there is a lot you can do in a day.
