"No issues great garage"
"I have taken my car here for a few years now, I have never received such excellent service as I have done here! These guys have done a lot of work for me including a complete engine change to a service and I have never ever had a problem with any staff or there work! Everyone at EAC Telford should be proud of themselves for setting such high standards in the industry but most of all making me feel like a valued customer! I can’t thank them enough there excellent A***"
"Very Happy with the Team"
"Smile we’re brilliant picked up my car and came back for it as I was asleep! Dropped it off. The work was done plus extras and very reasonable price £140 for full service & MOT"
Excellent service again
"Have been bringing my vehicles here for a few years now (once manufactures warranty has expired). They price very competitively, but more importantly complete work to dealer standards (better than Vines), and use high quality service parts (Bosch). They are always happy to advise and discuss advisories and recommend what needs to be done. The only constructive critique I could give would be you sometimes need to chase updates, having said that it’s probably because they are so busy, which is s recommendation on its own!!"
As always, brilliant.
"I’ve been taking my car here for a couple of years now and every time it’s an absolute pleasure. I highly recommend. Thanks again for helping me out at such short notice."
"Our only observation was that on collecting the car and using the out of hours key box, not only had both we and another customer, both not been given the whole code, the last digit was missing, so thankfully the garage was actually still open, but, both keys were in the same box!? Appreciating the other person was a customer, but he was as shocked to open the box, after a member of staff retrieved the right code, to find our key in with his!"
A car radiator disperses heat away from the main engine block. A car engine works by burning fuel (whether petrol or diesel), and this generates a considerable amount of heat. In addition, a car engine has many moving parts; this movement creates friction, which in turn adds to the heat.
Because a car engine must remain not too hot in order to avoid overheating and seizure, when it reaches a certain temperature the thermostat opens to allow the flow of coolant and water around the engine and back to the radiator, where it loses heat to the cooler surrounding air. The front grill of the car allows outside air to blow over the radiator. If the radiator gets too hot, for example on a very hot day, or when the car is stationary, a fan behind the radiator starts, helping to blow air over it.
The most common reason for needing a car radiator repair is a leak. There are many seals, gaskets and hoses in the cooling system that can deteriorate or get a hole in them. Furthermore, every radiator needs to be properly maintained and the coolant must be kept topped up. Your garage should provide coolant changes at the same time as your annual service.
It’s also a good idea to check your car’s coolant level regularly. If it seems to be dropping a lot, then you may have a leak in the cooling system.
A British icon since the swinging 1960s, the Mini is a small economy car that was made by the British Motor Corporation from 1959 until 2000 and is now under the umbrella of BMW. The transverse engine front-wheel drive layout influenced a generation of car makers, and allowed 80 percent of the car’s floorpan to be used for passengers and luggage - that’s a lot of space!
In 1999 the Mini was voted the second most influential car of the 20th century, behind the Ford Model T, and ahead of the Citroën DS and Volkswagen Beetle. The performance versions, the Mini Cooper and Cooper "S," were successful as rally cars, winning the Monte Carlo Rally in 1964, 1965 and 1967. The British manufacturer now offers a selection of nine cars across a broad spectrum of vehicle choices, from the traditional three door hatchback to the more radical Coupe, Countryman and Paceman. It also developed a range of frugal engines, both petrol and diesel, to reduce running costs.
