Good work as always
"Good, efficient work."
"I recently got an interim service and MOT for my car. I was happy with the charges for both and the simplicity of the online booking system. The garage have good flexible arrangements for dropping the car off the night before the service is due. Only slight negative and it wasn't a big issue for me as I was working till 5 o'clock was that I booked the car in using the online booking system for an AM appointment 2-3 weeks prior to the service date. I phoned the garage mid afternoon to ask for an update on my car and was told the MOT passed but it was waiting for a service. I was then told I would get a call when the service was done and the car could be collected. I did not get that call but assumed the car would be ready by 5pm and fortunately it was, although several cars had to be moved to get it out ready for me to drive away."

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.
Driving in Scotland

BookMyGarage can compare garages the length and breadth of Scotland, whether you’re negotiating Glasgow City Centre or gazing at the expanse of Loch Ness.
