Great service, recommend
"Very good service, helpful with quotes and prices, great value for money and Graham a lovely bloke!"
Excellent work done
"Very pleased with everything, service took a little longer than they originally said but I was kept informed throughout and the car was washed afterwards"
Great service and value
"quick turnaround and service, price was a lot better than I feared too!"
"Great will use again"
"After dropping my car off the garage dropped me off at work, also offered to pick me up but didn't need to. The rating given for keeping informed about repairs is low but to be fair I did inform them prior to servicing that I would be unobtainable for a few hours so quite hard to rate this fairly. Every thing else was spot on."
Friendly to deal with
"Good communications, always able to speak to someone. Very friendly, no hard sell on anything. Free pick up and drop off and worked around the school run for me. Reasonably priced and work seems sound. I will use them again."
Really good service
"Booked an mot & full service with free collection and delivery from my flat. Car was picked up at 8.30am and we were phoned about 11am to advise me of repairs that were needed for it to pass the mot. My car was dropped back to me at my flat just after 1pm with the not certificate and invoice. Good value and lovely service!"
"Very help and friendly no issues"
"Always happy with this garage, they kept me informed about the issue, pricing and how quickly my car could be fixed. Very friendly staff."
"Extremely happy with the repair."
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.
What do you need from your garage?
This might sound like a question with an obvious answer: you need a garage that can service or repair your car quickly and at a good price. But think again and you may realise there are other factors that affect your choice of garage in Gateshead. If you need to bring your son or daughter with you when you take your car in, are there toys in the waiting room? If you’re dropping the car off between school and work, can you pick up a cup of coffee while you’re there? Might the garage even collect your car and drop it back at your house after the work is done? You can find answers to all these questions on BookMyGarage.
