"I have booked MOT and Interim Service via this website to F1 Ipswich. Total £85 (interim service £60 + £25 MOT), When I showed the confirmation I have been told by F1 manager TERRY to ignore it and told me £90 short service and MOT £35. I said OK as my MOT is running out on 11th July. I left my car at 8:45 in the morning as I was asked, Terry said he is going to give me call if anything else needed done on MOT but I never received any call from F1. 3:30 PM when I rang, Terry Said he got my number wrong , which was a lie, as it was booked online for 4 July, Terry called my number to change on 7 July so he had my number. I have been told to come at 4:45. At 5:10 I was in the garage to pick up the car, everyone was in the garage but I have been told to come back tomorrow as he had shut down the computer and he will have to reboot it again to take the payment. What’s the point of using a website to book a garage but when you go to the garage they told me to ignore it."

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.
How to be a better driver
Whether you’re driving in Ipswich or further afield, think about road user etiquette. Showing respect for other road users makes driving more pleasant for you and safer for everyone. For example, if you have to make a last minute change of lane, make your request to change clear to the driver who will need to let you in - and signal your thanks if they do. Be ready to abandon the change of lane if they won’t play ball - your safety (and that of other drivers and pedestrians) is more important than getting to your destination in the shortest time possible. When the position is reversed and a driver asks your permission to change lanes, allow them to as long as it is safe. If you get frustrated, avoid using your horn - it won’t improve matters and might make them considerably worse.
