REPAIRS & MAINTENANCE
Has your vehicle been making any unusual noises lately? Does it feel unsafe? Can you hear a knocking noise when going over speed humps or turning the steering wheel? Has a light on your dash appeared that wasn't there before?
If you're answer is yes to any of these questions, or if your vehicle just doesn't drive like it used to, it's a good idea to get it inspected. Send us an email and let us know what you've noticed and we'll get back to you as quickly as possible. We'll come to you and do all that we can to get your vehicle back on the road and working safely in no time.
A blinking light on your dash can mean a number of things from your sensors being faulty, to a potentially expensive repair if you don't respond to it. That's why when you see a light show up on your dash you should contact us and we'll diagnose the problem for you as soon as possible.
A timing belt or chain keep the various parts of your car's engine in sync with each other. We can't stress just how important it is to have your timing belt or chain replaced at the recommended service interval. It's not hard to overlook this service as it's a lot more infrequent than the others and can also seem costly, however a late belt/chain replacement can cause engine head failure which is a highly expensive repair. Contact us for a quote if it's your car's timing belt service is due.
If you've notice that you're having trouble changing gears, your vehicle seems to be lacking power, the gears are crunching, the clutch has very little resistance or you notice any leaking fluid - your clutch and/or gearbox will need repairing. Ensure you contact us as soon as you notice any of these issues, otherwise the problem will likely get worse and cause even more problems, leading to higher costs of repair.
CYLINDER HEAD/ENGINE REPAIR OR REPLACEMENT
If you've noticed a slight decrease in your car's power, your check engine light comes on, it takes a few cranks longer than usual to start, the temperature gauge is reaching a higher temperature than usual, the engine is misfiring, or there's a knocking noise coming from the engine, it's likely you car will need it's cylinder head/engine repaired or replaced. Remember if you ever see a red light on the dash while the vehicle is running, turn off the engine and contact us immediately as this indicates a severe problem. If you continue to drive it can cause irreversible damage to your engine.
