Good customer service. Excellent work
friendly staff. garage was very busy so it seems a very popular garage. great value and excellent service.
Good communication, pick up and drop off was appreciated. Great price, only missing 1 star because I didn't feel the paperwork received was as thorough as could be - not a lot of info given as to what was completed/what wasn't needed this time.
Very happy with everything, great customer service, very helpful with arrangements in collecting the car and great honnesty regarding the condition of the flywheel with it not needed to also be replaced. Many many thanks!
Second full service done MOT passed, great people..will definitely come back again...
Great! Would definitely use again
The garage was excellent dropped of the car in the morning and by 3:00 pm the new clutch was fitted. I would recommend the mechanics at this garage and will be going back fo my MOT. Thanks Lloyd
Great guys, friendly, very helpful. Came out in heavy snow to pick up the car and returned it once fixed. Altogether fab service. Will use again. Thanks
Despite not adding the price for a filter, the quote was extremely reasonable. Whilst it was at the garage, we asked them to have a look at other minor things. They were really friendly and helpful, what was good about them as well, was they were genuine in what needed doing to the van and didn't try anything on. We will definitely be using them again.
Very nice guys
Good quick service, fault found and repaired with new parts
quick response, excellent service. Will recommend and would use again if any more electrical problems.
Worked on my door problem longer than we thought, sorted my problem and was really good, great service
Very friendly service highly recommended car now repaired thank you
Excellent diagnosis and swift repair. Very flexible on appointment time, which was really helpful. Friendly, knowledgable and reliable.
Communicative and very helpful. Happy with the service I have received from start to finish and even looked at additional issues for the original quoted price which they didn’t need to do. Would recommend and would use again.
Highly recommend. Dexter gave me a very fair qoute and did an excellent job with my head gasket. He also kept me informed on the job progession and was true to his word.
Couldn’t be more happy. Dexter quoted me the most competitive price and also arranged for my vehicle to be picked up at no extra cost. Job was completed in good time and I couldn’t be happier. Great service from a great bunch of guys. I’ll definitely be back and will recommend them to all my friends in the area!
Dexter did great job for the price he quoted me took little longer than first expected but with cars that can happen sometimes, kept me informed of things and now car is running great
I come to garage convinced I have a DPF problem, however Drew was able to find out that the Intercooler air pipe was damage and the issues come from there. With an impeccable respect for customer and other competitors, did the job, and make the full service, and got me 2 tires and definetly got a new customer! The have all the equipment a big garage does, but with an old-fashioned customer service of trust and service. Well done. I already made some recommendations at my work.
Diesel Particulate Filters are extremely important to have in your vehicle. The filter captures and stores exhaust soot in order to help reduce emissions coming from diesel cars.
Ever since 2009, the Euro 5 standard has been enforced, a rule which ensures all new diesel cars must have particulate filters fitted.
These pieces of equipment were introduced in an effort to reduce the particle and soot emissions from diesel engines. Diesel Particulate filters (DPF) trap soot before it blows out of an exhaust and like any filter, it requires cleaning in order to maintain performance.
Fortunately the filter itself has self-cleaning capabilities known as regeneration.
There are two types of regeneration which can be carried out on your car.
This process happens automatically while the exhaust is at a high temperature which will usually occur when you are driving down a motorway or quickly down an A-road. However, as many vehicles aren’t always being driven at high speeds, an alternative system for regeneration exists.
This method of cleaning the DFP is controlled by an engine management computer and happens automatically when the filter reaches 45% of its limit. The process is initiated by the fuel injection being increased which makes the exhaust heat up and therefore clear the filter. However, if your drive is a short one and the process tries to initiate, it will not be able to properly clear the filter, in this eventuality, the warning light in your car will come on.
A drive of about ten minutes at a speed of around 40mph should be adequate for the process to be successful.
If these issues are effecting your car it is almost certain that you will need your filter replacing which is likely to cost upwards of £1000 including diagnostic and labour time.
And if you were thinking of saving all of that time and money by removing the filter completely, think again, it’s illegal to remove the DPF.
The Department for Transport states that it is an offence to remove the filter or modify the piece of equipment in a way which would result in the vehicle failing air pollutant emission standards. Breaking the law will result in the vehicle not being road worthy so if you are ever offered to have your filter removed, make sure to keep this in mind.
Every MOT now includes a check for the DPF and a smoke test from the exhaust so there is very little chance of getting away with removing the filter.
If you need to have the filter regenerated manually, you must take your vehicle to a trained professional immediately. They will initiate a process where the exhaust is heated up to a point where regeneration happens and soot is cleared from the filter.
