Patrick is honest, transparent and reliable. I had a knocking noise from the front ns wheel, so while I was having this investigated I had the Cam belt and water pump changed as it was due. The cam belt was changed very quickly, but we had to wait for the parts for a suspected worn drive shaft. Whilst waiting for the part, Patrick went through all other alternative reasons for the knocking noise. Although it did indeed end up being a worn driveshaft, it was refreshing that Patrick troubleshooted all other avenues in case it was a more simple fix, at no extra cost. In regards to costs, Patrick is more than competitive. Having been quoted £480 for Cam belt only and £533 for a new ns driveshaft, £641 all in is phenomenal. The collection and delivery service is unmatched by any other garage I have ever visited. I would not hesitate to recommended Patrick, and will be using him in future for any requirements my car has. Honestly, you will not be disappointed with Patrick.

The beast mecanic and garage ever...very polite!!! The car was fix the same day....thanks
Really Great Service, value and a high degree of professionalism! Eagle Autos were my first response on WCFMC - it was my first time using the site so I had no idea what to expect. Their fast response time meant that I did a little online research, saw their good reviews and booked in. I was booked in promptly and brought my car in. I suspected i had snapped my handbrake but left my car with the garage. I was called a little while later to let me know that it was infact my brake shoes that had worn down. I was given expert advice and was given my options. They were open, professional, friendly and most of all very trustworthy. If you live in SW London, or even, just in London, I recommend you go there!
They picked the car up and dropped it back. Speedy and easy to use service.
Service was excellent as always.
service was perfect
I was impressed with the price and then professional work carried on by young man with very good knowledge. Highly recommended !!
they did what they promiss . they have done a good job for reasonable price , other garages they give you cheaper quote but they cut corners, i am happy so far
Job well done. Very easy to communicate with the garage. Tight entrance but happy with the price and job. As a student, I dont have much money but this garage gave me the cheapest quote from 7 other garages, except having to travel 4 miles I made the right choice of garage.
Honest Garage. After initial inspection, the quote given was 5 hours labour. The job ended up taking more like 12 hours labour, however the garage honoured the initial quote and only charged for 5. The garage is not professional and slick, instead is honest and hardworking, which in my opinion are far more important. I will return to this garage the next time my car needs fixed/serviced.
Prompt service very helpful admin who accepted repair request late at night to be done the very next morning. Job done, no fuss, MOT passed, will come again. Drop link was also replaced at no extra labor charge.
Good little garage. Had main coolant thermostat replaced in my Range Rover, which is a pig to do, I did one a couple of years ago and didn't want to do it again! All seems good now. I also asked for egr cooler to be removed and supplied the blanking kit. I gave 4 stars not 5 as I asked for removal of the egr cooler, but it was left on, albeit blanked off as I asked but left there redundant all the same which is a bit if a pain as I wanted it gone for easy access in the future. Its not a huge problem, but now something I'll have sort out in warmer weather myself. I would definitely recommend the garage, they were £60 more expensive than another quote on here, but I went by feedback and glad I did. Thanks to Ivy and her team. I'll be using you again. Matt
Great service, very nice people, no time waster!
An exhaust system has the primary function of guiding fumes away from a controlled combustion section of an engine. The exhaust system on a car is carefully designed so the fumes omitted from the engine can be safely transported away from passengers in the car.
The exhaust system is made up of a several parts, all of which could cause potential issues if damaged. Though you only see the tail pipe from the outside of the car, the exhaust system is a large system.
The exhaust ensures fumes are transported from the engine all the way to the tailpipe at the back of the car. The gas flows down from the engine to the flange and onto the catalytic converter, it then travels on to the muffler and resonance chamber before going to the resonator and finally out through the tailpipe.
All of these parts have distinctive functions with piping connecting them along the bottom of the car. Each section of the system has to be completely airtight and functioning properly to ensure the gases are released into the outside environment safely.
Because there are several components of the exhaust system and because it usually stretches the full length of the car, costs can vary.
Depending on the area, part and extent of the damage, you are likely to pay different prices. Some repairs may only consist of sealing a small leak whereas others may result in replacing entire pipes or elements.
If there is a leak in the exhaust system, there is a chance that engine performance will be negatively affected. This is due to the escape of pressure at the wrong point of the system.
It is essential that an exhaust system is not damaged as leakage could pose danger to those inside the vehicle. Hydrocarbons, carbon monoxide and nitrogen oxides could seep into a car if the exhaust is damaged. These gases are also extremely hot and would cause serious damage if they were to meet a passenger.
The piping in an exhaust system must be heat resistant due to the high temperatures of these compounds and if the exhausts integrity is compromised, anything close to the damaged area will be exposed to potential harm.
If your DPF is also blocked or not functioning properly, soot and particulate will escape from the system and cause damage to the environment and people in the surrounding area.
If there is an oil leak, there is only a very small chance that the problem is the exhaust system. This is due to the fact that engine oil doesn’t course through the exhaust like it does for a part like the head gasket.
However, if there is an oil leak, it may get into the combustion system and the result will be blue smoke coming from the exhaust.
A warning light will come on but it will not likely be the check engine light. This is because a problem with the exhaust will be detected specifically by oxygen sensors or the sensors in the DPF if your exhaust system is fitted with one.
A common symptom for a damaged exhaust is a loud roaring noise being emitted from your vehicle. This noise would indicate that you have a problem with the silencer part of the system. A common issue with silencers is corrosion by acidic moisture which is caused by a build-up of the damaging substance.
If a part of the system has cracked or a hole has appeared, you will be able to hear a hissing noise and a chugging sound could mean there is a blockage in the system. If the exhaust is leaking, the issue needs to be addressed immediately as the fumes are dangerous.
There is also a chance that the exhaust is leaking water, in which case, there is a crack or hole somewhere in the system as a possible result of a water leak from the head gasket.
If you hear the exhaust popping or rattling beneath your car it could mean that your exhaust has become misaligned and if you can hear a loud metallic vibration it usually means that something is hitting the exhaust pipe. It could also mean a clamp, mounting or support bracket exhaust is loose.
Hangers and brackets are essential for holding the system in place so if these parts become damaged there is a significant risk that the rest of the system will suffer damage as a result.
If you are able to get underneath your car, it is always the best way to check for signs of damage.
One of the most common issues associated with exhausts is rust build up, however this can often be a minor issue as some pealing of metal is not a huge issue.
If there is a build-up of rust on any part of the system, use a tool such as a screwdriver to see how strong the area feels, if the integrity is solid then the part won’t need replacing however if the metal feels weak when some pressure is applied, its time you get the part removed and a new one installed.
Black smoke coming from your exhaust means that your engine is burning more fuel than it should. This is often caused by a problem with your fuel injectors, air filter or fuel-pressure regulator. Alternatively, the fuel line could be clogged. Burning excessive fuel will have a noticeable effect on fuel economy meaning that you will be spending much more money getting from A-B.
If your exhaust in pumping out blue smoke, oil will have leaked into the engine and been burned in the system. This happens following the valve guide seals or piston rings wearing out and allowing engine oil into the combustion chamber. Engine oil is only meant for the lubrication of parts which are in constant contact with each other.
If engine oil is leaking into the combustion system, you need to have the issue addressed with an oil changeimmediately as low engine oil levels will be incredibly detrimental to your car.
If white smoke is coming from your exhaust, your car could be low on engine coolant from the result of a cracked or warped cylinder head, a cracked engine block or a head gasket failure from overheating.
If engine coolant gets anywhere near the combustion chamber, the liquid will be vaporised and converted into a white gas which is then pushed out through the tailpipe.
If the exhaust is smoking thick black, white or blue fumes, there is also an issue with the system as the exhaust should not be blowing this colour of smoke. To find out why your exhaust is blowing smoke use our dedicated guide.
Car exhaust repair is a service which can be priced at a variety of levels. This is due to the fact that there are a number of things which could go wrong.
