Great service from this Garage. Very personable staff great information and explanation every step of the way. As a single woman did not feel unsure of honest quote which happens frequently and in fact felt very secure throughout the repair. Will certainly use again and would definitely recommend them. Thank you VRS.
Oil change fine. Follow-up jobs to hand brake and calipers were a joke. Returned twice to get hand brake sorted and ended up having to go somewhere else. And calipers were put on rear wheels shoddily. Had to return as wheels were hot. Pins were discovered as being disintegrated on all four calipers by another garage - how they didn't notice that I have no idea. The oil change was fine though.
well where do I start with my praise for everyone at VRS REPAIR SERVICES who go that extra mile to put their customers first, after being totally ripped off quote wise by the big high street exhaust companies one of which refused my car because the manifold bolts were seized,VRS came to my help within minutes of posting on the site, cost was quarter than the high street exhaust places and an extremely fast turnaround. before paying any expensive high street fitting centre costs give VRS a call you will not be dissappointed, am so pleased to find these guys. VRS = VALUE RELIABLE SERVICE. Thank you VRS your a credit to the auto trade

I was stuck 200 miles from home with the slave cylinder gone.As I have previously run a small garage business I knew right away it was a gearbox out job and get clutch replaced at the same time.These guys sorted it out for me in the time they said it would take at the price they quoted.They did a great job with good communication throughout and gave good professional advice on anything to look out for.They also changed the gearbox oil while they were in that far.Would definitely do business with them again.Cheers guys,well appreciated.
Work completed to price quoted. Finished promptly, staff were friendly and helpful.
Quick responses through the platform and good service for drop-off and collection. I would happily use Torque Garage again. Thanks
Full service and MOT done the same day had to pay for extras to pass the MOT but was also great and cheap. Very friendly also provided me a courstey car which is a bonus as need to go to work and then back for my car. Outstanding. Will definitely taking my car back there. Highly recommended cheers lads
Fantastic, very thorough, i don't know Newcastle at all so it was great find the garage!
Work carried out at short notice, all as quoted. Highly recommended
Fast work excellent price
The price only increased because I also asked for new batteries in keys. They completed the work quickly and car was back when they said it would be. Marvellous service and my car won't be going anywhere else for servicing or repair from now on. Totally recommend Gators.
Customer service was excellent from the start which made me feel confident to deal with the garage. Compliments to Steve and Lee ! They collected the car from work then returned it after - a major time saving convenience for me. Great qlty work done and at an affordable price. 1st time to deal with Gator Garage and I was so pleased with them that I'll now be taking in our 2nd family car next week. I recommend them.
Really impressive service. They did exactly as they said they would. Would definitely use them again.
Steve and the team at Britannia made an excellent job of my car service and MOT. Steve gave friendly and professional advice on my car and as a result it now drives like new. Cannot thank them enough. Great job at a great price. I will be back.
Steve got back to me with a quote extremely quickly and happily answered any queries I had regarding the price. for example the original quote was £160 which I thought was extremely cheap, I asked a question whether everything was included in the price but the discs were not. this meant the price increased slightly but it was still by the cheapest price by far at £225. I was most impressed when I was offered a brand new courtesy car while mine was having work done, which is a real bonus! all in all the job ended up costing £358 upon the discovery that a calliper needed replacing also, I was more than happy to pay the extra on top of the quote as I was told in good time that it was needed. I found the guys very helpful and easy to deal with and the discovery of an Easter egg and mug after picking my car up made it that bit sweeter..... nice touch!
An excellent service ... great communications, everything explained simply, flexible and a superb courtesy car. Couldn't recommend them enough!
Bang on!! Price quoted was the price I paid. They inspected my front discs and pads and said they were fine, no need to replace. Hire car was spot on and a nice little touch giving it to me free of charge for being a first time customer although the £10 charge it would have been, is a good price. Would thoroughly recommend.
Excellent customer service with Steve Martin (owner/manager). I've owned Audi A3's for many years now and used a flexible long-life service with Main Dealer, but find them very expensive these days. Britannia Auto Centre provided same service and uses Original Equipment parts/dealership recommended lubricants etc. and I was highly impressed with their efficiency and with a courtesy car provided too. Would not hesitate to use for future services/MOT's. K.Walton. 28.04.2016.

A Gearbox is the device used to increase and decrease torque, a twisting force which causes rotation, through the increase or reduction of speed. Ultimately, the Gearbox is used to change the speed of the vehicle.
If you are putting your car into a gear, only for it to slip out, it’s obvious you have a fault. A likely cause is that the gears themselves will be worn down.
You will have to have the parts replaced as a result of the damage as it will only get worse as time progresses.
It would also be wise to check your transmission fluid levels as the parts may have worn down as a result of low lubricants.
Like many of the issues listed on this guide, low levels of transmission fluid can be the reason for the problem.
If you are hearing more noise than usual from your car while it is neutral, then check the levels of fluid and try topping it up.
If this does not resolve the problem, then the most likely cause will be worn down gearbox parts.
As soon as you see ‘Service Engine Soon’ in yellow on your dashboard, that is exactly what you should do as it is an indicator that something is about to go wrong or already has.
There are a variety of sensors on different parts of your car including ones on the transmission. They are in place to detect specific signs of an issue developing such as vibrations or jerks which you may not be able to see, hear or feel.
Paying attention to the light could help you save money on a gearbox repair so make sure to do so!
A dragging clutch is caused when the flywheel and clutch fail to disengage which makes changing gears almost impossible.
This gearbox problem will likely be accompanied by a grinding noise being emitted every time you try to change gears.
Luckily a gearbox repair cost will not be extortionate if you are suffering from this problem.
If the clutch has too much slack in the pedal then the linkage between the clutch disk and the pedal wont be able to pull the two parts apart.
Therefore, the linkage simply needs to be tightened or replaced which isn't as expensive as other gearbox repairs.
If your car simply refuses to go into a specific gear it is worth checking the level of you fluid as this is a common issue, though can be resolved by topping the liquid up.
There are other potential issues that would prevent you being able to go into a specific gear.
Occasionally the computer which is part of your car can be the source of the problem, alternatively the shift cables could require adjusting.
A burning smell in a car is never a good sign and as soon as you notice it is vital that you call a mobile mechanic or break down assistance in order to diagnose the problem and find a solution.
When it comes to the gearbox, a burning smell can be the result of transmission fluid overheating.
If the fluid system fails, then other parts of the system will suffer as a result.
Transmission fluid acts as lubricant and a cooling agent for the moving parts of a transmission as they are in constant perpetual motion as a car is driven, this causes friction and a build-up of heat.
Therefore a lack of transmission fluid will be harmful to these parts and a burning smell will be emitted.
If you ignore the burning smell in your car then an entire transmission replacement is likely to be required.
A car should not grind or shake at all so do not think that its normal even if it is gradual and only minor.
If ignored the issue will get worse and you will end up incurring a higher gearbox repair cost.
Grinding and shaking is a common symptom of a faulty gearbox when you move from one gear to the next.
There may even be an issue with the clutch if you feel these effects after you change gears.
If so it is likely that your clutch will need replacing.
The gear synchronizers in your car may be also be badly damaged or worn down if you feel shaking or grinding.
The transmission system can only operate while automatic transmission fluid lubricates, cleans and conditions the seals while acting as hydraulic fluid.
Even if the transmission fluid is below normal levels, your car will suffer and if it all leaks, you will face serious problems.
Automatic transmission fluid (ATF) is bright red and, surprisingly, smells sweet (that is if everything is in working order).
If you detect a leak and the fluid fits this description then you are in luck, all that you require is a hole to be filled.
However, if you come across liquid which is dark and emits a burning smell then the issue is likely to be worse.
Typically this will require the entire transmission system to be flushed or changed as it has become contaminated and is no longer suitable for use in the engine.
ATF liquid is different to motor oil as the engine doesn’t consume any of it, therefore, if it is below its normal level, it’s a fact that you have a leak.
If you would like to check the fluid level, try to locate the transmission case (close to the fill plug) and perform a visual assessment.
Once more, if you have a leak, it is essential that you address the issue and find a clutch or gearbox specialist using WhoCanFixMyCar as we will be able to provide you with a range of quotes from local mechanics.
If you try to move into a certain gear and you feel resistance, or the gearstick keeps popping out, then there is definitely an issue.
There should not be any pushback when you go into gear and so if you even feel the slightest change you should take your car to a gearbox specialist or automatic gearbox specialist as soon as possible.
Typically, this is a problem involving the clutch as well so be prepared to replace it if you run into this type of issue.
It can be difficult to diagnose the extent of a gearbox problem which involves the clutch, so the best advice is to take your car into a clutch and gearbox specialist as mentioned above.
Hearing a strange noise from your car is probably the best way to know that something isn’t right.
There are a plethora of issues which could be causing a noise to come from your car engine and the gearbox is one system which could be causing a new sound.
The specific noise will vary greatly on the model of the car, part and specific issue so it is almost impossible to specifically identify an issue from a sound alone.
The biggest indicator that your gearbox has an issue will be if you hear a clunking noise when you shift gears which sound mechanical, abrupt and loud.
The same can be said of automatic gearboxes, if you notice a clunking noise as you accelerate, slow down or drive on an incline, it would be indicative of an issue with the transmission.
Even if the noise sounds severe, it may be a minor issue, however it will turn into a major one if you do not diagnose the transmission problem.
The gearbox repair cost will spiral if you neglect to address the problem.
Whether you need to replace an automatic gearbox or replace a manual gearbox, the price will vary from one garage to the next and the cost will also vary on the model of the car.
A reconditioned gearbox is a part which has been broken but has been fixed by a transmission expert. If you suffer from a gearbox problem, there is the worry about spending money on new parts, however, it is often possible to salvage engine parts and a reconditioned gearbox is ideal from those wanting to avoid spending money on expensive new parts.
Reconditioned gearbox prices vary depending on the car model however it is always worth shopping around for the best price.Finding a mechanic you can trust to do a good job and charge a fair price, is not always easy, which is why we've simplified the process.
