The service I received was first class. This is a family run business that treats its customers like extended family. Chris picked my car up from work and left a courtesy car for me should I need it. The job was completed entirely to my satisfaction and the management and staff are so friendly and utterly professional. I popped into the garage the next day with a separate minor issue with my car and Chris sorted it out on the spot and no charge was made. I'd recommend this garage to anyone without hesitation. Thanks John and Chris.
Service carried out as requested. Very efficient and friendly staff. I'd definitely use this company in the future.
very nice people and good service , will go there for my next one too
Utterly brilliant, they did the whole thing in less than an hour. Can’t fault the service, more like a pit team in formula one!!!
I'm so happy with the help from this garage, my car failed it's MOT at another garage and was wanting me to pay £480 to have it fixed! Lee offered to have my car collected to give it a second opinion, he rang me within a few hours and told me my car was fine
excellent service great job and good price on extra work and was still done in time scale. Will happily use them again.
Having my vehicles repaired usually fills me with dread, as the final bill is often a lot more than expected. I had part of my exhaust repaired after requesting a quote from RMC, so I knew exactly how much the repair would be. As it happens, it was £80 cheaper than the competition On arrival, I was greeted and shown what the repair to my vehicle would consist of. Everything that was agreed, was carried out by Lee and his very competent staff. To be honest, this experience could not have been any better and I left feeling very satisfied. If you are looking for a professional outfit to look after your vehicle, then give Lee and his team a try, you certainly won't be disappointed.
Great service, thank you
Amazing service from this garage. Came and picked up my car from work as I couldn't get any time off. Car was fixed within an hour so super fast. Would highly recommend to anyone. Fair price and amazing service
Excellent service with lovely cheery staff. Price was as quoted will Defo use again. Thank you xxx
Amazing, fast work, most of the other garages on here were quoting me double what they did. can’t recommend these guys enough, Will be using again in the very near future.
David from AF was very polite profesional and friendly. He picked my car up from home and dropped it off when the work was done. The work was done to a satisfactory standard. There was a very small issue but this was rectified immediately to my satisfaction.
Fast, friendly and competitively priced. Would definitely recommend!
Dropped car off on the morning was explained what work would be done .They later rang to say it was ready before the time .Had no problems with this Garage would probably use them again
Very efficient booking process and work carried promptly whilst I waited. Very pleased with the work carried out and with the price I paid.
I would definitely recommend TDL for many reasons- firstly I rang on a Friday morning and they fitted me in later the same morning! I was shown step by step the process of regenerating the air con as well as being given valuable advice regarding its use in the future. Coffee (as promised on the phone!) arrived immediately and despite arriving early for the appointment, my car went straight in (literally!) to be hooked up. Very friendly staff, family run business who operate a professional service ,with reasonable prices and even pick up and deliver your car if requested. I will certainly be calling again for other quotes and envisage I would use them again in the future with confidence! Thanks Trevor, Trudi and the team!
I'm very pleased to have found this garage close to home, very efficient personal service and competitive on cost. Thank you Trevor and Trudy, I was fully confident that the work would be carried out to a high standard and will certainly be using you again. Many thanks.
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.
