Great service and high quality work. Bob was very knowledgeable and helpful, and price was fair.
I went for a abs fault, they very professional and friendly fix it in no time, I sincerely recommend this garage, they deliver as promised. I am making this my repair garage for the future
Did the work the following afternoon. Great service, good price. Definitely recommend
Very good service with honest feedback in relation to what needs changing or seen to within a specific time period. I would definitely recommend this garage.
Very good. My Bmw 3series i318 from 2002 was having heavy misfires, rough idles and would lose power in the middle of driving. I decided to take to to C and R motors. Since they were working on a few cars already so until its my turn it would take an hour or two, so i deiced to leave the car there and come back home. Upon starting work on my car, i was kept up to date on the situation, what they found and what they were doing. The next day morning i was given a call by them telling me the car is ready to pick up. To my surprise the car had been fixed and it turns out to be a much more simple problem compared to what i actually thought. I believe it was the VVT sensor acting up. I was charged £180 with Vat for the manual labor/replacing Spark plugs with higher quality ones and the diagnostic test itself. Overall i would recommend this place, they know what they are doing and they do their job honestly.
Wonderful job. Thanks MayCar for helping me finding plenty garages to choose from. Five star service

The most friendly accommodating garage I have ever encountered, they made me feel at ease and explained fully how the clutch worked and what they would do to replace it. I would send my grandmother there with the confidence that she would be looked after respectfully, a professional service and even did the job to suit me. Many thanks to all the staff concerned.
Excellent work and service. Went above and beyond to make sure I was aware of everything. Happy to recommend.
I had a full service and MOT, the service was very professional at a great price! They even washed my car while they were at it... brilliant :-) Would highly recommend.
My second full service from this garage. Very competitive price and excellent service. I would recommend without reservation.
I had a full service and MOT, the service was very professional at a great price! Would highly recommend.
Excellent service! no other hidden charges they also fixed something underneath my car which was hanging out with no charge
Like most car owners, I have my preferred garage but tried Paul and his team when my usual place couldn't urgently schedule a repair to pass an MOT. Paul took the car in the next day, talked me through the whole process, gave me options and completed an excellent job exactly when he said he would. Would highly recommend.
Paul was really helpful and had the fan and re-wiring done within a couple of hours and I picked my car up the same day. They also cleaned it for me which was an added bonus and greatly appreciated! Im sticking with this garage from now on!
Friendly and efficient service, wouldn't hesitate to recommend!
Good value for money. Paul was very friendly and he fixed my car In no time. Very nice and satisfactory experiance. I Will recommend to everybody who want good service. Thanks Paul, just in time to organise my trip.
Professional and friendly approch. Work properly done in really a short time. Highly recommented.
Billy is honestly one of the friendliest guys i’ve had the chance of dealing with in all the time i’ve spent dealing with garages and their staff. He is very friendly and understanding and the communication is great. My car was repaired at a very competitive price and the job done was 10/10, not only that but in only a couple of days. My car was also picked up by a tow truck at a very good price. My car now looks as good as new or even better i’d say and if you’re to get a quote from Billy do not hesiatate at all! Would definitely recommend and i look forward to doing further business with Billy and his team in the future Thanks mate!
The car has been picked up and returned in 2 days in an immaculate condition. Great value for money, thanks Billy.
4 fab wheels were a pleasure to work with! Billy was extremely friendly and helpful, explaining everything very clearly and taking very good care of the car. He contacted me periodically throughout the process to keep me updated on the progress of the repair and was always available to answer my questions. I would strongly recommend him and his team to anyone who wants a trustworthy and professional service! Thanks for everything, Billy!
Billy did a fantastic job of repairing a dent to the passenger front door on my Fiat 500. Careful attention to detail and provided excellent work at a very competitive price. Thank you so much, Billy!!
Long story short, my car was involved in a minor accident at a Car park. It has hit a pole which has left the front bumper dented, cracked, as well as the driver side front wing gone out of alignment. Upon receiving this quote. I did not contact this garage. I was looking around for the best quote and then Billy, a really nice guy gave me a call. My first impression was wow. This guy knows how to deal with customers really well. So upon discussing the damage. I thought to just bring my car in for a closer look and to get an accurate quote. Upon meeting Billy, I was surprised about the space that the garage has. It also has other services which I will definitely would come back to such as tyre changes, mechanics and etc. He inspected and has given me two option. The first was to get fix the same bumper but I opted to go for a brand new bumper since I wanted to change the bumper in the near future. Gave my car in. Two days later, Car is ready. Upon inspecting the car I was really surprised about the quality of work. The wing is back aligned and the bumper which is of course a new bumper is prefect. Now my car looks brand new as if it was not involved in an accident. Billy and his crew are top people. Quality work and the best price. The level of professionalism and customer service is astonishing. Out of 10; Customer service: 10/10 Quality of work: 10/10 Would definitely come back again and highly recommended.
Great work, very quick. Kept me informed all the way through and did some extra jobs at no extra charge. Very polite. Would recommend them.
Picked car up on time and changed clutch and flywheel using best quality parts. Also did a health check and found egr needed cleaning and an engine mount was worn and would need changing but was safe to drive with . Car back same day. Very pleased with all work . All worn part given back for me to inspect and diagnoses spot on
The service I received was excellent. They collected the car and dropped it off all in a day, they made sure I was happy with the work before asking me to pay. And finally they called me to make sure they could drop the car off in advance so I could make sure I was in. I would definitely use them in the future.
I highly recommend Peter and his team. Although I was initially slightly sceptical as I had never delt with CDS before. I even went to their garage half way through the work to make sure they were legitimate and to check on the work. All I can say is that I will only be using them from now on for my entire family's car and van needs. The quote was for £360 for a new clutch but the car needed quite a lot of other work that I was happy to be completed locally. But after they collected the car their communication was impeccable with video messages to demonstrate any new discoveries. They were exceptionally patient with me whilst I deliberated the options. In the end I had all of the outstanding work carried out by Peter and his team who were very kind to do the vast majority of the work for free with me only paying the cost value of the parts (I checked the car parts price with europarts and I could not buy them cheaper than they supplied them to me for) they even washed and valeted the car and delivered it back to me on time as promised. In short they saved me a lot of money, gave me an absolutely first class service, delivered far more than they promised and provided consistantly excellent communication throughout. I encourage anyone reading this to not hesitate but put their trust in this garage; they have more than earnt mine.
This was my first visit to Car Diagnostic Services Ltd for a whole clutch system replaced along with dual mass flywheel replacement including parts with & labour with 12 month warranty. The whole experience could not have been better. From booking in the car including pick up and delivery with peter who was brilliant. I was kept informed at all times of progress. I was made to feel like a real customer , not just a person who owned a BMW. The way I was treated was one of the best customer service experiences I have had in past 10 years of owning BMW motoring. Peter has clearly got the team working as one which makes you feel great about choosing Car Diagnostic Services Ltd to manage and deal with your car. Well done and thank you.
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.
