Get a great-value Air-Conditioning Recharge with Who Can Fix My Car.
I originally requested a diagnostic check as the car was making a slight whining noise on startup plus the battery was draining rapidly. Lloyd collected the car as he said he would. After an extensive diagnosis and much sweat and tears (mainly from me!) Lloyd finally found the source of the issue. I had the alternator and started motor replaced and the car now drives like a dream and not the nightmare that it had become. Admittedly the time the car spent with the garage was longer than I had anticipated BUT Lloyd always reassured me that my car was a priority. It became a personal crusade for him to pinpoint the issue whilst keeping the charge for his time to a minimum. Overall the service provided was excellent. Lloyd kept in contact throughout and always offered an alternative option to keep the cost as low as possible. I highly recommend Porsche Dynamics and would not hesitate to use for my future servicing.
Lloyd, was really good and efficient and did the work outside my house in about 20/30 mins. I had an electrical problem with my boot not working and sending the ECU a bit mad, so Lloyd fixed the wiring and had it back to normal. Other places had quoted me double the price! I will be using Lloyd for all of my car troubles from now on.
Speedy, honest, legit. Knows his stuff and openly shared diagnostic results and options to resolve.
Great, Great guy. highly knowledgeable and completed everything to my satisfaction. Not a cowboy mechanics. highly recommended and will go back for repeat business.

Excellent knowledge /experience combined with a nice person at a reasonable price. I highly recommend Steve, but not too much because I will be using him again and I need to book him in!
I will highly recommend Gates of Harlow, due to the simple fact that I left my car on Thursday afternoon, got a call couple of hours later with a full diagnostic details, accepted the offer, all the work done on Friday and collected the fully repaired car on Saturday morning. Prior to my visit to Gates of Harlow the car was subject to couple of unsuccessful checks in garages across Harlow which costed me week and half waiting in vain and zero results. Shelley White is a star. Great Thanks!
My experience was terrible. No booking systems for air con re-gas so was told to phone up just before I wanted to leave so they could save a space for me. I was told to come "at about 1pm" - I turned up at 1.11pm to find that they had given my slot to someone else and it would be another hour. Would not go back!!

The majority of modern cars have air conditioning fitted as standard as it is vital for making the ride in a car comfortable for passengers.
An air conditioning system works by using refrigerant gas to push air through several components in the aircon system and then into your car.
Whether its freezing cold or boiling hot, it’s your air conditioning which makes driving in such conditions bearable, so it’s important to look after the system!
Surprisingly, over 10% of air-con gas escapes through the system each year. This means that the power of the system drops significantly over time. However, your air conditioning will not be checked during an MOT or service which is why it’s important that you make an effort to have it checked specifically.
Car manufacturers recommend that cars should have their air con recharged (Regassed) every two years.
Even if your car is new it should be something that you have checked as your cars performance could be significantly affected.
This is because the engine will have to work harder to produce cold air if there is an issue with the air conditioning meaning more fuel will be required to make the system work.
If the system has not been recharged in two years, the drop in engine performance will be noticeable.
As soon as you realise a drop in the power of your air con you should take the vehicle in for repair. If there is an unpleasant smell being emitted, this is another sign that the air con needs looking at.
The job of recharging air conditioning is not complex and will not take long.
The mechanic will carry out a leaks check on the air con system before the repair work, to ensure the job can be carried out without causing damage to the car.
As soon as this is complete, the technician will be able to recharge the system.
The mechanic carrying out the work will first remove old refrigerant from your car as well as the current gas and lubricant.
They will then replace it with new gas and lubricants.
The job will also typically include an entire system clean out which is carried out to remove any bacterial build up.
This is often the reason for a strange or unpleasant smell being emitted from the air conditioning which is why it is important to have this job completed every two years.
The whole process should take around 45 minutes as there are no new parts required for install.
The air conditioning in your car should be noticeably improved after a regas if you haven’t had one for over two years.
If you want to ensure your air conditioning stays in tip top condition, make sure to use it regularly as this the compressor will stay lubricated.Finding a mechanic you can trust to do a good job and charge a fair price, is not always easy, which is why we simplified the process.
