Service went fine good price as well. Only thing is there is a squealing noise coming from one of the belts. Not sure if its nothing to worry about as wasn't informed. I don't blame the garage for this. Just wish I knew what was causing it
Fast friendly service with a very reasonable price. Was made feel important customer and offered tea coffee. Would use in the future 5*
Excellent service. Good communications. Will be using again.
William was as true as his word. Price quoted was price I payed and he also addressed another little issue thrown in. Not to mention the fact they collected our car and returned same day. I will definitely be using their services again.
Excellent service from start to finish, felt comfortable being a woman motorist and everything explained clearly i definately found myself my new go to mechanic. Fitted a air con motor for me whilst fitting a cam belt and water pump , highly recommended!!
Superb service def reccomended
Done the job very quick
Absolutely fabulous garage!
brakes were done at the agreed price, half the price of the dealers. Friendly staff!
All good and still is ok
Car picked up and dropped off once the clutch was replaced. Nice and friendly and kept good communication while the job was carried out.
I arrived at the agreed time and 90 minutes later I drove off with new discs and pads on all four corners. Great guys and very pleasant. I will contact them again when myservice and MOT is due. Cannot praise them enough.
Brilliant very happy with service they picked up on time and got the job very quickly also got my door lock changed out while it was in getting a timing belt kit done, would recommend 5 stars :)
After speaking to Patrick yesterday he had my van picked up straight away and diagnosed within the hour. Finding a few things wrong he quoted a fair price and was professional throughout. My van was delivered back to me today and is now running better than it ever has. Thank you Patrick, extremely pleased with the service from start to finish! Will definitely be a returning customer.
Oh my word! Patrick is amazing and a life saver. He was calm, reassuring, helpful and sincere. I was going to continue looking for the cheapest option but after one phonecall with him - I was happy to proceed with the original quote. He told me what he would do - and he did it. He kept me updated and he took into consideration payment options, my location and urgency of my need..... an all round good bloke and the garage provided a great service. Very, very happy! ;-)
Very good, will use again.
Car running beautifully now. Professional & friendly. Included pick up & drop-off. very convenient. Will Recommend and will use them again.
Great same day service!
Excellent, efficient service
All serviced, quick and efficient.
They have done a good job
As usual car was collected and delivered with a very good job done on the car at a lower price than was quoted very pleased with this company and it’s employees
Gearbox, Clutch, Flywheel, 2 tyres, abs sensor and ring all needed replacing. Kaz and his lads not only go the extra mile to help, they are incredibly fast! (Most done in 48h from accepting quote!). I’d have no hesitation going back to Kaz for any work I needed doing.
Excellent mechanic. Really helpful and understanding who managed to do the job that all the other garages couldnt. Highly recomend.
I cannot thank Douglas and his team enough, finding a company who not only have the knowledge, understanding and expertise to complete a gearbox rebuild, they did it in less than 3 days and offered me a courtesy car whilst mine was with them. It is clear they are proud of their business, from initial engagement and discussions to the completion of work the communication was FANTASTIC. On arrival at the garage they showed me around the garage and I can honestly say I haven’t seen a cleaner well laid out garage. The mechanics were all friendly whilst a walked around and the other cars they were working on are certainly pride and joys for other customers who entrusted revolution vehicles to complete the work. They seem to enjoy and focus on resolving issues the best way rather than merely easiest. I was anticipating having to purchase a new gearbox for £4K from the dealer until revolution introducted themselves. Whilst completing the work they advised wear on the clutch which I had an idea may need replacing soon and gave me a good price to fit at the same time as dealing with the gearbox which will save me in the long term. I feel confident going forward that this will be my garage to go to for all my service and MOT work on my car. Very few businesses pride themselves as much in the professionalism and high work ethic, however I can certainly vouch for this business and already recommended them to friends and family. Thank you Douglas and colleagues for everything and I will see you in the near future for my further motoring needs
Good communication during the repair, I would recommend them
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.
