Had a turbo fitted. Communication with Shaun was great. Was an issue the first time it was fitted due to a leaking oil feed pipe and Shaun was very quick to diagnose the issue and get it sorted without asking for more money! Very professional and reliable service, would definitely use again for any other mechanical work. Thanks Shaun
Very quick response. Extremely happy with the work and would definitely use again
Recommended - price was good and as quoted. Turned up when he said he would and offered excellent advice on various issues with the vehicle.
Replaced faulty water pump and gasket on Ford Focus Mk1 Zetec. Pressure test on cooling system. Replaced rocker cover gasket. Cleaned oil leaks around engine. Checked condition of cambelt. Shaun arrived as expected. He confirmed what needed to be done and confirmed the price of the work. He returned to perform the works. He worked in the rain and wind. He did a thorough and careful job. He used genuine Ford parts. He communicated with me in a friendly yet professional manner. I inspected his work and way of working which is a major advantage in having a mobile mechanic. I would recommend Shaun and would use him again.
Shaun, our mechanic, was very polite and thorough. Confirmed the problem, ordered, fetched and fitted the necessary part. He worked very hard and left everything very clean and tidy. Marvellous that he came to the house to do the job! Would definitely recommend WhoCanFixMyCar.com.

The cambelt is a rubber belt which controls the timing of a vehicle’s internal combustion engines. It is vital in the process of making the vehicle run smoothly as it also ensures the crankshaft and camshaft rotate in synchronisation.
A snapped cambelt is uncommon however tension issues are more widespread.
If the belt is too loose it will end up whipping around inside the engine which will cause a variety of knock on effects and if the belt is too tight it will put a strain on the bearings of the cogs it's fitted to.
A tight belt will cause a whining noise to be emitted from the engine so if you hear this sound make sure to book a repair as soon as possible. You shouldn’t wait until this happens though, as the damage caused by a faulty cambelt will end up costing you even more money in repairs.
As you will see in the FAQ section and video above, the cost of a cambelt repair can vary depending on the vehicle and garage. The biggest cost associated with this job type will be the labour itself.
This is because the parts are based deep within the engine and getting to them takes time. The components themselves won’t cost you a huge amount as they are not complex so don’t be surprised to see labour costs making up the biggest part of the bill.
Even if your cambelt doesn’t completely break its important to keep an eye on the component as per the instructions provided by your cars manufacturer, if you leave it for too long, the belt could snap and cause catastrophic engine failure.
The cambelt will need replacing at some point, usually around the 30,000 – 50,000 mile mark but make sure to consult the vehicles owner’s manual to double check as it may vary depending on the vehicle.
