Fabio was great. Fantastic communication turned up on time and completed the job in an hour, clearly knows his stuff and extremely friendly. Would highly recommend and will be using again on the future. Thanks Fabio!
Fabio was Very professional and honest, done a great job and even managed to adjust a bearing for me instead of replacing it which saved me quite a bit of money. 100% recommend and will use again!
Fabio has just left after getting my air con gassed on my drive. No hassle. No garage. All done without me having to go anywhere. Great service and very pleasant chap. Thank you.
Andrew changed spark plugs and coils on my jaguar 2.5 X Type inlet manifold has to come off to get to them I supplied the parts and was very pleased with the price and labour charge would recommend highly
Price was only higher as he found it needed a new dual-mass flywheel as the clutch was down to the bare metal! But no pressure from Andrew, who offered to use the old one with the new clutch. Very helpful guy and would definitely recommend to anyone.
Good service, very polite and very amenable. Happy to answer any questions and does so with a high level of knowledge. Price was £30 higher than originally quoted but this work was carried out as an extra I asked for myself.
Excellent service again from AW autos. Highly recommend.
Very friendly and excellent service
An excellent well run garage, great communication, fast and friendly good honest garage. Would recommend. A1+ The garage even arranged collection of my broken down vehicle for me (obvious additional charge for this)
Really helpful staff who explained and showed what had gone wrong. Time to be taken was told 4 to 5 hours and received phone call after 4.
Received a very quick response with a quote which I thought was very competitive. Called following day to book and my car was fitted in for the next day . Very satisfied with the work and price and would be happy to recommend Autobahn and will look too use the garage again in the future.

Did the job, not very talkative when i picked car up but i guess they did what they charged me for.

Garage were good to communicate over this site. In person, I felt I may have been asking some silly questions. They did a fantastic job, did it very quickly and were very clear with any additional charges. I already had a pre-inspection report and I was surprised that they were completely honest with what needed to be done. Very rare feat among garages nowadays. Will definitely be my new go-to garage.
Paid the exact amount quoted and was done within the time given. Very friendly and helpful. Fully recommend

Big Thankyou to Fabio, replaced Cambelt on our Fiesta today, arrived as agreed and completed the work in a matter of hours. Very impressed with the service, which included changing the water pump and ancillary belt in the price quoted, unlike some other garages. All work completed at my home address. Fabio was also happy to discuss other issues I had with the car and suggested probable causes/solutions. Would definitely recommend Motortech, was also given a quote for a Full service on my Fiesta and will be using Motortech again in the future.

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.
