These guys are great! We’ve used this garage a few times in the last few months and they go above and beyond every time. Would definitely recommend!
Cant recommend these guys highly enough. I had a quote from a well known chain of garages that was £275 for front pads and disks following a free brake check. Massive saving going with Auto Solutions EK and they had the job done in 45 mins before I went to work this morning. Professional service from start to finish. Thanks guys.
Delighted with the work carried out by Drew and his team at Auto Solutions EK. My car required a new clutch and was urgently needed for travelling to work. By far the best price I received which also included collecting my car and returning it to my home. I received regular updates regarding time of collection and return of my car. My car is running perfectly again. Overall I couldn't ask or expect any more. My car is due its MOT in the near future and I shall be using Auto Solutions EK. Thanks Guys!!
Very satisfied with the price and the work that was done on my car.
Car booked in for front and rear discs/pads, very reasonable cost and all sorted fairly quickly aswell! Would definitely recommend this garage - good service, quick and a competitive price for all work undertaken. Thanks
Patrick is the best person I have met, Very professional, extremely quick to fix the clutch. Now the little Yaris is like new. I would strongly recommend this shop to everyone.
Patrick came by promptly to replace my rear brake pads and discs first thing in the morning and had my car back by 12pm. The price was great and service was fantastic. Will be doing my MOT in mid January with these people, very reliable people.
very friendly and reliable service, very honest and upfront
Patrick the owner was extremely helpful and explained why I needed new break discs as MERCEDES had informed me. 1 min walk from the garage was a large Tesco with an intergrated Costa. I waited here whilst the work was carried out as the garage has no waiting room. The work took only 1 hr which was amazing. Patrick then explained to me that the new breaks will take a few hundred miles to wear in. The price was excellent for this job, but I have to admit the service was even better. Will definitely recommend to friends and family.
Patrick collected mum’s car which was not running and fixed what the AA had said was wrong with the car. He advised us every step of the way, updating us and keeping us informed at all times on progress and further problems with the car which were caused by mum’s break down. The final price was for lots of work: new cam belt, new valves, head gasket, head bolts, timing belt kit, water pump, oil & filter and cylinder head. Patrick is a very amenable and honest man, only doing what was needed to the car as he came across problems. Mum’s in her 70’s and her car is her lifeline and we’re all completely satisfied with Patrick’s work, he even returned the car to mum and took her through everything helping her to feel confident that the car was ok to drive again. His communication, honesty and attention to detail is a refreshing change! BIG THANKS TO PATRICK AND HIS TEAM
I can only endorse the 5/5 feedback that Fabio has previously received. I made contact with regards to the replacement of cam belt assembly for my Audi TT. Fabio responded very quickly with a very competitive estimate. On the day, he arrived on time, carried out the work effectively, was more than happy that I watched (only out of pure interest) explaining to me what he was doing at various times. Once completed, he completely tided the area. We will certainly be contacting Fabio when our cars require routine servicing and/or other work and wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to others.
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.
Great, friendly, professional service. Only took an hour or so to sort the problem and the final price was even just a touch under the quote. Would recommend.
Nice guy, convient as did at my house as couldnt get out. Honest and told me I didnt need new discs. Did a good job at a good price, will be using again.
Trading as Motortech Mobile Mechanic, Fabio can trusted to carry out the work & is very efficient at both quotes & when working on the job. Delighted to have found somebody like Fabio and he really does deserve 5 stars. Competitive pricing too.
They were great
I needed my clutch replacing, and was given a very competitive price for this. I took the car to the garage aware that the flywheel may need to be replaced. This was the case. The mechanic kept the damaged flywheel to show why it needed replacing. The service was efficient, priced competitively, and the receptionists were brilliant. I have a 12 month warranty on the work that was completed, and am very happy to recommend this garage.
Excellent service and excellent price. Used twice now. Not local to me but worth the bit of traveling.
Had new shocks fitted great job friendly service great price what more can you ask thanks guys will recommend
Brilliant service and stat done..warm car again..thanks guys.
Price was as said, friendly staff great service
Pool Street did an exceptional job, they picked the car up and dropped it back at a time that suited me, they were very friendly and professional, the price they quoted was the price I paid. I intend to use them again and would highly recommend them
very good job
Friendly staff.help out with the price.not the usual garage that try to make money of you..I’m very glad I did take my car to them.only negative thing(if i can call it so) is that they took a while to get my car running
Received quote on a Sunday Evening. Collexted car Monday am, returned the car Monday pm. Repaired. Fantastic service. Thank you guys.
Detailed work carried. I was observing and they top level work. Had all fluids, V belt, greakbox oil all dics and pads changed at a very good price. Will certainly recommend them to others.
Aldmere garage gave excellent service when fixing my car, I found them to be a helpful and reputable company. I would give them a 5star rating.
Excellent job £175 cheaper then my usual garage will be going there again and will highly recommend thanks
Had my egr and cooler replaced with one I supplied to the garage. They did this no problem and rang me to tell me it was done. Communication before the job was second to none every question I asked was answered timely and helpfully. I still have some problems with my van so will be returning it to this garage for their help to hopefully sort it out. Overall very helpful very quick and very tidy service. Thank you. Highly recommended.
Ross who dealt with my problem was very profestional and fix the problem with ease also kept me informed on progress which you very rarely see in garages nowadays. I would very highly recommend them
Most helpfull garage i have ever been to. They know what they are doing and what they are talking about. Explain everything to you so you understand any problems or work they have done.
Great Service, really pleased would recommend and will use again.....Many thanks
The cost of a EGR Valve can vary depending on your car due to differences in labour time and parts needed. Take a look below at the average quote on WhoCanFixMyCar.com for some of the top car makes.

ERG stands for Exhaust Gas Recirculation and it is a function performed within the combustion engine of a car. The measure is sophisticated in the manner in which it is carried out as exhaust gasses are recirculated back into the inlet manifold to be used for combustion again.
The reason that ERG takes place is to reduce the production of oxides of nitrogen which is harmful to breathe in and is damaging to the environment.
The impact of exhaust gas being recirculated is a drop in engine performance and fuel economy. Diesel cars are also subject to an increase in the production of soot and harmful particulates. However, new engines are able to utilise a variety of clever electronic control strategies to reduce the impact of using an EGR system.
At the heart of the ERG system is the ERG valve, a part which has evolved over time to be more efficient and effective. For example, the part used to be pneumatically operated which limited it to only an 'open' or 'close' setting, however, the ECU (Engine Control Unit) is used to allow continuous levels of adjustability in new models.
A ERG valve has to be highly robust as exhaust fumes travel through at extremely high temperatures and velocity. There is also a high volume of soot and particulate matter carried by the fumes and as it has not passed through the DPF, it can build-up in the ERG system, causing problems.
When there is a build-up of soot and particulate matter, the EGR valve can become stuck open or closed as the substance can become tar like. A blocked EGR valve could be the cause of the engine light in your car switching on as the engine emissions system will not be performing properly.
Wiring and pneumatics could be the root cause of ERG problems as the communication between the ERG valve and ECU may be compromised.
This can be a difficult problem to diagnose as the ERG valve is not the most common cause of the engine warning light coming on and mechanics may not decide to look at the part until after checking more obvious potential causes.
However, using an intelligent diagnostic tool which connects directly to the ECU in your car, a mechanic may be able to see the problem immediately.
However, the ECU will only be able to tell if there is an ERG problem if there is a total failure. It will not be able to detect degradation.
If the ERG valve is stuck open, your car will suffer from a rough idle and a drop in engine performance as well as a decrease in fuel economy.
If the ERG valve is jammed shut, there may be an increase in the temperature within the cylinder which may lead to engine knocking. Fortunately, modern cars are fitted with knock sensors which will enable the car to adapt accordingly.
If your car needs to have its EGR valve removed, you will have to pay for a new part and the labour time of the mechanic. Fortunately, this is not the most complex of repairs as the part is not usually buried too deeply within a car engine.
However, the only way to know how much an ERG valve replacement will cost on your specific car is by getting a range of quotes from the best local mechanics.
