Charged me an extra 20 for work I never agreed to was there only flaw still a better price then most other garages pick up and drop off same day good communication problem free so far thanks
Really friendly, even got me in a day earlier and finished the job promptly. Gave me a courtesy car which I think is great because I didn't live close by.
Really happy to have found this little garage on whocanfixmycar.com. Booked in for service, a little nervous going to a new garage but they were great, advised I needed new tyres and quoted for them, so I will be going back and definitely recommend these guys.

Best price for the work needed and also managed to get a few other bits done at a good price. Quick and hard working.
I can highly recommend this garage, Patrick was extremely pleasant, efficient and helpful all with a reasonable price. They are extremely reliable with all aspects and keeping us informed all the way through the job. Will use again in the future and highly recommend them to anyone who needs a garage.

Amazing service....this will now be my go to garage.....would highly recommend!!!
Nine months ago I gave up 15 years of Honda ownership and bought a 2010 SEAT Ibiza. This was now due for its 80K service so I was looking for a garage that would do a good job a bit cheaper than SEAT's authorised service stations. I was given a link to WhoCanFixMyCar and used this to find garages in my area. Even though they are not that local to me, I chose ACS "in the dark" as they had an impressive number of good reviews, particularly an enthusiastic one in March by another SEAT owner, Maria; I was not disappointed. My car was booked for full service and MOT and Patrick was very prompt with messages and texts (even up to midnight) about this and subsequently the needed extra work to be done (replace brakes and tyres) - which was not at all unexpected in view of previous MOT advisories - and also the dreaded timing chain replacement as this had become very noisy. He was very helpful with guidance on what to be done now and what could be left until a bit later. However, as my car was with him for several days I did feel that later communications were somewhat infrequent, leaving me uncertain as to when I would get my car back. (I'd deduct a 1/2 point for this). This niggle apart, ACS were not the cheapest, but were reasonably priced (less than SEAT's prices) and gave me a feeling of confidence that the work would be done "to bring the car back to where it should be" to use Patrick's words. They collected and returned the car for me, and now that I have had the opportunity to drive it for about 200 miles, it feels good! I hadn't realised just how noisy the worn timing chain had been; the brakes (although I am still bedding them in) are now smooth and powerful, and the new tyres (Patrick's choice) seem much quieter than my old ones. It all feels like a new car. I'll be using ACS for again for further jobs - there are still some of those advisories to be completed!
Second time I've used Automotive Components Specialists and yet again they were great. Quote was for an MOT and service and all I was charged was the quoted price. They had every chance to add a few 'extras' in there to bump up the price but they didn't, both times I've used them they've been utterly fair. Someone picked up my car in the morning and it was delivered back with everything done that evening. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.
Excellent service they were welcoming and nothing seemed a problem. I was quoted £350 for a clutch replacement but they checked the car first and only needed filters replaced so they did a full service also. Great lads, great service thank you I will be using you again.
Fast, friendly , professional would use them again
Great service and job done promptly and on time. Thanks.
Brilliant price and service. Clutch replaced in one day
Malik is an honest and helpful person. Work was done upto professional standard. I would highly recommend Awan auto tec.
Lovely and helpful guy, actually took the time to tell me what was wrong even though I don't understand engines, felt like I finally had a mechanic who wasn't just out for what money they can get, I am going to use these guys for ongoing work with the car, thanks again guys it's very appreciated. Lovely lady on the phones too very helpful and friendly
Friendly and professional staff, good price, job was completed within time and to a very good standard
Patrick was calm & reassuring throughout the process of my van being fixed. He was descriptive & professional. Thank you!

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.
