Friendly, did job on time and cheaper than competitor's.
Very professional and accommodating, would definitely use them again
The service and assistance given by this garage was second to none and the price for that was as good as it was expected to be. Nothing is too much trouble. Top notch.
lets just give some hand claps had a reply within 15mins of sending the quote, he then phoned me i explained to him the problem. within a day guys the job was done and was able to drive to work the next day. the guys are great and was reassuring that my car would be fixed by today so that right there was enough! i will be back again, you dont get service and genuine honestly like you do here
Excellent service and job done quickly ! A++
Great garage. I knew my car needed work so booked it in for a spring replacement after a dodgy pot hole broke it. My usual garage was full so I found this garage using this website.. ten times better than my usual garage! They found a few other jobs that needed doing and repaired at a very good price and checked everything over with me. They found jobs my garage had advised did not need doing which could have wrecked my car in the long run! Great staff who know what they're doing and fix the problems at a great price and are very fair.. have had 3 other jobs fixed by them afterwards and will use them always in the future. Thanks
Found the fault and fix the problem in less than 30 mins when other garages havent had a clue what the problem was. Many thanks. Highly recommended.
Great garage, would definitely use again..

They were great
Car dropped off and back same day. Couldn’t have asked for a better service.
Car running back to its best. I knew about a suspension problem when took car in for full service and MOT. Explained to Ryan and it was diagnosed and fixed same day (broken suspension arm). My second time of using the garage and will continue to do so , many thanks.
Would recommend. Price a little higher than quoted but additional work was completed. All work completed for a reasonable price. Good communication from garage throughout the day.
This was the first time using MOTease r us, and we didn’t regret it. Nadim was very professional, and honest. We had and MOT, service and part fitted. The work undertaken was clearly explained. We were shown the replacement part, and all work was undertaken to the agreed fee. Great communications and would definitely recommend.
Very reliable mechanic. Good value for money. Recommended 100%
Excellent service even though the job took longer than anticipated..I was well impressed when they offered to pick my car up from Robins & Day & once my car was done they paid a taxi to take me to their garage so I could collect my car.. Thanks Paul & Robert very much appreciated.
Excellent service and very nice chaps! Came and picked the van up and bought it back - did the job as requested and price was as quoted. Job done. Thank you so much,

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.
