Friendly, fast service, done while I waited, I am more than happy and would use these guys again.
The pick up and collection service was very good as I was kept informed, There was a slight problem with the service light not going off but the garage picked the car back up and sorted this. As a way off an apology they cleaned my car inside and out which I was very happy with. I would recommend this garage to my friends and family.
Excellent service. Called on the day of posting to discuss the work to be undertaken. They were able to see me that afternoon to carry the work out, which was convenient for me. Work was carried out quickly. Highly recommend.
Everything was brilliant
Patric is a great man he knows what he is doing plus he good at his word
Quote was very reasonable compared with the dealership I have been using. Patrick collected car, did job and called me when he was leaving to return it. All done , no hassle. Nice guy, will be giving him another job to do in the next 2 weeks, Well pleased up to now, would recommend
Patrick had been servicing my Audi R8 for three years now, and in this time he has provided me with consistent first-class customer care. My car (a 2008 V8) has had a number of common faults, including front shock absorber failure, a coolant leak and oil leaks. Using his contacts and expertise, Patrick has fixed all of these faults with OEM parts, at big discounts over what a main dealer would charge. The most recent repair involved replacing the sump tray, which had distorted due to heating/cooling and was leaking oil. This is a specialist job which an Audi dealer with have charged at least two to three times what I paid to repair. Patrick is always true to his word - a real gem in the unreliable world of motoring!
Patrick is a lovely gentleman, very trustworthy and honerable. Bless him!
Absolutely fantastic, recommend!
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.
Work done well and quickly. Also really pleasant people who really wanted to help
Very pleased with the service, found Mike very helpful.
Only managed to do half the job due to lack of the correct tools, then charged me 50% more than original price, even after I double checked that price wasn’t going to go up Won’t be using them again as I’ve now got get the job completed by a professional and competent garage
I had a problem with my car last night and Mike was in touch straight away with a reasonable quote. By 11am today the problem was resolved. I would highly recommend Autosolutions to all my friends and family. Great service and very honest people. Thanks again, Mike!
Very good service, friendly, quick and excellent price
Absolutely brilliant service from start to finish, could not fault any aspect. Only a small job but still very important to me. Friendly staff. Changed my wing mirror as asked and also then removed friction mark from other side of wing mirror for me, now looks as good as new. Would definitely recommend and will use again if and when I have a problem with my car. Thank you ever so much.
Another good job done by this garage with a competitive quote. Due to working in Birmingham centre I was able to take my car in at the end of the day and leave it overnight ready for fixing the next day. Garage kept in touch with work required and updated me when job was done. The job was finished as requested on time and seems fine. So I would recommend this garage again. They always respond quickly to messages when using the wcfmc site so nice and handy too.
Kris,the Workshop Manager was polite and Proffesional. Although I had an issue with the car after the Timing Belt had been replaced,Stevie, one of the Technicians, plugged in the Diagnostics Unit and came up with potential remedies. He found the cause and secured the remedy, so I could leave the Workshop with a problem free running car. I am happy to recommend this Garage.
Great prompt , friendly and professional
Awesome service, picked up work done and dropped off at my work, cheapest quote and paid over the phone highly recommended! ☺
Excellent service! Super quick and very helpful and really cheap!
Absolutely brilliant, did a great job
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
Best service i have received at a garage after 9 years of driving on my third car. I dropped my car off on saturday morning to be repaired, but due to a bolt snapping and an underestimated repair time (due to the unknown awkwardness of the part being replaced) it took longer than originally stated, but I was kept in the loop and given a hassle free courtsey car to get to work and back with. They even stayed late to allow me to drop it off and collect my car when repaired and showed me exactly what they did and why it took longer than estimated. Superb service, friendly staff, very fair price (considering the extra labour not being added for the bolt) and i could not recommend this garage enough.
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.
