Fantastic Garage , Constant communication and stress free putting me at ease over Christmas, Clutch replacement done, Car picked up, repaired and return withing 24 Hours. Couldn't recommend more
Not the cheapest quote but based on past service happy to use this independent garage again. Patrick kindly picked up the car from my home and delivered back within a few hours having completed the job with high quality parts.
Prompt service and turn around, recommended.
I had issue with my Audi A6 dual mass flywheel 12 plate. Patrick is very knowledgeable mechanic, he spoke to me over the phone on Friday and was ready to fix the problem very next day on saturday, he collected my car in the morning at 8am and fixed my car at 4pm the same day he then drove back to me with my car, explained to what work he had done and interestingly recorded the video while carrying out the work. he had wireless card payment machine so was easy to pay him. pleased with everything and big thanks to Patrick
A friend of mine ended up repairing my car for me, but these guys have amazing customer service, couldn't have helped me more, will be using in the future!
Had to get my Cambelt and Water Pump replaced. Had my fair share of doubts at first as the price was a lot cheaper than other garages, but the work done was second to none and also at a very reasonable price. Lovely people and service, would defo return!
Got my wheel bearing fixed great price! No problems would 100% use again.
Very excellent service, highly recommended, wish they were slightly nearer.
Swift and easy booking process, car was ready 4 hour later with only additional costs being one bulb and some wiper blades. Thank you.
These guys are great! Wouldn’t go anywhere else
The result achieved.
Extremely helpful quick and reasonably priced Thank you Chris
Collected and returned my car, very good service
Great Service. Thank you guys. We will use you again.
Good service only problem the garage is out of the way but i would recommend it
Collected my car as arranged, they carried out repair and returned my car, very polite and courteous. The bill was as the estimated quote. Very pleased with the service.
A great garage doing complex work. They changed my timing chain on a skoda Fabia 1.2 tsi, other garages I tried wouldn’t touch this job. The service was great, they a pleasant and even delivered my car back when Icouldnt get to them. Highly recommend.
Did job well. Cambelt and waterpump. On saturday. Thanks
He was very happy to help , he answear all my question
SMS were very good they carried out a diagnostic test which indicated that the EGR pipe was not faulty and did not need replacing, they did not charge me for doing the test first class and honest people thank you
A good & honest local garage. The best price I found for a workshop repair/service. Work was done (along with with another job I requested) all in one one visit using genuine parts. i would recommend Tops and will use again. The only reason I did not leave 5 stars was because I didn't actually drop off or collect the car so haven't experienced the full set up!
Good garage, but need more staff, one guy trying to do the jobs that come in, so I had 2days with no car, and just mentioned to be one day
Had egr valve replaced on my audi a3. Due to unforseen circumstances the bill did go up, not on jags part as a bolt was snapped. But jag had this rethreaded and back on, albeit he had to come again on another day to complete. These boys work hard and they managed to get this labour intensive job done
The cost of an EGR Valve repair on average costs between £300 and £400 but will 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.
