William was as true as his word. Price quoted was price I payed and he also addressed another little issue thrown in. Not to mention the fact they collected our car and returned same day. I will definitely be using their services again.
very good service
This is a great garage. Ur car is picked up fixed and returned 2 ur door no problems. The staff r great the service is too thanks guys job well done. Robert
Great friendly service. Waited in the garage for the car to be done and felt totally at ease. It needed a couple of extra things which were clearly explained to me and I was offered it if wanted these done there and then. Great garage and probably the first one I have felt comfortable taking my car to as a female. I will definitely be back
Team responded quickly to my car which wouldn't start (electric style fault) to get it collected and back to the garage for inspection. Even collected keys from my work. Fantastic!
Decent garage, picked up and and dropped off car. Undercover for engine now seems to be hanging off but should be an easy fix for me to sort myself if I find a high enough kerb to get one of the sides of the car up on. Guys were good and wouldn't hesitate to use them again.
Superb level of Service
Happy with job done
Garage done a good job, however, I had to phone them to see if my car was ready and once there to collect they didn’t really speak to me. The gentleman just asked for payment and I had to ask if there were any problems. Would use again.
Got a quote for rear break pads £59.00 and pads + discs £129.00. Needed both pads and discs replaced i new i would have needed them. Price was as quoted and great service my car was in and out within an hour. My regular garage was quoting £180.00 would definitely use again and recommend to anyone. First time user of who can fix my car i wish i had discover it years ago i would have saved 1000's. Thanks.
The job was completed efficiently and within the estimated time. Will use again without a doubt as I have recently started working in Bury and a near to local garage that gets the job done is essential. Would recommend Piston & Rotor.
Very helpful. Try to give me the best price what possible. Very happy with that garage! Will use it again!
Very helpful, quick turnaround
Absolutely brilliant! Very professional, polite, great communication and even noticed some other repairs that need attention, same day service, picked car up at 07:20 and had the car ready for pickup at 5pm I will be going back, highly recommend!!
Garage is ok.
Quick with regards to fixing my car and helpful on the phone. Driver was however 30minutes late when picking up and bring car back which did cause me issues with work.
Fab! same day service, excellent customer service.
Great service, fixed as stated and at price expected. Would recommend
I spoke to Patrick as I was in a pickle and I can’t thank him enough he solved every problem I had my car was stuck in a garage asking unreasonable prices. Patrick recovered the car solving that for me the same day as I spoke to him on the phone as I would of have had to call recovery otherwise. On the call he was open and honest about the work what was needed and when it would be done by he was knowledgable and kept all his promises about collecting the car and the price agreed on the phone and when it would be done by I recommend this garage and will be back if I need thanks again for all your help
Extremely fast and great service. They came and picked up my car the same day I chose them and dropped it off with a new clutch 2 days later. Customer service was exceptional, Patrick messaged me back straight away with any questions I had and was very helpful on the phone. Would definitely recommend and will be using them again in the future Thanks guys
Friendly, quick and helpful! Cant fault them.
Good professional and quick
Did exactly what they said they would do for the price quoted and within the time scale stated. Will definitely be using this garage from now on. They are friendly, approachable and professional in their customer service.
If your car has overheated or the engine and cooling system has had a fault, you need to find a local engine and cooling expert as soon as possible.
A car cannot operate proficiently with an engine and cooling problem. The radiator, lubricants, water, engine fans, water pump and many other components are responsible for keeping a car engine at the correct temperature.
There are a number of issues that could cause problems within the cooling and lubricating systems, leaks being the most obvious.
If engine coolant leaks out of your car via a hole somewhere in the system, the problem will manifest itself quickly as a warning light will flash up. The same problem can affect the lubrication system and engine oil can escape via a hole and cause problems for the entire car engine.
If the engine and cooling systems run into trouble, a myriad of engine parts will suffer as a result.
When a car engine operates, a huge amount of heat is generated through the process of combustion and motion between car parts.
Friction is the chief culprit as the rapid rubbing of metal generates heat. The function of engine oil is to lubricate the parts within the engine so a dangerous amount of friction, and therefore heat, never builds up and causes problems.
However, if there is not enough engine oil to keep everything cool, serious problems will arise and components will be at risk of damage which will cost you huge amounts of money!
There are innumerable problems which could arise and many of the following parts could be seriously damaged as a result of a problematic engine and cooling system.
To help you understand a little more about the parts that may be affected from overheating and what you should do if you need new car parts, read the full guide below.
Whether you need engine parts, car body parts or any kind of car parts near me, you need to understand what you are doing.
At WhoCanFixMyCar.com we recommend that you DO NOT buy your own car parts and take them to a garage for fitting.
The likelihood is that you will not purchase the correct part or the garage that you go to will refuse to fit the engine part. You will then be left with a hole in your pocket!
The world of car parts is big and confusing. There are a huge number of brands and types of car parts so unless you are a trained mechanic, it is not advisable to buy your own car parts.
WhoCanFixMyCar works with a number of parts manufacturers and suppliers who sell directly to garages throughout the UK. Only trained mechanics know the best option for cars when it comes to fitting car parts and engine parts.
When it comes to engine parts specifically, you cannot afford to take a guess and buy online.
You might be able to get close to the best tyre to fit but there is still a huge amount of disparity in between brands and the type of tyre you can fit.
So when it comes to engine parts, as an average driver, you have no chance of knowing!
To help you understand a little more about the different parts operating inside a car engine, we have created this simple guide so you can understand the function at the very least. You will therefore be able to understand what a mechanic means when they say they need to replace a certain part.
Engine cylinders sit at the core of the engine and they are responsible for pushing the pistons up and down to create energy and movement to move the car.
Cylinders are commonly arranged side by side in a bank or engine block. When it comes to engine parts, cylinders are buried deep inside the car and require lots of engines parts to be removed to get to them including the timing chain, pushrod head, rocker cover, rocker-shaft, rocker arms, cylinder head and lots of nuts and bolts.
Crankshafts are generally made from steel and sit below the cylinders and pistons in the engine block. Their job is to convert the vertical movement of the pistons into a rotation to be transferred through to the flywheel and then the transmission. The crankshaft has crank pins along its length that line up horizontally with the pistons above and form the ‘stepped’ orientation of the shaft itself.
Spark plugs are responsible for igniting the air and fuel inside a car engine to create combustion. Spark plugs are critical parts of a car engine and they must fire at the right time in order for a car to start. It is common for spark plugs to fail and mechanics will regularly check if them if a car is failing to start.
Engine valves are responsible for the intake and release of air and exhaust fumes. Combustion is only possible when fuel and oxygen combines to ignite inside the engine. The valves close when the ignition happens as they compress the air to increase the pressure and strength of reaction as a result.
A piston is a cylindrical piece of metal that moves up and down the cylinder. The engine parts are subject to wear and tear just like any other engine part and may need to be replaced after a few years.
Piston rings provide a sliding seal between the outer edge of the piston and the inner edge of the cylinder. The rings serve two purposes:
They prevent the fuel/air mixture and exhaust in the combustion chamber from leaking into the sump during compression and combustion.
They keep oil in the sump from leaking into the combustion area, where it would be burned and lost.
Most cars that "burn oil" and have to have a quart added every 1,000 miles are burning it because the engine is old and the rings no longer seal things properly.
There are a lot of other parts in the engine which a car cannot function without, modern cars are usually fitted with turbo chargers and on-board computers called ECU’s. There are also a huge number of sensors fitted to most of the engine parts in order to feed information on engine performance back to the driver.
The cooling system and lubrication system are also critical for successful engine performance.
Finding a mechanic you can trust to do a good job and charge a fair price, is not always easy which is why we have simplified the process.
We work with a network of over 13,567 mechanics and garages across the UK so we can find the right workshop to fit engine parts.
