The garage provided an excellent service. My only feedback to the WhoCanFixMyCar.com is that the compared prices mentioned in the portal should mention if it includes VAT, otherwise it could be misleading.
100% recommend this garage and would happily take my car there for all my repairs! They were extremely quick to respond to all messages and questions that I had to ask! They quoted me a brilliant price with excellent customer service! Honestly highly recommend!!
I was really happy with the service from start to finish. Juan was very quick at replying online and he was easy to speak to in person as well. I will definitely be using this garage again in the future.
Juan was really friendly and approachable. He was able to do the work quickly and efficiently and explained the work he had carried out. Will be going to him again in the future.
Great service, job was completed on time and to quoted price. Will be using TBD again and highly recommend them.
After looking around to have my timing belt replaced, i come across TBD, after reading the reviews i decided to take it there, they gave me a very good quote, and the work was guaranteed for a year, which gave me piece of mind, and did it within the time i needed my car back for work, if you're looking for a decent garage, with more than a fair price, genuine customer care, and top mechanic, this is the one, save yourself a lot of hassle, time, and money. you will be well looked after here, a straightforward professional service, thanks Juan, a nice guy too.
Craig was really helpful and went far and beyond the call of duty. The clutch went on mi 2006 mini on the Thursday night and he had quoted on Thursday night and collected the car on Friday morning and returned by Saturday Morning. Really impressed with the service and speed of the work. Price was £200 cheaper than my usual garage!
Excellent service. Price quoted was the price I paid. No hidden extras once the car was finished. I would recommend this garage.
Thus price was for mot aircon regas and service a tyre front bearings and bulbs and wiper blades I got a fast and spwwst service kept me up to date with calling me will definitely use this company in the future all staff I spoke to were polite
Very good service provided, more expensive due to brake pads, brake rotors and a rear exhaust box that had to be replaced, all of which I was aware would need replacing during the service.
24/7 Auto Repairs were the quickest to quote the job and the cheapest. To my surprise, they were able to book my daughter's car in for a clutch replacement early the next week and told me it would be ready the same day. I delivered the car to them the previous day so they had the car ready for the morning. By lunchtime on the booked day they had rang me to tell me all was done and the car was ready for collection. When I arrived to pick the car up, I was presented with the bill, exactly the price stated, no extras. Very pleased, great work, fast service, great value. I would defintely recommend them.
Very happy with the price and serves and speed it took highly recomend, THANKYOU.
Yes, Clear and concise. Car vacuumed and washed, smelly provided. + If needed video sent to show any repairs. Very good!
They were really good, came and picked up the car, great service.
Great service. Friendly staff. Front brake pads fitted quickly.
The job was done successfully, they explained why it needed dolng, they fitted me in quicker than other garages and £250 cheaper than other quotes I had received.
The price was the same as quoted, and the car was brought in and fixed all on the same day. Now it works really well again!
Really good service, reliable and honest. 5 stars
Great communication from start to finish. Clutch replaced and works great. Would use them again.
I received very good advice
They were very good and I'm happy with the service
I noticed two screws in my back tyre. I took my car to Formula One Autocentres for a puncture repair. It was explained to me over the phone that if both screws were in the same quarter a repair may not have been possible and I would need a new tyre. When I arrived and the tyre was looked at, it turns out that the screw could be removed without having to repair the tyre and they even re-balanced all the tyres for free. Will definitely be going to again.
24/7 auto repair provided a fantastic service. My car was in and out within one day of my first phone call to them. Well done guys!! Rare to have that kind of service these days. Would use and recommend any time.
An exhaust system has the primary function of guiding fumes away from a controlled combustion section of an engine. The exhaust system on a car is carefully designed so the fumes omitted from the engine can be safely transported away from passengers in the car.
The exhaust system is made up of a several parts, all of which could cause potential issues if damaged. Though you only see the tail pipe from the outside of the car, the exhaust system is a large system.
The exhaust ensures fumes are transported from the engine all the way to the tailpipe at the back of the car. The gas flows down from the engine to the flange and onto the catalytic converter, it then travels on to the muffler and resonance chamber before going to the resonator and finally out through the tailpipe.
All of these parts have distinctive functions with piping connecting them along the bottom of the car. Each section of the system has to be completely airtight and functioning properly to ensure the gases are released into the outside environment safely.
Because there are several components of the exhaust system and because it usually stretches the full length of the car, costs can vary.
Depending on the area, part and extent of the damage, you are likely to pay different prices. Some repairs may only consist of sealing a small leak whereas others may result in replacing entire pipes or elements.
If there is a leak in the exhaust system, there is a chance that engine performance will be negatively affected. This is due to the escape of pressure at the wrong point of the system.
It is essential that an exhaust system is not damaged as leakage could pose danger to those inside the vehicle. Hydrocarbons, carbon monoxide and nitrogen oxides could seep into a car if the exhaust is damaged. These gases are also extremely hot and would cause serious damage if they were to meet a passenger.
The piping in an exhaust system must be heat resistant due to the high temperatures of these compounds and if the exhausts integrity is compromised, anything close to the damaged area will be exposed to potential harm.
If your DPF is also blocked or not functioning properly, soot and particulate will escape from the system and cause damage to the environment and people in the surrounding area.
If there is an oil leak, there is only a very small chance that the problem is the exhaust system. This is due to the fact that engine oil doesn’t course through the exhaust like it does for a part like the head gasket.
However, if there is an oil leak, it may get into the combustion system and the result will be blue smoke coming from the exhaust.
A warning light will come on but it will not likely be the check engine light. This is because a problem with the exhaust will be detected specifically by oxygen sensors or the sensors in the DPF if your exhaust system is fitted with one.
A common symptom for a damaged exhaust is a loud roaring noise being emitted from your vehicle. This noise would indicate that you have a problem with the silencer part of the system. A common issue with silencers is corrosion by acidic moisture which is caused by a build-up of the damaging substance.
If a part of the system has cracked or a hole has appeared, you will be able to hear a hissing noise and a chugging sound could mean there is a blockage in the system. If the exhaust is leaking, the issue needs to be addressed immediately as the fumes are dangerous.
There is also a chance that the exhaust is leaking water, in which case, there is a crack or hole somewhere in the system as a possible result of a water leak from the head gasket.
If you hear the exhaust popping or rattling beneath your car it could mean that your exhaust has become misaligned and if you can hear a loud metallic vibration it usually means that something is hitting the exhaust pipe. It could also mean a clamp, mounting or support bracket exhaust is loose.
Hangers and brackets are essential for holding the system in place so if these parts become damaged there is a significant risk that the rest of the system will suffer damage as a result.
If you are able to get underneath your car, it is always the best way to check for signs of damage.
One of the most common issues associated with exhausts is rust build up, however this can often be a minor issue as some pealing of metal is not a huge issue.
If there is a build-up of rust on any part of the system, use a tool such as a screwdriver to see how strong the area feels, if the integrity is solid then the part won’t need replacing however if the metal feels weak when some pressure is applied, its time you get the part removed and a new one installed.
Black smoke coming from your exhaust means that your engine is burning more fuel than it should. This is often caused by a problem with your fuel injectors, air filter or fuel-pressure regulator. Alternatively, the fuel line could be clogged. Burning excessive fuel will have a noticeable effect on fuel economy meaning that you will be spending much more money getting from A-B.
If your exhaust in pumping out blue smoke, oil will have leaked into the engine and been burned in the system. This happens following the valve guide seals or piston rings wearing out and allowing engine oil into the combustion chamber. Engine oil is only meant for the lubrication of parts which are in constant contact with each other.
If engine oil is leaking into the combustion system, you need to have the issue addressed with an oil changeimmediately as low engine oil levels will be incredibly detrimental to your car.
If white smoke is coming from your exhaust, your car could be low on engine coolant from the result of a cracked or warped cylinder head, a cracked engine block or a head gasket failure from overheating.
If engine coolant gets anywhere near the combustion chamber, the liquid will be vaporised and converted into a white gas which is then pushed out through the tailpipe.
If the exhaust is smoking thick black, white or blue fumes, there is also an issue with the system as the exhaust should not be blowing this colour of smoke. To find out why your exhaust is blowing smoke use our dedicated guide.
Car exhaust repair is a service which can be priced at a variety of levels. This is due to the fact that there are a number of things which could go wrong.
