Great service, honest communication and competitive price. Well done to Svmcitt and the team. However, the final cost was £559 versus a quote of 362 by Whocanfixmycar. Issue is that there are a number of disc sizes and the quote default provides a smaller size than those in my car. Given the differential in price there has to be a more accurate method of estimation so that the customer can select the right garage and be aware of a more realistic cost. There is no issue with D&G as they worked hard to minimise the cost. Whocanfixmycar need to put in place a better system to help the customer. Over to you whocanfixmycar.
The price and service was very good.
Went in for MOT. Told me that there was a fault and therefore would fail. Did a diagnostic check for free and recommended places to fix electrical faults. Friendly place.
Prompt and professional service - took the car within the day and completed the work the following day. Found and corrected a fault which two other car repairers couldn’t find (one being a Skoda sales and service organisation). Final price included four new tyres which weren’t in the original quote.
Friendly and professional.
Craig was incredibly helpful from the first moment of contact - cheery, positive and flexible. Not only did he sort my wing mirror at the price he said he would, but cleaned the side of the car which had been damaged in the same incident, for no extra price. I would highly recommend Steins garage and the staff there for a friendly, professional and easy repair experience.
Couldn't be more pleased with the service from Steins Garage and dealing with Craig. Top class service and work done to my car. Very quick turnover! Would recommend to anyone who needs their car fixed
Cracking work. Craig was fantastic in his communication and made me fully aware of the work completed and the reasoning behind it. Needed a new caliper in the end which was unfortunate but the price came in under quote. So nice to find a garage that isn't trying to pull your pants down at any opportunity. I'll definitely be back. Thanks Craig and the team.
Great service, professional approach. Very satisfied. I will be back in the future.
Amazing service, they gave me good advice and fix my car for less than expected. The guys are very busy, no wonder why.
Great garange, shame it is gone now
Done quickly and to budget
Work carried out on time and charged what they quoted.
Although I was advised prior to booking that the cost was different from quote received it still cost extra. Overall experience though was very good. Service completed on time and car was washed and vacuumed.
Dealt with the MOT and service like professionals and talked me through what the car was needing work on after having been unfortunately neglected by me. Any issues that popped up after they were happy to have a look at for no additional charge!
Excellent friendly service. Stuart very helpful. Would definitely recommend this garage and would use it again.
Good service, honoured the quote on this website, would use again.
Staff were very friendly + helpful, couldn’t fault them will definitely use them again and I will most definitely recommend them.
Did what they said they would do and ready when I requested it
Brilliant, flexible and efficient. Pete is a lovely guy and was so easy to work with. So much easier than dropping the car to a garage, cannot be more convenient. I met Pete in town as I was going work, he done the job and dropped the keys off to me. Thanks again Pete.
Great job done and nice guy!
Car fixed less than 24hrs after contacting Pete and he done it within the hour, very impressed.
Pete couldn't fix my car due to ceased engine caused by water damage but he tried everything. Can't fault him - very polite, very helpful and very professional.
Excellent service, cane to my door as arranged and talked through everything he was doing. Friendly and easy going.
Paid £80 for such a good job welding my exhaust. Very quick response, thanks.
I must say I am pleasantly surprised by the level of service this garage provides. They replied to my request first thing in the morning. I left my car around 10am and by end of day they had fully replaced my rusty and broken exhaust with a new one. Quote is perfectly reasonable if you take into account the price of the parts and the work required. Very helpful and friendly. Will recommend to anyone. Thank you very much!
Excellent service. Did the work at the agreed time, really friendly and the work comes with a good warranty. Have used before and will use again
Pete was punctual and thorough. despite the job taking longer than expected he didn't try and increase the price. I would definitely use again.
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.
