Great service will recommend to anyone with gearbox trouble Five stars from me
My go to garage! After discovering the engine management warning light had come on last Sunday evening, I was contacted by Patrick within an hour. He offered to come and collect my car on the Tuesday morning and quoted me a very reasonable price to run a diagnostic. I was kept up to date on the day as to what was wrong with the engine, what needed to be replaced and how much it would cost. My car was returned by 4pm the same day, all fixed and running as should be. Amazing service from Patrick and the team!
I can highly recommend this garage, Patrick was extremely pleasant, efficient and helpful all with a reasonable price. They are extremely reliable with all aspects and keeping us informed all the way through the job. Will use again in the future and highly recommend them to anyone who needs a garage.

My new car was doored by a reckless moped rider and decided not to go through insurance to get it repaired. Other garages were giving me high quotes and long wait times. I called Ade Auto Repairs and they were able to see me the next day. Upon seeing the main damage and other scratches on my car, said it would take 2 days and I would not notice any damage once they have worked on it. I agreed and 2 days later I went to pick up my car and it looked as good as new, Thanks Ade Auto for a great job, and a friendly and efficient service. Highly recommended.
Very good service.
Everything went smoothly from the moment contact was made, price agreed to job done.
What a lovely company to deal with. Made contact after lunch yesterday. Quoted very quickly and picked up my car within the hour. Work carried out promptly and was completed last night. Ended a small sensor replaced too and they simply charged me the cost and no extra labour. Would recommend these people. Give them a try. Only issue is they don’t yet take card payment.
great thank you
Complimentary collection was great..was even offered a courtesy vehicle to use..kept informed throughout..vehicle dropped of in time..only thing I suggest is thay they implement some online payment portal to make life easier as i struggled to take out cash at an atm due to limit
Ross Motors was great, I would highly recommend them. I needed a new tire and they did all the work, replacing the spare and all. All I had to do was drive down to get the new tire fitted the next day which took less than 10 minutes.
Ross Motors were brilliant, I would highly recommend them. They were efficient, quick, adaptable and worked outside of working hours. Very useful and good value.
Great, came and fixed the issue and advised if it returns to take it to a garage to have it fixed again.
Exceeded expectations. Honest and authentic specialist mechanic. Customer service 9/10/

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.
