Very quick and easy to make an appointment. Good value too
It was the second time I have used Kam Servicing for my MOT and have used for other repairs too. The price is very competitive and the service is professional and reliable. I also appreciate that they call you by your name as you go in, which shows that they value their customers
Very good service thanks
Very polite, efficient service indeed.
Friendly helpful staff. My car passed the MOT and I didn't feel obligated to pay for extras. I plan to use this garage again in the future.
Very good, a long wait for a service and MOT. Charged extra for oil and “air in the oil pipes”. But overall I would use again.
Happy with the service. I had a servicing done and only needed a light bulb changed. The price was very competitive. Had my MOT done just after that and passed the test
brilliant from start to finish but there was another electrical problem stopping the AC working.
Perfect service. Thanks
Work was done fast and the price wasn’t just as stated
Work was completed in the time set out by the company and the customer service was spot on.
Just what I asked for
Great service, car was ready to collect the same day I dropped it in.
Will definitely be using again in the future
Fast , was using it first time but looks pretty reliable. Will come back if needed.
Spot on, nice friendly staff, knew what they were doing and took no time at all.
Excellent friendly service, called to book my car in and Simon, said he could fit me in the following day, car was done and ready to collect in a couple of hours, will definitely be using them again, and recommending to friends and family
Fast, honest and friendly workmanship. Had a few more issues with the breaks than I initially thought but was phoned and told about these straight away and the price I was given was more then reasonable. Would definitly recommend and use again myself.
Good place to go well recommend it
Work completed within an hour and a half and at the price quoted
People good service good price good
Had cam belt kit & water pump fitted which was the cheapest quote. They did a free 20 point car check, couple of things were advised & all jobs done on the same day with no extra labour charge. Staff were friendly & genuine. Prices were competitive, offered me several much needed coffee. Highly recommended
Very quick and efficient puncture repair. I wasn’t in and out in about 15 minutes. The only thing I wasn’t sure about was when I called up I was told one price, but the price on here was less. I booked in at this price, but feel I would’ve been charged the higher price if I didn’t. Not sure whether there was any difference in the service.
Kam Servicing initially agreed an appointment that was in approx 36 hours. Due to towing they were flexible on the arrival time and agreed to accommodate an earlier time. They rang within 3 hours with a diagnosis of the problem and car was ready to go the next day. The provided a full explanation of the problem and the parts and labour to resolve the issue.
These guys are just perfection. Amazing customer service, they do all they can to help and over the years Kam Services have fixed all my cars. Thanks Chaps
Great Garage! After speaking to them on the phone my car was being sorted within half hour! They gave me a car to go back home in while mine was being fixed! Would highly recommend these!!
Car was fixed quickly, even got a courtesy car, satisfied with service.
Wonderful service, fitted me in straight away and excellent communication
Great people and got the work done quick, will look after the customer, would recommend them 100%
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.
