Cant recommend these guys highly enough. I had a quote from a well known chain of garages that was £275 for front pads and disks following a free brake check. Massive saving going with Auto Solutions EK and they had the job done in 45 mins before I went to work this morning. Professional service from start to finish. Thanks guys.
Delighted with the work carried out by Drew and his team at Auto Solutions EK. My car required a new clutch and was urgently needed for travelling to work. By far the best price I received which also included collecting my car and returning it to my home. I received regular updates regarding time of collection and return of my car. My car is running perfectly again. Overall I couldn't ask or expect any more. My car is due its MOT in the near future and I shall be using Auto Solutions EK. Thanks Guys!!
Very satisfied with the price and the work that was done on my car.
Car booked in for front and rear discs/pads, very reasonable cost and all sorted fairly quickly aswell! Would definitely recommend this garage - good service, quick and a competitive price for all work undertaken. Thanks
Everything was good
Patrick is the best person I have met, Very professional, extremely quick to fix the clutch. Now the little Yaris is like new. I would strongly recommend this shop to everyone.
Patrick came by promptly to replace my rear brake pads and discs first thing in the morning and had my car back by 12pm. The price was great and service was fantastic. Will be doing my MOT in mid January with these people, very reliable people.
very friendly and reliable service, very honest and upfront
Patrick the owner was extremely helpful and explained why I needed new break discs as MERCEDES had informed me. 1 min walk from the garage was a large Tesco with an intergrated Costa. I waited here whilst the work was carried out as the garage has no waiting room. The work took only 1 hr which was amazing. Patrick then explained to me that the new breaks will take a few hundred miles to wear in. The price was excellent for this job, but I have to admit the service was even better. Will definitely recommend to friends and family.
Patrick collected mum’s car which was not running and fixed what the AA had said was wrong with the car. He advised us every step of the way, updating us and keeping us informed at all times on progress and further problems with the car which were caused by mum’s break down. The final price was for lots of work: new cam belt, new valves, head gasket, head bolts, timing belt kit, water pump, oil & filter and cylinder head. Patrick is a very amenable and honest man, only doing what was needed to the car as he came across problems. Mum’s in her 70’s and her car is her lifeline and we’re all completely satisfied with Patrick’s work, he even returned the car to mum and took her through everything helping her to feel confident that the car was ok to drive again. His communication, honesty and attention to detail is a refreshing change! BIG THANKS TO PATRICK AND HIS TEAM
I can only endorse the 5/5 feedback that Fabio has previously received. I made contact with regards to the replacement of cam belt assembly for my Audi TT. Fabio responded very quickly with a very competitive estimate. On the day, he arrived on time, carried out the work effectively, was more than happy that I watched (only out of pure interest) explaining to me what he was doing at various times. Once completed, he completely tided the area. We will certainly be contacting Fabio when our cars require routine servicing and/or other work and wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to others.
Big Thankyou to Fabio, replaced Cambelt on our Fiesta today, arrived as agreed and completed the work in a matter of hours. Very impressed with the service, which included changing the water pump and ancillary belt in the price quoted, unlike some other garages. All work completed at my home address. Fabio was also happy to discuss other issues I had with the car and suggested probable causes/solutions. Would definitely recommend Motortech, was also given a quote for a Full service on my Fiesta and will be using Motortech again in the future.
Great, friendly, professional service. Only took an hour or so to sort the problem and the final price was even just a touch under the quote. Would recommend.
Nice guy, convient as did at my house as couldnt get out. Honest and told me I didnt need new discs. Did a good job at a good price, will be using again.
Trading as Motortech Mobile Mechanic, Fabio can trusted to carry out the work & is very efficient at both quotes & when working on the job. Delighted to have found somebody like Fabio and he really does deserve 5 stars. Competitive pricing too.
Excellent service and excellent price. Used twice now. Not local to me but worth the bit of traveling.
Used autosolutions in the past, never any problems, always worth the travel time.
Great job done with excellent customer care attitude
Brilliant service and stat done..warm car again..thanks guys.
Price was as said, friendly staff great service
Pool Street did an exceptional job, they picked the car up and dropped it back at a time that suited me, they were very friendly and professional, the price they quoted was the price I paid. I intend to use them again and would highly recommend them
very good job
Great garage. Friendly and professional staff. Would highly recommend this garage. I will definitely be taking my car there again.
Everything was fine
They were really good
I was welcomed immediately by staff at reception who speedily had the diagnostic technician on hand waiting to fix a problem with the diagnostics on my RR Evoque. James reset all codes and restored the car so it performed to its original state. Would definitely recommend for cars with diagnostic problems and excellent value for money Michael Mckechnie.
Great friendly service. Will use garage for any future requirements.
Straightforward service and MOT ...friendly and helpful would recommend
Very good friendly and efficient service , happy with the work done and would recomend Sam and this garage again , will be using them again for future work that needs doing , the final price was higher than estimated but that included a front brake reline which Sam advised needed doind
Great job from Jay and the guys at MCR fixing my cmax, honest advice and reliable work. I would recommend to anyone who needs a decent mechanic who charges realistic prices. Thanks.
All Gears and Engines were absolutely first class; they did exactly what they said they would, when they would, and at a very good price. I’d recommend them to anyone. Than you for putting us on to them.
Put my gearbox problem with my Ford Focus Mk2 Diesel on WhoCanFixMyCar.com having found many local garages unwilling to deal with gearbox problems. Quite quickly there were 6 or so garages showing they would quote. Got a message from Douglas Cooke, a director of Revolution Vehicles of Basingstoke with an investigation price. By the following morning, no one else had quoted and one had dropped from the list. Contacted Revolution with a list of other work that I considered needed doing and they were concerned about the amount of work needed on the vehicle but offered best and worse case scenario. Car was collected quickly and efficiently and true to their word they kept me up to date with how the work was progressing and different options. In the end decision taken to replace clutch and Dual Mass Flywheel, upper and lower engine mounts, and fixed A/C that didn't work. Plus of course the repairs to the gearbox. At all times prices included final cost so including VAT. At only £65 + VAT for labour they are excellent value for the service they provide. Very clean workshop and a delight to see an E type Jag, as well as a Porsche 924 being worked on. My car was in good company. Revolution Vehicles were a revelation!

A Gearbox is the device used to increase and decrease torque, a twisting force which causes rotation, through the increase or reduction of speed. Ultimately, the Gearbox is used to change the speed of the vehicle.
If you are putting your car into a gear, only for it to slip out, it’s obvious you have a fault. A likely cause is that the gears themselves will be worn down.
You will have to have the parts replaced as a result of the damage as it will only get worse as time progresses.
It would also be wise to check your transmission fluid levels as the parts may have worn down as a result of low lubricants.
Like many of the issues listed on this guide, low levels of transmission fluid can be the reason for the problem.
If you are hearing more noise than usual from your car while it is neutral, then check the levels of fluid and try topping it up.
If this does not resolve the problem, then the most likely cause will be worn down gearbox parts.
As soon as you see ‘Service Engine Soon’ in yellow on your dashboard, that is exactly what you should do as it is an indicator that something is about to go wrong or already has.
There are a variety of sensors on different parts of your car including ones on the transmission. They are in place to detect specific signs of an issue developing such as vibrations or jerks which you may not be able to see, hear or feel.
Paying attention to the light could help you save money on a gearbox repair so make sure to do so!
A dragging clutch is caused when the flywheel and clutch fail to disengage which makes changing gears almost impossible.
This gearbox problem will likely be accompanied by a grinding noise being emitted every time you try to change gears.
Luckily a gearbox repair cost will not be extortionate if you are suffering from this problem.
If the clutch has too much slack in the pedal then the linkage between the clutch disk and the pedal wont be able to pull the two parts apart.
Therefore, the linkage simply needs to be tightened or replaced which isn't as expensive as other gearbox repairs.
If your car simply refuses to go into a specific gear it is worth checking the level of you fluid as this is a common issue, though can be resolved by topping the liquid up.
There are other potential issues that would prevent you being able to go into a specific gear.
Occasionally the computer which is part of your car can be the source of the problem, alternatively the shift cables could require adjusting.
A burning smell in a car is never a good sign and as soon as you notice it is vital that you call a mobile mechanic or break down assistance in order to diagnose the problem and find a solution.
When it comes to the gearbox, a burning smell can be the result of transmission fluid overheating.
If the fluid system fails, then other parts of the system will suffer as a result.
Transmission fluid acts as lubricant and a cooling agent for the moving parts of a transmission as they are in constant perpetual motion as a car is driven, this causes friction and a build-up of heat.
Therefore a lack of transmission fluid will be harmful to these parts and a burning smell will be emitted.
If you ignore the burning smell in your car then an entire transmission replacement is likely to be required.
A car should not grind or shake at all so do not think that its normal even if it is gradual and only minor.
If ignored the issue will get worse and you will end up incurring a higher gearbox repair cost.
Grinding and shaking is a common symptom of a faulty gearbox when you move from one gear to the next.
There may even be an issue with the clutch if you feel these effects after you change gears.
If so it is likely that your clutch will need replacing.
The gear synchronizers in your car may be also be badly damaged or worn down if you feel shaking or grinding.
The transmission system can only operate while automatic transmission fluid lubricates, cleans and conditions the seals while acting as hydraulic fluid.
Even if the transmission fluid is below normal levels, your car will suffer and if it all leaks, you will face serious problems.
Automatic transmission fluid (ATF) is bright red and, surprisingly, smells sweet (that is if everything is in working order).
If you detect a leak and the fluid fits this description then you are in luck, all that you require is a hole to be filled.
However, if you come across liquid which is dark and emits a burning smell then the issue is likely to be worse.
Typically this will require the entire transmission system to be flushed or changed as it has become contaminated and is no longer suitable for use in the engine.
ATF liquid is different to motor oil as the engine doesn’t consume any of it, therefore, if it is below its normal level, it’s a fact that you have a leak.
If you would like to check the fluid level, try to locate the transmission case (close to the fill plug) and perform a visual assessment.
Once more, if you have a leak, it is essential that you address the issue and find a clutch or gearbox specialist using WhoCanFixMyCar as we will be able to provide you with a range of quotes from local mechanics.
If you try to move into a certain gear and you feel resistance, or the gearstick keeps popping out, then there is definitely an issue.
There should not be any pushback when you go into gear and so if you even feel the slightest change you should take your car to a gearbox specialist or automatic gearbox specialist as soon as possible.
Typically, this is a problem involving the clutch as well so be prepared to replace it if you run into this type of issue.
It can be difficult to diagnose the extent of a gearbox problem which involves the clutch, so the best advice is to take your car into a clutch and gearbox specialist as mentioned above.
Hearing a strange noise from your car is probably the best way to know that something isn’t right.
There are a plethora of issues which could be causing a noise to come from your car engine and the gearbox is one system which could be causing a new sound.
The specific noise will vary greatly on the model of the car, part and specific issue so it is almost impossible to specifically identify an issue from a sound alone.
The biggest indicator that your gearbox has an issue will be if you hear a clunking noise when you shift gears which sound mechanical, abrupt and loud.
The same can be said of automatic gearboxes, if you notice a clunking noise as you accelerate, slow down or drive on an incline, it would be indicative of an issue with the transmission.
Even if the noise sounds severe, it may be a minor issue, however it will turn into a major one if you do not diagnose the transmission problem.
The gearbox repair cost will spiral if you neglect to address the problem.
Whether you need to replace an automatic gearbox or replace a manual gearbox, the price will vary from one garage to the next and the cost will also vary on the model of the car.
A reconditioned gearbox is a part which has been broken but has been fixed by a transmission expert. If you suffer from a gearbox problem, there is the worry about spending money on new parts, however, it is often possible to salvage engine parts and a reconditioned gearbox is ideal from those wanting to avoid spending money on expensive new parts.
Reconditioned gearbox prices vary depending on the car model however it is always worth shopping around for the best price.
