Great all round. From initial quote, communication, doing the work and at the price quoted the garage were really helpful and genuine. Even washed my car when I went to pick it up. Will definitely be using this place for all future repairs and services etc.
Excellent service friendly helpful staff. Very competitive prices. My work cost me half the price quoted by kwikfit. Would highly recommend this company
The purpose of visiting Qwiklube was primarily to get their assessment of what was needed to be done about the loss of power and turbo issues. However as there was also an issue with my front o/s tyre, they were able to sort that during the same visit (Cost = £18). I would rate their service as a 5 based on this experience – Stephen/Steven was very polite, straightforward and customer focussed. I arrived 30 mins later than planned bec of the tyre issue and that didn’t appear to present a problem. I was provided with a cost for replacing the turbo with an ‘aftermarket’ refurbished unit including some consumables e.g. oil – I also got a cost for a service (the car is indicating this is due in 2000 miles time). All in all a good experience.
The guy was so nice and helpful and done the job as quick as he could. He even triple checked to make sure my car was going to pass it’s MOT. couldn’t be happier with the results
What a great garage! I was in a minor accident where my car was hit, dented and paint came off. He not only took the dents out and painted the wing like asked - but he also fixed the fog light, fixed my head light and painted other scratches on the car as the paint was already out for the £200 price! What an amazing service and a bargain! Definitely be back again if I need my car fixed (hopefully not haha!) :)
Can’t praise this guy enough!! Fixed my car at half the price I’d been quoted and did it all within one week. He gave me a lift when I needed to get back to work and also gave my car a free wash!! The best thing about this garage is that I was shown everything that was wrong and it was all explained to me right from the start, no surprises. Shahan was so communicative, honest & helpful!! I would definitely recommend e-vehicles. THANK YOU.
Really can't fault E-Vehicles' work on my car to take out a dent and some scuffs on my wheelarch, and treat some fairly deep gouges in my rear passenger door. Despite other bodyshops saying I needed a new wing, and to take the door right back to an unpainted state with some ridiculous quotes, Shahan at E-Vehicles did the job at a fraction of the costs I had been quoted. The wing didn't need replaced, it just needed a panel beater who knew what they were doing. Although my car wasn't ready to drive away when I turned up to collect, the wait was well worth it as Shahan and his team were busy polishing out every little chip and scratch they could find. They even gave the car a mini-valet before returning the car to me in what I can only describe as showroom condition. The dent had been taken out completely, and anyone would struggle to see where there was one before. Same with the door gouges. All traces removed and paintwork perfectly blended to match. Really superb workmanship, and I'm very happy with the results given the relatively small outlay compared to what I'd been quoted elsewhere.
The garage came and collected my car free of charge. He was very helpful and friendly. I had holes in my front wheel arches.He filled the holes rubbed them down and painted them.and made a first class job. I would recommend this garage to anybody who wanted a first class job done on there car. Gets my vote 10 out of 10.
brilliant service , fast repairs , polite team well done
Perfect. Got me in for Saturday morning at short notice and had my car back just after 10am. Fantastic service
A big thank you to the staff. I requested back brake pads on Tuesday 27th February. I received a call to say no pads required and my car was fine. As a single female who doesn't know much about cars ,they could have charged my for new pads and discs but due to there honesty I was no charge.. I will be using this garage for all future work on my car and recommend them for friendly, honest and courteous service.
Payed the quoted price - Job was done with no drama's - Would us again - been moths now and no issues
Job well done ,friendly and quick.
Friendly and quick service.
Thanks for fitting new parts to my exhaust. Staff are all very courteous and there was no problem with their workmanship. I would highly recommend this garage.
Great garage,very helpful, cars running great.
Great team. They found the issue with my car and gave me great advice. They recommend me going back to the garage I purchased the car from and never pushed me into having the car fixed there.
Very friendly garage, I visited their place to have a look at my gear box which seemed rough. They had a look and said it was fine and nothing to worry about.
Fantastic job done at a very fair price. Couldn't recommend Sean enough I put my car in on the Monday for gearbox repairs and had it back by the Wednesday with a few other faults fixed as well as a free valet and engine flush. Top mechanic you won't be disappointed.
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.
Auto gearbox repairs are so common as the parts naturally wear down over time due to the fact that a massive amount of friction is caused between parts when a car is driven.
There are a huge number of issues that could cause a gearbox to fail and that is why we have written this guide, to help you understand what is involved with gearbox repairs.
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.
