Great service, very quick and helpful. Would recommend.
Service was perfect, got my car picked up and I knew I had a lot of work to get done. It was done with no fuss and delivered back the next day. Highly recommend.
Helpful staff and returned car quickly
Really good company. Efficient, courteous, good price. How it should be with other garages but often isn't. Will definitely use again.
2nd time using the garage and very happy again, no issues at all can’t fault them! I will be continuing to use and recommend, thank you.
Jay and his colleagues certainly know their stuff. Garage itself neat and tidy (always a good sign) and very high levels of customer care and customer service. I was a little reluctant to use a garage I didn't know but I needn't have worried and I'll certainly use them again.
Very good service
Clutch went and they managed to fit us in short notice. Got it dropped off last thing and replacement was done next day. Good price and sorted quickly. Would recommend.
top class service nice people to deal with sent me updated photos and kept the old parts to show me they even did another little job for me and did'nt charge me would'nt hesitate to use them again.
I had previously used WhoCanFixMyCar and was initially a bit cautious about using a garage from the site again after a bad experience elsewhere. However, when I needed a new cambelt and began looking for ballpark quotes I came across Merseyside Car Repairs LTD. The reviews seemed almost universal in their praise of the garage (both on the site and elsewhere) so I decided to take a punt; I couldn’t be happier that I did! Jay and from the garage was great to deal with. He was really knowledgeable and provided an excellent level of service from the off. When I dropped the car off he asked how I was getting to work across the water. He then took the time to drive me to the ferry station. Once work began I was sent regular updates with photos of the progress. I chose to have the car serviced at the same time as it was an absolute bargain. In the end, the cost of the work even ended up being £50 cheaper than my original quote. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this garage and have already done so to friends.
Car picked up from home, job done, car brought back, no problems, guys were nice, thank you
I contacted the garage on Monday at 1 30 my car was picked up and Ricky said it would be ready Wednesday and first thing this morning he rang to say car was ready job done nearly 50% cheaper than some of the other quotes car runs better than before with no noises will use again thanks.
The initial estimate was based on a new gearbox, however, I decided to also get them to replace my Clutch at the same time. The job was completed very professionally and updates provided on progress. First rate job done and the car is running brilliantly.
Done as expected
Great service and goid machanic
Absolutely delighted with the first class service I received today. James and the team took my car in for an MOT which I urgently needed doing and it was back with me within a couple of hours. I found them professional, friendly and the over all price with repairs was fantastic. I would not hesitate to go there again. Thanks.

Brilliant service from the garage. Had me booked in for Saturday morning first thing. Left my car with them and had a call back an hour or so later to come and collect it. Even topped up my brake fluid and coolant which was really great of them to do. Would go back again if I have any more troubles.

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.
