Get a great-value Head Gasket Repair with Who Can Fix My Car.
Great service. Collected and delivered the same day. Went above and beyond to get my car back to me.
Disappointed a new auxiliary belt wasn't fitted, but I blame myself for not mentioning it , but a Gates belt was fitted as I asked
Good experience, nice guys, good work at reasonable price. Will use again.
Mot To expensive job
In the end I didn’t have the work carried out as Andy didn’t feel my discs and pads needed changing yet. Honest, straight up advice like this is much needed in the market. I will be returning to Andy when the work is needed for sure. His new place is spotless and reflects the kind of man he is - a credit to the mechanics of Brum. Thanks Andy, see you soon
This review is with reference to the website whocanfixmycar.com who gave me a very misleading quote and not the garage who i am very happy with my star rating for the garage is 4 stars as above because i highly recommend this garage but i do advise people to not take whocanfixmycar.com quote seriously before contacting the garage for a proper quote
After I called several popular garages none of them could solve my problem... this garage was the only one to help me. I had a problem with the rear air bags suspension on the BMW 5 series , they worked hard to find what the problem was and fix my car on the same day. Definitely go back there from now on ,very professional and they definitely know what they'r doing, decent prices aswell.
Very very genuine and professional guy.knows what he is doing and fallows principles.Highly recommended.
Absolutely amazing . so quick and efficient and good price! will definately be back here
Great service - came to collect the car and transported it to the garage. Updated us with prices and options and called when it was done. Helpful and friendly service and we'll be calling them direct next time anything breaks down.
Lovely receptionist, mechanic is very helpful and let's you know if there's anything else that needs repairing. Also managed to squeeze me in on the day i called and vechile was ready within the hour. Would highly recommend
great friendly service, quick turn around they did not keep the car all day rang me when is was finished unlike other garages i have used where i had to ring if they had finished with my car
Excellent service lovely friendly staff would definitely recommend
Booked for the next day. Work was done quick and professionally. Place could be tidier hence just 4 stars.
Great service and fully recommended
No frills and done within two hours. Will use again.
Amazing service, very competent mechanic (Michael), and a very helpful owner Adam. The work required for my car was quite technical but these guys went about it very nicely and got it done on time. I am going to be a regular customer now:)
Fixed my initial problem on car, they even collected it from my house as I was at work. Cost me around 30 pound, one problem was my car mats were covered in grime afterwards I don't mind the car exterior coming back dirty but the original mats are stained and I found a food box half eaten left in the rear passenger foot well. If you don't mind cleaning up food and grime stuck in your cream floor mats then this is the place to use.
Brilliant service picked my car up fromBbirmingham 8.30am kept for 2 days new clutch plus service great price. Did it 4 months ago waiting to see how it went no problem would recommend.
Had my clutch replaced on my Cleo here a few weeks back now and couldn't really fault their customer service. Original quote was £260 which I was very sceptical about, considering Halford wanted nearly £800 off me which was a definite no. In the end cost £400 because a couple of bits were worn out as well which considering you're getting a quote without anyone actually looking at the car it's expected to go up a bit.but in the end new clutch and a service and everything works perfectly 3 weeks on.drives like a brand new car and they managed to do it in a day even with me forgetting to give them the locking nuts so they couldn't start the work till 11 and I had the car back at 4.very happy with all the work and service done.would recommend completely!
Good service, very pleased
good service price was right I will be using them from now on
Very helpful, they listened and advised. I would recommend these 100% polite. I will be using them in future
Speedy repairs were fantastic from start to finish. Hassan worked around me, to get the repairs done in the timescale I needed. He explained everything he was doing and why, and kept within his original quote. The quality of work is great, and my car is now running perfectly. Hassan also took the time to explain lots of car maintenance tips for me, which was really helpful. I’ll definitely be using Speedy Repairs again in the future.
Friendly staff.help out with the price.not the usual garage that try to make money of you..I’m very glad I did take my car to them.only negative thing(if i can call it so) is that they took a while to get my car running
Very impressed with their performance. Job well done and in my case courtesy car was essential while they were fixing my car. Also i am very pleased that they didn't charge me for using their car. Definitely will use this garage again even though it's 25 miles from were i live. Only hope is that i won't be needing their services for a while. Can't afford to repair it again now. Job well done!!! Thank you!
Higly reccomend this garage. Did the car check,and let me know.And charge for job less. Very frendly customer service,no hidden prices.

A head gasket is effectively a seal which is essential for maintaining the temperature and integrity of a car engine. It's a part responsible for sealing pressure within the engine as well as the distribution of oil and coolant.
Every time you turn on your engine the head gasket has to operate within very high temperatures and pressures, which is exactly what it is designed to do. The engine of your car needs to be cooled constantly as it relies on combustion for power and the head gasket is the core component in performing this job.
If the head gasket is damaged, the engine will quickly overheat and serious damage will be caused. Overheating in the engine of your car will lead to a loss of compression, the mixing of oil, water, coolant as well as a reduction in lubrication.
The head gasket is a very complex piece of equipment and so a variety of materials are needed to build it. It has to be able to withstand and function normally at extreme temperatures and pressure, it also needs to be resistant to all of the chemicals and oils which rush around your car engine.
As a result, each gasket from one car to the next is different as the demands of each engine are unique. Car manufacturers like Ford, Vauxhall and BMW spend millions of pounds every year in the research and development of head gaskets to help manage the pressure and cooling of engines.
Unfortunately, if you need a head gasket repairing, it will be on the more expensive side. However, if you follow the advice below you can learn how to recognise problems with your gasket before something serious happens.
There are other signs to look out for but unless you are a trained mechanic it will be difficult to spot them which is why it is so important that you have your car checked if you suspect there is an issue.
As mentioned above, if a head gasket blows, it can be a costly repair for you as a huge increase in temperature throughout the engine could very easily cause a range of other issues.
If you need a head gasket repair or if you think you might have an issue with the unit, it is vital that you pay attention to the issue, if you ignore the signs above and the gasket blows while you are driving this could cause serious threat to your safety.
A blown head gasket repair can be quite costly for any driver, no matter what car you drive. There is no easy head gasket fix and so you will need to get an experienced mechanic to take a look. The scale does vary for a head gasket repair when looking at different card brands. For a Mercedes, pricing is over £700 on average whereas for a Fiat the price is around £355 on average.
