Thanks Multifix for Fixing my car with dents and painting and also Viola for nice reception of the people & moreover pickup and drop off service should be definitely appreciated. I will recommend and also come back if I can. we shouldn't expect to go for our car for sure, but whenever a problem or for friend's car problem, multifix is the place.
This husband and wife team make service the heart of what they do. They worked over the weekend so I could have my car ready for my job in the NHS. The standard was very high and the price competitive . They collected and delivered which was fantastic so don't let distance put you off. I will recommend and come back to this garage.
Quality paint work service. Recommended to others and also i will definitely go back in the near future for other repair works. Viola arrived on time to pick up the car and returned 15 mins early. She was really friendly and dealt everything professionally. Highly recommended this garage.
Very prompt and efficient service. Good job done and would recommend. Damian & Viola even delivered my car back home after hours :)
Responded very quickly to messages and got the car looking good as new, couldn't be happier with the work.

These guys are simply brilliant at what they do. Faultless.
Top marks for Dave. My car had been out of action for quite a while requiring a new head gasket. Lothian Autos were the first to respond and they offered a MUCH cheaper price than other quotes I’ve seen. Dave came out and got on with the job on site and grafted non stop despite the weather. The car turned out to have a few more complications needing fixing before it was roadworthy again, Dave did all he could to to not only sort it al out but ensure the job was done as quickly as possible and at as best a price as he could get it done for, coming out for numerous days back to back, and if I wasn’t on location he kept me up to speed regarding the job via message / calls. Despite a long task and difficulties of working over the Christmas period, he got it done and dropped the car off at a pre planned location for me. Sound bloke and will graft until the job is done as best as possible. I’m now finally back on the road and my car drives smoother than ever. Job well done
Brilliant 10/10 - will reuse despite distance! I nearly didn’t consider this garage as I thought their quote of £430 for a cylinder head gasket replacement and MOT was too good to be true. The only other quote was over £200 higher and also from a garage nearly as far away. I had a bit of trouble finding them on Google Street View. The map icon & KY1 1TS postcode got me close, but the car park, big sign & professional hydraulic ramp they really have are invisible ! (From 12 Methven Rd, facing south, continue downhill bearing left, the entrance is opposite where Methven Rd splits 3 ways at bottom of grassy island. Take driveway straight across road into car park to find hidden garage.) I read all the 5* reviews & thought, yeah, maybe he’s got a lot of pals.... So I hereby swear I’m not connected, just converted. My “oil in coolant” problem got ignored for 18 months, turkey-baster couldn’t even extract warm coolant any more. I didn’t know if it could still be flushed, plus there was other work required. To be fair I explained and showed the true nature of problem so they could refine their quote. They diagnosed that the fault really was CHG, so they gave it 4 flushes, arranged a head skim, new CHG and bolts. Plus a new radiator with hoses together with a new timing belt, (which I forgot to mention, but after 67K definitely urgently needed), new coolant, oil & oil filter, plus new fan belt, wipers and they MOTed it. Cleaned engine beautifully too. Having my MOT expire around Xmas/New Year is always a pain, but despite short notice and 2 unexpected problems, they did a great job and even dropped off and collected me from the station. The car now runs great again, feels renewed, no more power losses or overheating. I just can’t recommend them enough !!! If I had found an open local Edinburgh garage, based on past experience, I suspect I would have been charged nearly double.
Highly recommend this garage, great service, great prices, Efficiant and Professional on every level. Highly Recommend A****
Professional and efficient, work done as promised quickly. Friendly service I would highly recommend
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.
