Get a great-value Head Gasket Repair with Who Can Fix My Car.
Excellent price and a job well done , car was collected and delivered back at no extra cost , great communication , would highly recommend and would definately use them again
Perfect. Good polite service and bang on the price.
Brilliant service from start to finish. Very flexible and friendly staff with pick up/ drop off service used. Will absolutely use again thank you.
Very friendly and helpful; i recently had my brake pads replaced by this garage. The mechanic called with a time they could collect the day before my booked appointment, they collected my car early morning before i went to work and had the work finished and returned to my home by midday and could drop the keys through the letterbox. Was able to take payment over the phone whilst i was at work too. Thoroughly recommend this service to anyone needing work to their car done.
Very efficient and Paul was very knowledgeable and easy to get on with - a great job thanks.
Customer service excellent, i did not go ahead with job as cancelled it as realised was too far for me. They did offer a courtesy car, excellent customer service.
Excellent service, legitimate Brembo parts and cheaper than anywhere else. Paul knows his stuff and is very professional. Thoroughly recommended.
Very good communication from the garage. Extra works explained along with the costs.
Excellent service and communication with these people very friendly quick job and very very good price at all
Quick and professional
Did not realise added charge for gas
Highly recommended. Had MOT, service done at Kwik Fit a few days before and made to feel as though they were doing me a favour! Also felt ripped off by Kwik Fit. Totally different story at RAD. Will certainly be using a my regular mechanics and will be recommending!!!
Took the car in and it was ready to be picked up by lunchtime. Fast service, well recommended.
Very happy with the clutch and flywheel replacement, car now pulls away and drives as it used to. Only minor thing - they don't take cash, only cards, meaning an extra bus ride home to get the other half to pay with her card and bus back to the garage again. Would have been nice to have been told it was cards only when I booked the car in, dropped it off, or arranged to pick the car up!!
Friendly and helpful staff
Straightforward but prices quoted to repair my vehicle were very high so went elsewhere
Fantastic garage looked after my Mrs excellently couldn't do enough for her would recommend this garage to all outstanding service will definitely use again
excellent Service additional parts required hence price uplift job well done
Have used them in the past on my Citroen C5 taxi (part used tyres) This time, wheel alignment done on my Ford Focus, no waiting around, sorted, just enough time for a free coffee!
Excellent service extra work carried out for no extra cost. Great communication and very friendly service. Supplied a loan car when things took longer than first expected. Would definitely use again highly recommended
Excellent service , kept me informed , friendly and professional service
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.
