Very Helpful would use again
Patrick and the guys at the garage have been an asset to my taxi business and keeping me on the road. Everything is professional and I have since given them more work. He is my go to for keeping me on the road. Thanks.
Excellent service and quick response to resolve issues will come back again
Patrick was great, he's a genuine guy and I would highly recommend him for all car works. Picked up my car the very next day first thing in the morning, my car was repaired very quickly and for a great price.
Got this job just before Christmas, Very satisfied with all the work done, front n back pads and disks on a Range Rover.
Excellent service. Identified the issue quickly and kept me fully informed. Would definitely use again. My faith in car mechanics has been restored!!
Lovely guys. Very helpful.
Eagle Autos have done what I asked for with my exhaust, even that was a minor job but still my van was successful on MOT check on the other day. Polite service, quick, no waiting room but I do definitely recommend that garage if you wish for economy repairs.
Professional service well done. Picked up my car swiftly and got it done at the time they said they would. Slightly more pricier than the other quotes but it included a major service.
Problem got dealt with quickly. Friendly welcoming garage.
Amazing service very fast
Nice work, thanks Suhail.
First visit to the garage. Quite happy with their job, definatelly I will trust them again.
Dropped off in the morning for all round pads & Discs to be fitted, collected same day in the afternoon, Sterling job!! - well impressed, quote was also a competitive bargain. Brilliant professional blokes at 'All 4 Wheels'. - Definitely going back for all future jobs I need. A+
They were great, I had been quoted £95 for a new wing mirror to be sprayed and fitted. In the event I didn't need to have the paint work done so they just fitted the mirror for me as I stood there. As I didn't need all of the work they had quoted more for they charged me less than I was quoted. Even though they are not my closest garage, I would definitiely use again
Very friendly and professional. Explained everything to me in a way I could understand.
Lee from Assist Auto replaced the alternator and belt. The price was as agreed. I would recommend this company.
Assist Auto were on time, on price and on delivery - they had that clutch out and replaced in a few hours - amazing thank you!
Very impressed with ease of arranging, timeframe for work and the speed and efficiency with which the work was carried out. Very professional and friendly.
Happy with work. Friendly nature. They came in time and change all required parts in time.

With dents and severe scratches to the body work of my car. Ade and team managed to have it put back to its original state in a short amount of time. Would definitely recommend this garage. My car looks good as new and will be back. Customer service was also amazing with picture updates on the progress of the work being done. Thank you all very much!

Great service and great price!
Very friendly, efficient and explained all the extra costs
Really good, I'm really happy!
Absolutely brilliant Garage. How had I not found these guys before??? They saved me £1500 on a head gasket replacement that was NOT necessary. 100% honest, trust worthy and professional. I can't recommend this garage highly enough. Junior, you are an Angel. Thank you so much for keeping me informed every step of the way. As a female customer, it's important to find a mechanic you can trust. You really looked after me and my car is purring like a kitten. I wont be going anywhere else in future, you have gained yourself another loyal customer!
Ivy helped me through a hard time and made it hassle and stress free. I have been messed around a lot with garages but Galaxy Auto Centre has stuck to their word and got me back on the road on time. 10/10 for Ivy and her team. Highly recommended.
Great service. Prompt reply. All done (which also included a full service) in 4 hours from phone call. Good prices and good people.
Mark is a lovely bloke, work was done as per discussion, took a little longer than expected but I was given a FREE courtesy car for the duration. Teething problems occurred but Marc had it straight back to sort.

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.
