Get a great-value Head Gasket Repair with Who Can Fix My Car.
Excellent service. Well worth the price. Staff when above and beyond what we asked them to do with no extra charge ie we asked them to adjust the handbrake on top of replacing the cam belt which was the main job. They took all the wheels and tyres off, checked all the brake pads etc and did a cracking job. Would recommend them without a problem
Very quick repair, cheap price & accommodating staff
Quick service, no delays, informative employees.
Managed to squeeze me in last minute for a cam belt and waterpump change and was done in less then 4 hours. Quick turn around. Friendly garage. Recommended and didn't cost me a fortune as some other garages quoted
Excellent service, great communication throughout, would highly recommend this garage.
All work completed as quoted. Collected and delivered my car when they said they would. Much cheaper than the quote from the main dealer.
Got my clutch fixed here, very good service! Highly recommended
Nice garage rang me up straight away if there was an issue friendly people would deffo use again
Took my car in for service and mot they found things that needed doing and repaired the car the same day for a reasonable price would recommend to friends and family
Great guys and great garage. They were fast, respectful and polite. I sent my van in for a full service and MOT and my van failed. But they had instantly a breakdown of jobs needed to pass and prices which were very fare and then the van was fixed and ready by the next day. Definitely will be going back and recommend anyone else too
Great service, great value, all round great guys. We will be back with the other car!
fast nolagable will use them again
Great customer service, friendly and courteous staff, comes highly recommended.
Great customer service from Dexter who came to pick my car, dropped it off end of day. MOT fail at a different extortionist garage just before Christmas travelling and Dexter saved the day sorting out all fail items and advisories for a very reasonable quote well below the others including re-MOT. Would definitely recommend.
Love, friendly family business. Reliable and reasonably priced.
Great price. Great service
Brilliant service from DC Motors, just had a service on my fiat Tipo. A lot cheaper than dealer quotes. Will definitely recommend and will be back next time.
Great fast and friendly service will definitely be using again!
Excellent service, kept me informed throughout online. Courteous and gave me a full explanation for the extra cost - picking up and returning the car - which obviously wasn't in the original quote. Prompt and efficient, would definitely recommend.
Great service and fitted me in straight away. Thank you so much
Nice guys , work done very quickly
Great and quick service, very nice staff!
Excellent thank you
Really pleased with RTJ Autos, enquired about servicing my car only 2 days ago and they were able to book me in for this morning. The guys were really polite and professional, and gave me an accurate time for when my car would be ready. Very impressed and will return when my car is due an MOT/service next time. Cheers!
Very honest and trustworthy, very rare these days. I would be using RTJ again for future mechanical and servicing works and definately recommend RTJ to others. Rauf
yes i would recommend this garage they are very friendly and helpfull
Couldn’t be happier with the service provided by Brooke street motors, collected my car on New Year’s Eve and delivered it back to me, Got quite a few quotes and this was by far the best quote. Top quality job done very professional and constantly kept me updated about the progress. Best garage I’ve been to by far and I wouldn’t consider going anywhere else again. Would highly recommend.
Dexter fixed my head gasket for the price quoted online. In addition to two other jobs I later requested, at a price I was also happy with. Fixed my car in quick time and provided me with a warranty. I would highly recommend to anyone. thanks.
Fantastic service, great guys, excellent job and will definitely highly recommend LM mechanics for peace of mind trusted repairs.
Fixed my head gasket and water pump and completely checked over the engine and talked through the process, great service, honest and quick will definitely use again!

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.
