Get a great-value Head Gasket Repair with Who Can Fix My Car.
Really efficient and managed to sort all of the areas the car failed on during the same day even though it's a Japanese import. They were quick to research the parts and find out where to get them same day to avoid me having to wait for it over weekend. And then were really friendly and helpful when I went to pick it up.
Good staff and fixed the car quick
Very good service and the price is right and fair... very satisfied with the outcome.Previously I contacted other garages who would have charged me as double as that...
Work carried out on time very professional phoned when the work had been completed,this is now the garage I will use not only for my car but wife’s as well.
Extremely good service. It was collected MOT and full service done and returned to me on the same day. There was a couple of things that were highlighted as FYI’s which we discussed and I asked if they could do the work that day. They were brilliant. Thanks guys. Will definitely use again next year
Top service from start to finish clean environment very helpful and informative staff excellent communication at Kam Bulwell
Good work and always helpful, good price as well.
I arranged an appointment with this garage to change a tire for me but i turned up 20 minutes early but they said its fine and done my tire for me it took them 20 minutes to do the tire, this garage is very good and efficient. They are polite and explain everything to you that you need to know.
Excellent friendly service, called to book my car in and Simon, said he could fit me in the following day, car was done and ready to collect in a couple of hours, will definitely be using them again, and recommending to friends and family
Fast, honest and friendly workmanship. Had a few more issues with the breaks than I initially thought but was phoned and told about these straight away and the price I was given was more then reasonable. Would definitly recommend and use again myself.

Picked up my car and did the job quickly, then returned the car quickly, overall very impressed with the service provided, would recommend.

Excellent Service - Very helpful - completed quickly as they said
There’s not a bad thing I can say about KAM. Great communication, excellent knowledge, friendly and professional. Everything you want in a garage. Upon arriving they welcome you and talk through what’s going to happen. The service and MOT all went through okay as expected and I had to pay a little more than expected but that was due to my vehicle needing specialist oils. As it stand still I will continue to use this garage for all my vehicle and service work. My vehicle is back in today for a new Catalytic converter and Lambda sensors, work that I trust them to complete today too. I’ll leave another review shortly on this.
Excellent service from Som and the team. We were told they would need the car for at least an hour and a half, but in the end only took a hour and even offered to give us a lift to get some breakfast while we waited. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending this garage.
Brilliant quick response and completion of the clutch replacement. I was kept informed at each stage of the job and the office staff were really friendly.
Had to wait awhile but job done to time as promised. Good service at a reasonable price. Only time will tell if the discs and pads live up to their promised longevity. Staff always friendly and professional.
Excellent service and value. These guys had my wife's car in for a clutch and DMF replacement same day and at very competitive rates. 24 months guarantee on the part too. Initially they called me after an online quote and explained the discount they offered and that paying over 4 months was also available to help with those larger bills. Staff at the garage were polite and even bought my daughter some sweets. Cannot recommend enough. Top place.
The service was amazing
Excellent service, friendly staff, work completed within time quoted
Fixed the problem and also had a courtesy car while being repaired. Thanks
Was shocked with the price more than doubling from £99. But did understand the reason why.very professional and got my van sorted within the same day and all seems fine now thank you

Yes i have already recommended this garage great job done plus they identified the actual part that was really needed thats lads
After being told by a mechanic that we would need a replacement head gasket we bought it to this garage asking for the head gasket repair. After examining it they told us it was actually a different problem and the gasket was fine. We got our car repaired for over half the price we were expecting! Very professional and excellent service from everyone here. Would definitely 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.
