Job done at an extremely good price (almost 1/3rd of main dealer cost) Car picked up and delivered back. No complaints at all. Will certainly use again and recommend to anybody.
Fantastic service from Auto Solutions. Collected my car and re-delivered to my house fixed within 48 hours. Price rose slightly by my own choosing due to them suggesting having the timing belt replaced whilst they had already stripped the car back. Highly recommend them and will likely be using them again in the future, super fast service.
good service, friendly people. Replaced timing chain, filters and all tippers. No more rattling noise when I drive!!
Yes. This exceeded my expectations. They were very quick in fixing my break pads. Would highly recommend them.
Car was serviced as required only took 90 mins
Excellent services. In constant contact with Patrick was collected and return as stated. Price quoted was the final price. Patrick also touched up a couple of chips on the door edge and a smaller scrap on the back bumper ( within the quoted price). Totally satisfied with the finish and the expertise of the company. Would totally recommend them.
Great garage! Good guys who are professional and efficient. Will definitely return and recommend to everyone.
Very competitive price, handy location for me. Patrick is very nice fella, very helpful, sourced good quality (Bosch/Brembo) discs and pads. Job was completed speedily. Would whole heartedly recommend ACS. Came across this site and ACS only via google search. Very glad I did. Would use again next time I need garage.
A clutch replacement was needed rather than attention to the gearbox and has solved the problem . The car was collected and returned within the timescale promised and I was able to check on progress over the phone. Full marks for that but less than full marks for the paperwork. Payment had to be by cash, no invoice appeared as promised and no receipt available either except a handwritten one on a piece of blank paper. They need to warn that only cash is acceptable and lrovide proper documentation of what’s done and confirmation of the guarantee period.
Great service 5* took my car to another garage they told me it was problem with pump got that changed then they told me no it's not pump it is clutch so took my car way and found this website who can fix my car. This was cheaper quote I got and after spending money on pump I didn't need in end I went with it they come to collect my car in afternoon at work and even gave me a car to drive which I wasn't expecting which saved me time and money as I was planning get train home from work. Next day got call in afternoon say not only clutch needed changing but gear stick was broken they even sent me a video to show me damage, didn't cost that much more so got fixed by time I left work at 5pm the next day car was with me and felt brand new. Saved me time and effort for pickup of car. Zak driver picked up my car was very professional and polite. Cash payment made on drop of my car after test drove it for 2-3miles. Good points - Service 5* - give you replacement car - pick up your car from any location - quick turn around 1day or same day service - great price comparison with others Bad points - cash payment - late on responding to calls and text - no recipet or paper work given All in all have more good then bad and can save you time and money would recommend to anyone.
Kaz and his boys done a terrific job in fixing my gearbox and a new clutch. They found another problem , informed me about it and asked if I wanted them to proceed..Car was returns in pristine condition Thanks boys
What an amazing garage. They fixed my car within 4 hours when other garages told me it was an 8 hour job. On top of this the price was £400 cheaper than any other garage. The set up is simple but the quality of workmanship is amazing and the best I have ever seen. Kaz the owner is an amazing guy and a true businessman. The free collection and drop off service is fantastic but more importantly is how forthcoming and transparent this garage is as they gave me all of my old parts back. If you would like to get your clutch, flywheel or gearbox done then look no where other than New Shepperton Tyres & Autocentre, you will not be disappointed with the service and guaranteed to get value for money. Many thanks to Kaz and his team.
I'm was impressed how quick the job as done, cheap compare to others and very friendly people
Collected my car, fixed it, MOT'd it and delivered it back to me really quickly, and all for a really good price. Will definitely use this garage again next time I get stuck with a car problem :-)
An efficient and professional service that for the price above included a cam-belt and water pump change,oil and air filter change and synthetic oil change as well as a courtesy car whilst the job was being done. I should be able to award six stars. Thank you very much Swanmore Repair centre.
Very personable and professional, very competitive pricing. I added on oil change, filter and air-filter which was a very reasonable cost.
Brilliant service.Thank you
An excellent service at an excellent price. The above price included a cam-belt and water pump change, oil and air filter change and a C3 oil change. Polite and friendly staff who also loaned me a courtesy car whilst the job was done. If I could I would award them six stars. Well done.
Very good job did as asked no hidden extra very happy
This is a fantastic group of people. I used to use them but have moved further away and had a terrible experience with a different garage. When I used WhoCanFixMyCar.com I learned that Pool Street will come and collect and return your car even as far away as I am. Much appreciated and unlike most they always stick to their word and don't charge for diagnosis or advice.
Great service, will be using again!
Easy to book,job done at a fair price,service with a smile,recommended.
Very good service would recommend to anybody
Excellent Service !!! Honest and polite staff. You will not be disappointed

A Gearbox is the device used to increase and decrease torque, a twisting force which causes rotation, through the increase or reduction of speed. Ultimately, the Gearbox is used to change the speed of the vehicle.
If you are putting your car into a gear, only for it to slip out, it’s obvious you have a fault. A likely cause is that the gears themselves will be worn down.
You will have to have the parts replaced as a result of the damage as it will only get worse as time progresses.
It would also be wise to check your transmission fluid levels as the parts may have worn down as a result of low lubricants.
Like many of the issues listed on this guide, low levels of transmission fluid can be the reason for the problem.
If you are hearing more noise than usual from your car while it is neutral, then check the levels of fluid and try topping it up.
If this does not resolve the problem, then the most likely cause will be worn down gearbox parts.
As soon as you see ‘Service Engine Soon’ in yellow on your dashboard, that is exactly what you should do as it is an indicator that something is about to go wrong or already has.
There are a variety of sensors on different parts of your car including ones on the transmission. They are in place to detect specific signs of an issue developing such as vibrations or jerks which you may not be able to see, hear or feel.
Paying attention to the light could help you save money on a gearbox repair so make sure to do so!
A dragging clutch is caused when the flywheel and clutch fail to disengage which makes changing gears almost impossible.
This gearbox problem will likely be accompanied by a grinding noise being emitted every time you try to change gears.
Luckily a gearbox repair cost will not be extortionate if you are suffering from this problem.
If the clutch has too much slack in the pedal then the linkage between the clutch disk and the pedal wont be able to pull the two parts apart.
Therefore, the linkage simply needs to be tightened or replaced which isn't as expensive as other gearbox repairs.
If your car simply refuses to go into a specific gear it is worth checking the level of you fluid as this is a common issue, though can be resolved by topping the liquid up.
There are other potential issues that would prevent you being able to go into a specific gear.
Occasionally the computer which is part of your car can be the source of the problem, alternatively the shift cables could require adjusting.
A burning smell in a car is never a good sign and as soon as you notice it is vital that you call a mobile mechanic or break down assistance in order to diagnose the problem and find a solution.
When it comes to the gearbox, a burning smell can be the result of transmission fluid overheating.
If the fluid system fails, then other parts of the system will suffer as a result.
Transmission fluid acts as lubricant and a cooling agent for the moving parts of a transmission as they are in constant perpetual motion as a car is driven, this causes friction and a build-up of heat.
Therefore a lack of transmission fluid will be harmful to these parts and a burning smell will be emitted.
If you ignore the burning smell in your car then an entire transmission replacement is likely to be required.
A car should not grind or shake at all so do not think that its normal even if it is gradual and only minor.
If ignored the issue will get worse and you will end up incurring a higher gearbox repair cost.
Grinding and shaking is a common symptom of a faulty gearbox when you move from one gear to the next.
There may even be an issue with the clutch if you feel these effects after you change gears.
If so it is likely that your clutch will need replacing.
The gear synchronizers in your car may be also be badly damaged or worn down if you feel shaking or grinding.
The transmission system can only operate while automatic transmission fluid lubricates, cleans and conditions the seals while acting as hydraulic fluid.
Even if the transmission fluid is below normal levels, your car will suffer and if it all leaks, you will face serious problems.
Automatic transmission fluid (ATF) is bright red and, surprisingly, smells sweet (that is if everything is in working order).
If you detect a leak and the fluid fits this description then you are in luck, all that you require is a hole to be filled.
However, if you come across liquid which is dark and emits a burning smell then the issue is likely to be worse.
Typically this will require the entire transmission system to be flushed or changed as it has become contaminated and is no longer suitable for use in the engine.
ATF liquid is different to motor oil as the engine doesn’t consume any of it, therefore, if it is below its normal level, it’s a fact that you have a leak.
If you would like to check the fluid level, try to locate the transmission case (close to the fill plug) and perform a visual assessment.
Once more, if you have a leak, it is essential that you address the issue and find a clutch or gearbox specialist using WhoCanFixMyCar as we will be able to provide you with a range of quotes from local mechanics.
If you try to move into a certain gear and you feel resistance, or the gearstick keeps popping out, then there is definitely an issue.
There should not be any pushback when you go into gear and so if you even feel the slightest change you should take your car to a gearbox specialist or automatic gearbox specialist as soon as possible.
Typically, this is a problem involving the clutch as well so be prepared to replace it if you run into this type of issue.
It can be difficult to diagnose the extent of a gearbox problem which involves the clutch, so the best advice is to take your car into a clutch and gearbox specialist as mentioned above.
Hearing a strange noise from your car is probably the best way to know that something isn’t right.
There are a plethora of issues which could be causing a noise to come from your car engine and the gearbox is one system which could be causing a new sound.
The specific noise will vary greatly on the model of the car, part and specific issue so it is almost impossible to specifically identify an issue from a sound alone.
The biggest indicator that your gearbox has an issue will be if you hear a clunking noise when you shift gears which sound mechanical, abrupt and loud.
The same can be said of automatic gearboxes, if you notice a clunking noise as you accelerate, slow down or drive on an incline, it would be indicative of an issue with the transmission.
Even if the noise sounds severe, it may be a minor issue, however it will turn into a major one if you do not diagnose the transmission problem.
The gearbox repair cost will spiral if you neglect to address the problem.
Whether you need to replace an automatic gearbox or replace a manual gearbox, the price will vary from one garage to the next and the cost will also vary on the model of the car.
A reconditioned gearbox is a part which has been broken but has been fixed by a transmission expert. If you suffer from a gearbox problem, there is the worry about spending money on new parts, however, it is often possible to salvage engine parts and a reconditioned gearbox is ideal from those wanting to avoid spending money on expensive new parts.
Reconditioned gearbox prices vary depending on the car model however it is always worth shopping around for the best price.
