The service and assistance given by this garage was second to none and the price for that was as good as it was expected to be. Nothing is too much trouble. Top notch.

Excellent service and job done quickly ! A++
Great garage. I knew my car needed work so booked it in for a spring replacement after a dodgy pot hole broke it. My usual garage was full so I found this garage using this website.. ten times better than my usual garage! They found a few other jobs that needed doing and repaired at a very good price and checked everything over with me. They found jobs my garage had advised did not need doing which could have wrecked my car in the long run! Great staff who know what they're doing and fix the problems at a great price and are very fair.. have had 3 other jobs fixed by them afterwards and will use them always in the future. Thanks
Found the fault and fix the problem in less than 30 mins when other garages havent had a clue what the problem was. Many thanks. Highly recommended.
Great garage, would definitely use again..

Got a full Service on a Mini Cooper on same day I called .Really good service at a good price and staff very friendly and helpful. Highly recommended and will be my first choice to go for any future car repairs .
They were great
Car dropped off and back same day. Couldn’t have asked for a better service.
Car running back to its best. I knew about a suspension problem when took car in for full service and MOT. Explained to Ryan and it was diagnosed and fixed same day (broken suspension arm). My second time of using the garage and will continue to do so , many thanks.
Would recommend. Price a little higher than quoted but additional work was completed. All work completed for a reasonable price. Good communication from garage throughout the day.
Quick, polite, professional - would use again!
Mechanic did a good job, happy - all sorted.
Lee came to carry out a pre MOT check on my Toyota Celica which has been stood for two years. Lee did an extremely thoughrough check and advised me on what my car will need in order to get it back on the road. I found Lee very pleasant and easy to deal with providing me with a detailed explanaition of what work will be essential and work which I may wish to consider in order to maintain my car for the future. I would not hessitate in recomending Assist Autos to others particularly if you require your car to be maintained at your home rather than take it to the garage which was vital for me not havig a current MOT. I was charged exacly what I was quoted and will look to book my car back in with them to carry out the work required. Five Stars !
Great customer service very prompt professional and kept me well informed throughout the day. Did a great job on the car. Anees is a great owner will definitely be returning
very efficient service.
Great job once again by this garage, full cambelt kit, water pump, v-ribbed belt and coolant change all done in a timely manner, at a reasonable price. Would recommend Anees and would definitely go back to this garage again for car service/ repairs.
Excellent work by Anees. Genuine and highly recommend.
Excellent service from the very start! Came back to me quickly with a quote and he knew straight away the problem was more likely to be the slave cylinder instead of the master cylinder which I thought was the problem! He was right, and fixed it for me very quickly for the price quoted and also bled the fluid at no extra charge! I'm Always wary when it comes to clutch repairs as I have been ripped off in the past but Anees has restored my faith that there are honest mechanics out there! Would definitely recommend! Other garages were quoting me triple what he charged and Anees gave 2 year warranty too! Extremely happy all round!
The fuel pump is responsible for pumping fuel into the cylinders of the engine and performs an extremely important function in the running of a car.
Fuel injectors are susceptible to becoming dirty and often require cleaning, when they become clogged they can cause noticeable problems when driving.
There are some tell-tale signs that your fuel injector needs cleaning so as soon as you see the following indicators, take your Smart to a mechanic.
You can buy fuel injector cleaning kits and perform the job yourself, however this will require getting your hands dirty and removing the part from the engine.
Unless you are a trained professional, this can be a difficult job which is why we would recommend that you leave the work to mechanic!
However, if you would like to carry out the work yourself, here is a step by step guide on how to clean a fuel injector.
The first step is the easiest, simply go to any shop around that sells car cleaning kits and get your hands on a fuel injection cleaning kit.
There may be more than one type of kit as different so make sure to get the right one for your car.
You may even have to assemble the kit yourself by buying cleaning fluid and other materials if there is not a full kit on sale.
Make sure to ask for help if you don’t know what to look for.
Each car is different and so the fuel injector will be located in different places. The easies way to find the part is by using the manual that came with your car when your first bought it. This will list where the fuel injection pump is.
This is where the job starts to get technical and we would once again recommend that you only follow these steps if you are familiar with car maintenance and are able to navigate a car engine with ease.
The fuel injectors will be connected to the fuel pump and there will be a few of them.
Remove the injectors and connect a fuel return line or U tube which will divert the fuel back to the tank.
Specific vehicles will require the complete removal of the fuel pump or relay for proper cleaning to be possible.
There should be a section in your car owners manual that tells you about how to disconnect the injectors from the pump and connect a U tube or return line so pay close attention to the instructions.
You should consult your car owners manual to locate the vacuum line, once you’ve found where it is in the engine, remove the tube.
The first thing you’ll need to do is locate the fuel pressure test port and connect your new cleaning kit.
The kit itself will have detailed instructions on how to perform this task.
The cleaner fluid itself is flammable so it’s vital that you don’t spill any of it over your engine or get it on the injectors themselves.
The cleaning kit works by shooting cleaning fluid and air at high pressure around the fuel system, however there needs to be somewhere for the air to escape just in case there is a blockage and a build up of pressure begins.
Ignoring this precaution could result in serious damage being caused to your car.
Make sure that all of the connections are properly fixed and ensure the fuel pump is switched off.
Now its time to turn on the engine.
The cleaner will then circulate through the injectors until the cycle is complete, make sure to follow the exact instructions on your specific kit as the time to leave the engine on may vary from kit to kit and engine type to engine type.
When you have switched the engine off, you will be free to remove the cleaner and reconnect all of the other parts that you have disconnected.
Once more, follow the instructions on in your car owners manual and on the cleaning kit itself to ensure this is all done properly.
Remember to close the fuel cap once you have completed cleaning your fuel injector.
This is the moment of truth and when you will find out whether you have managed to complete the job properly.
Turn on your car engine and listen to see if there are any abnormal sounds coming for the engine. If this is the case then you should take your car to a mechanic immediately and tell them what has happened.
However, if your car is still suffering from the symptoms we listed earlier in the guide, your fuel injector pump and injectors may need replacing and cleaning them has simply had no effect as they are damaged.
If cleaning the parts of the fuel injection system has not resolved your issue, you will need to take your car in for repair.
As there are several parts that make up the system there may only be certain parts that require repair or replacement so costs and time taken to complete the work will vary greatly.
If you have attempted to clean the system with using the advice above, make sure to tell the mechanic as they will likely attempt to carry this work out in a first attempt to resolve the issue.
