first class service,from start to finish.
Excellent service. Very quick, very polite and great to deal with. Will use again
The guys took the car and check it over thoroughly, called me to talk through all the issues that they discovered and gave me a price prior to carrying any work out. The work is second to none, great service and would highly recommend them.
I have never had such an incredible experience as I did when I used the Maryhill branch. Kai and team took care of me and worked tirelessly to ensure my car was safe and road ready again after a number of serious issues were found all within 1 day. All I had to do was go to work and by the time my shift was finished my car had been collected from the carpark repaired and returned perfect. I couldn’t be more thankful. Truly the best garage service I have ever used. The customer service was perfect. Thank you.
Great service. Knowledgable staff who were polite and very helpful. Good job done with an update on completion via phone call. Great garage, would recommend and use again.
Excellent work was the first time I used this garage will definitely use again thanks
The best value for money you can get in and around Crawley by far !!
Great garage, did the regeneration of my dfp in my car which did not fix the problem, they did not charge me for the work they did because it did not work, despite them spending over and hour trying to sort the problem. They were very honest and you don’t get that much anymore and it was thoroughly appreciated.
Many thanks. Will deginitely use again
Fitted a new clutch, a competent garage
Brilliant service, took the length of time he said it would and cost what he had quoted. Taken on time. Very professional work, extremely happy with it! Would use again
I had a timing belt and water pump replaced in Seat Leon. Car was picked up and returned as promised. Good communication, price as previously quoted, everything went fine. I'm appy with the place and would recommend it to others. Thanks :-)
Great service picked up and dropped off car for me and work carries out and car running great again
Excellent all round service
Would highly recommend will be going back for future work
Sorted my brakes had a long wait but the garage was busy. Will use again..
l would use your services again.l would recommend your first class job.
Good fast service from this garage used them a few times
Had to have extras done so obviously this is reflected in the final price. I was very happy with the service I received.
Top guys who know their stuff extremely well. Very polite and helpful they actually tell you everything about the problem, give alternatives and explain the pros and cons. No point using the main dealer where you are kept in the dark most of the times. The dealers should learn customer service and get some knowledge from these guys! I highly recommend them!!!!!.THE BEST OF THE BEST
Amazing service! Fitted me in at short notice and remained in contact throughout to let me know exactly what was being done. Will defiantly use again and will highly recommend.
Good, honest and speedy service. I wont go anywhere else from now on. The garage offers a great level of customer service and regular communication. Any faults found there's no obligation (pressure) to have the work done (as has been my experience with other garages used previously) I received a quote for new discs and pads that wasnt extortionate and compared to other garages seemed to be the fairest and most comprehensive! While Automotive Components had my car they ran a full diagnostics and fed back the results in a straight forward terms I could understand. They even fixed my Parking light for free without quibble. Another nice touch is they collected my car, made the repair and dropped it back. A very grateful BMW 1-Series owner
Engineer was very helpful and gave us a run through on what was done even had the parts that were removed and showed us all the wear on them .Works were completed in the time that was given , overall excellent service was given by this garage .Was given a price for all the works that needed to be done and the final I’ll was exactly this ,no hidden charges or extras . Will definitely use again and pass on to friends and family. Was also given a car to use on the day even though we hadn’t pre-booked .
The guys at Eagles Autos, did a great job, working on find a solutions to my car, unfortunately the car being a Lexus every part is more expensive then normal cars, but this is not Eagle Autos fault. Very happy on their service if ever in need of break pads or any other work I would come back. I recommend this garage for their service and punctuality on getting it done.
They did a great job
Excellent service and happy with the repair.
Great friendly and professional service who found and fixed the existing problem and was given more advice about my vehicle and the diagnostic
Absolutely the very best service I have ever had anywhere in the world. To car owners in Horsham/ Crawley area I truly recommend these guys.
Excellent communication. They ordered the parts one day and fitted them the next. Very pleased.
An exhaust system has the primary function of guiding fumes away from a controlled combustion section of an engine. The exhaust system on a car is carefully designed so the fumes omitted from the engine can be safely transported away from passengers in the car.
The exhaust system is made up of a several parts, all of which could cause potential issues if damaged. Though you only see the tail pipe from the outside of the car, the exhaust system is a large system.
The exhaust ensures fumes are transported from the engine all the way to the tailpipe at the back of the car. The gas flows down from the engine to the flange and onto the catalytic converter, it then travels on to the muffler and resonance chamber before going to the resonator and finally out through the tailpipe.
All of these parts have distinctive functions with piping connecting them along the bottom of the car. Each section of the system has to be completely airtight and functioning properly to ensure the gases are released into the outside environment safely.
Because there are several components of the exhaust system and because it usually stretches the full length of the car, costs can vary.
Depending on the area, part and extent of the damage, you are likely to pay different prices. Some repairs may only consist of sealing a small leak whereas others may result in replacing entire pipes or elements.
If there is a leak in the exhaust system, there is a chance that engine performance will be negatively affected. This is due to the escape of pressure at the wrong point of the system.
It is essential that an exhaust system is not damaged as leakage could pose danger to those inside the vehicle. Hydrocarbons, carbon monoxide and nitrogen oxides could seep into a car if the exhaust is damaged. These gases are also extremely hot and would cause serious damage if they were to meet a passenger.
The piping in an exhaust system must be heat resistant due to the high temperatures of these compounds and if the exhausts integrity is compromised, anything close to the damaged area will be exposed to potential harm.
If your DPF is also blocked or not functioning properly, soot and particulate will escape from the system and cause damage to the environment and people in the surrounding area.
If there is an oil leak, there is only a very small chance that the problem is the exhaust system. This is due to the fact that engine oil doesn’t course through the exhaust like it does for a part like the head gasket.
However, if there is an oil leak, it may get into the combustion system and the result will be blue smoke coming from the exhaust.
A warning light will come on but it will not likely be the check engine light. This is because a problem with the exhaust will be detected specifically by oxygen sensors or the sensors in the DPF if your exhaust system is fitted with one.
A common symptom for a damaged exhaust is a loud roaring noise being emitted from your vehicle. This noise would indicate that you have a problem with the silencer part of the system. A common issue with silencers is corrosion by acidic moisture which is caused by a build-up of the damaging substance.
If a part of the system has cracked or a hole has appeared, you will be able to hear a hissing noise and a chugging sound could mean there is a blockage in the system. If the exhaust is leaking, the issue needs to be addressed immediately as the fumes are dangerous.
There is also a chance that the exhaust is leaking water, in which case, there is a crack or hole somewhere in the system as a possible result of a water leak from the head gasket.
If you hear the exhaust popping or rattling beneath your car it could mean that your exhaust has become misaligned and if you can hear a loud metallic vibration it usually means that something is hitting the exhaust pipe. It could also mean a clamp, mounting or support bracket exhaust is loose.
Hangers and brackets are essential for holding the system in place so if these parts become damaged there is a significant risk that the rest of the system will suffer damage as a result.
If you are able to get underneath your car, it is always the best way to check for signs of damage.
One of the most common issues associated with exhausts is rust build up, however this can often be a minor issue as some pealing of metal is not a huge issue.
If there is a build-up of rust on any part of the system, use a tool such as a screwdriver to see how strong the area feels, if the integrity is solid then the part won’t need replacing however if the metal feels weak when some pressure is applied, its time you get the part removed and a new one installed.
Black smoke coming from your exhaust means that your engine is burning more fuel than it should. This is often caused by a problem with your fuel injectors, air filter or fuel-pressure regulator. Alternatively, the fuel line could be clogged. Burning excessive fuel will have a noticeable effect on fuel economy meaning that you will be spending much more money getting from A-B.
If your exhaust in pumping out blue smoke, oil will have leaked into the engine and been burned in the system. This happens following the valve guide seals or piston rings wearing out and allowing engine oil into the combustion chamber. Engine oil is only meant for the lubrication of parts which are in constant contact with each other.
If engine oil is leaking into the combustion system, you need to have the issue addressed with an oil changeimmediately as low engine oil levels will be incredibly detrimental to your car.
If white smoke is coming from your exhaust, your car could be low on engine coolant from the result of a cracked or warped cylinder head, a cracked engine block or a head gasket failure from overheating.
If engine coolant gets anywhere near the combustion chamber, the liquid will be vaporised and converted into a white gas which is then pushed out through the tailpipe.
If the exhaust is smoking thick black, white or blue fumes, there is also an issue with the system as the exhaust should not be blowing this colour of smoke. To find out why your exhaust is blowing smoke use our dedicated guide.
Car exhaust repair is a service which can be priced at a variety of levels. This is due to the fact that there are a number of things which could go wrong.
