The battery is the source of all power in your vehicle and anyone who has ever had to jump start their car will tell you how important a fully functioning battery is.
That’s why looking after your battery is a vital part of vehicle maintenance. Car batteries have an average lifespan of approximately three to four years, so when it is nearing this age, or you notice any signs that your battery may be diminishing, you should have it checked.
Exhausts are usually made up of at least 4 parts, and any one of these can need replacing at any time.
Having a properly fitted and functioning exhaust system is essential to your exhaust's operation, and will allow smooth exit of waste products; this is key in keeping your engine running smoothly.
Thanks to years of experience in the car garage industry our skilled mechanics are able to quickly identify problems, suggest solutions and perform repairs or fit new exhaust systems for all makes and model of cars.
Road safety is our priority, so coupled with our reliable reputation, you're assured of a good job regardless of whether it's an inspection on your current exhaust system or replacement with a new one.
The braking system is your vehicle’s ultimate safety system so it is important that it works effectively. Over time, much like tyres, your brakes will be subject to general wear and tear and this makes them less effective.
When you press down on your brake pedal, hydraulic pressure is forced into the master cylinder of the braking system. This pressure is then transmitted through hoses and cylinders which make up the braking system, multiplying the force. This leads to the brake pads being pushed against the rotors on the disc brake and the friction helps to slow you down and bring you to a safe stop.
HOW DO I KNOW MY BRAKES NEED ATTENTION?
- Unusual smell when braking
- Brake pedal feels spongy when pressed
- Your brakes are noticeably less effective
- Vehicle pulls to the side when braking
- Steering wheel judders or shakes when braking
If you do notice any of these signs or a drop in brake performance or any other irregularities when braking, you must have your brakes looked at by a specialist as soon as possible.
Common brake problems
The signs listed above indicate that there could be a problem with your vehicle’s brakes and they may require repair or replacement. Potential problems with your brakes could be:
- General wear and tear – which reduces braking effectiveness and usually means that you need to have your brake pads and discs replaced.
- Brake fluid needs replacing – this needs to be replaced every two years and is easily corrected although this could also indicate a brake fluid leak which will need specialist attention. If your brakes have become soft and spongy it is likely that this is the cause.
- Distortion – brake discs can become out of shape and distorted over time and this is especially common on older brakes.
- Faults – general faults can occur with any component on the braking system and these could be one of a range of issues such as warped callipers, faulty sensors and corrosion.
The diagnosis of any brake problem is virtually impossible to do without a visual inspection. For this reason, We always recommend that you bring your vehicle in for a free check, to ensure that we will only quote for and replace exactly what you need.
