Servicing and Repairs

To keep your vehicle running well and avoid repairs on expensive components it is important to service your vehicle regularly.

We can service all makes and models of motor vehicles and if you have a new vehicle or one that is less than 2 years old – you no longer have to have it serviced at the main dealer to validate the warranty. We will use genuine parts and follow the service schedule of your vehicle for a fraction of the main dealer prices without invalidating your manufacturer’s warranty

When we carry out a full service, we will be checking key safety areas – steering, brakes, tyres and suspension. We use a  good quality and correct grade oil and we will check fluid levels. We will notify you of any concerns we may have on things that might need attention in the future so that it can be monitored and if we find anything that requires immediate attention this will be discussed with you, photos taken and prices given. We take into account your driving habits and annual mileage when making our assessment of any work required.

LPG Servicing, Diagnostic and Repair

We offer LPG service and repair on a selection of LPG systems – Prins and BRC. We no longer offer conversion to LPG but having been in the industry for over 15 years in which time we have gained the expertise to carry out servicing and repairs.

If you are experiencing running issues with your LPG system have a look at the helpful tips below.

Helpful Tips

Ignition System

The ignition system on a vehicle will comprise of spark plugs, coil and on some cars ignition leads. When running on LPG these components are working harder than on petrol as LPG is harder to ignite. Consequently it is quite common to have a running issue such as missing, hesitation, poor idle and poor economy to mention a few which may or may not be accompanied with the engine management light (EML) illuminated on the dash.

Cooling System

The majority of LPG systems rely on a connection to the vehicles cooling system to provide heat to the regulator unit. The purpose of this is to combat the generated by the process of converting the LPG stored in the tank in liquid form to a vapour prior to being piped into the engine. A lack of constant flow of hot water can either cause the LPG system to turn back to petrol of cause running issues possible accompanied with the smell of LPG. Another tell tale sign that the coolant is low could be a reduction of heat from your heater.

Smell of LPG

You need to take this one seriously and I would suggest picking the phone up and speaking to a technician and obviously switching it off of LPG. It isn’t something we will try and diagnose over the phone.
