This is our most effective diagnostic aid, it is used to check waveforms and signals within a vehicle’s many complicated electrical systems.

Air Conditioning service and repair

Air Conditioning

We have recently upgraded our Air conditioning equipment to the Bosch ACS 611 System, which is a state of the art A/C servicing device, this is used on all of our A/C based work.

As well as the ACS 611 we have an extremely accurate set of pressure gauges that are used to detect and pinpoint any leaks within the system.

Emissions Tester

Emissions Tester

As a garage that offers a MOT service we are required to have an emissions tester, as part of the MOT test requires you check the exhaust gasses of the vehicle.

However, the emissions tester can also be a valuable asset when diagnosing a vehicle.



The G-Scan is a new piece of equipment, it is also a very effective diagnostics tool.

Its main areas of use are reading fault codes, checking live data transmitted from the vehicle and performing adaptions on components of the vehicle.

Smoke Tester

Smoke Tester

The Smoke tester is a great way of diagnosing air leaks within the intake or exhaust of a vehicle.

An air leak within either of these systems can cause, damage to the catalyst converter, poor running, bad MPG and misfires amongst other problems.
