Edinburgh Car Services have invested heavily over the last five years in the Diagnostic equipment to ensure we are capable of carrying out Vehicle Diagnostics on all makes and models.
We can currently carry out Diagnostics and Coding on:
Whether you’re a petrolhead who wants to maximise performance and handling or just a regular driver concerned with safety and economy, tyres are a key element of your vehicle – its only points of contact with the road. And unlike most components, which we hope will not wear out, tyres bear the brunt of all your cornering, acceleration and braking. We offer best and cheap tyres, Edinburgh.
Do you need an MOT?
Drivers tend to dread the yearly MOT test, but it doesn’t have to be stressful or expensive. At EDINBURGH CAR SERVICES, our MOT tests start at just £40, and we can make booking your next test easier; just use our online booking form to choose a convenient date and time and we will confirm with you by return. Depending where you live or work, we can also come and collect your car, for a small fee, by appointment.
Incredibly, many motorists are still not aware of the crucial importance of wheel alignment, or see it as an inconvenient cost that can be skipped or postponed. Nothing could be further from the truth, and failure to ensure correct wheel alignment is just about the biggest false economy you can make where your vehicle is concerned.
We can take a look under the hood
The best way to avoid nasty surprises, either at MOT time or at the roadside, is to keep your vehicle in top condition by having it serviced regularly. As with wheel alignment, not doing so usually proves a false economy, because if relatively cheap components like filters and lubricants are not maintained it will increase the wear on more expensive parts of a car.
We can fine-tune your car
How does a DPF work?
As you drive, harmful exhaust soot starts to build up on the walls of your DPF filter, reducing performance and fuel efficiency. To keep the system clean, a process called ‘regeneration’ is used. This is when the exhaust temperature rises to 600°C and burns off the soot, keeping your engine free of harmful chemicals.
There are many factors that can stop this regeneration process from working effectively, such as the type of fuel and oil used, driving style and vehicle age and mileage.
Do I need DPF cleaning?
If you’re experiencing the following symptoms your DPF may need cleaning:
- The DPF warning symbol has appeared on your car’s dashboard
- Loss of power
- The automatic stop-start system isn’t working
- Poor fuel economy
- Cooling fans run more than normal
A new DPF system can cost as much as £3,000 at a main dealer, but in most cases, using a DPF cleaning product can rectify the problem. So, if you’re experiencing any of these symptoms, it’s important to get it checked out by a qualified technician as soon as possible to avoid costly bills.
Cleaning of DPFs system starts from £199 Inc Vat.
Prices may vary due to circumstances and conditions that Diesel particulate filters are put through and on many occasions the DPF is only a symptom of other problems within the vehicles engine management systems. At Edinburgh Car Services we are able to diagnose many fault’s on all makes and model’s of vehicles including full main dealer support for Volkswagen, Audi, Skoda, BMW, Land Rover, Renault, Citreon/Peugeot and many More…….
