Diesel Engine Specialists

We take care for your vehicle

Fox’s Garage are diesel specialists called upon by private and trade customers alike for our wealth of experience and knowledge. With combined experience of over 50 years we are able to undertake vehicle servicing and repairs on all makes of diesel vehicles from the older in-line engines to modern common rail diesel engines.

The advanced technology of common rail diesel engines are controlled by an ECU (Engine Control Unit), so fault diagnosis is often only possible when tested with the latest diagnostic equipment in which we have invested.

 

Current emission laws and performance expectations require diesel engines to emit clean air in addition to being economical and with no loss power when compared to petrol equivalents. Our investment in technology and our highly trained staff enable us to diagnose any problems using our fuel injection pump, injector servicing and testing facilities.

Specialised Engineering Services

Broken stud removal, thread insert installation

Fox’s Garage offer a number of specialised services which make us stand apart from other motor garages. A problem which sometimes occurs when replacing parts on a vehicle is broken bolts and studs. We have the expertise and equipment to correct the problem at a modest cost.

We also provide a Diesel engine seized injector removal service on ALL vehicles including the Mercedes CDI range, Peugeot, Citroen HDI engines, Renault Traffic, Vauxhall Vivaro, Nissan Primastar without the need for cylinder head removal or replacement, saving on potentially large repair costs.

We can rebuild engines and fix engines on all makes and models of vehicles including performance cars, American automobiles, commercial vehicles, Japanese engines and classic and vintage marques such as MG, Triumph, Jaguar.

Our specialist equipment enables us to machine and rebuild at our premises so that no component has to leave our premises for cleaning, machining or assembly.  And our service includes the sourcing of parts which other engine service companies may find difficult to supply.

 

As well as repairing and replacing engines, cylinder heads, head gaskets, belts, pistons etc we are also adept at skimming engine blocks, skimming flywheels, reseating valves, re-grinding crankshafts and more besides.

MOT Testing

All makes and models

If you have a car that is more than 3 years old it will need an MOT test each year to ensure that it meets at least the minimum road safety and environmental standards. Without a valid MOT, your car insurance and road tax become invalidated and your car may not be road worthy.

Our MOT testing station is staffed by MOT experts who are fully trained and certified by the governing body, VOSA. We offer an MOT Pre-Inspection Service to avoid the potential of our vehicle failing the test and having to pay for the test a second time.

Pre-book your car and we can do an MOT whilst you wait in our comfortable reception area. MOTs take up to an hour, so book your car now for its own designated slot.

Brakes and Exhausts

All makes and models

Exhausts
A faulty exhaust may be indicated by noises underneath your vehicle, inconsistent engine revving, high fuel consumption or generally poor performance. From a simple loose bolt to a complete replacement we can repair your exhaust system or components according to your vehicle requirements, age and warranty requirements and your budget.

Brakes
We offer free brake checks to ensure that fluid levels, bearings, discs and drums are in satisfactory order. We can replace brakes on any make or model usually on the same day. Our aim is to ensure the maximum braking efficiency of your vehicle.

Clutch
We offer a free clutch check while-you-wait, so our experts will be able to diagnose whether your clutch is faulty before we begin any work on your vehicle. If necessary we can then provide a full DMF and clutch fitting service using only OE parts for all vehicle makes and models.

Vehicle Air Conditioning systems lose their effectiveness because they lose up to 10% of their gas each year and require servicing approximately every 24 months or 24,000 miles.

We provide an Air Conditioning check which demonstrates the system’s current efficiency and our comprehensive service includes temperature at air vents, gas quantity and pressure in the system, drive belt tension, condition of hoses and fittings, recharge of the refrigerant and cleaning out the system.

Air-Con is not just valuable in the summer months. The system creates dry warm air rather than the normal humid air from outside and this de-mists car windscreens more quickly.

Your car tyres not only provide essential grip on the road, but they effect drive quality, fuel consumption, safety and braking.

We provide new, replacement tyres from a range of leading manufacturers and sizes to suit any vehicle and budget with in-house tyre fitting, balancing and alignment to ensure the optimum running of your vehicle. We will also dispose of your existing used tyres at no extra charge.

We can supply a wide selection of quality tyres and alloys to fit cars, 4x4s, vans and light commercial vehicles.

We provide a vehicle breakdown recovery service for our private and trade customers as an when the need arises.

Wherever possible we will attempt to get you up and running again wherever you’ve broken down but if your car or commercial vehicle is not fit for use on the road we can transport it to our garage for servicing and even provide a courtesy car if the need arises.

 

We can also offer a home start accident recovery service.

So if you’re unfortunate enough to require roadside assistance, a wheel change, a jump start or you’re locked out, please feel free to contact us.
