Just SOME of the recent issues we have fixed are:

Cheap Engine Diagnostic Toolcheap diagnostic

If you have an issue with your vehicle PLEASE don’t plug in a code reader from Ebay (or similar) and remove the codes! This is the worst thing to do and you may be able to turn the light off and drive a few more miles but you will definitely do more damage. The engine diagnostic light is on for a reason and it is there to warn you that there is an issue with the vehicle. Simply switching off the light has NOT fixed your vehicle, all you have done is switched off the warning (and probably deleted the trouble codes we need to correctly diagnose your issue).

We get more and more people who call our workshop saying “I want my engine management light turned off” or “I had one of the boys turn off my light for me”. This will not solve your issue and you are only making things worse! You need to correctly diagnose why the light is on and what has caused this in the first place.

We have years of experience and we are fully equipped to find out why your light is on and your vehicle is in “limp mode” so when this happens in future, simply pop in and see us or call us on 01792 477 555 for free advice and we will do our best to help you. Our Technicians have been trained to correctly use engine diagnostic equipment and we have invested heavily in our training programme and equipment to offer the very best service at the least cost to you.

Call us now on 01792 477555 to book your engine diagnostic or any other diagnostic repair work! 

Autumn Update & Free Vehicle Checkup

Autumn Update & Free Vehicle Checkup Service in Swansea

As Summer turns to Autumn and the boiling hot long summer of 2018 draws to an end, we at Swansea Tyre Clutch & MOT Centre would like to offer all our clients old and new a FREE Vehicle Checkup.

We often offer checkups during the change of season as this enables us to reduce the amount of repairs we need to carry out in “emergency situations”. This means that we are able to pinpoint any likely issues before they happen. More importantly, the vehicles we see are then made safe (should the customer want it) and we know that you are able to have trouble free motoring for the next few months.

Our FREE Check Up is a NO OBLIGATION check to ensure your vehicle is ready for the change of season and that you are fully informed of any issues that may arise so you can handle them before they become an emergency.

Our free check up includes:

  • 4 Wheel Laser Alignment check on our hunter alignment machine to ensure your tyres are wearing correctly and to prevent blow-outs on the motorway.
  • Windscreen Wiper Check and Screen wash Top Up to make sure you can see where you are going on dark nights.
  • Tyre Pressure, Condition and Tyre Depth Report so you know you are driving a safe legal vehicle.
  • All Levels Check (including Oil, Coolant & Brake Fluids).
  • Lights Check (Including Headlamp Aim).

If you would like to take us up on this free check, all you need to do is call us now on 01792 477 555 and we will book you in. The check up can be done while you wait and if we find anything wrong with your vehicle, we will video it and send it to your email and to your phone via SMS. You will then have the option to decline or accept any of the work needed.

Its simple as that! We will perform a complete check over of your vehicle while you wait FREE OF CHARGE!

DPF Light On – Anti Pollution Light On – Orange Light On Dashboard?

dpf light fix

DPF Light On? What Does it Mean?

When your DPF Light comes on, you can be assured that it will give you a shiver to your bones! The dreaded little light comes on and your vehicle may go into “limp mode”. This is when the car suddenly looses power and starts to “limp” to get you home.

DPF issues are one of the most common telephone calls we get into Swansea Tyre Clutch & MOT Centre. This is due to the Exhaust Gas Regeneration that is a part of the latest diesel engined vehicles aspiration process. A DPF (Diesel Particulate Filter) will filter particulates coming out of the engine to stop them entering the atmosphere. The only problem is, when you do lots of short journeys, the DPF does not get hot enough to regenerate (burn the soot and carbon off) and the DPF then becomes blocked.

We can fix this issue for you. The process depends on the type of blockage you have.

Soot Accumulation

Soot accumulation is cleaned using our on-car cleaning service. This is the natural accumulation that all DPF’s experience in general usage. The cost for this type of clean is £120 including VAT.

If you have been driving around for extended periods of time with the DPF light on, you may find that this process won’t completely clear the issue. On this instance, the only choice is replacement or off vehicle pulse cleaning.

On Car DPF Cleaning In Process

Ash Accumulation

This is normally down to poor servicing of the vehicle or low quality oil. We always advise using low ash fully synthetic oils. Unfortunately, this cannot be cleared whilst the DPF is on the vehicle. We will need to remove the DPF and pulse clean it or replace it.

If your DPF or Anti Pollution light comes on, simply give us a call on 01792 477 555 and we will give you free advice on what to do next.

Winter Check

Free Winter Check at Swansea Tyre, Clutch & MOT Centre

winter check

We are offering FREE winter check for all our valued clients. This will entail a full checkup to make sure your vehicle is ready for the long cold winter days! In recent years, there has not been a lot of snow on the ground. This is due to the rapid fall in temperatures in the winter (yes that’s right, it’s been TOO COLD FOR SNOW). Instead of snowfall, we have experienced ICE and sub zero temperatures which make travelling by car/van extremely dangerous.

Another issue when we have exceptionally cold winters is vehicle systems letting us down. Usually this can be batteries being dead, tyres going down or losing grip on roads and lights being too dim for the road ahead. We have decided at Swansea Tyre, Clutch and MOT Centre to offer all our clients the following checks COMPLETELY FREE OF CHARGE!

  • Tyre Pressure/Condition Check
  • 3D Laser Alignment Check
  • Lights Check (Including Headlamp Aim)
  • Battery Charge Check
  • Brake Check (On Rolling Road Test)
  • Antifreeze Strength Test
  • Washer Top Up
  • Oil Level Check
  • Wiper Blade Check

Should we find anything wrong with your vehicle, we will give you a written report. There is NO OBLIGATION to have any work carried out! We are just happy that we will be able to inform you of any issues before your vehicle lets you down on a cold and damp freezing night!

Should you wish to take advantage of this, simply call us on 01792 477555 and we will book you in for a time that suits you. This winter check service can be performed while you wait in our comfortable reception, where you are able to enjoy hot refreshments and watch your winter check being carried out on our CCTV system.

All free winter checks also come with a FREE thermal windscreen scraper!
