Shiremoor Car Services

How A Clutch Works
The clutch creates a connection between your engine and the drive wheels on your vehicle. In order to keep the engine running while the car is stationary or in stopped in traffic you need to be able to disconnect the driving force from the wheels. Also to keep the engine running efficiently; gears allow you to match engine speed with road speed without having to over-rev the car while driving.The clutch, also allows you to choose a gear on manual cars

Hydraulic Clutch - Master and Slave Cylinder

There was a time when an auto electrician just needed a good multimeter when your Car Won't Start while todays modern computer controlled ECU-CANBUS systems mean that something can fail and other circuits can help out for a while to keep the car running. In order to help diagnose electrical problems; the systems present a readable fault code which can give vital clues to what needs repairing or replacing so if you have broken down or can't get your car started in the Shiremoor, Backworth, West Allotment or Holystone area you may need roadside recovery services to take you to a nearby garage or help from a mobile mechanic or mobile auto electrician to see if your car can be repaired in-situ

Replacement Battery
Providing the problem is due to a failing battery it's often possible to jump start your car, leave it running for a few minutes and drive to an automotive parts dealer with a suitable replacement battery. If you phone ahead then they can have it ready for you; otherwise get a friend or colleague to collect it for you and replace at home. Certain audio systems may need you to re-enter the codes if the battery has been disconnected

Breakdown Recovery for Shiremoor
If you have the appropriate policy from the AA, RAC, Green Flag etc, they will have your car collected and taken to a garage of your choice, if not, ask the mechanic repairing your car if they can recommend someone as you may get your car picked up for less. At-home repairs can also be undertaken but greatly depend upon where the fault is located - Common causes of electrical "No Start" problems can be attributed to a faulty Alternator or starter motor which can sometimes be difficult to remove and replace if engine access is limited
