Inline garage services technology

The modern motor vehicle is now built to a much higher standard of specification than in the early days of the car building process, with the many technological advances used within the automotive building procedure it has become necessary for the local independent garages such as ourselves to invest in the latest electronic diagnostic equipment to keep us as up to date as the large manufacturer workshops that offer the same service as ourselves but at a much higher price.

With this is mind Inline Garage Services Darlington have invested heavily in the latest electronic diagnostic equipment to assist our mechanics in the fault identification & subsequent repair of the modern day vehicle, as can be seen on the warning lamp chart within the reception area at the garage there are many different electronic sensors built within the vehicle that may present themselves as a problem whilst you are using the vehicle.

Vehicle warning lamp identification chart, you probably can’t see the relevant warning symbol on this image but we have the original poster displayed in our reception at Inline Garage Services Darlington.

Whilst the illuminated warning light will be easy to see & identify, the actual true cause of the problem will have to be identified by dialling into the many on-board computers housed within the vehicle to read the fault code to see what has caused the sensors to trip & illuminate the dashboard warning lamp.

If you have a warning light currently illuminated on your vehicle dashboard I urge you to call us 01325 483525 immediately to get your vehicle into the workshop & the fault identified before you cause possible severe damage to your vehicle.

Winter Driving

Like it or not British summer time has been & gone! (Sorry if you missed it)

As we enter the cold, dark, wet, windy and all together miserable winter period, The risk to you our valued customer whilst driving in theses hazardous conditions increases dramatically & we advise all of you to make sure you regularly check your vehicle to ensure it is in peak driving condition.

Make sure your wipers are working correctly & clearing your screen sufficiently, quickly & without leaving streaks and also ensuring your washer bottle is topped up with a good quality screen-wash additive to help prevent freezing of the fluid as it is being used.

Ensure all your vehicle lighting is working correctly so you can see & be seen on the dark winter morning & evening commutes, It is easier to check the lighting on your vehicle with another person checking the lighting functions are working on the exterior of your car whilst you operate the controls inside the car. Ensuring that any blown bulbs are replaced as soon as they are identified as being faulty.

Your tyres need to be of a legal minimum tread depth of 1.6mm across the central three-quarters of the breath of the tread and around the entire circumference. You can check your vehicles tyres tread depth easily with a common 20p coin, Place the coin in the tread and make sure the tread covers the edge running around the circumference of the 20p (Feel free to call into the garage with a 20p and we will demonstrate for you & invest the 20p for you into our coffee machine)  . Handling & performance of your vehicle will be effected below a tread depth of 3.0mm this is why will start advising you to think about changing your tyres from this depth.

The 1.6mm is the section of the coin that houses the writing & date around the edge

Tyres also need to be kept inflated to the correct setting as advised by your vehicle manufacturer in your model specific handbook, You need to check your Tyre pressure whilst your tyres are cold and adjust the psi as required.

Car Failed M.O.T & Decided it didn`t want to be crushed alive

The picture shows a car that had failed an M.O.T at a local garage & was being towed to the scrap yard to be crushed, On the way it burst into flames obviously deciding that it would rather go up in flames than have to go through the crusher.

Luckily the driver being towed escaped from the car before it was totally engulfed & took these pictures that he posted onto social network Facebook.
