MOT Class 4 and 7
We are proud to announce our brand new MOT test lane for class 4 and class 7 vehicles, fully equipped with everything we need to put your vehicle throught the test and ensure it complies with VOSA standards.
Here at NGM Garage our aim is to provide an alternative cost effective vehicle service to everyone. All of our parts used are of original eqipment specification, ensuring the warranty of your vehicle stays intact.
Over the years we have heard horror stories of people doing the “DIY” or using a “friend who is a mechanic” on the side of the road, resulting in necessary work not being carried out correctly. At NGM Garage, we strive to ensure our quality control is as good as, or better than that of the main dealers. So you can have peace of mind that all your servicing needs will be carried out with exceptional care
Legally the minimum tread depth for your car tyres is 1.6mm across ¾ of the tread around the complete circumference of the tyre. For safety reasons it is recommended that you replace your tyres before the legal limit is reached. Many vehicle manufacturers recommend replacing at 3mm. At 1.6mm in wet weather, it takes an extra car length (8 meters) to stop at 50mph, than if your tread was 3mm.
A regular check on your tyres can help you avoid 3 penalty points and up to £2500 in fines (per tyre) for having tyres worn beyond the legal minimum limit on your vehicle.
We have a fully automatic tyre fitting machine which can change tyres up to 22″ and balance so are running true. We supply tyres ranging from budget through to top named brands. So whatever your preferences, we can cater for you.
A vehicle brake is a brake used to slow down a vehicle by converting its kinetic energy into heat. The basic hydraulic system, most commonly used, typically has six main stages. The brake pedal, the brake boost (vacuum servo), the master cylinder, the apportioning valves and finally the roadwheel brakes themselves
Friction clutches, are by far the most well-known type of clutch. The purpose of friction clutches are to connect a rotating member to one that is stationary, to bring up to speed and to transmit power with little slippage.
For example, your vehicle engine >> gearbox >> roadwheels
Once your clutch has worn, there will not be enough travel in either the cable or the hydraulics to engage your clutch correctly, therefor causing it to slip and you will lose performance.
An exhaust system is piping used to guide reaction exhaust gases away from a controlled combustion inside an engine. The entire system conveys burned gases from the engine and includes one or more exhaust pipes. Depending on the overall system design, the exhaust gases may flow through one or more of the following;
- Cylinder head and exhaust manifold
- A turbo charger to increase engine power
- A catalitic converter to reduce pollution
- A silencer to reduce noise
In the internal combustion engine application, the timing belt/chain connects the crankshaft to the camshaft(s), which in turn controls the opening and closing of the engines valves. It has teeth to turn the cam and crankshaft in synchronisation and is specifically designed for a particular engine. In some designs the timing belt may also be used to drive other engine components and in diesels will drive the fuel pump.
