Full and partial engine repairs require the skills of time-served mechanics and technicians with a wealth of experience in working on all manufacturer marques. At Salek’s Motors of Southampton, we perform manual and automatic gearbox repairs to keep cars running safely and at an optimal level of performance. Our team also specialises in gearbox reconditioning and replacement with the backing of a full parts and labour warranty.
Simple engine repairs, such as the replacement of an alternator, a starter motor or a water pump, require a more traditional blend of mechanical skills but more advanced manual and automatic gearbox repairs require knowledge of transmission systems, timing belts, valve systems and car diagnostics. Not all workshops in the Southampton area work on full engine rebuilds but we’re happy to include large-scale repairs in our wider range of garage services.
Should you need an engine or gearbox replaced, we help by sourcing new and reconditioned systems from our own nationwide network of trusted suppliers. This is particularly useful when customers come to us for engine repairs and replacements with a budget in mind.
In the world of manual gearbox repairs, mechanics pay strict attention to component, axle and differential issues. Our ability to recondition engines on all makes and models sets us apart from dealership garages in the Southampton and Hampshire areas. Because the gearbox ties in with the rest of the transmission system, we help in resolving issues such as poor gear selection and jumping, and problems with crunching noises during gear changes.
Mechanical engine repairs understandably account for much of what we do with this type of work, but manual gearbox repairs can include the replacement of clutches and cables.
A faulty gearbox affects the entire operation of your vehicle. Because it plays one of the most significant roles in how a car performs, the gearbox has to be in optimal condition at all times. Book in for engine repairs or manual gearbox repairs at our popular workshop in Southampton and we’ll have your vehicle performing to the best levels in no time at all.
Compared to work on a manual transmission system, automatic gearbox repairs require a different level of knowledge from your mechanic. Manual cars use a shift system where the driver changes gear whereas an automatic gearbox relies on the vehicle changing gears automatically based on driving speeds and RPMs. Many of our customers in Southampton and Hampshire opt for automatic cars because they’re that little bit easier to drive.
The technicians at Salek’s Motors have extensive experience in manual and automatic gearbox repairs, and can help in resolving issues no matter which type of car you own.
Engine repairs in automatic cars include a full service of moving parts, the replacement of filters and an oil change. Much of our work in the field of automatic gearbox repairs stems from inadequate servicing or not booking in for a service at all. This affects the viscosity of oil once it warms and eventually starts to wear down working components prematurely.
Booking in for full and interim car servicing at our premises in Southampton is by far the best way to avoid expensive engine repairs and gearbox repairs at a later stage.
