Air Conditioning Services

Here at Pitlane, we have fully qualified technicians that are able to carry out Air Con Re-gas and all Air Con repairs in Luton.

Air conditioning systems carry out two important functions. Firstly it will keep you and your passengers cool during the summer. The second is to de-mist the inside of the car during the colder months of the year. The Air Con system removes water particles from the air allowing the interior of the car to dry out and de-mist.

Just as with any other system in the car, the Air-Con system needs to be maintained. The Air con system can lose 10% of its refrigerant on a yearly basis giving a poorer performance and taking longer to cool the car down. To keep the performance of your Air Con at its best you are advised to have the system re-charged every two years. This will ensure that whatever the weather, your car’s Air Con will work at its best.

Your exhaust emissions system is the only means of channelling away those noxious fumes generated by your engine. An exhaust that has failed can lead to noxious fumes being drawn into the vehicle cabin and prolonged exposure to exhaust fumes can make a vehicle occupant feel drowsy, which could lead to an even greater danger. Therefore, a healthy exhaust system is critical if you are to maintain the health and welfare of the vehicle occupants and a quiet smooth running engine and optimum fuel efficiency.

When you bring in your vehicle for suspension services to our experts and technicians at Pitlane you get a complete system evaluation, which includes:

We thoroughly inspect all shocks, struts, and springs for signs of wear or damage. Replacing worn, damaged, or missing steering or suspension parts that are not performing as intended.

Why are suspensions important?

Suspension systems serve a dual purpose — contributing to the car’s road holding, handling and braking for good active safety and driving pleasure, and keeping vehicle occupants comfortable and reasonably well isolated from road noise, bumps, and vibrations.

How will I know there is a problem?

Symptoms of car suspension problems may include excessive bouncing and swaying, even at low speeds. The car may not sit level and may not handle well on the road. Sometimes these symptoms may be subtle and not become evident until you are in an emergency situation requiring a quick manoeuvre to avoid a collision.

Warning Signs:

  • Fluid leaking out of the shock or strut body
  • Shock or strut bodies are dented or damaged
  • Mounts or bushings are broken or worn
  • Cupped, uneven tire wear
  • Vehicle sways or leans on turns

Why should I do something about it?

Worn shocks can increase the time and distance it takes you to stop your car in an emergency situation. Industry experts estimate that worn shocks add, on average of 10% to your stopping distance. At any speed, that 10% can translate to a big difference in your ability to avoid an accident.

Timing Belts

Timing belt replacement is a “must-do” service which every car owner should know about. Maintaining your timing belt can save you from an unexpected breakdown and in extreme cases can help us avoid thousands of pounds in repairs.

Why should I maintain it?

Should the timing belt break, the potential damage and eventual costs can be huge. A broken timing belt can result in the engine being written off, resulting in a hugely expensive engine rebuilt.

What should I do?

To avoid expensive engine repairs, we recommend regular timing belt checks and replacement if any damage is found. Different vehicle manufacturers specify different intervals for timing belt replacement, usually between 40,000 to more 120,000 miles or five years – whichever is sooner. It is important to remember that if a damaged timing belt is not replaced, it could possibly break at any time resulting in costly engine damage.

Symptoms of Problems:

  • A high-pitched sound

As the timing belt wears out, it starts to produce a high-pitched shrieking or whirring sound. You should be able to hear this especially as you start the engine up. When the engine is idling you may hear the sound as well. If you think that you hear an unusual sound of any kind, it’s a good idea to stop your car and examine the engine.

  • Visual damage

You can also access the timing belt and inspect it visually. Spots of oil or coolant are signs that the belt is wearing out. A good, healthy belt should be entirely clean and free of these spots or other signs of wear and tear.

  • Difficulty starting up.

Timing belts that aren’t working will cause your vehicle to have a hard time starting up. If it takes several tries to get the engine to catch, there are many potential problems that could be responsible. The timing belt is one of the most likely

If you think your timing belt might be due for replacement, give us a call today with your vehicle details and mileage and we will let you know if and when your timing belt is due to be replaced. We can also detail the cost of timing belt replacement for you.

I have recently visited Pitlane in Sundon Park. This is my second visit within weeks, on both occasions i can honestly say that the staff have been great, they are a very welcoming, friendly and nothing is too much trouble. The second time I called in on the off chance they could look at it for me, it ended up being a bigger job than expected. I had to leave my car there and they drove me to my mums house and then collected me again once it was done. As I live in Northampton they made sure I had it back that night so I could go home. I really would like to say a big thank you to all at Pitlane nothing seems to be too much trouble and you go out of your way to help. I certainly would and will recommend you to anyone. Many thanks and see you in the future.

At last, a garage you can trust, honest, reliable and great service. We have been using them for about 4 years now and I would hate to go somewhere else. Great mechanics, and the service is excellent. The rest of my family use them now and they live in Flitwick and Bedford.
