Vehicle Symptoms

Noises
Clunking and knocking noises
Clunking and knocking noises

Loud clunking and knocking noises are often heavy metal components suddenly coming into contact. A clunking or knocking noise indicates something has broken—or is about to—so it’s time to find out what it is, why it’s happened, and where it’s coming from.

To get your car back to its smooth and sound-free performance, first, you’ll have to pinpoint the problem. Fixter is ready to help. We’ve got the finest network of fully qualified mechanics ready and waiting to put any problem straight. It’s effortless and easy with our completely contactless end-to-end service.

Vibrations
Slipping clutch
Slipping clutch

If your car’s clutch has seen better days, is damaged or faulty, you may start to notice it ‘slipping’ when you change gears. This is a sign that the friction material on your clutch is wearing out and needs replacing.

With Fixter’s seamless, end-to-end service your car will be collected, taken to your local garage and delivered back to your home by our fully-insured drivers. You’ll be kept up-to-date from start to finish.

Vibrations
Rough, bumpy ride
Rough, bumpy ride

A rough and bumpy ride is typically down to problems with the suspension. If it’s not the suspension, then it’s likely to be either an issue with your wheels or tyres, your transmission or the engine.

To get your car back to its smooth and stable engine idling, first, you’ll have to pinpoint the problem. Fixter can help with that. We’ve got the finest network of fully qualified mechanics ready and waiting to put any problem straight. Get in touch today to enjoy our completely contactless end-to-end service.

Vibrations
Unstable idling
Unstable idling

A healthy engine idle rate is generally around 1000rpm. When your car idle rate fluctuates from lower than 600rpm to 1000rpm or over, jolts or shakes, or feels like it could stall at any moment, it’s likely there’s an issue with your ignition or fuel or air intake.

To get your car back to its smooth and stable idling rate, you’re going to need to pinpoint the problem. Fixter can help with that. We’ve got the finest network of fully qualified mechanics ready and waiting to put any problem straight. Get in touch today to enjoy our completely contactless end-to-end service.

Vibrations
Car misfiring
Car misfiring

If your engine is misfiring and/or failing to start, there could be several causes.

Our experienced mechanics can help solve your car problems with a car diagnostic. With our seamless, end-to-end service your car will be collected and delivered, contact-free by our dedicated drivers and you'll be kept up-to-date from start to finish.

Vibrations
Car pulling to one side
Car pulling to one side

If your car is pulling to one side whilst driving or when you brake, you’ll most likely need replacement brake discs or pads, or your car's wheels may need realigning.

Diagnose the issue here or if you’re still unsure, book a vehicle diagnostic check with our highly-experienced mechanics to get to the root of the problem.

Electrics
Dim headlights

They could be dirty, old, or not getting the power they need. The solutions could be new bulbs, a thorough clean, repair or replacing faulty batteries and alternators, or cleaning up your wiring.

To get your headlamps back up to maximum brightness, Fixter is ready to help. We’ve got the finest network of fully qualified mechanics ready and waiting to put any problem straight. Even better—it’s easy and effortless with our completely contactless end-to-end service.

Warning Lights
Engine Warning Light Diagnostic
Engine Warning Light Diagnostic

What is the Engine Warning Light?

The engine warning light also known as the ‘Check Engine Light’ or ‘Engine Management Light’ — more formally known as the malfunction indicator lamp — is a signal from the car's engine computer that something is wrong.

Engine performance
Loss of power
Loss of power

As the main driver, you know better than anyone how your car runs, so when it loses power, you’ll be the first to spot it. So why does your car lose power? Well, typically, it’s down to four main areas: fuel delivery, ignition, exhaust circulation, or engine issues. The final possible culprit is a faulty cooling system.

To get your car back to full power and its regular performance, first, you’ll have to pinpoint the problem. Fixter is ready to help. We’ve got a large network of top-rated mechanics ready and waiting to get your car back to its optimum performance.

Vibrations
Grinding gears
Grinding gears

Grinding gears can happen for a variety of reasons, including driver error, a worn out clutch or insufficient or poor quality transmission fluid. It’s important to address this symptom when it occurs, as it could be a sign of a more serious issue that may impact the drivability of your car.

Whether you need a clutch replacement, a transmission fluid flush and replacement or a car service, we’re here to help. Fixter offers collection and delivery, world-class customer service and access to our in-house experts to support you from start to finish.

Vibrations
Frequent stalling
Frequent stalling

We think of stalling as a classic (and often embarrassing!) rookie error. But frequent stalling can actually be a sign of mechanical issues or faults with your car, such as fuel problems, a faulty alternator or EGR valve or ignition problems.

Book a car diagnostic to help identify the cause of your frequent stalling. With our seamless, end-to-end service your car will be collected and delivered, contact-free by our dedicated drivers and you’ll be kept up-to-date from start to finish.

Electrics
Car aircon not working
Car aircon not working

The most common cause of a failing car aircon is that you’ve run out of refrigerant—topping it up is a pretty straightforward process. However, more serious problems stem from broken condensers and compressors or even faults in your car’s electrical supply or components.

Our Fixter mechanics have all the answers and can get your AC working as usual in no time.

Leaks
Fluid and oil leaks
Fluid and oil leaks

There are various different fluids that can leak from your car, which often leave a stain on the ground, or leave you forever topping-up a specific fluid. Find out how to identify possible leaks, and whether or not the leak could make driving your car dangerous.

Our experienced mechanics can also help you get to the root of the problem with a car diagnostic. Simply book online and we'll handle the rest!

Noise
Ticking noise coming from the engine
Ticking noise coming from the engine

When the timing belt wears out, it can cause a ticking or clicking sound to emanate from the engine. This sound can also indicate low oil pressure or a problem with your EGR valve.

Our experienced mechanics can help you get to the root of the problem with a car diagnostic. With our seamless, end-to-end service your car will be collected and delivered by our fully-insured drivers and you’ll be kept up-to-date from start to finish.

Noise
Loud car exhaust
Loud car exhaust

If your exhaust is blowing a gale—sounding like a Spitfire or an old crop-sprayer—it’s usually down to a hole that’s developed due to corrosion or decay over time, or where two pieces of the system have separated at their joint.

As well as loud, thundering noises, other tell-tale sounds of an ailing exhaust are hissing (cracks or leaks), chugging (blockages), and rattling (the exhaust is loose or misaligned).

Starting problems
Sticking ignition key
Sticking ignition key

A car key can get stuck in the ignition if either the key or ignition cylinder is damaged or warn, if your steering wheel lock is on, your battery is flat, or you haven’t properly selected ‘Park’ in your automatic transmission.

To get your key out, we’ve got a few handy tips for you. If it’s snapped off, or you need a professional pair of hands on the job, Fixter is here to help. We’ve got an excellent network of qualified mechanics ready and waiting to set your key free and get you back on the road.

Vibrations
Car shakes when braking

If your car is shaking when you brake, you'll most likely need replacement brake discs or pads or your car's wheels may need realigning.

Car engine overheating
Car engine overheating

An overheating engine typically results from a failing cooling system or a problem keeping the heat in the engine within its correct limits.

To prevent your car engine from overheating, first, you’ll have to pinpoint the problem. It’s more than likely something to do with the cooling system, but it could be any one of a handful of issues.

Vibrations
Spongy brake pedal
Spongy brake pedal

Figuring out why your car is burning more fuel than usual can boil down to a number of reasons. It could be a mechanical issue or down to your driving style and bad driving habits. Getting the best fuel economy boils down to two key factors: that your car is performing at its best, and you are too.

To achieve optimum fuel economy from your vehicle, you’ll have to pinpoint the problem. You may need a little more air in your tyres, new filters, a basic repair, or you might benefit from driving at lower engine revolutions and making wiser gear changes.

Electrics
Car radio not working
Car radio not working

A car radio can stop working for many reasons: from a lack of power, a blown fuse, faulty wiring, screens, tuners, speakers or displays, or you may just be locked out of your stereo’s security feature.

To get your car radio switched back on and the groove back into your journeys, first, you’ll have to pinpoint the problem. Fixter is here to help. We’ve got an excellent network of qualified mechanics ready and waiting to get the sound back in your speakers.

Noise
Grinding noise when braking
Grinding noise when braking

The grinding or scraping noise you can hear is likely to be caused by the brake caliper scraping on the brake disc.

Poor fuel economy

Electrics
Car heater not working
Car heater not working

Your car heating consists of a heater core, a fan, the coolant system, a thermostat, a selection of tubing and pipes, as well as its dashboard controls. If your heater isn’t operating as it should, then one or more of these components isn’t doing its job properly.

Any of the pipes or heater core could be clogged or blocked; there could be a problem with the power supply or electrical components, or you might even have a leak in the cooling system. To diagnose exactly what the problem is, you may need a mechanic to take a look under the bonnet.

Engine performance
Burning rubber smell
Burning rubber smell

There are plenty of rubber and plastic/rubber-encased components in your car. If any of them come into contact with hot pipes, or your exhaust or engine, they’ll release the smell you’d usually associate with the burning rubber of your tyres.

To pinpoint a burning rubber smell, Fixter has trained mechanics ready to diagnose every possible issue and get you back to trouble-free driving as soon as possible.

Noise
Clicking and popping wheel noises
Clicking and popping wheel noises

If you hear a clicking or popping sound coming from your wheels, chances are, it isn’t actually your wheels making those noises but your suspension or drive system. The most common cause of these sounds is damaged and dying CV joints.

To pinpoint the problem from each of the possible causes, Fixter can send an expert mechanic to diagnose your issues and get you back to trouble-free driving in no time.

Starting problems
Car won't start
Car won't start

It can be frustrating and stressful if you get in your car and it won’t start, particularly if you’re out and about. There are various reasons why your car might be struggling to start, and it can be hard to determine which issue you're dealing with.

Our advice will help you identify what’s causing your car to fail on you and if there’s anything you can do to get your vehicle going again.
