Alongside car servicing and MOTs, our team of highly qualified and experienced car mechanics provide Oxfordshire motorists with all form of car repairs, from minor component fixes to complete engine rebuilds. Our Chinnor garage has become well known throughout the county and neighbouring Buckinghamshire not just for the excellent standard of work that we carry out, but the highly competitive prices that we offer. So if you’re a motorist in or around nearby Thame or Princes Risborough, for example, don’t hesitate to make the trip to us for quality car repairs that won’t break the bank.
We use the latest diagnostics equipment to get to the bottom of any issues that may be perplexing you, and only ever use OEM-compliant parts in the actual car repairs themselves. This is because we aren’t content with just keeping pace with other garages around Chinnor, Thame and Princes Risborough; we want to stay at the forefront of technology and be the first port of call for car repairs whether you drive a Mini or a 3.5tonne commercial vehicle.
Brakes & Clutches - When brakes or clutches emit strange noises or smells when applied, it’s usually an indication that something is the matter. Likewise, when you detect that either is less responsive than before, it’s time to seek professional assistance. Putting off visiting garages when suffering a brake or clutch related issue can be highly dangerous. Brake failure can lead to an accident, while abusing an unhealthy clutch could cause massive damage to your engine. So visit our Chinnor garage, just a short drive from Thame, Princes Risborough and many other major Oxfordshire locales, and undergo professional car diagnostics. We’ll get to the bottom of the issue and recommend the appropriate car repairs. It may be a simple case of replacing brake pads, but if we need to replace a clutch for example, we’ll quickly source and fit the replacement part in question to ensure you’re not kept off the road any longer than is absolutely necessary.
Wheels & Tyres – If you’ve noticed your vehicle is pulling to one side or you’re experiencing a bumpier ride than usual, it could be that your wheels aren’t aligned or there’s an issue with the axel. This is a good reason to visit MOTEC, leading choice amongst independent garages around Chinnor, Thame and Princes Risborough, as is if you tyres have suffered a puncture or similar structural damage.
If we can’t legally perform car repair on your tyres, because they are too damaged to still be road legal, then we can replace them with your choice of tyre. We stock a number of brands ranging in price from economy to premium, so whatever it is you’re looking for we can accommodate you.
Engines – The beating heart of your vehicle, the engine can seem impossibly complicated to the uninitiated. But MOTEC has over 30 years’ experience providing car repairs for engines of all shapes and sizes, in vehicles up to 3.5 tonnes. Whether it’s a simple case of your engine not starting anymore, an inexplicable loss of horse power, or strange noises emerging from your engine/exhaust system, we’ll get to the bottom of the issue. We use the latest and greatest car diagnostics equipment, which communicates with your engine’s on-board computer (ECU), feeding our mechanics fault codes which usually explain what’s going wrong. But in addition to this modern form of fault-finding, we’re well versed in traditional diagnosis, so if technology doesn’t help then a good old fashioned look under the bonnet will! Combining traditional and modern methodology is where we separate ourselves from many other garages around Chinnor, Thame and Princes Risborough.
Electronics – Vehicles of yore had relatively simple electronics, but modern vehicles are constantly pushing the envelope when it comes to innovation, incorporating new and exciting features within the dashboard. However, one drawback of adding these in is that there’s more that can go wrong with today’s cars in the electrical department; it’s not always the battery, alternator, starter or ECU!
Noticed an electrical anomaly? Visit our car mechanics and we’ll promptly figure out the type of car repair you require. It maybe be a simple tweak that’s laid out in your manufacturer handbook, or more complicated car repairs that require a little more expertise. Whatever the issue, we’re more than qualified to handle it, being one of the most technologically “switched on” garages you’ll find around Chinnor, Thame and Princes Risborough.
But these aren’t the only types of car repairs we specialise in. Our car mechanics can also take care of issues in all the following categories:
