Diagnosing issues early, could save you time and money!

We have come across it time & time again when people know they have a problem with their vehicle, and do nothing about it. Don’t wait until it’s to late. Some parts on certain vehicle can’t be purchased, so if its destroyed down to neglection or drivers abuse, you could find you’ll require a new Transmission at dealerships prices, or face surcharges on recondition units due to major hard part failure.

  • Delayed Engagements
  • Stuck in a certain gear
  • Gear lever not moving
  • Any lights on the dash (trans service)
  • Vibrations when driving
  • Notice any oil leak (after parking your vehicle) driveway?
  • Noise of any kind when in motion or stationary
  • Burning smell
  • Harsh shift engagements
  • Plays up when cold
  • Plays up when warm
  • Missing certain gears
  • Juddering
  • Bumpy shifts
  • No power
  • Gear selection indicator missing or flashing on dash info

All the above are common signs of driveline problems, whether its your Transmission, differential, Haldex unit or 4wheel drive unit.

Yours, your families, and other road users safety should be your first priority, so get these issues resolved otherwise someone could get seriously injured. Get issues resolved at the early stages. Some intermittent faults may need to develop.

What customers say about STL...

I found the STL team including Martin and Simon to be very professional and informative. Having just brought a car with what i thought was a noisy wheel bearing they soon diagnosed a rear diff issue. Within 2 days they had the car in, fixed and returned to me. I would recommend STL for their service and expert knowledge which i have found second to non. Many thanks guys.

Chris B - BMW X1 - Kettering

Very impressed with the service. Vehicle came back immaculate, hand washed as well, so no scratches from cheap car washes. Good turn around time considering some parts came from the states.

Mr Spacey - Honda Jazz - Southampton

Great Great Great service, such a well organised firm. Always got back to me whether it was good or bad news, I hate companies that lie and leave you in the dark. fantastic job. Vehicle drove better that new.

Mr Peterson - Nissan Qashqai - Leeds

Vehicle had been in with two other garages (so called specialists) that couldn't fault the vehicle. Signature said they might need the vehicle for a few days to get the fault to occur. it did once, but knew what the fault would be instantly. Fine job Lads Thank you!! Definitely recommend.
