Exhausts

We can supply and fit individual parts or the complete exhaust system, including the catalytic converter.

We cater for a wide range of vehicles. All exhausts are fitted by experienced mechanics, all exhausts are fully guaranteed.

Your exhaust is made up from a number of parts. It is likely that only one or two parts of the system will need replacing at any one time. Addison Tyre Centre can replace individual parts or the full system depending on what is required, but will only carry out work that needs to be done. It is advisable to have your exhaust checked every 10,000km (6,250 miles) or at least once a year for damage or failure.

Please call in for an inspection and a free quote.

The exhaust system is one of the hardest working components on your vehicle. It is constantly in use whilst the engine is running. An exhaust system on most vehicles usually comprises of four sections:

  • Manifold
  • Front Downpipe
  • Centre Section
  • Rear silencer box

Also on all vehicles registered after 1993 a catalytic converter is fitted. The most common section to become defective is the rear silencer as moisture gathers inside the box and attacks the metal. Corrosion from the inside results in hole, which causes the exhaust to blow. A defective exhaust will mean the vehicle fails the MOT test. It also causes excessive noise; thereby rendering the vehicle illegal which could lead to a fixed penalty fine. An unchecked exhaust may also result in fumes entering the car, which can lead to headaches, sickness and drowsiness.

Catalytic Converters

Catalytic converters are now fitted to all cars to remove harmful pollution from the exhaust gases. This expensive and high-tech component fits in the exhaust system and looks on the outside like a typical silencer box.

The catalytic converter is an integral part of the engine performance system and sensors control the gases entering and leaving the catalytic converter are controlled by the engine management system. The catalytic converter effectiveness is measured by testing the exhaust gas emissions. This is an important part of the MOT and service requirements on all cars today.

The catalytic converter can be damaged if the engine is not properly tuned and excess fuel or oils enter the component. If your catalytic converter or exhaust does become defective and requires replacing, we can provide a top quality replacement parts at significant saving to dealer prices.

With regular servicing and FREE checks we can keep your exhaust system legal and prevent any fumes from entering the vehicle. With our fully skilled mechanics we can diagnose any current faults or any faults that may occur in the near future and cause the exhaust or the catalytic converter to become defective.

Brakes

When it comes to brakes our experienced mechanics regard your safety as their main priority. It doesn't matter what make or model of car you drive, you'll get one of the most competitive quotes around whatever parts need replacing. It is absolutely essential to have the brakes system checked regularly, as failure will cause partial or total loss of braking. We only fit brakes that are made to original equipment standards meaning you are guaranteed the highest levels of safety as designed by your vehicle manufacturer. If required we can use original equipment parts which are main dealer supplied. E.g. Audi, BMW, Mercedes, VW, Ford, Vauxhall etc.

Oil Information

Low oil levels will damage your engine and you should always remember that your oil light won't illuminate until your oil level is already low.

Low oil levels can damage your engine by causing overheating and can even result in the engine seizing completely. You can counteract this by regularly checking the oil level in your car and using the correct grade of oil.

Using the correct grade of oil will offer your engine protection from the moment you turn the key, improve performance and increase engine economy.

Dawn

"I went to Addison for a puncture repair which was dealt with immediately and while I was there asked them to replace a front wiper blade and check a ball joint for me, the result was puncture sorted wiper sorted and ball joint fine no further work needed yet. It was impressive to find a company that was not trying to get me to have work done for their benefit. The service was impeccable with a full explanation of all work done which complemented the whole experience. Addison is guaranteed my custom again along with me recommending them to anybody I come across in need of their services, thank you"
