Car Diagnostics

Got a fault light on? Experiencing computer problems with your car? Come and see us. We have the expertise and equipment to diagnose the underlying issue, first time.

There’s more to our diagnostics service than hooking your vehicle up to a computer. Car diagnostic tests help determine issues within your vehicle’s engine, transmission, exhaust system, brakes and other critical components.

A diagnostic evaluation shaves hours off the repair process by removing the need for a full manual inspection and lets us quickly get to the root cause of your vehicle’s issues.

One fault code can have multiple causes. Once we know the code, we set about finding what’s causing it, then we fix it.

Our diagnostics equipment works on almost all makes and models of car, even newer models that rely on increasingly complex systems. 

In fact we have the same equipment and skills as you would find in a BMW, Audi, VW, Land Rover, Jaguar and Mercedes main dealer. 

So if you want the best car diagnostics in Northampton, at a competitive price, choose Roade Main Garage.

For a top-quality suspension service in Northampton, come and see us at Roade Main Garage.

If your ride feels uneven, you’re having difficulty steering or you feel every bump in the road, it’s likely your vehicle’s suspension is damaged.  Driving a car with a damaged suspension causes you to lose control of your vehicle and increases your brake speed, putting you at risk.

We check your vehicle’s springs, shock absorber, ball joints, bushes and anti-roll bar linkages to make sure the entire suspension system is functioning correctly.

Bumps on the road can easily damage other parts of your vehicle if your suspension isn’t working properly. If you’re not careful you can end up spending a small fortune in repair costs.

Your wheel alignment can also be affected by a damaged suspension. We’ll straighten it back up for you when you bring your vehicle in.

Need your car bulbs changing in Northampton? Pop in and see us at Roade Main Garage, your local independent garage. 

It’s illegal to drive a car with faulty lights. So if you’re having issues with your lighting, we need to check them immediately. And whether your lights are bulbs or LEDs, we’ve got the tools and skills to deal with them.

Sometimes your bulbs seem to work perfectly but your bulb failure warning light comes on. It’s tempting to ignore the warning light when this happens. Don’t. It’s there for a reason. If the failure warning light is on, you have a problem, even if it’s not obvious.

We regularly have to repair car lights for customers who have changed their bulbs themselves and accidentally damaged them in the process.

Unless you’re 100%  certain you know what you’re doing, please don’t change your light bulbs yourself. Come down to our Northampton garage and we’ll take care of it for you. It stops a simple, cheap fix from turning into a pricier repair.

We’re one of the best around for a quality DPF service in Northampton.

Your diesel particulate filter (DPF) is one of the lesser-known components of a vehicle. If your DPF light has lit up, you might be wondering what it is.

Your DPF’s job is to trap soot from the exhaust gas in a diesel engine. The EU regulations brought them in to pass emissions tests. So if there’s a fault with your DPF, such as plumes of black smoke coming from your vehicle, you must get it fixed or risk being hit with large fines.

DPF failures are normally caused by faulty EGR (exhaust gas return) valves, faulty fuel injectors, a faulty turbocharger, using the wrong oil or too many short journeys.

DPFs are designed to burn away built-up soot. However, they sometimes get blocked. When you bring your vehicle to us, we’ll burn the soot away so it doesn’t get blocked again.

Get your vehicle checked the moment your DPF light comes on. Otherwise, the light will eventually begin flashing which almost certainly means expensive repairs.

Hearing a ticking noise inside your car? Noticed an oil leak? Engine won’t start? The culprit could be your cambelt.

A cambelt is essential for keeping the different components in your engine secure, and in sync. Maintaining this component is crucial for the health and longevity of your engine. Overuse can lead to stretching or snapping, in turn, causing irreparable damage to the engine. And we don’t need to tell you that a new engine is pricey.

As part of our comprehensive service, we review the cambelt to assess whether there’s any wear and tear, and provide an estimate of its service life based on its condition. If we recommend a replacement, our highly trained technicians can fix it right away.

    First visit to Roade main garage for a brake fluid change, and I have been very impressed with the customer care, quality of work and the facilities. A lot of main dealer could learn a thing or two. Would recommend to fellow Mini owners to use them. Additionally they are very competitively priced to a Mini dealer and have the OE equipment for service history. Looking forward to my next visit.... Read More

    Used road main garage to diagnose an oil leak on my land rover Freelander. Everybody I spoke to was very informative and helpful. They took the time to explain the fault and give me options that were in my best interest rather than most garages trying to just get your money! They have alot of knowledge when it comes to Landrovers and are very honest. Will be using again in the future
