with Milton Auto Services
– recommended by most manufacturers to be carried out every two years.
As well as keeping you cooler in hot weather, a fully recharged system will reduce your fuel consumption by putting less strain on the engine.
We can check for leaks or replace faulty components
to make sure the system is running at its best.
Our extensive service includes a refrigerant recharge and replacement of lubricating oil, plus a comprehensive system components check.
We can also offer an anti-bacterial clean of the system to help remove 99% of bacteria from the system and help remove bad odours.
Driving with the warning light on means your airbags won't deploy in an accident
Airbag warning light
should only stay on when there’s a problem with the airbag system in the car. Every time you turn on the car, the computer in the vehicle checks the system. The light comes on for a few seconds and then goes off to show that it’s working. If it remains on, then there’s a problem with the system, and the airbag may not deploy in an accident.
At Milton Auto Services we can help you to deal with the airbag light by examining the system with the help of the car diagnostic internal system.
Avoid driving with an airbag warning light switched on. Milton Auto Services can help to fix this problem.
There’s no quick and easy way to troubleshoot the problem of an airbag warning light. Much like the Check Engine light, it should not be ignored and needs to be looked at by a professional. In this case we will use our specialist equipment to run a diagnostic on the airbag ECU
, or electronic control unit. This is where all the fault data is stored.
Avoid Driving if the airbag light is on, it means that the airbag will not be able to deploy in the event of an accident.

Stop your Catalytic Converter or Diesel Particulate Filter from being stolen
If you own a 4 x 4, Van, MPV or Motorhome you are particularly at risk of Catalytic Converter Theft. Thefts on these vehicle are more common because they generally have larger Catalytic Converters or Diesel Particulate Filters which have a higher scrap value for theives, but also because they have a higher ground clearance making access to and removal of the Cat that much easier and quicker.
‘s can help you to prevent theft happening so easily. CATLOC
is the UK’s leading Catalytic Converter and Diesel Particulate Filter lock manufacturer.
Prices of a fitted CATLOC are much lower than the cost of replacement components. We can fit the lock in a few hours, and we’re located just 20 minutes from Bristol.
We have a range of dealer equivalent systems to identify issues with your vehicle. A modern car can produce thousands of different fault codes. Having the correct diagnostics equipment is vital for identifying fault codes and warning messages.
Sensors in your vehicle continually report to the ECU (Engine Control Unit) on how they are performing. If a problem occurs, it logs a fault code on the ECU’s memory. A diagnostic system has to be used to read the fault or message and to clear any fault codes from the memory. Faults that create a fault code will not always activate a warning light, but may cause issues with your vehicle.
Many other garages use cheap fault code readers that allow them to erase the code temporarily. At Milton Auto Services
we use the code to help fix the underlying issue before erasing the error codes to prevent the fault returning
We provide our customers with a print out of the fault codes listed*
*Available on request

Prolong the life of your Tyres
(or ‘tracking’) refers to the angle and direction at which the tyres are set.
Hitting kerbs or driving at speed through a pothole can result in wheel misalignment. Poorly aligned tyres can affect road holding, increase fuel consumption and decrease the life of your tyres.
Watch out for these classic signs of wheel misalignment:
- Uneven tyre wear
- Steering wheel pull (the steering wheel pulling to the left or right when driving on an even surface)
If you spot the signs of misaligned wheels, book a wheel alignment today and our specialist team will correct the problem.
A sign that your tyres need changing is deterioration in performance. Your car may not handle or grip the road as well in poor weather conditions as it normally does, or it takes longer to stop when you apply the brakes. We recommend a weekly walk around the car to check the tread, look for bulges or wear and to check tyre pressures everytime you fill the tank.
It is the driver’s responsibility to ensure that the tread on your tyres is not worn beyond the legal minimum limit of 1.6 millimetres. To make this easier to identify, tyre manufacturers mould tread wear indicators (T.W.I) into the design of the tyres tread pattern. At Milton Auto Services we offer a wide range of tyre choice for fitting.
