Local Car Servicing

I dropped the car off for an oil/filter change today at A.P.T.E.C. in Eastgate street. It is up the side of the A14 bridge next to the tanning salon. I had been thinking about having the cam/timing belt changed as well, but couldn't leave the car long enough with them today, because someone I work with needed a new engine recently. When I dropped the car off this morning at 07:45 nobody was there, and I put the key through the letterbox. I went back at 13:00 to pick the car up and they mentioned the timing belt job. They said "your car hasn't got a timing belt". "Hey, what's it got then ?" "a timing chain" "how long do they last ?" " as long as the car" Result !

So if your car needs a service call them on Bury 700856. Or alternatively Barry Keymer on Chapel Pond Hill (near Marlows) on Bury 767913 who are also independent car mechanics.

Had a problem myself with a timing belt, though Martin at http://www.halifaxbearings.com sorted me out. Stocks all sorts of dodge bearings too which is nice. :)
