  • A Volkswagen Golf A7 arrived for engine misfiring issue

    Hi Everyone,

    If your car’s engine stalls or misfires, it may be symptoms pointing to a faulty or failing ECM.

    An illuminated Check Engine light is another possible symptom of a problem with the ECU when the computer detects a problem with any of its sensors or circuits. The symptoms may not appear to have any sort of pattern to their frequency or severity.

    An engine control unit (ECU) or engine control module (ECM) controls a series of actuators on an internal combustion engine to ensure optimum engine performance.

    The ECU plays an important role in the performance of the engine and any issue with it can cause problems with the overall function of the car. Computer systems in modern cars are getting more sophisticated and can be difficult to diagnose.

    A Volkswagen Golf A7 which experienced an engine misfiring issue arrived at Revol Carz Garage for inspection and our professional diagnosis revealed a faulty ECU module.

    The issue was promptly resolved with replacement of an original ECU.

    We hope you will enjoy viewing the following pictures.

  • A BMW 730i arrives for a total gearbox overhaul.

    Hi Everyone,

    The gearbox (transmission) is one of the most vital components of any vehicle. Shifting problems or sudden skip in the gear can be a cause for concern. The transmission of the vehicle is subjected to wear and tear due to exposure to extreme heat and frictions.

    The Mechatronics module performs complex shifts operations. The gearbox control communicates constantly with the engine control unit and the “communications” determines the ideal point at which to make a gear change.

    In short, the Mechatronic components represent the brain of the gearbox.

    1. Surging in Drive gear.

    3. Lurching off the line from a stop

  • An Audi A8L arrived for Air matic pump and Air matic valve replacement

    Hi Everyone,

    The luxury Audi A8L dream car comes with Air-matic that can change the suspension settings from comfort to sport mode in seconds with a push of a button.

    The vehicle level is continually monitored and re-adjusted whenever there is a difference of +/- 20mm and adapting to the road conditions and driving style. When the vehicle reaches 65 km/h it lowers the center of gravity closer to the ground, improving handling, cornering, vehicle lift and reducing drag.

    The following are signs and symptoms of suspension problems.

    1. The instrument cluster lights up the “Air Suspension Failure” warning.
    2. A warning, “STOP VEHICLE, TOO LOW” lights up.
    3. Air suspension compressor failed.
    4. Failed Air Strut
    5. Leaking lines
    6. Faulty relay or Blown Fuse

    In a more severe case, if the Air-Matic suspension drops too much or collapsed, the car will be able to drive.

    We hope you will enjoy viewing the following pictures.

  • BMW 640i arriving for BMW Timing Gear Replacement

    Hi Everyone,

    The function of your BMW timing gears is to allow the camshaft and crankshaft to turn the timing chain. The pistons are moved up and down by the turning of the crankshaft which also allows the intake and exhaust valves on the cylinders to open and close. These components are important for optimum engine timing.

    As the piston moves downward, the intake valves open to allow fuel and air into the cylinders. As the piston moves upward, the exhaust valves open to expel exhaust air from the cylinders.

    If the intake valves are not functioning properly, the correct air/fuel mixture will be able to enter into the cylinders. If the exhaust valves are not opening and close properly, exhaust air will be trapped inside the cylinder.

    If the timing gears are failing, the valve timing and ignition timing will not be accurate. Noises from the engine compartment may occur, causing the engine to run rough, backfire or stalled.

    We hope you will enjoy viewing the following pictures.

    The BMW 640i was towed to Revol Carz Garage for diagnosis.
     

    The car was lifted for accurate diagnosis and thorough safety and functional inspection.
     

    The original BMW parts spread next to the worn-out ones, ready for replacement.
     

    The new timing gear set was professionally replaced by our BMW specialists.
     

    The timing gear replacement job was completed after our QC team successfully conducted a running test.

    Preventive maintenance is always better than repair. It is important to understand about wear and tear before the components break down totally.

  • How We resolved Mr Roshen ABS Pump & Gearbox issue and helped him to save money on his repair cost!

    Hi Everyone,

    Thank you for visiting this page and you may wish to click on read more at the bottom of the page to view more similar cases!

    Besides providing our expertise in resolving car issue, Transparency and honesty are top 2 most important core value too!

    We thanks Mr Roshen for his testimonial and we hope you will enjoy viewing the following photos!

    I am inclined to write this testimonial as a way of expressing my heartfelt gratitude to Gavin and his remarkable team at Revol Carz Garage for the great job of permanently resolved my car issues and saving me a huge sum of money too.
    Whilst I was driving along MacPherson Road area recently, my ABS warning light came on. I panicked and promptly drove to the AD (Authorised Dealer) workshop in the vicinity for a check.

    The diagnosis revealed a faulty ABS pump. The gearbox overhaul was recommended due to auto transmission oil leakage.

    The quotation by the AD was shockingly high so I contacted Gavin at Revol Carz Garage for a second opinion.

    After a thorough check by their professional team, it indeed pointed to the faulty ABS pump. Conversely what surprised me was that overhauling the gearbox was unnecessary as the oil leak could be resolved by just replacing two broken screws in the transmission housing.

    The ABS pump was replaced promptly however when I left the workshop, I still had lingering doubts despite Gavin’s assurance that there was no need for the gearbox overhaul as opposed to the diagnosis at the AD.

    Several months had already passed since my car was back on the road. Indeed there was absolutely no more oil leak and my auto transmission has been faithfully running smoothly.

    I found it rather rare to find a workshop like Revol Carz Garage for such professionalism and integrity. They place the customer’s interest first and offered me an honest quotation despite knowing the AD had quoted me so much higher. For that, they have saved me a whopping $6,000 plus

    I have nothing but praise and high regards for Gavin and his professional team. I shall definitely be your long term customer for many years to come.

    Revol Carz Garage is highly recommended!

    Mr. Roshen Joseph


     

    Mr. Roshen came to Revol Carz Garage after he received a shocking quotation amounting to over $9,000 for resolving his car’s issues. He had sought our second opinion.

    As quoted by the dealer, there was a fault code of the anti-brake system failure and an auto transmission fluid leakage which needed an overhaul.

     

    At Revol Carz Garage, our diagnosis similarly concluded that it was indeed the anti-brake pump system failure and auto-transmission leakage.

    However, our sharp-eye and experienced technicians had also discovered the actual cause of the oil leak which thus saved the owner substantial sum of money. We managed to resolve the issue for substantially less than the overhaul rate quoted by others.

     

    The culprits were two broken fasteners. Broken fasteners are common occurrence of wear and tear overtime due to constant vibrations. Over tightening and using improper tools would also damage the threads.
     

    We are glad to be able to resolve Mr. Roshen’s car issues and most importantly saving him a huge sum of money of the cost compared to the quotation by other workshops.

    If you do encounter similar car issue, please feel free to contact us for a second opinion with a no obligation assessment. Our honest and accurate diagnosis could save you unnecessary overhaul and saving you the distress and money lost to unscrupulous workshops.
