  • Another Customer’s Mercedes Benz S300 transmission gear’s issue has been resolved

    Hi Everyone,

    Every time a warning icon lights up on your dial when the engine is on, it tells you that something isn’t right in your automobile and needs immediate attention.

    Some of the warnings are minor issues and could be resolved quickly (for example, door(s) not shut properly).

    However, when major issues are detected, it is safer not to drive.

    We hope you enjoy viewing the following photos.


    A Mercedes Benz S300 was in such distress. The transmission gears were unable to engage and the car had to be towed to our workshop.

    Following our skillful diagnosis, we promptly pin-pointed the fault to the gear-box. In normal circumstances, the same fault codes in a similar engine checks by others may merit replacement of a complete set of valve-body.

    However, our experienced technicians knew it was only the electronic transmission control that was faulty.
    We replaced it and resolved the gear issue. The transmission gears could now be engaged – smoothly!

    We felt a sense of satisfaction to see the delight in our customer’s face. He was grateful that we had not only swiftly solved his gear problem but we also saved him substantial sum of money had he been advised to replace the whole set of valve body.

    Letting a workshop with integrity (especially with your best interest at heart), to repair your car is an important consideration.

    If you have any issue with your gearbox or any part of your car, do feel free to contact us. We will always serve you with the best of your interest!

  • An Audi A7 arrived at Revol Carz Garage for the Gear control unit issues

    Hi Everyone,

    Before we share another blog about a gearbox that was recently overhauled by our specialists at Revol Carz Garage, we would like to share with you some useful tips on maintain your gearbox to its pristine condition.

    • Always perform regular checks for leakage of auto transmission oil from oil pan.
    • Maintain the required transmission oil level in the gearbox. Without sufficient transmission oil level might create overheating.
    • Replace the auto transmission oil regularly according to the recommendations in the car maintenance manual. Although some transmission oil manufacturers may claim that their transmission oil can lasts the car’s life time, the oil lose its viscosity over time resulting in overheating. There is always a shelf life span for oil.

    We strongly believe that following the above maintenance recommendations could not only prolong the lifespan of your auto transmission, and also maintain its efficiency.

    If you notice something unusual on your car, feel free to contact us for a no obligation check and assistance for early breakdown prevention.

    It is wise to know that many major and expensive repairs can be avoided if the vehicle is properly maintained and checked regularly.

    Today we have another Audi A7 who is facing gear engagement issue and entrusted his beloved car to us for the diagnostic.

    Our professional technician confirmed the issue lies with the mechatronic – Gear control unit and work begin swiftly.

    We hope you enjoy viewing the following photos.

  • Another Customer’s Volkswagen engine problem has been resolved

    Hi Everyone,

    Has your Volkswagen engine experienced intermittent vibrations, loss of power, fault codes lighted up or even stalled engine during driving?

    Despite that your previous workshop had your ignition coils and spark plugs replaced, the problem remained?

    Through recommendation, the customer sent his Volkswagen to our workshop with these problems. Our professional technicians performed various tests and confirmed the pistons were faulty.

    We recommended engine overhaul and replace the worn pistons to resolve the problems completely. This would not only solve the vibrations but the car runs smoothly like new again.

    If your car encounters similar issues or if it feels abnormal, it is time to have it diagnosed by professionals before adverse damages set in.

    We hope you will enjoy viewing the following pictures.

    We commenced work swiftly to reduce the down time so we could return the car sooner to the owner.

  • We are extremely happy and privileged to receive another compliment from one of our happy customer- Mr Li

    Hi Everyone,

    Is your car experiencing high consumption of engine oil?

    It is daunting having to top up the engine oil regularly. Besides, it is also damaging for the engine to be always running short of oil.  Low oil level means the engine is subjected to more rapid wear and tear.

    Today, an Audi A4 with such problem drove up to our garage.  The owner consulted us to solving his car’s problem of heavy consumption of engine oil.  He had to top up every 800 km.

    On inspection, when there isn’t any external oil leakage, the problem generally lies inside the engine.

    Although, in the previous email broadcast, we mentioned that we resolved engine oil consumption issue by replacing the valve seals on a BMW, the issue on the Audi’s problem is more complex.

    The solution for the Audi was to overhaul the engine including replacement of the worn out pistons, valve seals and other related parts too.

    This not only solved the high consumption of engine oil but also enable the car to run faster and smoother like new

    Mr Li Testimional-

    Here’s an exhilarating shout out for Gavin and his fabulous team! You guys are simply competent. 

     Special thanks for resolving my nightmare of insane high engine oil consumption on my Audi A4.

     I have been topping up my engine oil for every 800km.  It was really very annoying. 

     I had been inquiring around for a solution and all had was advice to overhaul the engine.  

     I finally narrowed  down to two workshops. Then decided to proceed with the repair by Gavin and team based on their consistent working standards and reliability.  

     I was pleased that they even arranged a rental car for my convenience during the repair. 

    It has been a peaceful ten months since my engine was overhauled.  I didn’t have to top up a single drop of engine oil.  Yes, not a drop!  Amazing isn’t it?

     It was a huge relief for me so I am inclined write this testimonial as an appreciation token. 

     Huge thanks and thumbs up to Gavin and his team for his excellent and extraordinary  service. 

     You guys are Aces of the trade and I’ll surely be back for regular car maintenance services too. 

     Keep up the great works!

     Your satisfied customer,

    Mr Li
