Car Service and Repairs Ellon Garage
Croft Autotech Ltd is a motor vehicle service and repair garage located in Ellon, catering for cars and motorcycles of all types. Need a car service in Ellon just look below at what we can offer you.
Your Car Service, Car Repairs and General Maintenance
We cater for all vehicle makes and models when it comes to car servicing including new vehicles. Contrary to what the dealerships say our local garage can service a new vehicle and still hold its warranty as long as genuine parts are used as per vehicle manufacturer.
Seriously if we do your car service whilst it is still under your car manufacturers warranty your car warranty is still valid. It is the law of the land.
You do not need to pay those grossly expensive car dealership prices for a full car service or car repair when you use the Croft Autotech car repair clinic in Ellon.
We use high-quality parts and engine oils recommended by most major car manufacturers including audi/VW spec oils.
We always recommend that every car service should include checking the replacement interval of your timing belt. Replacement of timing belts or chains this are something which a lot of people tend to overlook or put off. This is mainly due to cost. However, having them replaced at the appropriate interval as part of your car service is simply looking after your best interests. A broken timing belt means a broken engine needing urgent repairs. Yes, it is still fixable but at a huge extra cost. Ask us to check it as part of your regular car service to save you additional expensive work later.
We can replace your car’s timing belt as part of your regular car service or as a separate job. It is up to you. However, if you’re in doubt about when your timing belt replacement is due feel free to call and we will be happy to look up the interval for you. However, if you are concerned, it may also be worth asking us to look at its condition as part of your next car servicing check up. Your car timing belt may already be deteriorating faster than what the car manufacturer would have expected.
Car Engine Diagnostics
We have invested in some of the best engine diagnostics available. That means we can cover over 30 different car vehicle manufacturers. Yes, think of Croft Autotech as your car tuning clinic in Ellon. We will provide a full medical diagnostic check up on all the most important parts of your car engine etc.
We all know how sophisticated and advanced electronics are in modern day cars. Our Specialist Diagnostic Software and associated inspection tools can sometimes save hours of fault finding the time. Obviously, this is helping to keep down our prices on all aspects of our car service.
Think about how athletes go to doctors clinics etc for medical diagnostics. In the same way, drivers come to Croft Autotech as your car tuning clinic in Ellon for the same diagnostic check. It is the same for car repairs. If you have a broken foot or arm you go to the hospital clinic. If your car engine is broken you come to our car repairs clinic here in Ellon to get it fixed.
Unfortunately, at some point in a cars life, the clutch will fail. When this happens will depend on how hard a life it’s had and how it has been driven.
Traditionally the engine’s flywheel used to be a solid mass, however, a lot of modern vehicles are now fitted with dual mass flywheels which have various moving parts. Although these newer types of flywheels do add to your car reliability they can still be troublesome. Again this depends on the history of the car. We have the know how and experience to be able to do these type of car repairs at a reasonable cost.
Car Engine Repairs/Engine Building Services

We do also cater for the motor sports enthusiast whether it’s for a one off track day or a competitive race car/bike. We have developed the expertise to run our own high-performance car clinic with all the facilities a top class owner/driver would want from his/her car.
It does not just stop at performance tuning we can even do the full ECU Tuning/Remapping exercise to make sure your car is running at its very best. Yes, when your car service has been done through our high-performance car clinic you know it will be in perfect condition and at a fair price.
Upgrading brakes is a must but also so is renewing the brake fluid on a regular basis. Many people overlook this and “boil their brakes”. If the fluid in your system is old it will have absorbed moisture vapour. When subjected to heavy use and sharp braking the higher temperatures will cause the brake fluid begin to boil and you will lose the ability to brake effectively. That is dangerous at all speeds! It is cheaper to change the brake fluid than to do expensive car repairs.
Car Handling Upgrades
In the same way, we can improve your suspension and car handling. This includes fitting coilovers or lowering springs.
Of course, most of our customers looking for performance upgrades are thinking in terms of performance engine tuning. We are in the perfect position to help you with that as part of a full car service programme. Our high-performance tuning software systems and professional training compliment each other to meet all your service need to improve your car performance and handling.
