A vehicle breakdown is the mechanical failure of a motor vehicle in such a way that the underlying problem prevents the vehicle from being operated at all, or impedes the vehicle's operation so much, that it is very difficult, nearly impossible, or else dangerous to operate. Vehicle breakdowns can occur for a large number of reasons. Depending on the nature of the problem, the vehicle may or may not need to be recovered to an automobile repair shop.

A "breakdown" is also referred to when a car stalls on the road. A vehicle stalls for a number of reasons ranging from a dead car battery, fuel pump, poor quality fuel, faulty electrical wiring, fuel pressure problems, overlooked leaks or missing caps.

We do have a recovery truck and can assist on road site or just recover the vehicle to the workshop for repair.


At w jj autos we take pride in our work, and we try to keep the cost down as much as possible.



Troubleshooting electrical problems can be a frustrating task, but it does not have to be if you keep a few simple rules in mind: Every circuit needs a power source; most electrical devices require a minimum voltage to function correctly; and all circuits require continuity. Consequently, most electrical problems are caused by low voltage (or no voltage), excessive resistance or a loss of continuity.
we have three different diagnostic machines, one just for SAAB'S (Tec2) and we have two other machines, snap-on solus ultra and laptop auto-com, so can read and program most vehicles.


By converting fuel into motion, the engine powers your vehicle. The key parts in an engine are spark plugs, valves, pistons, connecting rods, and the crankshaft.
if there are any faults with any of the key parts your vehicle will not run correctly or not run at all.
even gaskets or pumps can become an issue, we have the tools to fix your vehicle and keep you motoring.


A clutch is a mechanical device which engages and disengages power transmission especially
from driving shaft to driven shaft.
if under acceleration the vehicle is not moving as fast as it should and there is a burning smell, or the clutch peddle is getting too high at biting point, it probably means you need a new clutch and or slave cylinder.


A brake is a mechanical device that inhibits motion by absorbing energy from a moving system. It is used for slowing or stopping a moving vehicle, wheel, axle, or to prevent its motion, most often accomplished by means of friction.
when brake pads or discs are not replaced when needed the vehicle will not stop efficiently.
most vehicles now days have wear pad indicators and gives you warning when they need to be replaced, at that point we will check the thickness of the discs to make sure they are with in manufacturers minimum thickness and replace if necessary. 


air conditioning (also called A/C) systems use air conditioning to cool the air in a vehicle.
 A/C is the process of removing heat from a confined space, thus cooling the air, and removing humidity.
when the A/C no longer works it is usually due to lack of A/C servicing and probably needs re-gassing or there is a leak in the system.
we add leak dye to the system and test with Noz to check for leaks.
we can also do re-gassing.
