If you are having problems with your cylinder head this can manifest itself in many ways and too many to simply highlight here. Clearly repairs to a cylinder head are not the cheapest mechanical repair on a car given it requires the mechanic to disassemble the top half of the engine, assess the damage, complete the repairs and then replace the head gasket. Grease Monkey Garage in Cheddar specialise in cylinder head repairs and our prices start at just £295 although prices vary considerably based on the make and model of your car and the work identified as part of the disassembly. The price we quote will obviously include a replacement head gasket..
As part of the cylinder head removal and inspection we will check the valves, valve guides and valve seats. In addition we will check the cams, rockers and lifters. Valve seats may have to be re-cut, the cylinder head may have to be refaced and valve guides may have to be restored or replaced. The entirety of the work can only be estimated following disassembly although most customers opt for a complete rebuild and we can quote for this in advance.
If you are unsure if your engine problems are related to a leaking head gasket or something more serious requiring an internal inspection of the component parts of your cylinder head bring your car in for an initial diagnosis.

We appreciate that the terminology used by different manufacturers to describe their vehicle service schedules can be a touch confusing. Our aim is to steer you in the right direction. Most manufacturer will provide a schedule for each type of service and we would recommend that you keep to these schedules, even in your vehicle is out of warranty. Failing which we would recommend a service every 12,000 miles or 12 months to improve your chances of trouble-free motoring.
Services are invariably described using the following language:
The latter will involve following the manufacturers schedule and specification in terms of service and parts. This type of service is essential if your vehicle is within the manufacturer’s warranty period.
But don’t worry, we will go through the various options available to you based on your needs, those of the vehicle, any specific manufacturer requirements and, of course, your budget. We can also offer a brake fluid service, air conditioning service and scheduled cambelt changes.
Even if you keep to the manufacturers recommendations vehicle parts will inevitably require maintenance, repair or replacement. After all, nothing lasts forever and here a Grease Monkey Garage we can deal with these issues on your behalf. Sometimes it may only require a little tweaking or adjustment but whatever the issue we can, following your instruction, get on with resolving the issue.
For smaller jobs we offer a 'Drop 's Go' service where you can leave your vehicle with us in the morning and collect it on your way home. Alternatively, subject to availability, we can provide a courtesy car for the duration of your repair.
Our servicing, repairs and replacements are not limited to the following but, these are the most common areas where our expertise is sought.
Our range or repair services also includes: Engine & Gearbox rebuilds, alternators, water pumps, starters etc.
The key to reliable motoring is a good maintenance regime and dealing with issues before they become expensive. All vehicles are subject to wear and tear and an MOT only covers the legal minimum standard for the road and, inevitably, it does not cover everything on your vehicle. Early, pre-emptive repairs can often prevent much larger expenses later or a complete failure. Whether you have a family vehicle, business vehicle or operate a fleet, we will be more than happy to maintain your vehicle or vehicles.
We can complete any of the following;
We can complete retrofits on most mechanical or electrical parts. Let us know what you need
For fleet operators we can, subject to negotiations, keep a selection of routine maintenance parts 'on the shelf' such as mirrors, bulbs, batteries etc.
