Two types of engine failure

When it comes to roadside assistance there are two main types of engine failure. One happens while you are driving. The other when you attempt to start your vehicle.

Engine failure while driving

Your engine failing while driving can be quite stressful. As soon as you notice the vehicle loosing power try to get the car safely out of traffic. Maintain a safe distance from the road while you order assistance and wait for us.

Engine failure when you star the car

An engine struggling or failing to start means something has already happened to the engine. It could be as simple as the battery being flat but it could also mean something more serious is the cause.
