Hang in there Gemmarc I'm sure someone on here will be able to help. I seems to remember someone looking about 6 months ago. I will look to see if I can find for you.

I know the garage in the Old Town is well respected I assume you have tried that?

The garage just down the street where Hostal Paris is located has a generally good reputation.  It's a few yards on from Hostal Paris on the other side of Calle de Magallanes street.
It's run, I believe, by a chap called Mark Owen.  The address of the garage is Calle Magallan, 17 and the telephone number is 971 865 698

Yes another vote for Mark - not the cheapest but good and nice to be able to explain in English the problem. I'm ok with ordering drinks but when it comes to overhead cam shaft in Spanish  ::)
Received a text today which read GNAB ~ I think that is bang out of order. It doesn't matter if the glass is half full or half empty - there is clearly more room for more wine. I feel sorry for people who don't drink. When they wake up in the morning, that's as good as they're going to feel all day.

The little garage ( Renault ) just before you get to the first roundabout to Alcudia has a good reputation . Mate speaks highly of them at get's car serviced there regularly.

We use a little garage near the car park/medical centre, just after the Colonya bank.  Unfortunately, I don't think they speak much English, but they're very helpful!
