Air Conditioning


Like most aspects of car maintenance, treating a problem with your vehicle’s air conditioning system early can help prevent major repairs. For example, an air conditioning system operating on low refrigerant due to a leak will eventually damage the compressor. Replacing or repairing the compressor can be more expensive than sealing the leak and refilling the refrigerant. Some symptoms to beware of regarding a faulty air conditioning system include an inoperative fan or blower, an unusual amount of noise during regular operation, and, of course, reduced cooling capability. Stale smelling air is another sign that something is wrong with your vehicle’s air conditioner. A clogged compressor, evaporator, condenser, or expansion valve can contribute to AC system failure. Routine maintenance now can help you avoid major AC repairs down the road.

Visually inspect:

  • A/C hoses
  • Compressor
  • Condenser
  • Drive belts
  • Check static system pressure
  • Check operating pressures
  • Check outlet duct temperature
  • Check operation of blend door/heater control valve
  • Check operation of blower motor and vents
  • Check operation of radiator and condenser fans(s)
  • Check for leaks with electronic leak detector
  • Analyze data and recommend necessary repairs
