Need your car's A/C repaired?

Living in Arizona, one of the most important things your car needs is a proper working A/C. We have compiled a list of common questions that you might have about your A/C. If you are having any issues with your vehicle, please call (888) 927-0416.

  • Why does my A/C have weak air flow?

  • A. The most common cause for weak air flow is a clogged cabin air filter. You should have your cabin filter checked at every oil change and replaced as needed. Other possible causes could be a mode door and/or actuator that is not working or a worn/weak blower motor

  • Are there any signals or alerts that tell me there is a problem with my A/C.

  • A. Unfortunately, there are no warning lamps associated with the air conditioning on your vehicle. the only indicator is poor air flow or air from the vents that is warm or just not as cool as it used to be

  • Why isn't my A/C as cold as it used to be?

  • A. You're A/C could be low on refrigerant due to a leak. This should be checked by a trained A/C technician.

  • My A/C starts off cool, but then gets warm,what causes this?

  • A.This is usually caused by poor air flow past the condensor (located in front of the radiator. this can be caused by an obstruction/debris in the condensor fins. also could be caused from the fan clutch not locking up as it should or an electric fan that is not working at all or not working properly.

  • Why is there a nasty odor coming from my A/C vents?

  • A. When you use you're A/C, moisture condenses on the inside of the evaporator housing (behind the dash), this moisture does not completely drain from the housing and what repains can turn to mildew and cause a bad odor. The best way to prevent this is to run the fan, with the mode selector on fresh (not recirc) and A/C off for a minute or so before turning the vehicle off. There are quite a few products that will kill the mildew and eliminate the odor.

  • How do you test for an A/C system leak?

  • A. There are several ways to check for a leak, the first is a visual inspection to look for wet areas around the hoses or fittings. A technician can also add dye to the system that shows up under a black light and aids in the visual inspection. For extremely difficult to find leaks in areas that can not be easily seen, an electronic halogen leak detector can be used.

  • What causes an A/C system leak?

  • A. A leak can occur from one of the rubber hoses or the o ring at the fitting. solder joints at the condensor or evaporator can become fatigued and crack. The A/C compressor can also develop a leak from the seal at the front of the compressor or one of the gaskets or o rings at the compressor body.
