Why a Regular AC Service is Important:

Heating and A/C systems may break eventually with usage, hose pipes may clog and drip if not serviced, causing reduced efficiency heating and cooling capabilities. Regular maintenance will keep your AC system operating at peak performance!

Signs that you may need an Auto AC Repair:

  • If your air conditioning blows only slightly cooler air compared to the exterior air
  • Air that blows in smells damp, musty, or like mildew and mold
  • Your cabin does not warm up in cold weather, or is just a little warmer than outside.
  • The defroster takes longer than typical to operate, or does not operate.
  • Your heater or A/C only functions when driving, not when idling, or quits blowing when the car is stationary.
  • Your heating system blows cold air, or the air conditioning blows warm air.
  • Low airflow even at the highest fan setting.

A comprehensive evaluation of heating and A/C system includes:

  • Examining the internal controls and blower.
  • Checking radiator coolant operating temperature, hoses, pressure radiator cap and thermostat.
  • Inspecting the compressor belt.
  • Inspecting system and seals for leaks or various other damages.
  • A cooling system pressure test.
  • Verifying the A/C pressure meets manufacturer specifications.
  • Measuring the interior vent air temperature.

Fan Belt Replacement

A fan belt, also known as a drive belt, is a belt connecting your car’s engine to the front mounted accessories. The fan belt rotates the water pump and engine fan, which maintains a cool environment for the engine and its components. Sooner or later, your vehicle’s fan belts will dry out and crack, needing replacement. It can be hard to know when to replace a fan belt without looking at it.  As a general rule, your vehicle’s fan belt, or drive belt should be replaced every 40,000-70,000 miles.

You can count on Fred’s Auto Center, LLC for all your vehicle’s repair needs.

Radiator Service & Replacement

Radiators are heat exchangers for cooling your car’s internal combustion engine. A radiator cools the engine by circulating an engine coolant through the engine block – it then loses the heat to the atmosphere through radiation. A radiator has a set of tubes through which the engine coolant flows. Fins surround these tubes. When the radiator fails, the excess heat produced by the engine could damage the engine components. To prevent this from happening, have your radiator serviced regularly. To have your radiator needs handled by experts, visit Fred’s Auto Center, LLC today.
