As the “heart” of the A/C system, the compressor performs a critical duty in the cooling of your vehicle. A compressor is a rotating pump which circulates refrigerant throughout the A/C system. Symptoms of a bad A/C compressor include: The A/C compressor won’t turn on, or stutters on and off The A/C is blowing warm
Before servicing a vehicle, confirm system refrigerant type. Cross contamination of refrigerants can cause damage to A/C system, service tools and equipment. Be sure to always use protective hand and eye wear. The right (red) side of the manifold is the high side and the red gauge is the high pressure gauge. The left (blue)
Ah, Spring! As the days get longer, moods elevate and people are ready to get out and enjoy the fresh air and awakening scenery. For many of us that includes car rides to and from our location, and increasingly in this Covid world, the ride sometimes becomes the destination. Before you head out on
No. No, it’s not. A properly functioning vehicle air conditioning system is absolutely crucial to maintaining a cool and comfortable interior cabin, especially during the heat of summer. That’s why when things start to go wrong, we are so impatient to get it back to peak performance. Unfortunately, the A/C is often a “forgotten system”
Under normal conditions you should never have to recharge you automotive A/C with refrigerant. The system is, after all, a closed loop through which the refrigerant flows ad infinitum. So what does it mean if your system starts blowing warm air? If the warming of your AC output has happened slowly over time, it is
When a mobile A/C system needs to be repaired, the first step taken is usually to recover the refrigerant from the system for reuse later. An A/C vacuum pump is used to remove unwanted air and water vapor when it is under service. Moisture and air in the system can potentially damage the system. Air
Hot temperatures outside generally means cranking up your car’s A/C, but what if you do that and a rattling noise accompanies the cool flowing air? Hearing any sort of rattling noise from your car can cause stress and concern. A rattling sound can mean your A/C is starting to deteriorate and/or some of its parts
It may seem counter-intuitive to run your mobile A/C when the weather’s cool, or even freezing, however running the A/C in the winter not only does not do any harm to your heating/cooling system, it may in fact, offer benefits. Simply put, running the A/C and heater will dehumidify and remove moisture from the air.
A vehicle’s air conditioner keeps the cabin cool and comfortable on hot days. To do that effectively, it requires the correct level of refrigerant in the system. Since refrigerant is not “consumed” or used up in the normal process of cooling a vehicle, If a system is low on refrigerant it’s because there is a
Is there water pooling inside or outside of your vehicle? While there are a few potential causes, the culprit may likely be an A/C water leak. A/C water leaks are very different from the A/C refrigerant leaks that we often speak about. Read further to learn what causes car A/C water leaks and what to
In general, “Spark Free” tools are made of materials that do not contain iron and which utilize manufacturing processes which reduce the risk of a spark being created while the tool is in use . They protect against both fire and explosion in environments that may contain flammable liquids, vapors, dusts or residues. When working
Automotive air conditioning is a self-contained system which cools the cabin of a car by changing the phase of refrigerant from gas to liquid and back again by applying and releasing pressure on it. Each of the parts of the system is connected by tubing or hoses to form a closed loop through which the
Winter is quickly approaching, and for many drivers that often means several months without running their car air conditioning. However, operating the AC in your vehicle during these colder months can actually prolong the life of your vehicle’s system and, even more importantly, help keep you safer on the road. Your car’s air conditioner does
Although it may not always seem like it (traffic anyone?) we sure are lucky to be drivers in 2019 when air conditioning comes standard on nearly every car sold in the US…..but it wasn’t always that way! Throughout much of the automobile’s history, air conditioning was either an overheated-driver’s dream or later, an enviable cutting-edge
