AC Air Conditioning services

An air conditioner is one of the most important features of a vehicle in Fresno Ca. Getting your air conditioner serviced is an appointment you’ll invariably need to make with an auto repair shop like Frank Your Mechanic. Even if you treat your car or truck with care, you’ll use your air conditioner often, and it’ll need services like recharging the system and sealing leaks. Fortunately, you can own a new car for several years before your air conditioner needs servicing, but when problems do occur a local auto repair shop can run some diagnostic checks and tell you whether you need a simple system recharge or there’s a leak that needs fixing.

Signs You Need Air Conditioning Repair

If you turn on your air conditioner on a hot day and cold air never arrives, you probably already know that there’s something wrong with your air conditioner. Car air conditioning repair is a common offering from modern auto repair shops, Frank Your Mechanic is well-equipped to provide any service and repair for your car’s AC.

Are there any unusual noises when you use your air conditioner?

Turn your air conditioner on “Max AC” or “high” and place your ear near one of the vents. Do you hear any strange noises? You could have a problem with the compressor.

What temperature does the air conditioner blow?

If your air conditioner feels warm and never cools off, there’s clearly a problem that requires car AC repair. However, there are a few different behaviors that could indicate something other than the need to recharge the AC. For example, does the air conditioner blow cold air for a short time and then begin to blow hot air? Does the AC blow cold air intermittently? Is the blowing air warm or the same temperature as the air?

Do the blower settings work appropriately?

Does the air blow correctly when you place the AC on its different settings? Does Max AC feel like it blows at full blast? When you change the intensity of the AC, does the amount of air coming out of the vents change appropriately? Your AC auto repair might include replacement of a broken fan motor.

Are there any strange smells coming from the vents?

An odd smell could be a sign of a leak in your AC, and it’s important to get your vehicle to your local car repair shop as swiftly as possible to prevent further deterioration of the system. If the air smells bad, the problem could also be mold or mildew, or it could simply be a problem with the cabin air filter.

Other Problems With Your AC

Beyond the issues listed above, there is a variety of other reasons why you might need AC car repair. For example, the belt on the compressor could be loose and require replacement. If you suspect a leak in one of the hoses, your mechanic can use UV light or dye to locate the problem. Your AC could even have a problem with freezing, which is when ice actually forms inside the ducts and hoses of the air conditioning. You can shut your AC off for a short time to alleviate this problem, but auto air conditioning repair is necessary if the problem is persistent. Driving around town with an air conditioner that doesn’t work in the high heat of August is quite an uncomfortable way to get to work each day, pick the kids up from school, or do errands.

Are there Warning Signals

There are warning signals that will alert you of necessary brake repair and if caught early you can avoid costly repairs. These early warning signals’ come in two forms, physical and audible, and some cannot be heard over your radio or air conditioner. Therefore, it is important to stop and listen to how your car sounds when braking every so often. Regardless of warning signals, we suggest you have your brakes inspected at least every other oil change. You also should consider where you drive most often; if you drive in stop and go traffic you may need to replace your pads more often. Depending on the quality of brake pads, you will need to have then replaced every 20,000 to 60.000 miles.

Warnings Signs

Below I have listed some common warning signals. If you are experiencing any of the following schedule an appointment sooner rather than later.

High Pitched Squealing Noise: Inside your brake pad is a small metal wear indicator. The indicator is exposed when your pads are running dangerously thin. This early warning signal is there to give you advanced notice before a problem occurs. When you hear this noise, you should inspect the width of your pad and make an appointment to have them replaced soon.

Grinding Noise: If you hear a loud grinding noise when you brake it isn’t good. This is a sign that you have completely worn through your pads. The noise is created by metal on metal contact. When this happens, you run the risk of damaging your rotors and it is advisable to have your brakes repaired immediately.

Spongy Brakes: Spongy brakes feel just how they sound when pressed. Your stopping distance is increased and you may have to press the brakes harder than usual. The most common reason for this is air in the brake fluid line. Unless there is a hole in the line, this can usually be corrected through a process called “bleeding” which eliminates the air in the line.

Pre-Purchase Inspections

Buying a car is usually one of the most expensive purchases we make, so it’s important to be well-informed when buying a vehicle. Reputable car dealers will always allow you to bring in your own mechanic for an independent inspection of the vehicle, and Frank Your Mechanic can handle your pre-purchase inspection.

A Pre-Purchase Inspection Helps Negotiations

Even if the vehicle looks terrific on the outside, it’s difficult to know if you’re buying a vehicle that’s in good condition on the inside, too, unless you’re a mechanic and can diagnose potential problems. Your ASE certified technician is a valuable ally during your search for a vehicle. Even if your future car is only a few years old, a used car inspection can reveal issues you might never think to look for in a used car. Additionally, an inspection can let you know about the car’s history, such as whether it’s been in any accidents, if it’s passed its inspections for registration, and any major work the vehicle has had done by past owners. An accident in the past shouldn’t automatically disqualify a car from consideration, but it can influence your bargaining power and the price you pay.

What’s Included in an Auto Inspection?

There are several features your technician will examine during the pre-purchase car inspection. Your future car will be examined for the following:

The equipment advertised for the trim level is on the car.

The approximate condition of the overall vehicle (poor, fair, good, excellent)

Problems with the body or frame

Issues with mechanical features like the engine and transmission

Most automotive experts recommend a pre-purchase inspection before you buy a used vehicle. The information provided in the inspection is worth its weight in gold when it can help you avoid the purchase Some of the problems a good pre-purchase inspection can find include hidden repair work that wasn’t revealed in the vehicle’s sale advertisement, as well as a bent frame that may have occurred after an unreported accident. A vehicle inspection is valuable for building confidence during the car-buying experience, and it can save you thousands of dollars down the road in auto repairs. Let the professionals at Frank Your Mechanic perform a valuable auto inspection on your next vehicle. Schedule an appointment online now.

Check Engine Light Service

Having your check engine light turn on could mean a number of things. Many people assume there is something significantly wrong when the check engine light comes on. That isn’t necessarily true. There are less series issues such as, your gas cap isn’t screwed on properly, and that can trigger the light as well. The light is your car’s method of informing you that something is wrong in the tuning of the engine. Diagnosis still requires you to get your car hooked up to a diagnostic scan tool. It is important that you get your vehicle checked out as soon as possible when your Malfunction indicator light is illuminated. This could help you save money on expensive repairs and keep the problem from becoming a larger one. If your check engine light is flashing or blinking it means there is a severe problem in the engine and it should be looked at immediately. We suggest you do not drive the vehicle if the light is flashing. The experts at Frank Your Mechanic can help you diagnose your trouble codes and get you back on the road quickly.

What our customers are saying

I don't write many reviews, however this recommendation is rightfully deserved. I took in my car to fix a malfunction with my wipers and Frank, who was working the front desk and a technician, told me how long the process would take and the pricing. They were suppose to charge me to look at the car, but Frank decided to give it a quick look. He quickly discovered the problem and spent 5 minutes to fix the problem. He took time to explain the problem and solution. I tried to tip him, but he would not take it.  My car knowledge is limited, so they could have charged me anything and told me the problem was bigger than it really was.  I give them five stars for their honesty and customer service.
