“Temperate weather can mask a poorly operating system” says Mike, owner of Automotive Engineering, one of the leading Mesa Auto Repair Shops. “You don’t know the real limits of your system until the temperatures hit the triple digits.”
A poorly operating AC system may only be able to drop the temperature in a car or truck by five or 10 degrees lower than the outside temperature, and when it’s only the 90s that might feel good enough, Mike says. But when it’s 105 degree outside, that typically isn’t enough for most people to be comfortable.
When an over-heated Mesa resident bring their car to Auto Repair - Automotive Engineering, the first step for the professional mechanics, who are all ASE certified, is to test the vehicle to see just how well it can cool. Next, comes trouble-shooting to determine the exact problem with the AC system.
Some of the most likely issue if your car or truck as AC problems are: low refrigerant level, blown fuse or a wiring problem, defective magnetic clutch (which gets power to the compressor), or a faulty compressor.
Most often the issue with an AC system that won’t cool well is a loss of refrigerant from a leak in a hose connection, seals and through microscopic pores in the hose. Newer cars are less prone to leaks, but even the small leaks can affect cooling performance.
This automotive service shop, which offers dealership-quality service at independent prices, can lower the vehicle cabin temperature by as much as 100 degrees, depending on the car or truck, its age and the efficiency of the AC system, Freon Service. Mike says that he’s gotten cabins down to as chilly as 45 degrees Fahrenheit.
“You could have stored meat in that car’s cabin,” they say.
