Auto Repair For Your Cooling System Service at Brookside “66” Helps Beat The Heat

Auto repair at Brookside “66” includes your cooling system service, like water pumps, radiators, and more. Beat the heat this summer and make sure your cooling system service is working correctly in your vehicle.

If caught early on, auto cooling system repair doesn’t have to be a major expense. If your car is overheating (the temperature gauge is showing in the red), if you constantly have to add antifreeze to your cooling system, or if you frequently see puddles of antifreeze form under your car, you may need car cooling system repair.

Why does my A/C have weak airflow?

There are a lot of factors at play. If you notice reduced airflow early on — rather than later — take the right step and have it looked at before other fatal A/C system damage can occur.

Main causes of weak airflow:

  • Mold or mildew may have accumulated in the evaporator core from residual moisture that occurs during the cooling process. When this happens, air will have trouble reaching your air vents.
  • A hose has come loose. This usually happens with the blower hose that supplies air to the blower unit.
  • Ventilation fan is fried. If the fan’s not blowing, air won’t be flowing very well.
  • Core case seals, blower house seals or evaporator core case seals – they can all open up and diminish air flow. A/C ventilation systems are very sensitive and must remain sealed. Once they’re opened, the whole system is compromised. Brookside “66” will check your airflow and know if you need auto repair work.

Auto repair at Brookside 66 includes cooling system service.

My A/C isn’t as cold as it used to be, what’s going on?

There are several reasons an A/C system can lose its cool. Bring your vehicle to us as soon as you start noticing this symptom – it could mean the difference between needing a small repair, or worse, a large one. Here’s what can cause your cold air to lose its cool and your vehicle to need auto repair.

The lack of cold air could be caused by:

  • A freon leak caused by a failed o-ring, seal, hose or component
  • A clogged expansion tube or refrigerant charging hose
  • Failed compressor or compressor clutch
  • Failed blower motor or blower motor resistor
  • Damaged or failed condenser or evaporator
  • Vacuum leaks
  • Failed switch, fuse, relay, control module, blend door or solenoid

When an A/C system develops a leak, you have what’s called an “open system.” If you or a Brookside “66” technician discovers the leak early, your repair will be less expensive.

The A/C starts out cool then starts getting warm, what’s happening?

A/C systems are a fickle breed. Your best bet is to have Brookside “66” inspect your system for any of the following listed symptoms.

From cold to hot and all the symptoms in between:

  • The clogged expansion valve: The expansion valve distributes the proper amount of refrigerant to your evaporator. If the valve is blocked, the refrigerant can’t flow into the evaporator. With the valve clogged, the refrigerant will start to freeze the valve altogether if moisture is present.
  • Fuses sometimes short out. If the fuse associated with your A/C system goes, the power to certain parts will stop.
  • Leaks are an A/C system’s worst friend: Leaks are the result of damage or the presence of moisture. When moisture and refrigerant mix, corrosive acids will eat away at seals and components, causing a leak.
