Does my car need AC repair?
Summer is here and temperatures are heating up, which means it's time to make sure your car AC system is in working order. If you're not getting that cool breeze you love and your commute is turning into a sweaty mess, head to Top Motors Complete Auto Care in Chicago. Of course, besides a lack of cold air, there are several other signs that your car air conditioner may be about to fail, so pay close attention to how it performs. If you notice any of the following issues, come see us right away, as the quicker you act, the more comfortable you'll be and the repair costs will be as low as possible.
Rattling Sound from AC
When you turn on your car air conditioner, you should only hear the sound of its fan blowing chilled air. If you hear a rattling noise that only occurs when the unit is on, a failing fan belt or condenser may be to blame. Proper air conditioner diagnostics will need to be performed to identify the cause of the sound, as it may even be caused by a minor clog.
Puddling on Car Floor Mat
Your car AC system is designed to draw moisture from the outside air and then release it back outside the car, using it to create the cool air. If you notice any puddling inside your vehicle after running the air conditioner, it may be due to a problem with the system, causing that moisture to be released in your car. Even if you're still getting cold air, it likely won't last. Come see us for car AC service before the heat gets to you.
Bad Odor From AC
A nasty smell coming from your AC vents could well be a sign that there is mold in the system. This is quite bad since breathing in mold can be harmful to your health. Don't delay a trip to our shop so we can properly identify the cause of the smell.
AC Freon/Refrigerant Leak
An air conditioner leak can be somewhat difficult to diagnose because refrigerant or Freon is not generally visible to the naked eye, unless there is a catastrophic leak. However, it does have an oily smell. If your car AC system is not operating properly, we'll check for a Freon leak, as this liquid is critical for proper AC operation.
