All about our auto air conditioning diagnostic service.

Auto air conditioning is a vital system to keep you comfortable while driving in hot weather. However, just like any other part of your car, it can break down and require diagnosis and repair. In this blog, we will discuss the most common auto air conditioning diagnostic issues and how to resolve them.

Firstly, one of the most common issues with auto air conditioning is insufficient cooling. This can be caused by a refrigerant leak, a clogged orifice tube or expansion valve, a malfunctioning compressor, or a broken belt. To diagnose this issue, a qualified technician will inspect the system and check the refrigerant levels, compressor clutch, and condenser fan.

Secondly, another common issue is unusual noises coming from the air conditioning system. This can be caused by a damaged compressor, a faulty clutch, or worn bearings. The technician will visually inspect these components to identify the issue.

Thirdly, a problem with the airflow can also occur. This can be caused by a blocked or dirty cabin air filter or a malfunctioning blower motor. To diagnose this issue, the technician will check the air filter and perform a voltage test on the blower motor.

Lastly, a foul odor coming from the air conditioner can also be an issue. This can be caused by a dirty cabin air filter, mold growth in the evaporator, or an improperly draining condensation line. The technician will inspect the air filter and clean the evaporator, as well as check the condensation line and drain if necessary.

In short, an auto air conditioning diagnostic review and service is crucial to maintaining a comfortable driving experience. If you experience any of the issues mentioned above, we can help.
