Now that summer is here and school is out, many of our customers are getting ready for a summer road trips and vacations. There are a lot of things to be done before going vacation, such as packing food and clothing, making sure your house is secure and making plans when you get to your destination. But there is one thing that Dan’s American Tire wants you to put on your vacation prep list: have your car serviced and get your tires checked.
Often people take the everyday working condition of their car and tires for granted. People get in their vehicles, start them and expect them to go. Day in and day out, your car may work reliably enough. But a long road trip is very different than trips across town. If your car has not been tuned up recently or your tires have not been checked, you may be heading out on an adventure that is not a vacation.
Summertime is just around the corner. It is important to have your vehicle’s air conditioner serviced by a professional technician or trusted mechanic before the weather gets hot. Diagnosing your vehicle’s air conditioning issues is best left to your automotive technician. Here are four of the most common signs of air conditioner system problems:
The Air Conditioner Air Is Not Cool Enough
There are many different potential causes for this problem such as low Freon levels, a faulty compressor or refrigerant leaks in the seals or hose connections. If your air conditioner has a leak, your local automotive technician may recommend that the O-rings, seals, and hoses are replaced before recharging your air conditioning unit.
