A/C Performance Check

AC cool-dogAt Cowichan Auto Repair, all of your A/C repair and A/C services will be handled by certified mechanics and technicians. Your vehicle’s A/C problems can stem from many issues, including a Freon leak from a cracked O-ring seal in the A/C line, a worn out filter/condenser, a loose wire, or excessive heat radiation from the engine. Our technicians will figure out the root of your car’s A/C problem. They will thoroughly inspect your vehicle’s entire Air Conditioning system looking for leaks and other issues (e.g. warren hoses, O-rings, or seals, loose A/C fittings) and, should they find them, have the experience to put them right and get you back on the road in comfort.

  • Checks the operation of the A/C compressor
  • Performs a system state of charge test
  • Performs a system control test
  • Performs a leak test using an approved electronic leak detector

Car AC Repair & Recharge Service Frequently Asked Questions

My car has been sitting out in the cold, and now the heat won't work. What could be the issue?
Because most cars house the A/C and heating elements under the dash, it’s difficult to diagnose the problem without seeing your vehicle. Stop by at your earliest convenience, and we’ll figure out the problem.
Every time I turn on my car A/C it makes a weird noise but works great! Where is the noise coming from?
It could be a minor engine noise or hose you’re hearing, but it could also be a symptom of problems with your compressor. This is the heart of the system, so have it checked if you hear anything unusual.
My car’s air conditioner doesn't blow cold air any more. How can I fix that?
Your refrigerant may be low, either because you need a refill or because you have a leak in your A/C system. Our technician can tell you for sure.
The air coming thru the vents smells awful. What could be the causes of this?
Weird smells from your car’s vents are likely caused by a bacteria buildup in the evaporator. We have the proper tools to clean this out for you quickly.
