To Fix or Not To Fix: That Is the Question.

Automotive Tips from Made In America Made In Japan: Air Conditioning Inspection

Most auto manufacturers recommend an interval for an air conditioning system inspection. The inspection uncovers leaks, worn hoses and assesses the condition of the other components.Environmental laws in some around Sacramento require leaks to be repaired before refrigerant can be added. Also some parts manufacturers require other components to be replaced along with certain failed parts in order to maintain the new part warranty. This is because a given failure may be the result of another worn or damaged part that will, if not replaced, prematurely damage the new component.Made In America Made In Japan in Sacramento is fully equipped to restore your flow of cool air.Made In America Made In Japan1200 I StSacramento, California 95814916-442-3287

It may be as simple as adding more of the right kind of refrigerant.Your A/C requires special compressor oil, which circulates through the system along with the refrigerant, to lubricate and protect expensive components and keep seals and gaskets from drying out. If refrigerant has leaked out – so has the compressor oil. This oil needs to be replenished whenever refrigerant is added.An air conditioning inspection at Made In America Made In Japan will uncover any potential problems and identify any necessary repairs needed to get Sacramento drivers on the road to cool air once again.Give us a call.Made In America Made In Japan1200 I StSacramento, California 9581491

Automotive Tips from Made In America Made In Japan: Air Conditioning ? Common Problem

Dirty components can have the same consequences.Ask your Made In America Made In Japan service advisor for an air conditioning system inspection to make sure everything is up to spec.Made In America Made In Japan1200 I StSacramento, California 95814916-442-3287
