Car A/C Repair Services


The best way to minimize breakdowns in the middle of the heat season is doing routine maintenance


Heating and A/C systems could wear out in time with use, hoses may obstruct and leak if not serviced, resulting in poor efficiency or total loose.

Heating and A/C systems operate to keep your vehicle cabin warm in the winter and cool in the summer. The A/C system additionally serves a dual function of operating your defrost in the winter season.

Heating systems are comprised of a heating system core that acts like a small radiator behind the dash, fan, and hoses that run the heat from the engine to the core. Air conditioning systems work similarly, by bringing coolant to the fan to blow cool air in the cabin.

Unlike home cooling and heating systems, your heating system and air conditioning do not entirely operate off electric elements, but they make use of the engine's heat and the engine's cooling down abilities to alter the temperature level.

A comprehensive evaluation of heating and A/C system includes:

  • Examining the internal controls and blower
  • Checking radiator coolant operating temperature, hoses, pressure radiator cap and thermostat
  • Inspecting the compressor belt
  • Inspecting system and seals for leaks or various other damages.
  • A cooling system pressure test
  • Verifying the A/C pressure meets manufacturer specifications

If you notice reduced airflow early on –rather than later– take the right step and have it looked at before other fatal A/C system damage can occur.

Have a broken car A/C? Don't sweat it
If your car air conditioner isn't working, Alamo Automotive Center's automotive professionals are adept at diagnosing a car's A/C repair problem. Common A/C problems include:

  • O-rings, seals and hoses
  • Compressors and compressor clutches
  • Evaporators and condensers
  • Driers, receivers and accumulators
  • Switches, controls, modules and relays
  • Blower motors and resistors

Indications your A/C system may be having issues:

  • If your air conditioning blows only slightly cooler air compared to the exterior air
  • Air that blows in smells damp, musty, or like mildew and mold
  • Your cabin does not warm up in cold weather, or is just a little warmer than outside
  • The defroster takes longer than typical to operate, or does not operate
  • Your heater or A/C only functions when driving, not when idling, or quits blowing when the car is stationary
  • Blower motors and resistors
