AIR CONDITIONER AND HEATER
It’s all about staying cool in the summer and warm in the winter! Our experts know the difference in car refrigerants – is it Freon or R12 or R134 or YF1234? Thankfully, you don’t need to know – that’s our job, and we’ll make your car blow just like a Jazz Trumpeter (cool or hot)! We have the proper diagnostic equipment to measure your Vehicles AC system to determine the level of refrigerant. We can determine if there is a leak, blockage, or a faulty compressor, condenser, blower motor, fan, or accumulator. Conversely, if your car’s heater is not keeping you toasty-warm in the winter, we can also help.
Today’s cars average more than 30 computers (1 on a chip), so diagnostics are more important than ever! If your car dashboard is telling you there’s a problem, but it’s not giving you enough information, then Big Bend Auto Center can take it from there. We can plug your car in, and regardless of the year, make or model, analyze your car’s needs and let you know what it needs – from a simple oil change to new filters, topping off fluids, or something more complex - we have the tools and computer databases to keep your vehicle on the road for all the miles in front of you and your car!
