Most people are ready for the warm weather on the way. During the cold temperatures of winter, your heating unit received a lot of use. Be sure that your vehicle is ready as well by scheduling an inspection with a certified car AC repair specialist.

With the introduction of computerized parts, today’s A/C system is more complex than in the days of “do-it-yourself” vehicle maintenance. Air conditioning systems work on the principle that when the refrigerant is compressed and cooled, then allowed to expand again, it will get very cold. If your AC’s compressor isn’t able to create a high enough pressure in the system then the refrigerant will not properly cool. Also, if there is a clog or block in the system, the high-pressure refrigerant may be allowed to slowly decompress through the clog which won’t create the proper cooling effect. A certified mechanic can determine how much pressure is in the compressor and will be able to tell you if it needs to be replaced or if it is simply clogged.

If you want to know how often you should service your car AC, schedule an inspection with a certified car AC repair specialist.

Did you know that the performance of your vehicle's wheel system is basically dependent on the condition of the struts (some cars have shocks) and the CV (constant velocity) joints and axles? These components are involved in the steering, driving, and braking of the vehicle, linking the power from the engine to the wheels, plus carrying the whole weight of the vehicle including passengers and cargo. If undamaged, these components can last up to 100,000 miles. However, because these components are constantly rotating and flexing to accommodate different road conditions, they can wear out and fail, resulting in possibly replacing the struts as well as CV joint repair.

So what happens when struts go bad?

Do people hear your vehicle coming down the street before they can actually see it? This can be an embarrassing situation. A muffler that is suddenly noisy is often caused by the driver hitting something while on the road, damaging the exhaust system. Rust can also be a culprit of holes in the muffler, resulting in a noisy muffler which gets progressively worse as the holes get bigger.

Exhaust systems in newer vehicles may now last well over 100,000 miles without causing any concerns. But because the exhaust system is exposed to the conditions of the road, damage may occur without warning. The parts of the exhaust system that can be damaged include:

Are you wondering, “Why is my muffler so loud?” There are several reasons for a loud muffler, but be sure to have the entire exhaust system inspected.
