Air Conditioning & Heat

Air Conditioner | A/C System Charge

Is the air coming from the vents in your car just not as cold as it used to be? You’ve likely run low on refrigerant in your A/C system. Over time, tiny amounts of refrigerant leak from the lines, degrading A/C performance. Recharging your air conditioner can be completed in a short time. This is one of the most quick and easy tasks to perform when maintaining a vehicle, but holds the potential to cause problems with the air conditioning system if done incorrectly, so let the professionals at Uptown Auto Repair check out your air conditioning system and perform an a/c charge.

Heater Core Flush

If your car’s heater doesn’t seem to be working too well, it might be time to flush it out. Flushing out the tubes in the heater core will allow the coolant to flow more easily so there will always be warm coolant to heat up the air going into the cabin. This is especially true if it has been a while since you last changed the coolant as all the buildup can eventually end up in the heater core.

Car Care Tips

Check all fluids

It's important to check your engine oil, power steering, brake and transmission as well as windshield washer solvent and antifreeze/coolant. Your engine oil should be changed every 3,000 to 5,000 miles or follow what's in the owner's manual.

Check the hoses and belts

To avoid expensive repairs, you need to make sure your belts and hoses are not cracked, brittle, frayed, loose or showing signs of excessive wear.

Check the battery

The average car battery life can be anywhere from three to five years, but the exact time of any given battery can depend on a number of factors. Replace if necessary. Make sure the connection is clean, tight and corrosion-free.

Check the brake system

You should check your brake system annually for safety and have the brake linings, rotors and drums inspected at each oil change.

Check engine performance

Check your engines performance to make sure it is delivering the best balance of power and fuel economy and producing the lowest level of emissions.

Check the heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) system

Check your heat, a/c and ventilation as proper heating and cooling performance is critical for interior comfort and for safety reasons such as defrosting.

Check the tires

You should check your tire pressure and tread. Uneven wear indicates a need for wheel alignment. Tires should also be checked for bulges and bald spots.

Check the wipers and lighting

Check your lights to make sure you can see and be seen. Check that all interior and exterior lighting is working properly and replace worn wiper blades so you can see clearly when driving during precipitation.

Inspect the exhaust system

Your exhaust system should be checked for leaks, damage and broken supports or hangers if there is an unusual noise. Exhaust leaks can be dangerous and must be corrected without delay.

Inspect the steering and suspension system

You should have your steering and suspension checked annually including shock absorbers, struts and chassis parts such as ball joints, tie rod ends and other related components.
