Car AC Service Albuquerque

Albuquerque is known for its hot, dry summers. Believe us when we say it’s not the best time to be without reliable air conditioning in your vehicle. Car AC isn’t a luxury, it’s a necessity when you live in New Mexico. Besides being uncomfortable, an overheated car quickly can become a life-threatening situation under certain circumstances.

You never have to go without the comforts of car AC. Rio Grande Auto offers car AC repair services for all domestic and foreign vehicles in Albuquerque. We make sure you stay cool so you can get back to focusing on driving safely.

Common vehicle AC problems

Air conditioning issues can be slow to develop, but there always are warning signs of impending AC failure. There are many working parts to a car AC system, but some of the most likely areas for breakdowns include the compressor and AC coolant lines.

Compressor failure

Your vehicle’s AC compressor can fail for many reasons. Sometimes it’s just normal wear and tear, which is understandable in a climate as hot as ours in Albuquerque. Failure to keep the compressor lubricated and clogged expansion tubes also can lead to trouble down the road.

If you start to notice squeaking noises coming from your AC, or it’s not cooling your vehicle like it used to, then it’s time to call us for a thorough inspection to pinpoint the issue.

Coolant line leaks

The AC in your car requires coolant to operate. Leaky coolant lines can prevent the necessary coolant from reaching the compressor. The good news about coolant line leaks is they are relatively easy and inexpensive to repair. Once our technicians discover the source of the leak, we can replace the affected lines and get your AC working hard again.

AC system inspections

Don’t wait until you’re stuck to your car seat in sweltering New Mexico summer heat. Rio Grande Auto recommends having your car’s AC unit inspected annually to identify any issues. Give us a call today to schedule your service appointment.
