Five Signs Your Car AC Needs To Be Serviced?

  • Your car air conditioning blows only slightly cooler than the outside air.
  • Your car's air conditioner blows air that smells like mildew and mold.
  • Your A/C only works while driving.
  • You have low airflow even at the highest fan setting.
  • Water condensing or dripping on your foot while driving.

Don't wait! If your car's A/C is working at reduced efficiency, it's worth a visit to Jim's Automotive. Taking care of regular maintenance now can help you avoid more expensive AC repair costs down the road. Sometimes fixing a broken air conditioner is as simple and cost effective as adding new coolant.

Most truck and car air conditioning systems break eventually with usage. Hoses that feed the AC unit may crack, clog or drip if not serviced. Let us service your car or truck and keep your cooling system performing at its peak. Call us at 703-931-9431 to learn more about how we can get your air conditioning running again!

Common Automotive AC Repair Services

Recharging Your Car's AC
Jim's Automotive in Arlington for Recharging Your Freon Fast

In some instances when your car's air conditioning (AC) begins to lose its cooling power or fails to blow cool air, it may be time for a simple freon recharge. Recharging your freon is often a fast and inexpensive repair that can help you beat the summer heat. But leaking freon may be caused by a cracked hose or seal. It is often an indicator that a more significant repair is needed.

Repair Your Car's AC Compressor
Let Jim's Automotive Repair Your Car's AC Compressor

The cool air in your car is produced primarily by the compressor. The four main functions that your vehicle's compressor carries out include pressurizing the refrigerant to cool cabin air, monitoring and controlling temperature output, sensing temperature changes inside and outside the vehicle, and moving air to your car's AC condenser.

Repair Your Car's AC Condenser
Discover the Best AC Condenser Repair in Arlington

Your vehicle's A/C condenser is usually located in the front of the radiator. When your AC compressor is pressurizing the refrigerant flows to the condenser to reduce the temperature and pressure. The condenser is a vital component in keeping your car's cabin temperature cool. It moves the cooled liquid refrigerant to the receiver/dryer or accumulator.

TESTIMONIALS

Wish I'd found Jim's Automotive years ago. Richard took the time to discuss my car's rough idle problem in great detail with me over the phone! THAT is the key to a relationship with a trusted mechanic. I learned about my vehicle in an honest way and was treated with kindness and respect. Thank you, Richard!

My husband and I brought in our Chevy Equinox in late March. We exchanged emails with Richard and he was very quick to get back to us and schedule an appointment. Our car was serviced the morning we dropped it off and we were able to pick it up by mid-afternoon. We knew that the work was expensive and that the required services were unavoidable. When comparing prices, we felt very comfortable with Jim's Automotive. Richard and Jim (not the namesake) explained everything in vivid detail, asked if we were comfortable with the charges and even showed us the rusty parts which were replaced. Having relocated to the area, we feel very fortunate to have found a automotive shop that we can trust. Thank you, Jim's, for a very positive and easy-going experience.

So friendly, honest and fast!!! My Elantra didn't pass inspection at the dealership and they were going to charge me over $900 for the exhaust. That was more than I had to spend in a 7 year old car all at once. I called Jim's and was offered an appointment the next day. They looked at it, told us it would be around $650 to fix it and possibly a few days to find the part. I don't know where they found the part but my car was fixed the next day and it was only $600. What a great experience:) I will only take my car here from now on!!!

Have had my vehicle in a couple times and have been very pleased with the service provided. No hidden costs or shady extras. Straight forward and helpful. I wish there were more shops with the integrity of Rich, Danny and Jim.
