Car Air Conditioning System Service
Wondering what your vehicle’s A/C system consists of? Today, most automotive A/C systems consist of 5 major components. These 5 (parts) are the evaporator (EVAP core), A/C compressor, condenser, and two other items, either a receiver/drier and expansion valve (also called a thermal, or thermostatic expansion valve), or an accumulator and orifice tube. Which two of these four last items depends on the type of A/C system your vehicle is equipped with. Is it time to have your vehicle’s A/C system checked?
A/C Compressor – Why do A/C compressors get replaced? Well, they leak (number one issue), compressor clutch electrically fails and mechanical failures are the major culprits of this issue. When there is an issue you want to rectify it ASAP. The longer you wait, the more costly repairs will get. Need a compressor replaced?
A/C Condenser – Why do condensers have issues? Your condenser collects contaminants and oil out of the refrigerant (freon) from the compressor by means of your vehicles expansion valve. If your condenser is dirty (clogged), flushing moves sludge through the system. If done improperly this will damage components and make the bill go up. Need an A/C condenser replaced near me?
A/C Evaporator – What causes evaporator (EVAP) core problems? Your evaporator coil is an important part of your A/C system. It is basically a miniaturized radiator that sits inside the dashboard that provides the cold air needed for the air-conditioning system. Moisture can develop on the outer fins which in some cases can cause mold & mildew to form which is not good. Sometimes this can creates a clogging effect which clogs your drain tube. It’s good practice to turn the A/C system off before you park, to help dry the moisture. Need an evaporator replaced?
A/C Drier – Also known as an A/C accumulator. A/C driers are used to absorb water and avoid the A/C compressor from seeing catastrophic contaminants. Moisture is enemy #1 for your A/C system. Moisture in a system mixes with refrigerant and forms a corrosive acid. If their is sign of moisture in the A/C system you should change the accumulator or drier before it’s to late.

There are several reasons your vehicle’s A/C system can lose its cooling powers. Bring your vehicle to us at the first sign of an issue, it could mean the difference between needing a small (cheap & easy) repair, or worse, a larger (time consuming & expensive) one.
List of common automotive air conditioning problems.
- The most likely cause of an automotive air conditioner cooling problem is no refrigerant (Freon) in your A/C system and or a lack of. A lack of Freon in some vehicles will make the air conditioning compressor not to turn on due to a low pressure safety switch. This protects your expensive air conditioning compressor from possible damage caused by a lack of lubrication. Wondering what’s going on?
- Compressor failure problems are also a common issue that we see on a regular basis. Typically due to a loss of lubrication, which in turn can be caused by low refrigerant due to a leak in your system, or a blockage in the orifice tube. Which will effect refrigerant and oil from circulating to the compressor correctly. Looking for an auto A/C shop near me, Planfield, Naperville, Bolingbrook, Romeoville, that you can trust?
- Built up moisture in a vehicle’s A/C system can create ice which will over time block the orifice tube. Which in return will cause a restriction that stops the Freon and oil (pag oil) from flowing through your A/C system. Where in most cases this air contamination is due to a leak in the system that should be rectified. Where if not rectified will snowball and only cost you more money to resolve later down the road.
Your air conditioning system consists of quite a few components. When a problem occurs there is many possibilities of what the issue may be. Other common A/C system problems include: o-rings, seals & hoses, compressors & compressor clutches, evaporators & condensers, driers, receivers & accumulators, switches, controllers, modules & relays, blower motors & resistors. Regardless we have you and your A/C needs covered, near me, A-Z.
