This vehicle also came in with the air conditioner not working all the time. We charged the A/C, added dye and freon. Another customer happy to have COLD AIR now!!!!
Here’s another vehicle that came in the shop last week. Customer stating the air conditioner wasn’t blowing cold. We charged the A/C and added dye and freon. BLOWS COLD NOW!!!!
The vehicle came in for an oil change. We do a courtesy safety inspection on all our vehicles that come in the shop. Our inspection showed other things needing attention. Brake fluid is low, coolant was low, needed a flush due to mileage, power steering may need a flush due to mileage. Fuel system may need air/fuel system service do to mileage. Ignition parts may need tune up due to mileage. Does your oil change facility take the time to look for these things? If you’re not using Baxley’s Auto Repair for all your oil changes, you should!!!! Maintenance is Key!
Here’s another A/C check we did last week. 2007 Honda Civic. Just Charged, added dye and freon. Blows Cool ALL THE TIME Now!!!!
Last week, a 1995 GMC 1500 pick up came in the shop. Customer requested we check the air conditioner. We charged it, added freon and dye. VEHICLE NOW BLOWS COLD In this 90 degree temperature we’ve been having! Summer is here!
Don’t ignore you’re vehicle’s warning lights. Drop by and let us check it out. It may be okay, but you never know. Last week a 2010 Toyota Camry came in with the tire light on. We checked it and the right rear tire was low. We plugged the tire and replaced the tire pressure sensor and program.
2002 Chevrolet Cavalier: Customer asked us to check for coolant leak. Vehicle needed a new water pump and thermostat. Our multi-point inspection report also showed it needed a new serpentine belt. We replaced it as well. Customer is VERY HAPPY!
HOW YOUR A/C WORKS The system conditions the air by cooling it and removing moisture to make you comfortable while you drive. There are three types of air conditioning systems: orifice tube, expansion valve, or the combination of the two which is found in rear air conditioning systems. The air conditioning system is made up of the following components. Compressor, condenser, evaporator, orifice tube (or expansion valve) and an accumulator (or receiver drier). Each of these components serves a different purpose. Learn more about the repetitive cycle of the system above.
This week we had an 2008 Toyota Rav4 come in. The customer was taking a trip and wanted us to check out to insure a safe one! The customer had hit something which bent the muffler and tore a whole in it. Our MULTI-POINT INSPECTION REPORT showed the Brake fluid may need a flush due to mileage. ((157,000 miles). Coolant was also low, transmission fluid needed flushed (due to mileage) and front seal and axle seal was leaking. The UNDER THE HOOD INSPECTION showed it may need air/fuel system service do to mileage and the ignition parts needed a tune up. The Tire Inspection showed a leak in left and right front tires. SERVICES RECOMMENDED TO CUSTOMER: Install a Muffler, remove and replace R Differential Pinion Seal and replace the two front tire sensors. PARTS RECOMMENDED TO CUSTOMER: Muffler, pinion seal, TPMS Sensor.
We replaced the muffler, the right differential pinion seal, the two front tire sensors (TPMS) and the left rear axle seal. They are certainly thankful they thought ahead and had their vehicle checked out! Although no one likes spending money for repair work on anything……They will have a SAFER TRIP without the risk of having an accident and/or having to go to a repair shop (they know nothing about). But, can now ENJOY THE TRIP!!!
