Auto Heating and Cooling Maintenance in Detroit, Michigan
Promoting Comfort Year-Round
Long summer days and chilling winter nights can be some of the most miserable to endure without the comfort of an inviting vehicle to travel around in. At Redford Auto Repair, we want both you and your vehicle to stay a comfortable and safe temperature. That’s why we offer comprehensive heating and cooling system maintenance on all vehicles.
Radiators are central to cooling a car. If your vehicle is overheating, you might have a problem with your radiator. Extreme engine temperatures may cause a head gasket to blow, which will lead to further engine damage. Our reputable mechanics will prevent the damage from worsening and restore the cooling mechanisms to functioning order.
Air Conditioning and Heating Systems
When your car’s air conditioning stops working, it’s usually from a refrigerant leak. This kind of leak prevents Freon from cooling the air and is often found in the evaporator core. Our HVAC technicians use UV dye to conduct a simple test to locate the leak. Once the leak is found, we can quickly repair the leak or replace your evaporator core so your AC blows cold again.
Defective heating systems are most often the result of a plugged heater core. The Redford Auto Repair technicians will run diagnostics to make sure that this is the case and replace the heater core if necessary.
Coolant fluid is one of the components responsible for absorbing engine heat and warming the inside of a car during the winter. This fluid needs to be replaced periodically because it breaks down over time. Draining out old coolant and replenishing the system with new fluid will remove dirt and rust that clog up the system and cause discomfort in the summer and winter.
Our experienced mechanics recommend flushing your fluid every 40,000 miles or every five years —whichever comes first.
A car’s thermostat is part of its cooling system and helps the engine stay at an optimal temperature range. If your temperature warning light ever turns on, contact us right away so your engine doesn’t overheat and cause damage. The certified specialists at Redford Auto Repair will walk you through the diagnosis and the steps for repair.
