A/C System Evaluation

There are many possible reasons why your car’s A/C may not be working the way it used to and a leak might be one of them. Have an ASE-certified technician near you evaluate the state of your vehicle’s system and see if a leak is the issue.

  • Outlet temperature analysis designed to determine cooling performance
  • System pressure check
  • Visual inspection of A/C components
  • A blacklight inspection of your A/C system using an injection of ultraviolet dye and 5 ounces refrigerant that provides enough pressure to course through the system and expose leaks
    • There are times where a vehicle must be driven for a period of time in order for the leak to be seen.
  • Cost of refrigerant not included
