Despite the spring rains, we know that the warmer weather is coming, and you will rely on your Honda’s air conditioning to keep you cool while cruising the highways. At Toole’s Garage in Valley Springs we offer full range of Honda a/c services. Like other parts of your vehicle, the AC might develop faults that affect its performance and this can make spring and summer driving a challenge. That’s why we recommend that you get a jump start on the ac system repairs. Below is a list of items you may wish to consider before it gets hot outside.
Signs that your Honda’s a/c needs repair:
If you notice any of the symptoms below, call your local auto repair shop and bring your Honda in for an a/c checkup.
Kind of obvious, but often we don’t really notice the “no air” condition until we need that cold air blast. So check that the system blows cold air on demand.
If you hear any unusual sounds from the vents when you turn on the AC, your Honda’s AC might be due for a repair. Any time you hear unusual noises generated by your Honda, it’s time for a visit to a friendly local mechanic.
Unpleasant smells from the dash vents are an indicator that something is wrong with the AC system. It could be due to a refrigerant leak, dirty/worn cabin air filter, or mold growth. A mechanic can diagnose and fix the problem.
- Unexpected changes in temperature
A telltale sign of a faulty AC is that it blows out cool air but suddenly switches to warm air after a while. This symptom may be due to a clogged expansion valve blocking the refrigerant from flowing into the evaporator.
If the AC unit is unable to provide consistent cooling, there’s a chance the refrigerant is leaking.
If your Honda’s AC is giving you any of the signs above, don’t ignore it! Schedule an appointment at Toole’s Garage in Valley Springs right away, and get your Honda ready for the summer weather.
