Recharge The AC Freon In Your Car Or Truck

Your truck or car's AC system is almost completely airtight, but your freon refrigerant is always slowly leaking out. Eventually, a car will lose enough freon so that its air conditioning system will no longer cool effectively. At My Mechanic at 9617 Liberty Road we are ready to recharge your AC to help you keep your car or truck's cabin temperature cool.

"Help My AC Only Blows Warm Air!"

New advancements in R134a freon systems means that freon in newer cars doesn't leak out as much as old R12 freon systems. The average new model economy car only leaks about 0.41 ounces of refrigerant per year. Come to My Mechanic in Randallstown when it's time to recharge your AC freon.

My Mechanic's Fast 3 Step Process:
  • Vacuum out all the old refrigerant before refilling it.
  • Add new R134a refrigerant.
  • Pressurize your car's AC system and test for mico-leaks.
"Does My Mechanic Have R12 Freon For My Classic Car?"

Unfortunately R12 freon is no longer available. If your car or truck was made before 1994 you must convert your entire AC system to the new R134a standard. This involves replacing dozens of seals and several AC auto parts. R134a is a more highly pressurized and much more efficient refrigerant pound for pound than R12. Most classic car AC compressors and condensers cannot withstand the intense pressure required and choose to add about 25% less freon to accommodate older systems. This means your AC may not cool as well as it used to. Converting your R12 system to R134a is a big job so stop by My Mechanic today and talk with our mechanics about getting the job done right. Visit us today at 9617 Liberty Road.

"Is Used Freon Ok?"

Many auto repair shops resell used AC refrigerant. The old freon is cleaned using a specialized recovery machine that removes contaminants. Used freon provided by My Mechanic works just as well as new freon after it's cleaned. Accepting used freon is a great way to help minimize the impact freon has on the environment.

Freon gas becomes a liquid when pressurized inside your car's A/C system but returns to its gaseous state as it leaks out. Many drivers in Randallstown are completely unaware that they are losing freon until the day when they turn on the car's AC and find only warm air blows out. Call 410-922-2700 and ask any of our auto repair specialists about recharging your car's AC. Stop by our store at 9617 Liberty Road and we will show you the best AC recharging options for your car.

    Been going there for over 30 years always a pleasure always an honest estimate and always on time they may not be the cheapest but they back up their work and it's worth a penny or two more for that kind of confidence.

    Found My Mechanic through Dave Serio's website. They worked on my 2005 Honda Odyssey. Needed a new front axle and some brake work. They did a good job same day and I was very pleased. I will go back again for other service work in the future. Thanks guys!

    I took my truck to my mechanic because of a noise that I only heard on bumpy roads. They told me that it was a broken leaf spring and also recommended that I replace my stabilizer links. I had the spring taken care of immediately and returned to them for the stabilizer links. They also replaced the front rotors and pads at that time. They were very friendly and reasonably priced. I will be returning to my mechanic for future repairs without question.
