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 Mission Village Auto Care at 6008 Mission Gorge Rd Suite B 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 Mission Village Auto Care in San Diego when it's time to recharge your AC freon.

Mission Village Auto Care'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 Mission Village Auto Care 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 Mission Village Auto Care today and talk with our mechanics about getting the job done right. Visit us today at 6008 Mission Gorge Rd Suite B.

"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 Mission Village Auto Care 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 San Diego 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 619-280-2354 and ask any of our auto repair specialists about recharging your car's AC. Stop by our store at 6008 Mission Gorge Rd Suite B and we will show you the best AC recharging options for your car.

    They were so nice to work with and super friendly, were able to identify the issue quickly whereas another shop was not, fix damage the other shop did, and they did it all quickly! I’ll definitely be returning for my next auto repair needs.

    I was in town for the week moving my son into his condo for school. On the way down my car temp started to go up to 3/4! Pulled over and I had a leaky heater hose. I googled auto repair in my area and MVAC popped up at the top and I noticed they had great reviews and in business for a long time and they were only one mile away. I called and spoke to a young lady and told her my situation. I know most repair shops schedule you days or weeks out but I was leaving in 2 days. That's when she let me speak to Marvin (I think the owner) and he said bring it in and we'll take a look. Marvin was very accommodating and he called me back 30 min after dropping off the car. He was able to replace the parts the same within a few hours and I was back on the road by 5:pm, 3 hours later. He did what needed to be done and didn't charge me extra or try to upsell me a new engine...lol OMG that's what I call a lifesaver! I was able to stick to my schedule and get my son moved in! I HIGHLY recommend Marvin and his shop to anyone!!!
