Common Auto A/C Problems

The sun is always shining in Kaneohe, which means many of us are still blaring our car’s air conditioning in December. And without working A/C, your car rides can quickly turn miserable. Auto A/C is no longer a luxury but an essential for Hawaii drivers. 

Auto air conditioning systems have evolved and become more complex as technology improves. If you want to stay comfortable in your ride, make sure to repair any A/C problems you may have. Below are some of the most common problems and indications that you need A/C repairs:

Weak Airflow 

Most cars nowadays allow you to precisely control the temperature and airflow of their air conditioning system. If you turn on your A/C to only be met with little to no airflow coming out of the car vents, then you likely have an air conditioning problem. This can be attributed to a hose or fan problem, but it is best to take your car to Willy's Transmission & Air Conditioning for accurate inspections and repairs.

Not Cool

When a car’s A/C no longer feels cold, the most common culprit is a lack of refrigerant. This chemical is responsible for cooling down the air inside the cabin. However, the loss of cooling factor can also be due to a faulty compressor, blown fuse, or malfunctioning evaporator. We can recharge your A/C or replace any parts if necessary to restore the coolness in your car.

Foul Odor

Bad smells can be just as comfortable as hot air. When your A/C starts to smell bad, it is usually related to a dirty or clogged filter. Mold and bacteria can collect in the filter to emit a mildew smell. You will need help clearing out the lingering smell.

Loud A/C System

Your car’s air conditioner should run silently. If you overhear weird sounds, like rattling, it is probably due to a problem with the fan. However, a louder shriek can be caused by a nearby belt. To be on the safe side, bring your car to our shop for an A/C inspection.
