Heating & AC System Repair

What They Do

The functions of your Heating and A/C systems are meant to keep your vehicle cabin at warmer temperatures in the winter and cooler temperatures in the summer. The A/C system specifically offers a dual purpose of working your defrost in the winter season. The Heating systems consist of: a heating unit core that functions like a small radiator behind the front dashboard, a fan, and hoses that control the temperature from the engine to the center. The A/C systems work in a similar manner, directing coolant to the fan which then sends cool air into the cabin. Your heater and A/C don’t completely operate off electric parts which differ from a residential heating and cooling systems. Instead, they make use of the energy from the heat and the cooling capacity of the engine to adjust the temperature.

Why Service is Necessary

Heating and A/C systems will wear out gradually depending on the level of usage. The hose pipes can get blocked and leak if not adequately serviced. This can lead to a decrease in performance of the heating and cooling capacities. Proper maintenance will help keep your vehicle comfortable for you and your passengers.

How to Know when your Heating & A/C Needs Repair

Feels like:

  • The A/C output temperature is only slightly cooler than the outside air
  • Vehicle interior does not warm up in winter or is just slightly warmer than the outside air
  • The heating unit distributed cool air and/or the A/C unit distributes hot or warm air
  • When the unit is set to the highest fan setting it distributes little to no air

Smells like:

  • Air from the vent smells damp, rotten, or musty
  • Air blowing from the defrost smells dirty

Looks like:

  • The windows take longer to defrost than previous operations
  • The defrost function does not seem to work at all
  • Your heating unit or A/C only functions when the vehicle is in motion and stops distributing air when the vehicle is stopped or in park
What We Do During A Comprehensive Diagnostic of Your Heating and A/C Systems
  • Examine the interior and fan
  • Measure radiator coolant level
  • Inspect hose pipes, pressure cap, and thermostat
  • Compressor belt examination
  • Inspect for leaks or additional damages
  • Examination of the cooling system pressure
  • Comparing the air conditioning pressure to producer specifications
  • Test the A/C system for refrigerant holes
  • Measure the interior vent air temperature
Frequency of Check Up and Repair

Heating and A/C systems will have wear and tear over time depending on usage. Appropriate routine maintenance helps maintain the cabin temperature of your vehicle for the comfort of you and your passengers. Make sure to schedule your heating and A/C inspection prior to extreme season changes, this will ensure you have the most positive driving experience for the upcoming season’s weather conditions. Complete Auto Diagnostics & Repair offers quality Heating and A/C repair services in The Moose Lake/Barnum service area.

Air Filters

What They Do

The engine may be harmed by things like mold, mildew, pollen, microbes, and dust. Air filters keep the air that moves in to the engine clean from clutter. Most vehicles have 2 varieties of air filters. The internal combustion air filter is a filtrations system that eliminates pollutants from the air as it enters the engine. This reduces wear on the engine over time. The cabin air filter is a ventilation system that eliminates unsafe particles from the A/C and heating systems as it enters past the engine and into the cabin of the vehicle.

Why Service is Necessary

Dirt and particles can easily damage engine components, cause delayed performance, and reduce proper air flow to the vehicle cabin. A dirty air filter can also cause complications with fuel economy, fuel efficiency, fluid distribution, and may cause additional engine repairs. Air filters that are worn down or unclean cabin can negatively affect A/C performance and could have adverse health effects for the driver and any passengers.

How To Know When Your Car Filter Needs a Change
  • Reduced engine power or fuel economy
  • Fuel and Fluid Emissions are irregular
  • When vent output is on there is an irregular, wet, or musty smell
Frequency of Check Up and Repair

It is best to have the cabin air filter changed between every 12,000 miles and once a year. Internal combustion air filters should be checked often and changed every 3,000 – 15,000 miles or in conjunction with your oil changes. Air filters will require more frequent checks and replacements when the vehicle is subjected to extreme driving conditions, polluted roadways, off-roading, high construction areas, or icy roadways treated with ice salt.  

If you have any questions or concerns about your air filter quality contact us today. Complete Auto Diagnostics & Repair is thrilled to be your local auto repair center in The Moose Lake/Barnum service area.

Batteries

What They Do

Your car’s battery is imperative to starting your engine. The energy from the alternator is stored in the battery and this runs the secondary electrical systems which includes your lights, radio, power seats, power windows, and additional electrical components in your car. Your vehicle’s electrical system supplies power to everything from the ignition and fuel systems to add-ons such as your radio, headlights, and wipers.

Tips For Battery Care

Batteries are chargeable so it is best to carry jumper cables or a transportable battery charging system in your vehicle in case of unexpected emergencies. You never know when you might need these items for yourself or another driver in need of assistance. When your battery is worn out, reuse it! Battery recycling can reduce the resources needed for manufacturing new batteries. When you reuse your batteries, you also help keep poisonous chemicals from entering and polluting landfills while reducing other adverse effects that poor disposal can have on the environment.

How To Prolong The Life of Your Battery
  • Maintain and remove rust and add anti-corrosive protection

  • Keep hold-down clamps and terminals tightened

  • Occasionally test battery conditions

  • Check the alternator belt tension and wear

  • Turn off front lights, cabin lights, and the vehicle radio when the vehicle isn’t in use

    Complete Auto Diagnostics & Repair would be happy to assist you in Battery Replacement.

Belts & Hoses

Why Service is Necessary

Belts may wear and break over time. When a belt becomes worn it can slip or become so loose that it will not function properly. Hoses will often glaze and split after long years of use or when exposed to extreme temperatures. When a hosepipe is damaged it may lead to vital fluids leaking from your engine and cause further damage to other engine components. Routine checkups can help prevent the most common causes of breakdowns. 

How To Know When Your Belts and Hoses Need Repair
  • Loss of power
  • Grinding or Squealing sound from the engine compartment
  • There are vibrations, ‘slips’ or ‘catching’ while in operation

It is suggested to have belts and hoses checked every 3,000 miles or with every oil change. 

What We Check For During A Belt and Hose Inspection
  • Glazing, breaking, “stripping” and softening of belts

Brake Repair

What They Do

Brakes are used every time you drive your vehicle and are one of the most crucial safety features on your vehicle. Most Automotives run on one of two standard brake systems; Standard brakes and ABS (Anti-Lock Brake System). Typically a braking system consists of the rotor, the caliper, and brake pads or shoes. If your brake pads wear and are not repaired or replaced, you could also require replacement of the other brake system components.

How to Know When Your Brakes Need a Tune Up
  • High-pitched squeak when you push the brakes
  • Scratching or grinding noise when not braking (additionally could be an indication of a bearing concern and should be evaluated immediately)
  • Shaking or vibration while coming to a stop
  • More pressure to the brake pedal is required to come to a complete stop

**If you drive regularly in urban traffic areas or live in a hilly region where braking happens at a higher volume it is recommended to tune up more frequently

How to Maintain Your Brake System
  • Disengage the parking brake while in drive

  • Regularly measure brake fluid and replace as required (adding fluid frequently may mean you have a hole somewhere in the system)

Cooling Systems

What They Do

Your Vehicle Cooling Systems reduce the temperatures to assist all additional engine components in working effectively. There are spark plugs inside your engine that ignite the gas within the engine cylinders. This generates small explosions which move your automobile down the road. These small explosions reach burning temperatures that may damage your engine, if not cooled properly. In most cooling systems, there is a coolant fluid that then enters the engine through designated passages and absorbs the heat given off by the engine. When it relocates down the rubber tubes, it is cooled by the air entering through the vehicle grill. There are many vital components to a cooling system that need to be checked to ensure proper functioning.

Why Service is Necessary
  • Staying up to date with your vehicle cooling system can be difficult. Our staff of licensed mechanics specializes in cooling system maintenance and know-how to best keep your vehicle in proper working order. Eventually, your cooling system will develop scale deposits which will restrict coolant circulation and will require your cooling system to be flushed. Having a properly educated and licensed specialist to carry out standard examinations will ensure your vehicle remains effectively cooled and working for many years to come. 
What We Check for In a Cooling System Inspection
  • Examine hoses and belts for holes or cracks
  • Measure fluid levels and conditions
  • Signs of rust and other forms of deterioration
  • Check for deposits or fluids that show signs of damage or leaks
  • Proper functioning of all components, fans, and the thermostat
How to Maintain Your Cooling System
  • Your coolant levels should be inspected during every oil change
  • It is best to flush your antifreeze and coolant system every 30,000 to 50,000 miles or every 2 years
  • When driving in extremely cold temperatures, it is important to have appropriate levels of antifreeze in your car. This keeps your liquid coolants and other fluids in your engine safe from freezing.
