Auto Air Conditioning Repair and Maintenance in Murrieta

inland-auto-murrieta-air-conditioning-repair

Summer is upon us here in Murrieta, and if you haven’t done so already, you will soon be turning on the air conditioning system in your vehicle. Most people take their air conditioning system for granted, and only think about it when it stops working. But most manufacturers recommend that you have your auto air conditioning system checked every two years. Bringing your vehicle in for air conditioning maintenance now, even if everything seems to be running well, can prevent costly repairs that seem to always be needed at the most inopportune times—like later in the summer, when temperatures are soaring above 100 degrees in Murrieta.

Job Report: Not Just Toyota Auto Repair and Japanese Vehicles

inland-auto-repair-murrieta

Although we specialize in auto repair and service for Japanese vehicles, many of our loyal customers have multiple vehicles. For one Murrieta customer, his 2011 Corvette needed some serious work and he trusted us to take care of it.

Ultimately, the vehicle just needed a new rear main seal and oil pan gasket. Not a very complicated or expensive repair at first glance. But in order to do the job properly, we had to remove both the transmission and differential. For those who know about auto repair and vehicles, you know that’s a fair amount of work. In addition to having the right tools and equipment, a job like this requires confidence and experience, and that’s why our customer asked us to handle the repair work.

Job Report: Camry Repair after another Murrieta Auto Shop Failed

inland-auto-toyota-transmission-repair-murrieta

It’s so important to work with a quality auto shop when your Toyota or Lexes needs service or repair. We’re often quite surprised by what we find after other Murrieta shops work on a vehicle. For this Toyota Camry, the customer recently had their vehicle serviced at a reputable auto shop. But the transmission started leaking fluid quite badly, so they decided to bring their car to us. After inspecting the transmission, we found that the previous shop had replaced the transmission gasket with a cheap rubber-style gasket. It only lasted for a short period of time and then started to leak a lot of fluid. In addition to the mess that a leaking transmission causes, there’s also the risk of overheating or under-lubricating the transmission, as the fluid needs to perform both tasks. In addition, the fluid in an automatic transmission is a key component to its operation, like changing gears. Needless to say, a serious transmission leak needs to be addressed quickly.
