Auto Air Conditioning Repair and Maintenance in Murrieta


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.

Often times, when a vehicle’s air conditioning unit is not functioning properly, it’s because the system needs to be recharged. When a vehicle comes into our Murrieta auto mechanic shop for air conditioning maintenance, one of the first things we check is the refrigerant that runs through the system. The refrigerant can become contaminated, and in that case, it needs to be removed. The refrigerant can also be leaking out through cracked seals in your system. If this is the case, the seals need to be replaced and new refrigerant needs to be added to the system. It is important that leaks be repaired promptly. Failing to do so can result in costly damage to the entire air conditioning system.

The refrigerant in your auto air conditioning system is important for more than just keeping you cool, it also contains lubricants that are necessary to keep the system running smoothly. If the refrigerant becomes contaminated or if levels are low, your air conditioner may continue to function for a while, but sooner or later, the system will seize up, and major repairs will be needed.

It’s also important to have your compressor inspected, including the compressor belt, which can crack or wear down over time, and to have your air conditioning system checked for leaks in the system’s hoses and connections.

Our technicians are factory-trained in Lexus and Toyota cars and trucks, and are also experienced in servicing most Japanese vehicles. You can feel confident that at Inland Auto in Murrieta, your vehicle will receive expert service. If your vehicle’s air conditioning system isn’t keeping you as cool as you’d like, if it’s beginning to make noise, or if you want to bring your vehicle in for air conditioning maintenance, give us a call today.
