Five Signs Your Car AC Needs To Be Serviced?

  • Your car air conditioning blows only slightly cooler than the outside air.
  • Your car's air conditioner blows air that smells like mildew and mold.
  • Your A/C only works while driving.
  • You have low airflow even at the highest fan setting.
  • Water condensing or dripping on your foot while driving.

Don't wait! If your car's A/C is working at reduced efficiency, it's worth a visit to Randy's Auto Repair and Tire. Taking care of regular maintenance now can help you avoid more expensive AC repair costs down the road. Sometimes fixing a broken air conditioner is as simple and cost effective as adding new coolant.

Most truck and car air conditioning systems break eventually with usage. Hoses that feed the AC unit may crack, clog or drip if not serviced. Let us service your car or truck and keep your cooling system performing at its peak. Call us at 727-575-7485 to learn more about how we can get your air conditioning running again!

Recharging Your Car's AC
Randy's Auto Repair and Tire in Largo for Recharging Your Freon Fast

In some instances when your car's air conditioning (AC) begins to lose its cooling power or fails to blow cool air, it may be time for a simple freon recharge. Recharging your freon is often a fast and inexpensive repair that can help you beat the summer heat. But leaking freon may be caused by a cracked hose or seal. It is often an indicator that a more significant repair is needed.

Repair Your Car's AC Compressor
Let Randy's Auto Repair and Tire Repair Your Car's AC Compressor

The cool air in your car is produced primarily by the compressor. The four main functions that your vehicle's compressor carries out include pressurizing the refrigerant to cool cabin air, monitoring and controlling temperature output, sensing temperature changes inside and outside the vehicle, and moving air to your car's AC condenser.

Repair Your Car's AC Condenser
Discover the Best AC Condenser Repair in Largo

Your vehicle's A/C condenser is usually located in the front of the radiator. When your AC compressor is pressurizing the refrigerant flows to the condenser to reduce the temperature and pressure. The condenser is a vital component in keeping your car's cabin temperature cool. It moves the cooled liquid refrigerant to the receiver/dryer or accumulator.

Testimonials

  • I'm a new snowbird and wanted to ensure my 13 year old Toyota Tacoma would get me back to Michigan safely. I wanted the serpentine belt replaced and the brake fluid flushed. Turns out my truck needed rear brakes and 3 universal joints replaced. They kept my truck overnight and made all the necessary repairs for me. As a bonus, they fastened and quieted an annoying exhaust heat shield rattle. GREAT JOB, GREAT SHOP. THANK YOU

  • We were on vacation and my starter failed. Was faced with the daunting task of finding someone honest and reliable to fix it. Randy did just that and he charged a fair price! Would definitely recommend using him.

    Well, I have to admit that all these small private operators are not sub-par mechanics. Randy, did front end struts, replacing both sides. Car was fixed promptly and done extremely good. My son wanted proof the work was done correctly, so off to Ford he goes, comes back and said the wheel alignment, was dead on the money. Since that time, Randy called me on 12/22/2020, to make sure all was still good. Bottom line, don't take your car anywhere else for repairs. Randy is HONEST, understanding, FAIR PRICED, and does what he says he will do. Thank you again for your great work.

    Car & Truck Care, near Clearwater, FL
    I broke down at a major intersection and remembered previously looking into this place and the great reviews. I called and he immediately rushed over to help me while I waited with the police. He saved me tow truck fees as well by not giving up until he found a way to get my car to the shop. Such a nice man and as a woman, I am forever grateful for the kind and honest work he does! One in a million mechanic, truly!

    Car & Truck Care, near Clearwater, FL
    I meant to review them when they replaced my brake pads and rotors. I had gone to CarMax to ask for them to do the same repair and they said it didn't need to be done. Randy was quite honest about it needing to be done soon. Got it done right then and haven't had any issues. Today, I got a flat tire (after having two replaced elsewhere). Immediately called and Randy told me I could bring it in. They patched up the tire and rotated them so the new tires would be in the front which should prevent this from happening in the future. Also, got an oil change as well. I highly recommend them to anyone in the Pinellas area. Moving forward, I'm going to remember to use their services for everything.

    I had a low tire light that wouldn't go out. Pulled in without an appointment. I was pulling out with aired up tires and no alert light in less than 15 minutes, with no charge. They were so nice and professional. I hope I don't have future car troubles but if i do I will go to Randy's.
