Recharge The AC Freon In Your Car Or Truck

Your truck or car's AC system is almost completely airtight, but your freon refrigerant is always slowly leaking out. Eventually, a car will lose enough freon so that its air conditioning system will no longer cool effectively. At Major Muffler & Auto Repair at 2870 Churn Creek Rd we are ready to recharge your AC to help you keep your car or truck's cabin temperature cool.

"Help My AC Only Blows Warm Air!"

New advancements in R134a freon systems means that freon in newer cars doesn't leak out as much as old R12 freon systems. The average new model economy car only leaks about 0.41 ounces of refrigerant per year. Come to Major Muffler & Auto Repair in Redding when it's time to recharge your AC freon.

Major Muffler & Auto Repair's Fast 3 Step Process:
  • Vacuum out all the old refrigerant before refilling it.
  • Add new R134a refrigerant.
  • Pressurize your car's AC system and test for mico-leaks.
"Does Major Muffler & Auto Repair Have R12 Freon For My Classic Car?"

Unfortunately R12 freon is no longer available. If your car or truck was made before 1994 you must convert your entire AC system to the new R134a standard. This involves replacing dozens of seals and several AC auto parts. R134a is a more highly pressurized and much more efficient refrigerant pound for pound than R12. Most classic car AC compressors and condensers cannot withstand the intense pressure required and choose to add about 25% less freon to accommodate older systems. This means your AC may not cool as well as it used to. Converting your R12 system to R134a is a big job so stop by Major Muffler & Auto Repair today and talk with our mechanics about getting the job done right. Visit us today at 2870 Churn Creek Rd.

"Is Used Freon Ok?"

Many auto repair shops resell used AC refrigerant. The old freon is cleaned using a specialized recovery machine that removes contaminants. Used freon provided by Major Muffler & Auto Repair works just as well as new freon after it's cleaned. Accepting used freon is a great way to help minimize the impact freon has on the environment.

Freon gas becomes a liquid when pressurized inside your car's A/C system but returns to its gaseous state as it leaks out. Many drivers in Redding are completely unaware that they are losing freon until the day when they turn on the car's AC and find only warm air blows out. Call 530-223-6640 and ask any of our auto repair specialists about recharging your car's AC. Stop by our store at 2870 Churn Creek Rd and we will show you the best AC recharging options for your car.

    We were passing through and the muffler started sounding really bad. It was 20 mins to closing before a four day holiday weekend. We were in and out and had our broken muffler fixed by the owner free of charge. Thank you!

    We were on a road trip when we found that someone had attempted to steal our catalytic converter. We called Major Muffler and they got us right in and 30 minutes later we’re back on the road. We were so grateful! We recommend Major Muffler very highly .

    I have an old suv. James and his crew have always been patient, professional, and have gone the extra mile. They provide top notch service and knowledge of all car systems. They do a lot more than mufflers. I highly recommend Major Muffler, and will continue to use them should the need arise. If you need auto repair please support this local business.
