Keep Your Cool in Winnetka: Air Conditioning Service

Posted January 3, 2021 11:39 AM

Most Winnetka drivers don't even think about their air conditioner.

Now here's a tip for Winnetka vehicle owners: Run your air conditioner every so often during CA winters. This circulates the lubricant to help keep the seals from drying out.

The air conditioner actually removes some of the moisture in the air. So if you have trouble with fogging on your vehicle windshield during CA winters or during a rain storm, running the A/C on the defrost setting should help. Now on some Winnetka cars you can't run the A/C at the same time as the defroster. Don't ask me why, but I suspect lawyers were involved.

Also, air and water can get into the A/C system. That can reduce the efficiency of the system and also lead to corrosion that causes damage. Winnetka drivers should periodically purge the system and replace the refrigerant to remove the air and water.

CA drivers would be wise to learn the early warning signs of A/C trouble: 1) The air's not as cold as it used to be. 2) It makes unusual noises when the A/C cycles on. Those are signs to get your vehicle into A.G. Automotive & Diagnosis in Winnetka before the damage gets worse.

By following the recommended service intervals in your vehicle owner's manual, you can help prevent mechanical failure of your air conditioning system. Your A/C system contains some components like the compressor, condenser, dryer, etc. Anything Winnetka car owners can do to lengthen the life of their A/C is well worth it.

Came in to get oil changes for both mine and my wife?s car and had an electrical problem looked at on my wife?s car! They got us in early, got my car out fast and took care of all of the problems on my wife?s car by the next day! All in all they were great at AG auto ! Plus they recommended a great smog check guy !

The shop was very accommodating and got me in for the afternoon wheel alignment as a walk-in customer. Prices were reasonable and no nickle and diming me on service. What they quoted on the verbal estimate was honored and their follow-up after care was very impressive. The owner actually reads the reviews and was very responsive to my minor concern regarding the alignment printout. He immediately replied with apologizing for not having that attached to my receipt and quickly sent me my copy they had on record. He also awarded me a FREE oil change for my concern. I will definitely return for care at this shop.

A.G. Automotive is by far the best auto diagnosis and mechanic in the San Fernando Valley. Their lead Master mechanic Chuck is extremely experienced and is able to diagnose the hardest of Engine and Electrical issues on just about every make and model. I took in my Porsche Panamera S to A.G. for their Oil and Lube service recently and was in and out in a flash. The car is purring now but it was not always the case. A few years back the engine seized and I was fortunate enough to be referred to A.G. for a tow in diagnosis. Chuck was so excellent in figuring out what the issue was that Porsche North America had little argument against a manufacturer defect and ended up covering a $16,000 repair. Prices are very fair and low for the level of expertise that you are getting. Highly recommended, especially when you don't know what is wrong with your car and need an honest mechanic to fix it for you.
