Many vehicles on the road today use an older variety of refrigerant called R12 or Freon. Due to stricter environmental laws, this product is no longer manufactured. While the current supply of R12 is dwindling, the price is climbing. Clear Lake Auto Service customers, however, have the option of converting to a new EPA-approved refrigerant called 134a. Most passenger vehicles manufactured after 1993 have the new 134a refrigerant.
Conversion to 134a is different for each vehicle, with many requiring the installation of a new compressor. At Clear Lake Auto Service, we will provide an estimate for repair of the old system and an estimate to retrofit to 134a.
Does your vehicle start slowly? Do extreme temperatures affect your vehicle’s ability to start? Does your vehicle need to be jump started? Any of these conditions may indicate the need for service or repairs to your vehicle’s starting and charging system.
