A vehicle’s climate control system is comprised of multiple, smaller systems that work together to maintain a comfortable cabin environment. It is important to maintain your climate control system yearly for optimal performance. The climate control system is able to affect and regulate the internal temperature of a vehicle; air conditioner (cool) and heater (hot).

Typically the climate control systems primary function is to improve the comfort levels of both drivers and passengers. There are times however, over the course of the year, when maintaining the ideal internal temperature becomes more than a matter of comfort. In severe weather conditions, maintaining the proper internal climate can actually factor into automotive safety. This is why it is important for you to seek climate control repairs at the first sign of trouble.

Importance of Climate Control Systems

When your vehicle’s climate control system malfunctions or stops working, it is important to schedule a climate control repair service. In addition to regaining the comfortable cabin environment you enjoyed prior to your system’s problems, you can help ensure your safety as a driver. If you pay attention to the warning signs of an impending climate control system service, you may be able to prevent a broken system and subsequent safety concerns.

In addition, your owner’s manual should provide recommended regular service intervals for climate control systems. Catching early warning signs and replacing or repairing climate control system components as necessary will help ensure your ability to control air flow at all times.

The “check engine” or “service engine” light is a sure sign that your engine should be looked at by an expert sooner rather than later.

Most of the time, your vehicle’s On-Board Diagnostics System will detect an engine issue and store the corresponding repair code, which can be accessed by a member of our service staff. Slow-cranking, rough idling, stalling, knocking, or pinging while accelerating are all signs that you should seek engine repairs or engine diagnostics to determine the full extent of your engine trouble.

A decrease in gas mileage and detectable loss of power during acceleration are also signs of an impending engine tune-up or engine repair service. Engine warning lights help alert drivers to minor issues before they become major repairs.

Be sure to follow up with our staff once your vehicle’s On-Board Diagnostics System detects a problem with your engine.

Description of Engine Diagnostics and Performance

Discrepancies in performance levels are reported through your vehicle’s computer system. Once the “check engine” or “service engine” light is displayed, your next step should be to seek out an engine diagnostic service or an engine tune-up.

Engine diagnostics allow our staff to gather helpful information about the operating condition of your engine. The insights obtained during an engine diagnostic will determine the extent of suggested engine repairs. The most common diagnostic trouble codes are generated in response to malfunctions in the power-train.

Ultimately, regular engine tune-ups are necessary to optimize engine performance. A tune-up is also one of the most effective ways to prevent unexpected engine trouble.

During an engine tune-up, our staff may replace the spark plugs, spark plug wires, air filter, fuel filter, and distributor cap and rotor in your vehicle. Our experts will also check emission levels, fuel lines, and belts and hoses. Engine diagnostics and regular engine tune-ups can help extend the life of your vehicle and improve the health of your engine.
