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 BJ's Automotive at 2010 Donville Ave 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 BJ's Automotive in Simi Valley when it's time to recharge your AC freon.BJ's Automotive'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.
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 BJ's Automotive today and talk with our mechanics about getting the job done right. Visit us today at 2010 Donville Ave."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 BJ's Automotive 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 Simi Valley 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 805-527-7741 and ask any of our auto repair specialists about recharging your car's AC. Stop by our store at 2010 Donville Ave and we will show you the best AC recharging options for your car.

We had a customer come in today on a Hyundai Sonata and wanted to get a personal inspection with a mechanic they use. I have to say that from the very moment we pulled in Sue was there to help. They went over and assessed whole vehicle and gave it a clean bill of health. But, it's not the clean bill of health that impressed me, it was the honesty and thoroughness in which they looked out for one of their own customers and wasn't looking to upsell. As well, it also shows the integrity we have as a company in the PreOwned vehicles we provide. I have seen other clients use various service centers in the local area (Simi, Conejo and San Fernando Valley) and get told they need to do a various service work like flushes and tune up, or something was leaking on a vehicle that was still under factory warranty. My bother-in-law and various friends and acquaintances use and recommended them and now I know why! The service and integrity of BJ's Automotive is just too notch!!!
