The air conditioning unit in your vehicle operates similarly to a refrigerator. Your vehicle’s air conditioning unit is designed to move heat from the inside of your car to outside of it.
Your vehicle’s air conditioning unit has six major components:
When you start your vehicle’s air conditioning system, the compressor works by putting the refrigerant under pressure, sending it to the condensing coils, which are generally in front of your vehicle’s radiator. The condenser expels hot air to outside the car, cooling the air within the vehicle. When this happens, the refrigerant is cooled, and it changes form a gas to a liquid, which then passes through the expansion valve and to the evaporator.
Once the evaporator receives the liquid-state refrigerant, it loses pressure and cools the remaining liquid. The vehicle’s blower moves air across the evaporator and into the vehicle’s interior. If you keep your air conditioning unit turned on, the refrigerant goes through this cycle continuously.
If any of these components is damaged, it can turn your cool car into a furnace during the summer months. Your vehicle’s air conditioning issue could be as simple as topping off refrigerant to replacing a valve. When your air conditioning unit is not working as it should, bring your vehicle to Bruce's Auto Center. One of our trained air conditioning specialists will inspect your car’s air conditioner, all lines, the evaporator and the compressor for leaks and wear.
Fuel/Air Induction Clean-up
Over time, deposits build up on intake valves, injectors, ports, fuel injectors and combustion chambers within your vehicle. These build-ups can cause loss of power, shaky idling, hesitation, hard starting, misfire, pinging and knocking noises and, perhaps worst of all,poor gas mileage.
Our team of experts uses specialized fuel system and air induction cleaners and conditioners to clean your vehicle’s fuel injectors, throttle body, intake valves, ports and air intake. These cleaners and conditioners remove harmful combustion chamber deposits from all these components, allowing your engine to run more smoothly. By cleaning the induction system thoroughly with specialized equipment and conditioners and cleaners, our team can make your
vehicle run more efficiently.
The quality of the gasoline you put into your vehicle can vary greatly. When the gasoline is of poor quality, it can cause deposit buildup. Modern vehicles—especially those with gasoline direct injection—are particularly sensitive to deposits that build up in fuel injectors, intake valves and ports. Using specialized equipment, our technicians will quickly and effectively clean the intake manifold, ports, intake valves and combustion chamber and install injector cleaning additives in your vehicle’s tank. This service will restore lost power and performance and will reduce harmful exhaust emissions.
