There is nothing better after a hot summer day at work then getting into a cool comfortable car for the ride home. Your vehicles climate control system is something you do not think about until you car has turn into a small oven on wheels.

Over the past few years new government standards and technology advancement have made drastic changes in your vehicles air conditioning system. Smaller , higher pressure systems that use small amounts of refrigerant have put more stress on its components than ever before. In the past small changes in proper charge amount did not effect system performance. However, today even a 10 % change in proper charge can result in poor performance and premature system failure. The years of buying some refrigerant and charging the system yourself are gone. Even though the materials are available with out the proper digital scale and evacuation equipment it is impossible to get the charge level for refrigerant and oil at the correct amount.

The reason charge amounts of the liquid refrigerant is so critical is because the refrigerant is not only responsible for the temperature change in the system but it is also responsible for lubrication delivery. The refrigerant picks up the system lubricant , suspends it and delivers it throughout the system to lubricate the compressor and valves. Lack of proper charge and lubrication is the main cause of compressor failure. To make maters worse when a compressor fails and needs replacement there are additional services and parts that must be serviced in order to make the new compressors warranty valid , this can result in a costly repair.

The good news is if the system is serviced properly with the proper charge levels and procedures to eliminate moisture the system it can function properly for several years without any major cost. We have the latest air condition service equipment that conform to the new standards for proper charging procedures. This combined with or technicians experience can assure you and your vehicles air condition and you of many comfortable years together.

Coolant System Flush
A car's air conditioning system contains a coolant which transfers excess heat from one part of the engine and finally loses it through the radiator fins. With time, the a/c coolant becomes old and dirty. The old coolant will negatively impact the system's performance. To make sure the system is working effectively, consider having a regular coolant system flush. A coolant flush is basic maintenance for your car's cooling system. Call 716-695-1567 or visit John's Motor & Transmission in North Tonawanda, NY 14120 for all your coolant system flush and fill needs. Ensure maximum performance from your vehicle's heating and cooling systems today.

Belts
A fan belt, also known as a drive belt, is a belt connecting your car's engine to the front mounted accessories. The fan belt rotates the water pump and engine fan, which maintains a cool environment for the engine and its components. Sooner or later, your vehicle's fan belts will dry out and crack. When you are ready for a replacement you can count on John's Motor & Transmission for all your vehicle's repair needs.

Radiators
Radiators are heat exchangers for cooling your car's internal combustion engine. A radiator cools the engine by circulating an engine coolant through the engine block - it then loses the heat to the atmosphere through radiation. A radiator has a set of tubes through which the engine coolant flows. Fins surround these tubes. When the radiator fails, the excess heat produced by the engine could damage the engine components. To prevent this from happening, have your radiator serviced regularly. To have your radiator needs handled by experts, visit John's Motor & Transmission today.

Radiator Flush
A radiator is the part of your vehicle that keeps the engine cool and protects it from excessive heating. To be cool, the radiator needs to remain clean - always. With time, sludge, rust and other solid deposits build up inside your car's radiator. These make the cooling system become clogged and less effective. This in effect hurts your vehicle's performance. A regular radiator flush is enough to keep the system in shape. For this reason, make radiator flushing a part of your routine car maintenance schedule. For all your radiator flush needs, call 716-695-1567 or visit John's Motor & Transmission today.
