AC Maintenance Keeps You Comfortable Year-Round
Vehicle A/C and heating systems break down, just like other car parts. But you can keep these systems running their best for when they count most, simply by keeping up with regular maintenance.
Signs of A/C system issues include:
- A/C air blows only slightly cooler than outdoor temperature
- Blowing air smells musty, moldy, mildewy or damp
- Heated air blows only slightly warmer than outdoor temperatures
- Defroster does not work or takes a long time to work
- A/C or heating only works when driving, not when sitting still
- The heater blows cool air
- The A/C blows hot air
- Air does not flow through vents as it should
Bring your car, truck or SUV into Cloverdale Auto when you experience A/C or heating problems. Our friendly, ASE-certified technicians conduct a comprehensive evaluation of your A/C and heater to diagnose the problem.

Important Parts in Your Vehicle’s A/C System
Your vehicle’s A/C and heating systems have many critical parts. These include belts, hoses, radiator, condenser and the coolant system.
The coolant system requires regular maintenance and fluid replacement, called a coolant system flush. Belts tend to dry out with age, eventually cracking if you do not replace them according to your manufacturer’s specifications. Hoses also dry out and crack with age, requiring replacement and proper installation of new parts by a qualified technician.
Your car, truck or SUV relies on a working radiator to keep the engine cool and protect it from overheating. This system plays a big role in your vehicle’s ability to cool the interior cabin. These parts must remain clean and free of rust, solid deposits and sludge. To keep your radiator in top shape, you can trust Cloverdale Auto’s thorough inspections and service performed by our exceptional technicians.
