Why is my car’s A/C not working?

You get into your car on a hot summer day, only to find that the air conditioning system isn’t working as it should. It may not work at all, or you may find that it just isn’t as cold as it used to be. Whatever the issue is, you find yourself in an uncomfortable sweat stuck driving in the heat.

The air conditioning system has many different working components, and an issue with the A/C can stem from the refrigerant, the condenser, the cooling fan, the compressor, the evaporator, and more. Here are some symptoms to keep an eye out for that can indicate a problem with your vehicle’s A/C system:

  • Air blows warm when A/C is turned on
  • Max A/C isn’t as cold as it used to be
  • Mold or mildew smell when A/C is turned on
  • Strange noises coming from vents
  • No air blows out of vents

As soon as you notice any of the issues listed above, we invite you to EurAuto shop for a thorough air conditioning system inspection. We often find that a part has failed and needs to be replaced, or that your system just needs to be recharged. Regardless of what your vehicle needs, you can trust that our professionals will get you back on the road driving comfortably again.

One common issue is low refrigerant, which indicates a leak. This fluid never evaporates on its own, so low refrigerant is almost always due to a leak somewhere in the system. This type of leak can lead to issues with other surrounding components, so getting this fixed quickly is important. This is why we suggest to never let an A/C system go unattended and to bring your vehicle into our shop at the first sign of air conditioning trouble.
