Do All A/C Systems Use Refrigerant?

All air conditioners use a refrigerant, whether it's your car’s HVAC system, a central heating and air system, or your home’s refrigerator. Refrigerant is what makes the system operate. Refrigerants are compressed from gas to liquid – when a liquid, they’re cycled from the condenser through the rest of the high-pressure side, where they absorb heat. When they reach the low pressure side, they transform back to their gaseous form and begin to dissipate the heat they’ve absorbed before being recirculated through the system once more.

Types of refrigerant
Freon is a brand name registered to DuPont... Read more

How to diagnose and correct sputtering engine sound in a car

Description of this noise: An engine sputter is best described as an inconsistent harmonic sound coming from the engine. When an engine is tuned correctly, it typically sounds smooth and definitely not choppy. As the engine accelerates, the engines harmonics are equally smooth. A sputtering engine will rise and fall rapidly, may have periods of stalling or rapid acceleration or deceleration.

What causes this sound? Essentially sputtering is the end result of incomplete combustion. It's typically caused by ignition timing problems including ignition coil, distributor, rotor, spark plugs and spark plug wires. In some rare instance... Read more

How Long Should an Engine Last?

How long an engine lasts requires a long list of variables to consider before a time frame or mileage can be given. I have seen engines last less than 40,000 miles and others that lasted more than 300,000 miles. When it comes to the time an engine will last you, look at mileage per year or how the vehicle is stored if there is very low mileage on the engine. Think of a 1916 car engine that is driven only 100 miles a year and put in storage after each use. After 100 years the engine will only have 10,000 miles on it. This motor may last a few hundred years before it would need rebuilding or replacement. This is why we use mileage to rate... Read more

Common Causes for Coolant Leaks 3 Common Causes for Coolant Leaks

he cooling system in your car is vital to the proper functioning of the car’s engine and sometimes coolant leaks can toy with your car's efficiency and effectiveness. The car's coolant system works by circulating a coolant and water mixture under pressure through pipes through your engine and radiator, thus cooling the engine. The temperature of the coolant rises as the car runs and the coolant expands so any excess coolant in the system moves into a reservoir tank by way of rubber hoses. But when this system isn't working properly, you risk running into expensive repairs. Fixing a coolant leak as soon as possible is crucial.

Symptoms of a Bad or Failing Thermostat

A car thermostat regulates the flow of coolant through the engine and is an incredibly important player in the operation of your vehicle’s engine. You may hear the phrase “the thermostat was stuck open or closed.” When the engine has been sitting for a while and is not warm, the thermostat will be closed. Once the engine is running and reaches a certain operating temperature, a sensor inside the thermostat will cause it to open, allowing coolant to flow to and from the radiator, decreasing the temperature so it can be recirculated through the engine again. This constant flow (in conjunction with several other cooling s... Read more
