Auto AC Condenser Replacement in Walnut Creek, CA

Auto air conditioning system keeps us cool on hot summer days, and ac condenser is one of the key parts of the a/c system. At Diablo Auto Specialists in Walnut Creek we offer broad range of automotive ac services and repairs, including a/c condenser replacement. The a/c condenser is a radiator that allows the refrigerant to shed heat in the condenser, and change state from gas to liquid, so that it can be pumped again through the air conditioning system.

Condenser leaks are, unfortunately, a fact of life. If there is a condenser leak, the a/c system will have lower level of the refrigerant, which may result in less effective operation. You will need to bring your vehicle to have the refrigerant refilled to the proper level. California laws require that we test the system for leaks, and repair any leaks before refilling the refrigerant, in order to prevent atmospheric pollution.

Typically you will notice that something is wrong when the cold air is not cold enough, or it’s downright warm. The good news is that it does not necessarily indicate a refrigerant leak. It can also be a disabled cooling fan, or a clogged a/c condenser coil. Our technicians are highly skilled at auto air conditioning system testing and repairs. If they suspect a leak, we can add an ultraviolet dye to the refrigerant, so we can spot the exact location of the leak. Sometimes it may be as simple as cleaning up the crud that builds up at the front of the condenser – this may restore at least partial cooling capability.

If a/c condenser replacement turns out to be necessary, we can get your vehicle fixed and return it to you the same day (assuming parts availability).

Repairs performed at our Walnut Creek auto repair facility carry 36 months / 36,000 miles nationwide warranty.

So if the air conditioning in your automobile does not work correctly, bring your vehicle to Diablo Auto Specialists in Walnut Creek – we will test the a/c system and let you know what repairs are needed. We offer convenient appointments on our website, or call us at the shop.
