If the breeze from those open windows just isn't cutting it, come by our shop in Folsom, CA 95630 to get an expert opinion on what we can do to fix your auto A/C or heating problems. We offer affordable prices and guaranteed workmanship. Contact us at 916-985-3455, so we can help you drive in comfort.

Why maintaining your AC System is very important:
Heating and A/C systems may break eventually with usage, hose pipes may clog and drip if not serviced, causing reduced efficiency heating and cooling capabilities. Regular maintenance will keep your AC system operating at peak performance!

Indications your A/C system may be having issues:

  • If your air conditioning blows only slightly cooler air compared to the exterior air
  • Air that blows in smells damp, musty, or like mildew and mold
  • Your cabin does not warm up in cold weather, or is just a little warmer than outside
  • The defroster takes longer than typical to operate, or does not operate
  • Your heater or A/C only functions when driving, not when idling, or quits blowing when the car is stationary
  • Your heating system blows cold air, or the air conditioning blows warm air
  • Low airflow even at the highest fan setting.

A comprehensive evaluation of heating and A/C system includes:

  • Examining the internal controls and blower
  • Checking radiator coolant operating temperature, hoses, pressure radiator cap and thermostat
  • Inspecting the compressor belt
  • Inspecting system and seals for leaks or various other damages.
  • A cooling system pressure test
  • Verifying the A/C pressure meets manufacturer specifications
  • Measuring the interior vent air temperature

Air Conditioning
Have you been sweltering in your vehicle lately? Perhaps your car's air conditioner isn't functioning properly. At Folsom Auto Center we have qualified service professionals who can fix your air conditioner. To have an air conditioning system serviced, repaired, or replaced by experts consider visiting Folsom Auto Center. You can also call us at 916-985-3455 with any questions relating to your vehicle's air conditioner.

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 916-985-3455 or visit Folsom Auto Center in Folsom, CA 95630 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 Folsom Auto Center for all your vehicle's repair needs.

You not only have to get the belts replaced with quality ones but you should have the work done by experts. To have the belts replaced by auto cooling and heating experts - and get your car driving right - visit Folsom Auto Center today. The mechanics at Folsom Auto Center will thoroughly inspect your car's belts; replace all worn belts; and adjust the installed belts.

Hoses
Hoses transfer coolant and antifreeze throughout the engine's cooling system (including the radiator). Sooner or later, your vehicle's hoses will dry out and crack. When you are ready for a replacement you can count on Folsom Auto Center for all your vehicle's repair needs.

You not only have to get the hoses replaced with quality ones but you should have the work done by experts. To have the hoses replaced by auto cooling and heating experts - and get your car driving right - visit Folsom Auto Center today. The mechanics at Folsom Auto Center will thoroughly inspect your car's hoses; replace all worn hoses; and adjust the installed hoses.

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 Folsom Auto Center 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 916-985-3455 or visit Folsom Auto Center today.

Testimonials

  • My car overheated and I decided to bring my car her after someone recommended them. They were beyond helpful and even printed out information for me. They explained exactly what they were doing and why. It could have been more expensive, but they only charged the standard rate. I plan on going back again! Thanks Scott.

    -Laurel N.M.

  • Scott was patient and thorough as was Alex. They took their time to really think through solutions for a rather difficult problem and then took care of everything really well. They were caring and competent. Scott explained the problems and possible solutions in a way that even someone like me could understand. I really appreciated that!
    -Sally O.

  • A Big thank you to Scott and the excellent staff at Folsom Auto Center for solving several problems in my car in one day, including check engine light with multiple codes and engine running rough, which had been progressively getting worse. Problem identified, new part, expert fine tuning and now it is running like new. They also provided shuttle service so I could pick up my car. First rate service and repairs!

    -T B.

  • Always the best service from them. Very thorough technicians and the best prices that I have been able to find. I have always done my own work on my car because I don't trust shops to work on it, but I happily take it to this shop.
    -Russell N.

  • Took a truck in to get a pre purchase inspection, the guys got the truck into the shop and onto a lift within two hours of me calling and they quickly discovered deal breaking issues. Everything was smoothe and professional from the beginning, I was even given a significant discount for the fact that they did their job so quickly. Could not have gone better. From now on all of my vehicles will come here for any and all issues. Customer for life
    -Lyle W.

    -Debra D.

  • Scott makes you smile and his heart is made of Gold.
    -Linda C.

  • I went here after looking for a smog service. I think this location deserves 5 stars for being expedient and knowledgeable. I was explained in a way so that I could understand and I was not pressured to buy any service; in fact I was told to wait and save some money on a certain oil leak and that was important to me. This shop focused on safety and not unnecessary and/or costly repairs.
    -Joshua A.

  • Great, honest repair! Wouldn't trust anyone else with my vehicles.
    -Kala B.

  • Great Experience...Honest and knowledgeable guys ..Never knew about this place until my car keep failing smog test at other places and the reason they gave did not make any sense... Finally went to this place ..this guy (Alex) explained to me and fixed it without any additional cost and finally my car passed smog..
    -Ghor K.

  • They made a mistake but quickly fixed it! Good Service!
    -Drew P.

  • Really friendly staff and honest service, will definitely bring my cars back here if they have any issues. I had my car towed here because of the good reviews and I agree that they're well deserved.
    -Joshua H.

  • Love them. My family has been going to Scott for 30 some years. They are a little pricey but definitely worth it.
    -Kayla S.

  • This place is great, the guys that work there are pretty cool. Ron ( the owner) Is actually a really cool guy and Alex is really nice. The best part is that it's a family owned. These guys are doing a great job for their community
    -Akul K.

  • Went in today to because the headlights on my pickup were not working. Ron asked if I could wait while he looked into it. He then had two replacement bulbs delivered in about 10 minutes, installed them for free (no labor charge!) and all I had to pay for was the light bulbs. Yes, I will be back for ANYTHING that my car may need. Highly recommend this shop.
