Protect Your AC
At West El Cajon Automotive & Transmission, we love being able to help you get the best from your vehicle. But with that said, if there’s a way for you to protect your car and save money on service, we want to make sure you know about it. This applies to your vehicle’s AC system, as there are multiple things you can do to ensure it’s performing well, saving you a trip to our shop. Here’s what you can do:
- Coldest setting, full blast: remember the saying “if you don’t use it, you’ll lose it?” This applies to your car’s AC system. Although it’s frequently used in the summer, seldom is the AC even touched during the colder months. So what should you do instead? During colder months, make sure you have the AC at full blast and it’s coldest setting for at least 10 minutes once a week. Doing so helps maintain gas pressure and keeps the compressor working properly, which ensures your AC is working come summer!
- Clear debris: no matter how well you drive, it’s likely your car will hit some sort of loose debris like leaves, twigs, and even bugs. But these types of things can get stuck in your car’s exterior grill, and that can hinder your AC’s performance by clogging the AC and condenser. To avoid this, simply use a hose and wash away any debris on the exterior grill.
