How much does it cost to fix my car air conditioner?

How much does it cost to fix my car air conditioner?

Let's face it, it is HOT outside and we all need Air Conditioning! But how much is it going to cost to fix your air conditioner?  Well just like there is no avoiding the fact that we all need air conditioning,  we all know that it can be expensive at times.  But do not despair, over 95% of our customers air conditioning repairs are a minor component and not a major failure or system replacement. Similar to most other automotive systems, the air conditioning system is made of many individual components. These components can be repaired and replaced individually. For this reason, it is very important to have a trained and certified mechanic service your system and know that you are making the proper repairs and not spending frivolously. Our experience is that a minor system component can be anywhere from $150-$550. Before you worry have the system tested and we will provide a clear estimate of the repair cost along with a 2 Year and 24,000-mile warranty.&nbs ... read more

What is a CV Boot?

What is a CV Boot?

What is a CV Boot? CV stands for constant velocity. The CV boot is designed to hold the lubricating grease in on the constant velocity joint while keeping dirt and debris out. These boots are constantly flexing and rotating as your car moves down the road. Over years and miles, the boot can eventually crack and release the lubricating grease. As the grease is allowed to escape the boot can no longer protect the joint and wear and damage will occur. Depending on your individual vehicle the boot can be replaced to save the expense of axle replacement!    Find us at: https://www.facebook.com/FRANKSSERVICENTERhttps://www.youtube.com/c/Franksservicenter/videoshttps://www.instagram.com/franksservicenter/ #franksservice #franksservicenter
