Automotive Tips from Tuffy Rockford: Air Conditioning Inspection

September 5, 2021

Most auto manufacturers recommend an interval for an air conditioning system inspection. The inspection uncovers leaks, worn hoses and assesses the condition of the other components.

Environmental laws in some around Loves Park require leaks to be repaired before refrigerant can be added. Also some parts manufacturers require other components to be replaced along with certain failed parts in order to maintain the new part warranty. This is because a given failure may be the result of another worn or damaged part that will, if not replaced, prematurely damage the new component.

Tuffy Rockford in Loves Park is fully equipped to restore your flow of cool air.
