Vehicle Air Conditioning Diagnosis
Diagnosing air conditioning faults is a specialist task, requiring knowledge, skills and equipment. If your air conditioning isn’t working correctly trust the job to a garage that will carry out a diagnostic assessment. Including, mechanical, electrical and an evaluation of the system pressures. Too many garages will simply regas the system and send you on your way, only for you to find it doesn’t work a few days/weeks later. In this case, it is almost certainly a leak.
There are various methods used for leak detection, some are simply ineffective others are illegal. The correct method is to use oxygen-free nitrogen (OFN) under pressure and detect the leak using either a ‘sniffer’ or a soap solution.
The increasing complexity of modern cars hasn’t bypassed the air conditioning system. Dual climate control is no longer the preserve of high-end limos and is commonplace in family saloons. So the integration of the vehicle’s electronic systems is a must as part of the diagnostic routine. There are various electrical components that can prevent the system from operating correctly.
An air conditioning service is routine maintenance and does not include diagnosis or repairs it will typically include:
It’s estimated that a car’s air conditioning system will lose about 10% of its refrigerant every year. In order to maintain its efficiency, most manufacturers recommend getting it serviced every 2-3 years.
As with most things to do with cars, the price can vary depending on many variables, but a typical family saloon using R134a refrigerant costs £85.
