Five Signs Your Car AC Needs To Be Serviced?

  • Your car air conditioning blows only slightly cooler than the outside air.
  • Your car's air conditioner blows air that smells like mildew and mold.
  • Your A/C only works while driving.
  • You have low airflow even at the highest fan setting.
  • Water condensing or dripping on your foot while driving.

Don't wait! If your car's A/C is working at reduced efficiency, it's worth a visit to Protrans Automotive & Transmission Specialists. Taking care of regular maintenance now can help you avoid more expensive AC repair costs down the road. Sometimes fixing a broken air conditioner is as simple and cost effective as adding new coolant.

Most truck and car air conditioning systems break eventually with usage. Hoses that feed the AC unit may crack, clog or drip if not serviced. Let us service your car or truck and keep your cooling system performing at its peak. Call us at 951-367-7400 to learn more about how we can get your air conditioning running again!

Recharging Your Car's AC
Protrans Automotive & Transmission Specialists in Riverside for Recharging Your Freon Fast

In some instances when your car's air conditioning (AC) begins to lose its cooling power or fails to blow cool air, it may be time for a simple freon recharge. Recharging your freon is often a fast and inexpensive repair that can help you beat the summer heat. But leaking freon may be caused by a cracked hose or seal. It is often an indicator that a more significant repair is needed.

Repair Your Car's AC Compressor
Let Protrans Automotive & Transmission Specialists Repair Your Car's AC Compressor

The cool air in your car is produced primarily by the compressor. The four main functions that your vehicle's compressor carries out include pressurizing the refrigerant to cool cabin air, monitoring and controlling temperature output, sensing temperature changes inside and outside the vehicle, and moving air to your car's AC condenser.

Repair Your Car's AC Condenser
Discover the Best AC Condenser Repair in Riverside

Your vehicle's A/C condenser is usually located in the front of the radiator. When your AC compressor is pressurizing the refrigerant flows to the condenser to reduce the temperature and pressure. The condenser is a vital component in keeping your car's cabin temperature cool. It moves the cooled liquid refrigerant to the receiver/dryer or accumulator.

Good Day; The service at "Protrans" was "Top Notch "! Before I took my car to "Protrans", I took it to another service center and I was told that it needed a Transmission Replacement to the tune of $3,500.00. I then took it to "Protrans" for a second opinion and their tech found that all that was needed was for the front wheel bearing to be replaced. That was a savings of over $3,000.00 dollars! So if you need ANY work done on your automobile I would have "PROTRANS" check it out first.

Very grateful and impressed with Hayley, Jeff and Mike at Protrans. Dealer quoted $3000 for a new transmission. Took it to Protrans for a second opinion. They honestly called and reported that it was just an issue with the driveshaft and $150 later I was out the door. I appreciate the honesty and integrity of Jeff and this company. Would highly recommend and would return!

If you're looking for an honest and affordable automotive service, this is the place. I took my 2010 Ford Focus and they fixed my issue at a reasonable price and provided recommendations to enhance my vehicle. I did take the recommendations and my car runs like new. They have great customer service and now I'm a loyal customer!
