Don’t limit yourself to just checking emissions controls – use your smoke machine to check numerous vehicle systems.
The amount of refrigerant required by vehicle A/C systems has decreased during the past two decades.
A bad A/C compressor and a bad

It is not a question of if but when you’ll have to deal with R1234yf refrigerant. Here’s what to expect.
The heat eventually burns out the blower motor resistor, and, in many cases, causes the electrical connector to melt.
This condition may be due to deposits from the engine coolant becoming trapped in the heater core.
Currently, there are approximately 35 million vehicles on the road with R1234yf in the HVAC system.
Toyota vehicles may exhibit odors naturally occurring from the HVAC system and/or related environmental factors.
HVAC systems have come a long way in the past 15 years. While the basics of heating and cooling may be the same, the controllers and sensors have improved dramatically. No longer does a driver have to worry about dealing with fogged-up windows or bad smells driving behind a semi-truck.
HVAC systems often fail because the air conditioning compressor fails. Not following the proper service procedures or compressor oil recommendations could be factors that contribute to premature compressor failure.
Dorman HVAC Heater Hose Connectors are made to resist brittleness, cracking and coolant leaks. The hose is designed to withstand extreme temperatures from the engine’s coolant for long-lasting durability. Additionally, the Y-connector material is upgraded from plastic to aluminum to prolong the service life of the part.
As vehicle owners in many parts of the country begin using their air conditioning systems for the first time this year, some will be surprised to find their A/C system is not functioning properly or isn’t blowing out cold air like it used to.
