BENEFITS OF AN AIR CONDITIONING SERVICE
Air conditioning keeps you cool and comfortable during hot summer conditions. The air conditioning system also helps improve visibility by aiding the de-misting of your windows in damp and cold weather.
Each year, the efficiency of you air conditioning system deteriorates by up to 15%. This is due to refrigerant loss. This can result in excessive moisture build up and poor circulation of lubricant. This in turn can cause component failure. It is recommended by most manufacturers to service and recharge your air conditioning system every 1-2 years.
Our Air Conditioning Service includes:-
- Air conditioning system vacuum
- Leaks checked and inspection for cracks
- Old oil and gas removed
- Gas impurities burnt off
- Tracer die – if needed- added to the system
- New oil added to the system
- Refrigerant gas added ( to manufacturers specification)
- Operating pressures tested
- Cooling effect tested
- Further diagnostic investigation or servicing if required
Cars are considered to be like computers on wheels due to todays advanced vehicle technology. It is therefore imperative that workshops have fault diagnostics equipment along with the best technical expertise available providing customers with a professional service.
Auto 101 continually invests in fault diagnostics equipment and training ensuring that the technicians are well equipped to deal with fault diagnosing including but not limited to:-
- Engine Management
- Fuel Injection Systems
- Anti-Lock Braking Systems
- Electronic Diesel Control Systems Safety Related Systems
- Comfort Systems
- Infotainment Systems

Vehicles have many sensors, from the engine, to road wheels, traction control and temperature sensors. The sensors convey information back to the ECU (Electronic Control Unit). Should one of these sensors have a fault, such as:-
- Loosing it’s accuracy
- Relaying anomalous readings
- Outside of the set parameters
- Or is out of the ordinary,
The ECU reveals a light on the dashboard. This does not necessarily mean that there is a running fault with the vehicle. There may not be any difference with the drivability, but the light coming on means that there is something wrong somewhere. The Auto Workshop Diagnostic Computers plug into your vehicle’s ECU through the On Board Diagnostic plug and is able to detect the source of the fault.
However, this unfortunately does not mean that our computers are able to point to the faulty component in question and the problem is solved. This would be great. When we have a reading from the computer diagnostics, it requires the experienced technicians to interpret the fault code and then advise the best course of action.
Occasionally, there can be a non-specific fault code retrieved from the computer diagnostics. This means that the fault code points to a system rather than to a component. It is at this point that we try our best to eliminate potentially faulty components. Starting with a combination of what is most likely, in our experience and known as fixes and also cheaper components. This avoids spending your money on expensive components that are not necessary.
