Recharge The AC Freon In Your Car Or Truck
Your truck or car's AC system is almost completely airtight, but your freon refrigerant is always slowly leaking out. Eventually, a car will lose enough freon so that its air conditioning system will no longer cool effectively. At AASTRO Transmission & Auto Repair at 5302 E Speedway Blvd we are ready to recharge your AC to help you keep your car or truck's cabin temperature cool."Help My AC Only Blows Warm Air!"
New advancements in R134a freon systems means that freon in newer cars doesn't leak out as much as old R12 freon systems. The average new model economy car only leaks about 0.41 ounces of refrigerant per year. Come to AASTRO Transmission & Auto Repair in Tucson when it's time to recharge your AC freon.AASTRO Transmission & Auto Repair's Fast 3 Step Process:
- Vacuum out all the old refrigerant before refilling it.
- Add new R134a refrigerant.
- Pressurize your car's AC system and test for mico-leaks.
Unfortunately R12 freon is no longer available. If your car or truck was made before 1994 you must convert your entire AC system to the new R134a standard. This involves replacing dozens of seals and several AC auto parts. R134a is a more highly pressurized and much more efficient refrigerant pound for pound than R12. Most classic car AC compressors and condensers cannot withstand the intense pressure required and choose to add about 25% less freon to accommodate older systems. This means your AC may not cool as well as it used to. Converting your R12 system to R134a is a big job so stop by AASTRO Transmission & Auto Repair today and talk with our mechanics about getting the job done right. Visit us today at 5302 E Speedway Blvd."Is Used Freon Ok?"
Many auto repair shops resell used AC refrigerant. The old freon is cleaned using a specialized recovery machine that removes contaminants. Used freon provided by AASTRO Transmission & Auto Repair works just as well as new freon after it's cleaned. Accepting used freon is a great way to help minimize the impact freon has on the environment.
Freon gas becomes a liquid when pressurized inside your car's A/C system but returns to its gaseous state as it leaks out. Many drivers in Tucson are completely unaware that they are losing freon until the day when they turn on the car's AC and find only warm air blows out. Call 520-325-5500 and ask any of our auto repair specialists about recharging your car's AC. Stop by our store at 5302 E Speedway Blvd and we will show you the best AC recharging options for your car.

Patrick and his entire team are nothing short of amazing. Honestly, integrity, and a true mastery of one’s skill set are a rare combination these days. This location was recommended to me by a friend and boy am I thankful. We purchased a used vehicle that wouldn’t pass emissions. Prior to hearing about Astro on Ina, we’d taken this to another transmission shop across town. Not only did they miss diagnose the issue, but they tried confidently talking my wife into an over $8,000+ transmission replacement. This was more than we paid for the vehicle. After paying a few hundred dollar diagnostic fee I reached out to friends I knew in the industry for a 2nd opinion shop. That’s how I found out about Patrick and his team. Patrick’s team found this was a small sensor failure outside of the transmission and had it fixed within a few days. Additionally, after hearing the car was new to us, their team proactively looked it over for us. They found minimal issues from wear and tear that I happily asked them to complete. The cost was about 1/4the the other companies quote AND the other companies repair scope wouldn’t have even fixed the issue! Since, we have taken 2 of our other vehicles to Astro on Ina. The quality of work, customer service, and communication has continued to be outstanding. The pricing, more than fair. I will quite literally be telling everyone I know about this location.
