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 Check Engine at 1221 Oklahoma Avenue 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 Check Engine in Woodward when it's time to recharge your AC freon.Check Engine'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 Check Engine today and talk with our mechanics about getting the job done right. Visit us today at 1221 Oklahoma Avenue."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 Check Engine 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 Woodward 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 580-256-8009 and ask any of our auto repair specialists about recharging your car's AC. Stop by our store at 1221 Oklahoma Avenue and we will show you the best AC recharging options for your car.

I have had my vehicle repaired at Check Engine on several occasions. They have always been courteous and listen to what my complaints about the problem I was experiencing with my vehicle. A very professional team.
Check Engine is a 5 star establishment in my books. I recommend if you have car issues don't waste your time going anywhere else. My parents came from Texas 4th of July weekend and had the transmission go out in their vehicle. Joey and the guys got them going with a new transmission with a guarantee in a timely manner and the estimate was right on the dot. Great job!
Mike and Joey were great to work with and went above and beyond to fix the issue with my truck. I would highly recommend.
I can't say enough regarding the integrity and high level of customer service at Check Engine. I was looking at a used vehicle that showed several visits to their shop on the Carfax report. I sent off an email, and received a call back from Joey within 10 minutes. He ran through the vehicle's service history and eased my mind regarding my desire to purchase the vehicle for my 17 year old daughter. If I lived in Woodward, I would not hesitate to take my vehicle to them. They offer a level of service you just don't find these days. Great Job!
