Musty/Mildew Smell You turn your car's air conditioner on expecting a blast of cold air but instead, you get a blast of musty air in your face.

What Is Auto Detailing?

There’s no better feeling than stepping into a clean, almost new, car. It can be pretty difficult for most of us to keep our cars in the same condition as when we first got them. Not only does cleaning your car take time and energy, but we might not have all the right tools and supplies to do so. If you’re trying to deep clean your car, you should consider a professional detailing service. How Is Auto Detailing Different Than a Car Wash? There is DEFINITELY a difference between these two car cleaning services. They are often used interchangeably, but one is definitely more involved than the other.

What is a Head Gasket Leak?

What is a Head Gasket Leak?

Head gaskets are important seals in the engine block of your car. They keep all of your coolant, oil, and intake air from escaping through the cracks and gaps between moving parts. If you've ever seen white smoke coming out of the tailpipe when you start up your car, it's likely because there's coolant leaking into the combustion chamber from a head gasket that's failed. The head gasket is the most vital component in keeping an engine running smoothly, so if it leaks or fails altogether, you'll have to replace it before driving yourself anywhere. The process of replacing one can cost hundreds of dollars or more depending on how old your vehicle is and how many other problems it has (in addition to any special tools you may need). The head gasket is a seal that prevents fluid and gases from leaking between the block and the head. The job of both parts is to keep the cylinders sealed off from one another, meaning that either both parts need to be intact or neither o ... read more

Why Is My Air Conditioning Not Cool?

There's nothing more annoying than having to drive around Jupiter, FL, in the spring and summer without cold A/C. There could be a number of reasons why your car is blowing warm air. Here are some of the potential culprits: Loss of Refrigerant - Refrigerant, or freon, is the chemical source responsible for cooling the air in your vehicle's AC system. A freon leak can happen from any exposed area within the system. Whether it's a punctured hose or leaky evaporator, you will need a professional mechanic to locate the source and patch it up. Poor Condenser - The condenser keeps everything cool. Over time, the condenser can get clogged, which can cause it to no longer keep the air cool. Broken Compressor: On the other hand, the compressor is the part of the system that helps move the refrigerant throughout the A/C system. This part can stop working from natural wear and tear too. Electrical System Issues: Sometimes, it isn't the A/C system's fault at all. Instead, i ... read more
