Do I need car A/C repair?
If you turn on your car’s air conditioner and nothing happens, that’s a dead giveaway that you need car A/C repair.
There are other signs that indicate your car’s air conditioning system needs work. When something changes about your air conditioning, make note of what’s going on. Does it match any A/C issues listed below?
A/C Red Flags:
- Low or intermittent air pressure coming from the A/C vents
- Puddles of coolant around the vehicle
- Warm air instead of cool (this is a big one)
- Unusual noises like rattling, banging or loud blowing
- Musty odors from the A/C
- Pools of water or the appearance of water stains inside the vehicle
Virginia Tire & Auto: Car heating and air conditioning repair experts
The expert mechanics at Virginia Tire & Auto understand the various parts of your car’s complex heating and air conditioning system. We’ll solve your car heating and A/C problems quickly and efficiently.
At Virginia Tire & Auto, one of our mechanics will inspect, diagnose and complete expert car heating and air conditioning repair and service. We’ll make sure that your system is operating effectively and that you’re comfortable on the road, whether temperatures outside are hot or cold.
If your car is pumping out warm air:
If your car’s A/C is producing warm air, we’ll ask you to come into one of our 15 Virginia Tire & Auto locations across Virginia for an evac and recharge. An expert mechanic will use a special machine to take the existing Freon out of your air conditioner and then refill the correct amount. We’ll also add a UV-reactive dye—this allows us to see if there are any leaks in what should be a closed AC system.
If there aren’t any leaks, a certified technician will refill the refrigerant and your car A/C repair will be complete.
If your car is producing no air at all:
If your car’s A/C is producing no air at all, there could be an issue with your blower motor, resistor, compressor or another mechanical or electrical component of your air conditioning system. A service professional will ask you to bring your car in for a full diagnostic check so our certified mechanics can make the right car A/C repair for you.

Do I need car heater repair?
If you turn on your car’s heater on a chilly morning and your vehicle stubbornly refuses to warm up, then yes, you definitely need car heater repair.
Your car is heated by a small radiator in your engine called the heater core. Sometimes, the valve that controls the heater core gets stuck — and you’re stuck with a cold car. Fortunately, the expert mechanics at Virginia Tire & Auto can handle this car heating repair for you.
Other times, your car’s engine simply needs a coolant flush. Old coolant can get dirty and grimy! This car heater repair can be performed quickly and safely by our team of technicians at Virginia Tire & Auto.
