Do I need car heater repair?

If you turn on your car’s heater on a chilly morning and your vehicle stubbornly refuses to blow warm air, 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 Main Street Shell 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! Our team of technicians can perform this type of car heater repair quickly and safely to get you back on the road in comfort.

Heating System Red Flags:

  • Low or intermittent air pressure coming from the vents
  • Defroster takes longer to work or doesn’t work at all
  • Cold air instead of warm
  • Musty or mildew-smelling air blowing through the vents
  • Puddles of coolant around the vehicle

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.

If your car’s A/C is producing no air, 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.

If your car’s A/C is producing warm air, come to Main Street Shell for an evac and recharge.  An expert mechanic will use a special machine to take the existing refrigerant 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 A/C system.

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 vents
  • Puddles of coolant around the vehicle
  • Warm air instead of cool
  • 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

How much will my car’s heating or air conditioning repair cost?

For most heating and air conditioning issues, our technicians will need to pop the car hood to find out what’s wrong. Because of this, we typically wait to quote any A/C or heating repair until after we’ve diagnosed the problem.
