Recharge The AC Freon In Your Car Or Truck

 89 Verified Review(s)

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 Familia Automotive at 720 E Hammer Ln
Suite E8 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 Familia Automotive in Stockton when it's time to recharge your AC freon.

Familia Automotive'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.
"Does Familia Automotive Have R12 Freon For My Classic Car?"

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 Familia Automotive today and talk with our mechanics about getting the job done right. Visit us today at 720 E Hammer Ln
Suite E8.

"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 Familia Automotive 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 Stockton 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 209-933-1829 and ask any of our auto repair specialists about recharging your car's AC. Stop by our store at 720 E Hammer Ln
Suite E8 and we will show you the best AC recharging options for your car.

what our customers say

Found these guys after a previous mechanic misdiagnosed my issue. They fixed my van in just a few hours. They were kind, professional and fast. After I drove off, my van was driving so much better. Definitely would trust them to continue working on my van.

Went in to have my brakes and rotors replaced, they gave me a complimentary inspection and a reasonable estimate (another shop quoted me almost $200 more). As a lady who knows little to nothing about cars, shops can be intimidating, and at their worst, exploitative of your lack of knowledge. I felt very comfortable in this shop, the owner was exceptionally friendly, informative, and fair. Will most definitely be returning for my future repair needs and spreading the word to friends and family about this new business. Give them your support!!!

I can just truly say. I was well pleased with the service I got bringing my car here! The service was absolutely on point. The owner was very nice and friendly and took really good care of me. He made sure he kept up with me about everything with my car. I love how they are very business structured. I would definitely recommend them to any. If you ever need your whip fixed take it down there. They'll get you right! :)
