Clean Air for Your Engine: A New Engine Air Filter at Aero Auto Repair

All of us in San Diego know we have to get the oil changed in our vehicles periodically. That's just part of good vehicle care. But when Aero Auto Repair technicians change your oil, they also usually inspect your air filter. That's why they sometimes let you know that your air filter needs to be changed before releasing your vehicle.Don't just chock this up to trying to sell you something else.

Automotive Tips from Aero Auto Repair: Air Conditioning ? Common Problem

Your auto air conditioning system cools and conditions the air in your passenger compartment when you are driving around San Diego. It also removes moisture from the air to keep your windows from fogging up.A common A/C problem for San Diego drivers that visit Aero Auto Repair is contaminated refrigerant (the gas that cools the air). The inside of the A/C hoses deteriorates over time and tiny fragments of rubber clog passages. This makes the system less efficient and overworks various components.Leaks can develop at seals and gaskets and may reduce the amount of refrigerant, causing the system to work too hard to compensate. Dirty components can have the same consequences.Ask your Aero Auto Repair service advisor for an air conditioning system inspection to make sure everything is up to spec.Aero Auto Repair9756 Aero DriveSan Diego, California 92123858-467-9999http://www.aeroautorepairsandiego.com

Temperature really affects auto battery performance. A battery inspection is an important part of your spring and fall checkups. Next time you're under your hood, take a look at your battery. Is it clean and free of residue? A dirty battery will drai ... read more
