Recharge The AC Freon In Your Car Or Truck

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 Blacksmith European Motorworks at 8767 Irvine Center Drive #M 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 Blacksmith European Motorworks in Irvine when it's time to recharge your AC freon.

Blacksmith European Motorworks'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 Blacksmith European Motorworks 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 Blacksmith European Motorworks today and talk with our mechanics about getting the job done right. Visit us today at 8767 Irvine Center Drive #M.

"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 Blacksmith European Motorworks 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 Irvine 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 949-753-1575 and ask any of our auto repair specialists about recharging your car's AC. Stop by our store at 8767 Irvine Center Drive #M and we will show you the best AC recharging options for your car.

What People Say About Us

  • reviewicon

    The folks at the Blacksmith European Motorworks really take care of their customers and their cars. I have a 1986 Volvo that has needed many repairs in the last year and they helped me every step of the way. Stephan and his team rebuilt my whole exhaust system so that I could pass smog for a fraction of what I thought it was going to cost. They really look out for the customer and never give up on the cars that they love. This will always be my first choice for any service big or small.

    Blacksmith European Motorworks provides honest, reasonable priced service, with great results. My Volvo S40 just had it's tune up the the guys there are very honest with you. If it is just an oil change that is what you get. If they detect upcoming problems, you are informed and are given the information needed to either have work done then or wait a couple months. This honesty is something I treasure, plus they outstanding job they have done with my car.

    I came from Seattle, and my 9.5 Saab started oil leak. I took my car to Blacksmith European auto shop and received warm welcome. Immediately my car checked and diagnosed and source of problem found. I recommend this shop to all Saab owners.

    They repaired my car as scheduled, helped me understand the safety features, and followed up as promised. I don't feel crazy for owning a Saab in this shop, or at least I feel comfortable with it. It is a very comfortable waiting area, and there are a variety of good restaurants nearby, so I would go back for regular service from people who I believe would notice anything else that might become a problem.

    I can't say enough good things about our experience at this shop. My teenage daughters just bought a used Volvo a few months ago, and when it needed repairs we brought it in to Ken. As usual we were extremely satisfied from start to finish. We have known him for many years and he is always very professional and trustworthy. His shop is clean and the waiting room is very pleasant. The repairs were done quickly and the girls were happy to be back in their car! I highly recommend Blacksmith European Motorworks

At the front counter, Ken gives attention to ensuring that the customer understands the work order and that the pricing is fair. Behind the scenes, Blacksmith's highly-qualified mechanics are treating every car like it is their own. If your need is major work or simply a tune-up, stop in, you won't be disappointed. And, no, I am not family or friend; I am, truly, a super satisfied customer. Thanks Blacksmith European Motorworks!
