What Does your AC do?
A cars cooling system works to keep you cool in the summer and your engine cool all year round no matter the outside temperature. Your vehicle's air conditioning system is complex. Its main job is evaporation and condensation as well as compression and expansion. Basically, it is thermodynamics for all the smart people out there. However, it is not too hard to understand and you only need to comprehend a few basic things to put together how it all works. The Compressor is the core or heart of the cooling system. It takes refrigerant in gas form, pressurizes it, and then sends it through a condenser. The condenser is a series of refrigeration lines that turns the pressurized refrigerant vapor into liquid form. Once in liquid form, it goes through a receiver dryer to eliminate any moisture from the refrigerant that may have collected during the pressurization process. Pressure is removed and then the cool air is circulated throughout the vehicle. The radiator, evaporator, condenser, and expansion valve work together to safeguard your engine from overheating year-round and keeps you cool in the summer.
Does my Vehicle’s AC Need Maintenance?
Yes from time to time and your car AC will need maintenance, service, or maybe even repair. Save time and check your fluid levels; the correct amount of refrigerant is important and necessary. DO NOT OVERFILL! This is one mistake; you do not want to make yourself. If your ac is not working well try adding refrigerant, this could save you valuable time and money; but it might not fix the problem. If that does not work bring your vehicle to Silver Lake Auto & Tire Centers. For optimum performance, we suggest having your cooling system inspected every 20,000 miles or refer to your owner's manual for specific intervals. Stay ahead of costly ac repair with routine inspection and maintenance with Silver Lake's car ac repair specialists.

I needed my vehicle repaired within 2 days for a road trip. Silver Lake got it in, inspected and repaired in about 1 day. Fixed all of my issues and after 1,200 miles its running great!
I highly recommend this business and the manager Josh was very professional and Nice. They Kept me up to date on what problems they found and provided me with a detailed report with pictures showing the problem areas. They also have loaner cars at no charge which definitely helps lower the stress level when it comes to needing to get to work or around town.
Going to a mechanic is always scary when something is wrong with your vehicle and you have minimal knowledge about them. Silver Lake Auto was very courteous and thorough, complete with pictures. They laid out what needed to be done immediately and what can wait in "non-mechanic" terms. They also let us use a courtesy vehicle for a day so I didn't have the hassle of having to shuttle during business hours as well as have transportation to work the next day. They made that process easy and ... Read More

I originally called Silver Lake Auto & Tire when I tried to start my car one day after work and something just wasn’t right. It was idling really high and frankly, I was afraid to drive it. So, like any other person who may know nothing about cars, I googled the nearest place with the best reputation and, their name came up. And I’m so glad it did. I had them tow my car to their shop that evening and waited nervously the next day to hear back. The next morning, I was messaged all the ... Read More
I have a high mileage 14 year old luxury SUV. The body is in great shape, interior is flawless. The check engine light came on. I feared the worst. Although it was not inexpensive, they were very honest and professional. Gave me the option to have the repairs or not. No high pressure and they were spot on with their diagnosis and cost was exactly what tjey quoted. It was nice to have the courtesy car too. Great customer service. I will definitely return if I have service needs in the... Read More
