Five Signs Your Car AC Needs To Be Serviced?
- Your car air conditioning blows only slightly cooler than the outside air.
- Your car's air conditioner blows air that smells like mildew and mold.
- Your A/C only works while driving.
- You have low airflow even at the highest fan setting.
- Water condensing or dripping on your foot while driving.
Don't wait! If your car's A/C is working at reduced efficiency, it's worth a visit to C & J Auto & Truck Service Center. Taking care of regular maintenance now can help you avoid more expensive AC repair costs down the road. Sometimes fixing a broken air conditioner is as simple and cost effective as adding new coolant.
Most truck and car air conditioning systems break eventually with usage. Hoses that feed the AC unit may crack, clog or drip if not serviced. Let us service your car or truck and keep your cooling system performing at its peak. Call us at 804-275-2560 to learn more about how we can get your air conditioning running again!

Repair Your Car's AC Compressor
Let C & J Auto & Truck Service Center Repair Your Car's AC Compressor
The cool air in your car is produced primarily by the compressor. The four main functions that your vehicle's compressor carries out include pressurizing the refrigerant to cool cabin air, monitoring and controlling temperature output, sensing temperature changes inside and outside the vehicle, and moving air to your car's AC condenser.

Discover the Best AC Condenser Repair in Richmond
Your vehicle's A/C condenser is usually located in the front of the radiator. When your AC compressor is pressurizing the refrigerant flows to the condenser to reduce the temperature and pressure. The condenser is a vital component in keeping your car's cabin temperature cool. It moves the cooled liquid refrigerant to the receiver/dryer or accumulator.
Repair Your Car's AC Evaporator

The Thermal Expansion Valve or Orifice Tube monitors the amount of pressure and temperature of your A/C system to calculate the precise amount of refrigerant that can safely go into the evaporator. Uneven pressure can allow unwanted moisture to accumulate in a car or truck's AC system.
My wife's van was having issues keeping the air conditioning nice and cool, especially in the back for our kids. After getting the run around at another shop "because the car is black, it's normal", we decided to bring it here. We are extremely pleased with the services we received. They found the problems, got the warranty taken care of so we only came out of pocket for our deductible. As hard as parts can be to get right now, they still had it finished in a day and everything is running perfectly now!! Will continue to come to them for any service we need from now on! Very friendly and genuinely care about customer satisfaction.Christopher Hanchey
Amazing mechanic shop! I'm new to the Chester area and my car A/C broke! I'm so glad to have found them through a google search. Immediately the store manager got me in right away! He is a great leader! He is honest and trustworthy! He has a desire to educate and treats his employees very well! On top of all that this place is affordable! As a women it's so hard to find a decent and honest mechanic shop that won't rip me off or take advantage that I'm a women! My A/C is running ice cold! I highly recommend this place!Genesis J
Amazing mechanics and techs. The owner wade is very knowledgeable and helpful and the receptionist is very kind
The technician Mr. Atkinson did an amazing job. He was polite, timely, precise, and kept my car clean from oil & grease while he was inspecting it. I have had a previous shop get grease and oil all over my seat and my floorboard, so this was important to me. I absolutely will be going back again for my car needs.
