AIR CONDITIONING SERVICE

 

Did you know that without regular maintenance an air conditioner loses about 5% of its original efficiency per year? This means that without proper maintenance, your air conditioning unit may be performing as poorly as other models that are years older! But there is good news; you can still recover most of that lost efficiency. Schedule an appointment with one of Lalo’s Auto Services & Repair factory-trained professionals—we understand all aspects of AC repair, from modern computerized components to environmental disposal concerns. Turn to us, your qualified source for everything related to your air conditioning system. The following is a brief schematic of some of the basic components that comprise this system:

Compressor:


The compressor is a belt-driven device that compresses refrigerant gas and transfers it into the condenser. The compressor is the core of your vehicle’s air conditioning system.

Condenser:


The condenser’s primary function is to cool the refrigerator. The condenser dissipates heat released by compressed gases and condenses them into high pressure liquids.

Receiver (Drier):
The receiver is a metal container that serves as a storage receptacle for the refrigerant; also known as a drier because it absorbs moisture from the refrigerant and filters out harmful debris and acids. You should change your drier every 3-4 years to ensure quality filtration and prevent any chemical damage.

 

TRANSMISSION REPAIR

 

Modern automatic transmission are the most complicated mechanical component in today’s vehicle. The automatic transmission contains mechanical systems, hydraulic systems, electrical systems, and computer controls that work together to power the engine to drive the wheels. With so many parts working together, this can lead to your transmission needing special attention. Lalo’s Auto Services & Repair is more than qualified to help you with your transmission service in our Corona location.  Transmission maintenance leads to a longer vehicle life. Typically trouble with the transmission starts from overheating. Stop-and-go traffic, heavy pulling, struggling in the snow, hot weather, and racing can cause your transmission to overheat. At higher temperatures the transmission fluid burns. Your vehicle loses lubrication and deposits inside the transmission increase. We recommend that you bring your vehicle in to Lalo’s Auto Services & Repair Corona for service as soon as you believe your vehicle is having transmission problems.

To prevent your transmission from damage:

  • Check your parking space for leaks regularly. If you notice fluid deposits under your car, have  one of our technicians inspect it right away.

  • Check the transmission fluid levels and condition. Change it when necessary.

  • Make sure you use the correct transmission fluid as specified in your owner’s manual.

  • Make sure to stop your vehicle before shifting into reverse or park.

  • Always hold the brakes down when shifting from park.

 

Paying attention to your transmission will help increase the lifespan of your vehicle, save money on costly repairs, ensure smooth shifting, extend your transmission fluid’s life, and help prevent leaks.

WHEEL ALIGNMENT

 

When your vehicle alignment is not proportioned correctly, two issues may occur:

  • Driving becomes more expensive

  • Driving becomes more dangerous

 

Driving without proper alignment costs you money. Not only does flawed alignment decrease gas mileage and tire life, but it also adds stress to your vehicle’s steering equipment and structure. Ideally, your vehicle’s wheels should run perpendicular to the ground and parallel to each other. Lalo’s Auto Services & Repair starts by adjusting these wheel angles will bring your vehicle back into proper alignment.

Driving without proper alignment puts you at risk. An out-of-alignment car pulls and drifts away from a straight road and may cause an accident. Excessive tire wear—another result of bad car alignment—leads to tire blow-outs and poor traction, which also causes accidents. Bring in your vehicle to Lalo’s Auto Services & Repair, our certified mechanic alignment experts will make sure your vehicle drives smoothly and safely. We look forward to helping you stay on the road without worry.

 

ENGINE COOLANT

 

 

Lalo’s Auto Services & Repair technicians will explain all the necessary to keep your engine from overheating and needing major work. Ethylene glycol, better known as anti-freeze, is the neon green liquid that flows from your engine and then through your radiator to cool it. The liquid is able to cool by passing through tubes inside of the radiator. As the liquid passes through these tubes, the heat from the liquid is displaced by the tubes and small “fins” connecting the tubes of the radiator. The liquid flows through these fins and tubes and the surrounding air is warmed by the displacement of heat. The liquid’s heat is lost by allowing the radiator’s assembly to “radiate” the heat caused by the liquid into the air. A fan pushes that hot air away from the radiator. Air heats up fast, so replacing the warm air around the radiator with cool air is extremely important. When the coolant finally exits the tube and fin assembly of the radiator, it has been sufficiently cooled and passes through the engine again.
