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 America Auto Service & Body Shop at 5524 W Fullerton Ave 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 America Auto Service & Body Shop in Chicago when it's time to recharge your AC freon.
America Auto Service & Body Shop's Fast 3 Step Process:
"Does America Auto Service & Body Shop Have R12 Freon For My Classic Car?"
- Vacuum out all the old refrigerant before refilling it.
- Add new R134a refrigerant.
- Pressurize your car's AC system and test for mico-leaks.
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 America Auto Service & Body Shop today and talk with our mechanics about getting the job done right. Visit us today at 5524 W Fullerton Ave.
"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 America Auto Service & Body Shop 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 Chicago 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 773-804-9040 and ask any of our auto repair specialists about recharging your car's AC. Stop by our store at 5524 W Fullerton Ave and we will show you the best AC recharging options for your car.

I've used America Auto Service countless times since I wrote my first review. Never a single issue, always happy and always priced right. Highly recommended!
I can't say enough about America Auto. Octavio and his team have been servicing my vehicles for over a decade, and I have consistently been impressed with the prices, the quality of the work, the prompt attention, and above all the HONESTY of the work. Octavio has a total enthusiasm for what he is doing for your car, and he shares that with you as the customer! Many times I have left his shop with a new education in how my vehicle works. You will always see the old part and the new part, with a thorough explanation on what was wrong and why. Very highly recommended!!
I am more than pleased with the service provided me by America Auto Service. Octavio and his team did a great job on my car which has a lot of issues. They explained me what exactly was the problem and finished everything very quickly and professional. Totally recommend!
I highly recommed this shop. Since the day I first arrived, it was great customer service. My car was involved in a car accident on Sept 03rd and before I decided to go with America Auto Service & Body Shop, I searched 2 other shops around the area that did not provide good customer service at all. They where more worried if the insurance was going to pay for the services or not. America Auto Service & Body Shop truly did a very good job with the repairs on my car. My car looks brand new and its a 2010 Honda Civic. I am satified 100% and if I ever need their services, i will come back without any doubt. Try them, you wont regret it.
