Summer Solstice hits on Saturday, June 20, 2020, which is right around the corner. Therefore, if a BMW’s air conditioning system is performing poorly now, imagine what things will be like when the triple-digit temperatures arrive. Refrigerant leakage is one of the most common reasons why the air blowing through the car’s vents is let’s say lukewarm at best. Finding the culprit responsible for the leak is often easier said than done.

After all, it could be a busted gasket, a line with a pinhole, or something else. Thankfully, Vista residents don’t have to face the task of tracking down the culprit alone. Instead, they can contact Bob Workman’s European Automotive and schedule a/c repair service. Our mechanics have the experience to find and fix pesky leaks.

Then, they will recharge the system and get everything back in working order. In turn, clients won’t have to fret about the heatwaves coming up, as the atmosphere inside their cars will be cool and refreshing. Now, let’s take a peek at some other items that can leave an a/c system blowing anything but cold.

A Blocked A/C Condenser

A vehicle’s a/c condenser is the item between the front grill and radiator, which resembles a radiator itself. Refrigerant is supposed to travel throughout the unit and back through the system. However, now and again, these devices can become clogged with debris. When that happens, the coolant cannot move. Thus, the air coming through the a/c vents will not be cold. Mechanics can sometimes clean and clear the buildup. Meanwhile, on other occasions, the fix is to replace the condenser.  

The Clutch Is Failing To Cycle On/Off

On the front of a car’s a/c compressor, there is an electromagnetic clutch. If the part fails to engage, the compressor won’t kick on, which results in no cold air. There could be various reasons for this issue. For instance, the assembly itself might have gone bad. Low refrigerant can be to blame as well. Then again, a faulty clutch cycling switch could be the culprit. With so many possibilities, vehicle owners should consider taking their cars to an automotive shop, as their mechanics can diagnose and fix the problems with ease.
