Have you been sweltering in your car because of a broken air conditioner?
At CarTech Automotive we really care about you, and your car, and want you to be cool and comfortable every summer, whilst you are traveling in your vehicle with icy cold air con.
Your air conditioning system is made up of a compressor, a condenser, an evaporator (or drier), refrigerator lines and a couple of sensors here and there. The compressor puts the refrigerant under pressure and sends it to the condensing coils. In your car, these coils are generally in front of the radiator. Compressing a gas makes it quite hot. In the condenser, this added heat and the heat the refrigerant picked up in the evaporator is expelled to the air flowing across it from outside the car. When the refrigerant is cooled to its saturation temperature, it will change phase from a gas back into a liquid (this gives off a bundle of heat known as the “latent heat of vaporization”). The liquid then passes through the expansion valve to the evaporator, the coils inside of your car, where it loses pressure that was added to it in the compressor. This causes some of the liquid to change to a low-pressure gas as it cools the remaining liquid. This two-phase mixture enters the evaporator, and the liquid portion of the refrigerant absorbs the heat from the air across the coil and evaporates. Your car’s blower circulates air across the cold evaporator and into the interior. The refrigerant goes back through the cycle again and again.
Refrigerator leaks, Compressor problems, Bad switches, bad fuses, broken wires, broken fan belt (preventing the pump from turning), or seal failure inside the compressor could be the cause of AC failure. At CarTech Automotive we will carefully inspect and replace any faulty part.
The cooling system in your car works to keep your engine from overheating, and that is a very important job. If your vehicle overheats, it can mean the death of your engine, costing you thousands.

Your car’s suspension is a part of the chassis, or all the systems underneath the body—like the frame, steering and wheels. The suspension system includes all the shocks, struts and ball joints that keep your vehicle balanced on the road. If you feel your car bouncing excessively over bumps or leaning hard when you’re making a turn, it could be a warning sign about your suspension. You also don’t want to risk any wear-and-tear on your ball joints, which can cause your car to wander while driving down a straight road.

A transmission system in which the gears are operated by the driver by means of a stick shift and clutch pedal. Manual transmissions are generally preferred for high-performance driving, or as a lower-cost alternative to more expensive automatic transmissions. They are also simpler, and less costly to repair as well. Transmission Components The modern automatic transmission consists of many components and systems that are designed to work together in a symphony of clever mechanical, hydraulic and electrical technology that has evolved over the years into what many mechanically inclined individuals consider to be an art form.
At CarTech we try to use simple, generic explanations where possible to describe these systems but, due to the complexity of some of these components, you may have to use some mental gymnastics to visualize their operation. The main components that make up an automatic transmission include:
