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 CT Automotive and Cycle. 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 573-818-1455 to learn more about how we can get your air conditioning running again!

Repair Your Car's AC Compressor
Let CT Automotive and Cycle 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.

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.

I've been coming to CT Automotive for about 3 months now. In that time, I've had about 4 repairs done ranging from putting on headlights and side mirror to radiator service. Mike at the front has always been really nice and thorough when explaining what my car needs. They also helped me with a ride to my house while I waited for my car. Overall, the cost of services is a bit on the pricey side if you choose to use their parts, but they will also install customer provided parts, which is a huge plus. Service is always friendly and the work done on my car has always been reliable! CT Automotive is always my first choice for car repairs
