Now that we have the price per pound the question is how much refrigerant does your car take? Well, there is no easy answer for that. Most cars take between two to three pounds of refrigerant but there are some applications that take upwards of nine pounds. It is best to check your specific car to see exactly how much R134A or R1234YF you need.
At Cartek Collision, all AC repair and AC services are handled by ASE-certified technicians. They have also completed training through EPA-approved AC programs. Your car is in good hands with these expert auto technicians, and they will examine your car's A/C system to see if there is a leak – and if there is, they'll stop it in their tracks before it can affect anything else.
Automotive A/C systems are closed systems that are subject to harsh weather and damaging road conditions. Your A/C has plenty of places for refrigerant leaks to occur in metal components like the condenser, evaporator, accumulator or receiver / drier, as well as in the rubber components; hoses, O-rings, gaskets. The refrigerant, R134A and R1234YF in your vehicle’s system only gets lower because the system has developed a small leak which, over time, causes you to feel warmer air blowing from the vents. In most cases, this can be cured by adding a refrigerant with a proven stop leak additive and O-ring conditioner to prevent refrigerant from leaking out further. Our A/C products fit all makes and models both domestic and import so all your needs are covered.
