Auto A/C & Heating Services

If the breeze from those open windows just isn't cutting it, come by our shop in Poway, CA 92064 to get an expert opinion on what we can do to fix your auto A/C or heating problems. We offer affordable prices and guaranteed workmanship. Contact us at 858-842-1414, so we can help you drive in comfort.

Why maintaining your AC System is very important:
Heating and A/C systems may break eventually with usage, hose pipes may clog and drip if not serviced, causing reduced efficiency heating and cooling capabilities. Regular maintenance will keep your AC system operating at peak performance!

Indications your A/C system may be having issues:

  • If your air conditioning blows only slightly cooler air compared to the exterior air
  • Air that blows in smells damp, musty, or like mildew and mold
  • Your cabin does not warm up in cold weather, or is just a little warmer than outside
  • The defroster takes longer than typical to operate, or does not operate
  • Your heater or A/C only functions when driving, not when idling, or quits blowing when the car is stationary
  • Your heating system blows cold air, or the air conditioning blows warm air
  • Low airflow even at the highest fan setting.

A comprehensive evaluation of heating and A/C system includes:

  • Examining the internal controls and blower
  • Checking radiator coolant operating temperature, hoses, pressure radiator cap and thermostat
  • Inspecting the compressor belt
  • Inspecting system and seals for leaks or various other damages.
  • A cooling system pressure test
  • Verifying the A/C pressure meets manufacturer specifications
  • Measuring the interior vent air temperature

Our repair and maintenance services include:

Air Conditioning
Have you been sweltering in your vehicle lately? Perhaps your car's air conditioner isn't functioning properly. At Poway's Accurate Automotive we have qualified service professionals who can fix your air conditioner. To have an air conditioning system serviced, repaired, or replaced by experts consider visiting Poway's Accurate Automotive. You can also call us at 858-842-1414 with any questions relating to your vehicle's air conditioner.

Coolant System Flush
A car's air conditioning system contains a coolant which transfers excess heat from one part of the engine and finally loses it through the radiator fins. With time, the a/c coolant becomes old and dirty. The old coolant will negatively impact the system's performance. To make sure the system is working effectively, consider having a regular coolant system flush. A coolant flush is basic maintenance for your car's cooling system. Call 858-842-1414 or visit Poway's Accurate Automotive in Poway, CA 92064 for all your coolant system flush and fill needs. Ensure maximum performance from your vehicle's heating and cooling systems today.

Belts
A fan belt, also known as a drive belt, is a belt connecting your car's engine to the front mounted accessories. The fan belt rotates the water pump and engine fan, which maintains a cool environment for the engine and its components. Sooner or later, your vehicle's fan belts will dry out and crack. When you are ready for a replacement you can count on Poway's Accurate Automotive for all your vehicle's repair needs.

You not only have to get the belts replaced with quality ones but you should have the work done by experts. To have the belts replaced by auto cooling and heating experts - and get your car driving right - visit Poway's Accurate Automotive today. The mechanics at Poway's Accurate Automotive will thoroughly inspect your car's belts; replace all worn belts; and adjust the installed belts.

Hoses
Hoses transfer coolant and antifreeze throughout the engine's cooling system (including the radiator). Sooner or later, your vehicle's hoses will dry out and crack. When you are ready for a replacement you can count on Poway's Accurate Automotive for all your vehicle's repair needs.

You not only have to get the hoses replaced with quality ones but you should have the work done by experts. To have the hoses replaced by auto cooling and heating experts - and get your car driving right - visit Poway's Accurate Automotive today. The mechanics at Poway's Accurate Automotive will thoroughly inspect your car's hoses; replace all worn hoses; and adjust the installed hoses.

Radiators
Radiators are heat exchangers for cooling your car's internal combustion engine. A radiator cools the engine by circulating an engine coolant through the engine block - it then loses the heat to the atmosphere through radiation. A radiator has a set of tubes through which the engine coolant flows. Fins surround these tubes. When the radiator fails, the excess heat produced by the engine could damage the engine components. To prevent this from happening, have your radiator serviced regularly. To have your radiator needs handled by experts, visit Poway's Accurate Automotive today.

Radiator Flush
A radiator is the part of your vehicle that keeps the engine cool and protects it from excessive heating. To be cool, the radiator needs to remain clean - always. With time, sludge, rust and other solid deposits build up inside your car's radiator. These make the cooling system become clogged and less effective. This in effect hurts your vehicle's performance. A regular radiator flush is enough to keep the system in shape. For this reason, make radiator flushing a part of your routine car maintenance schedule. For all your radiator flush needs, call 858-842-1414 or visit Poway's Accurate Automotive today.

The service is always over the top! I needed an oil change and they took care of my Ford Escape right away. I'm always greeted with friendly faces and always enjoy interacting with the staff. Will definitely recommend Poway's Accurate Automotive to my friends!


-Anonymous

Great, quick, friendly, quality, reasonably-priced service! These guys were able to fit my car in last minute and were very upfront about the state of my car without being pushy, which is exactly what I want in a repair place. I would feel good about bringing my car to them again.


-BRITTANY V

People were all friendly & helpful! Just like always!


-Dennis H

I had my Tacoma aligned at this shop this past week, I called them up and asked them a couple questions about pricing, a coupon, and making an appointment, Jimmy was exceptionally helpful, professional and made sure I was well taken care of. Once I got there, they took my truck right away and had it done in about 45 minutes. They went above and beyond to make sure things were good and that I was satisfied after telling them about a miscommunication with another store. The professionalism and customer service this time around was unsurpassed, and much appreciated!


-Mike M. - San Diego, CA

I heard so many negative comments about Perry Ford that I looked online and called Poway Accurate Automotive. Jimmy Norman answered the phone with a friendly " how can I help you"... I didn't know if he was a manager or other employee, but he treated me great. I have a Ford F350 diesel, I was worried because my power steering wasn't responding and my breaks were making a whining sound, I also had two warning lights showing. Jimmy told me bring it in, it won't cost you anything for us to check. True to his word, they checked and found easy fixes, did a complete brake check and found I had about 40 % brake pad left which left me a few months to decide my financial options... A package deal better than any I've found so far. Yes, Poway Accurate Automotive will be getting my business...my job gives me a lot of experience investigating truth...Jimmy Norman and this business are the real truth...


-Derek D. - Poway, CA

I highly recommend this shop, it's a shop that you can truly tell cares about each person who walks through the doors. My car was overheating while I was on my way to buy a new car. I pulled over to let my car cool down at the u haul next door. The u haul employee asked what was wrong. He told me to ask the guys next door for help. Jimmy and Derk helped me right away no questions. They sent me on my way with in 20 minutes and I was able to get my new car. He never tried to sell me anything I didn't need or fool me in anyway. Good mechanics are hard to find, I've already been back to the poway accurate auto and will continue to! You can trust these guys!


-Dani R. - San Diego, CA

I had been to the sister shop of this one, precision automotive, and had a good experience. when they were too busy one day, they told me to go here instead. i was just in for an oil change but they found some steering parts that were worn out and an oil leak. again, they actually brought me into the shop to show me what was wrong on my car and were very fair with pricing. it was done when quoted and they never pressured me into getting the work done, but told me what would happen if i let it go. great service and work performed by some good guys. many thanks to the manager brian and the team of mechanics.


-John M. - Encinitas, CA

These guys are great, awesome people and fair price's. You can trust them


-Kevin F. - Escondido, CA

I had an appointment with another smog check center but turned too early off Pomerado road. They were able to take my car almost immediately and had it done in less than half an hour. They also turned out to be cheaper the the original place I was headed! Very friendly, courteous and helpful.


-Sheryl D. - San Diego, CA
