New Auto AC Refrigerant: R-1234yf

New Auto AC Refrigerant: R-1234yf

R-1234yf is a newer refrigerant that is being used in newer model vehicles. This refrigerant began to enter the North American market in 2014 when both Fiat Chrysler and General Motors vehicles started manufacturing their air condition systems for it. Now in 2018, about 50% of new vehicles are being manufactured with air conditions systems that use the R-1234yf. This is because the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has marked R-134a as unacceptable through their 2015 rulemaking on the SNAP program. Therefore, making the use of R-134a illegal. Beginning with the model year 2021 newly manufactured vehicles must be made to use R-1234yf. Eurasian Auto Repair continues to provide state of the art equipment to meet the needs of newer cars and trucks. We recently acquired a brand new auto air condition machine specifically designed for vehicles with R-1234yf. We are now able to service and repair newer model cars that may be facing AC problems in this hot T ... read more

Tips for Driving in Icy Road Conditions

Tips for Driving in Icy Road Conditions

With freezing weather and rain in the forecast, you can expect ice on the roads. The number one recommendation is to stay off the road during icy conditions! However, we know that sometimes driving during these icy conditions is unavoidable. Here are some tips to keep in mind when driving in icy conditions. Getting Your Car Ready: As you are heading to the car you may notice that you have a layer of ice over it. Do not pour water (hot or cold) over the ice to try to melt it quickly. This can damage your car and crack the glass. Instead, use an ice scraper in combination with your defrost settings to remove the ice. Before you get driving you should allow your car at least 5 minutes to warm up. This is important because it allows the different fluids to circulate before you begin driving. Slow Down: The speed of your vehicle can really make a difference when there are icy conditions on the road. If you are driving at high speeds it makes it much har ... read more

Air Filter: Your car’s air filter serves the important job of filtering the outside air before it enters your engine. Without the air filter, things such as dirt, dust, bugs, and other debri can enter and damage the engine. Each car’s manufacturer will specify a certain mileage in which the filter should be changed. However, if you are unsure or can’t even remember the last time your car’s air filter was changed a good rule of thumb is to change it on an annual basis. Cabin Filter: The cabin filter is what filters the outside air as it comes into the car through your AC and heating system.
