Many don't know it but vehicle air conditioners can experience something called "Black Death" - no not the same as the deadly plague that occurred during the 14th century - but it can be just as detrimental to your car's overall health. Black Death starts out inside the compressor after refrigerant breaks down. Since refrigerant acts as a working fluid which provides lubrication to protect the engine, a refrigerant breakdown will result in ugly wear, starting in the compressor. From there, sharp and grimy metal particles created during compressor breakdown can then travel through the rest of your A/C system, wreaking havoc on the entire system. Before you know it all airflow will be long gone.
Whether you're on a family road trip or your daily commute, your car's AC should be able to keep you cool and comfortable all through the hot, humind Texas Summer. Here are four signs your vehicle's air conditioner needs to be serviced:
Air isn't as cold as it used to be
Fould smell like mildew coming from the AC vents
Unusual banging or rattling sounds
Puddles or stains from water on your car's floorboard under the dash
