I asked to expedite oil change service in order to accommodate another appointment within the hour. They did everything to get me in and out quickly. Thoroughly inspected vehicle and found several additional recommended services from which we prioritized service and follow-up. I did not feel pressured and felt there was a strong customer care ethic in place. Clean and comfortable waiting room. I even think my car came back to me cleaner than when I left it. Very satisfied with service and would return and recommend to others.

AC Inspections & Repairs
What could be more important for Austin area drivers than keeping the AC blowing cool in your vehicle? When stepping into a hot car on a 105 degree day all you want is ice cold air and you want it now. Our ASE-Certified technicians are ready to handle all of your automotive AC needs. Our technicians are trained to pinpoint the source of any problem and work to quickly repair it.
Cabin/Air Conditioning Filter Replacement
Your air conditioning filter can affect your system’s performance. A clogged cabin air filter causes your blower motor to overwork, overheat, and suffer from premature failure. Not to mention the fact that impeded airflow requires you to turn your AC up higher, having yet another negative impact on your fuel economy. Lamb’s Automotive can replace your air cabin filter and help restore your AC system to its normal function.
AC System Basics
The air conditioning system in the modern automobile is tremendously complex. There are a number of parts, which comprise your system, such as the compressor, receiver/drier (accumulator), orifice tube or expansion valve (filter) and more. Watch this video to learn how your air conditioning functions.
Lamb’s Automotive is the first choice for auto AC repair in Austin and the surrounding area. We’ll make sure your car is as cool inside as it can get based on your particular vehicle with our auto ac repair services. Come in today or make an appointment at a Lamb’s Automotive location near you today.
Frequently Asked Questions
Not necessarily. In many cases, warm air is caused by a lack of refrigerant in the system. The refrigerant may leak if your vehicle isn’t run very often or when there is a problem in the system with a hose or service port. A basic evacuation and car AC recharge may be all that’s necessary to get your system back to operating as it should. To have our technicians perform a thorough AC inspection, stop by any Lamb’s Tire & Automotive location and check out our coupons page for savings on our services.
The air conditioning systems in today’s cars are more complex than they once were, so it’s difficult to diagnose the specific problem when your AC isn’t running right. If your AC isn’t blowing cold air or if it’s making odd noises, book an appointment for auto AC repair at Lamb’s Tire & Automotive. We’ll check your compressor and let you know if repair or replacement is best for your vehicle and your budget.
An air conditioner that’s running properly shouldn’t make any noises other than the sound that the blower normally makes. If you’ve started hearing odd sounds such as rattles or clicks, you probably have something caught in the system, such as leaves or twigs. You may even have rodents setting up housekeeping in the system if your car or truck has sat idle for some time. Strange noises may also point to a problem with the condenser, which may need to be replaced. Book an appointment at the Lamb’s Tire & Automotive location that’s most convenient for you to have your air conditioning system inspected by our certified technicians.
The recharge kits you can buy from auto supply stores are safe, but we don’t recommend their use. Every car and truck has some important differences in their AC systems. One of these differences is the system’s capacity for refrigerant. Since a complete evacuation of the refrigerant is the only way to accurately determine how much refrigerant is in it, you risk overcharging or undercharging the system, both of which can cause some harm. In addition, some off-the-shelf AC recharge kits also contain substances that may clog the hoses, pump, compressor, or other components in the system.
You can avoid having to have your compressor replaced or incurring expensive repair costs by bringing your vehicle to Lamb’s Tire & Automotive. Our factory-trained technicians will confirm that a low refrigerant level is the issue if your AC isn’t blowing cold air and perform a complete inspection.
If you’ve noticed moisture inside the passenger compartment and you’ve been using your car’s AC, it could be the culprit. Air conditioners in vehicles function as dehumidifiers, removing moisture from the air and then draining it away outside of the vehicle. The part of the system that drains water away could be blocked, making water back up inside your car.
Although having damp floorboards is inconvenient, excess moisture in your car and in the AC system can cause the growth of mold and mildew. If you or your passengers have any type of allergies or respiratory issues, fungus circulating through the AC can exacerbate their symptoms. You may notice a musty odor if mold or mildew is present—if you do, bring your vehicle to Lamb’s Tire & Automotive. We will inspect your AC to find the cause of any dampness or odors.
Every Lamb’s Tire & Automotive location has all of the auto air conditioning services you need to keep your AC blowing cold. If the problem isn’t immediately apparent, our comprehensive inspection will allow our technicians to identify the problem and recommend the solution. Our inspections include checking the blower, hoses, compressor, interior air vent temperature, and much more. We can also replace your car air filters, check for visible leaks in system components, and check your Freon pressure. If you have questions about any of our services, contact the Lamb’s Tire & Automotive location near you.
The Freon for cars in use today is safer than the old R-12 formula used years ago, but it’s still a highly toxic substance. According to Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) guidance, Freon should never be allowed to escape into the atmosphere, and it should be carefully handled and disposed of. For your safety, it’s best to have a professional mechanic check your AC system, ensure that you need Freon, and take care of evacuating the system. Book an appointment at Lamb’s Tire & Automotive to have your system inspected.
Check your vehicle’s owner’s manual for the manufacturer’s recommendation, or schedule an appointment at your nearest Lamb’s Tire & Automotive location for an air conditioning system inspection by our trained technicians. We can determine if your AC filter is clogged and needs to be replaced.
In general, we don’t recommend that our customers attempt any DIY repairs. Here’s why:
- Your vehicle’s warranty coverage may be voided if you make your own repairs. That doesn’t mean you have to take your car or truck to the dealership, though—you have the option to have qualified professionals at automotive repair centers take care of repairs.
- If you have a late-model car or truck, the air conditioning system is likely to have several types of electronic components that few DIYers have the knowledge or specialized tools needed to perform repairs.
- You may expose yourself to refrigerants, which are dangerous to handle and must be disposed of properly.
- Some types of repairs require specialized equipment. Repairing your own AC system with the wrong tool (or using the right tool improperly) can damage the system.
