Recharge The AC Freon In Your Car Or Truck
Gears Transmission and Complete Automotive Repair
Your truck or car's AC system is almost completely airtight, but your freon refrigerant is always slowly leaking out. Eventually, a car will lose enough freon so that its air conditioning system will no longer cool effectively. At Gears Transmission at 10 South Park Ln we are ready to recharge your AC to help you keep your car or truck's cabin temperature cool."Help My AC Only Blows Warm Air!"
New advancements in R134a freon systems means that freon in newer cars doesn't leak out as much as old R12 freon systems. The average new model economy car only leaks about 0.41 ounces of refrigerant per year. Come to Gears Transmission in Ringgold when it's time to recharge your AC freon.Gears Transmission's Fast 3 Step Process:
- Vacuum out all the old refrigerant before refilling it.
- Add new R134a refrigerant.
- Pressurize your car's AC system and test for mico-leaks.
Unfortunately R12 freon is no longer available. If your car or truck was made before 1994 you must convert your entire AC system to the new R134a standard. This involves replacing dozens of seals and several AC auto parts. R134a is a more highly pressurized and much more efficient refrigerant pound for pound than R12. Most classic car AC compressors and condensers cannot withstand the intense pressure required and choose to add about 25% less freon to accommodate older systems. This means your AC may not cool as well as it used to. Converting your R12 system to R134a is a big job so stop by Gears Transmission today and talk with our mechanics about getting the job done right. Visit us today at 10 South Park Ln."Is Used Freon Ok?"
Many auto repair shops resell used AC refrigerant. The old freon is cleaned using a specialized recovery machine that removes contaminants. Used freon provided by Gears Transmission works just as well as new freon after it's cleaned. Accepting used freon is a great way to help minimize the impact freon has on the environment.
Freon gas becomes a liquid when pressurized inside your car's A/C system but returns to its gaseous state as it leaks out. Many drivers in Ringgold are completely unaware that they are losing freon until the day when they turn on the car's AC and find only warm air blows out. Call 706-956-8333 and ask any of our auto repair specialists about recharging your car's AC. Stop by our store at 10 South Park Ln and we will show you the best AC recharging options for your car.

One million stars isn't enough to express my gratitude. Please read this and share it with everyone. Hebrews 13:2 "Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for thereby some have entertained angels unawares." I'm no angel, but Mr. Hicks and everyone at Gears Transmission is ready for that test. I am a Trucker and I broke down, under load, on I-75 right above Gears Transmissions. What I needed to get moving again was a "T" hose connector and coolant. I went, first, to a neighboring Truck repair shop. They didn't have the part and I asked if I could pay someone to give me a ride to the nearest hardware store or auto parts store. The man said it would be awhile and cost $150. Same as a road call, plus 2 hours min. Labor. Something in my gut said to walk. Well, I walked next door to Gears and asked if they would sell me a T fitting. The guys and gals all went out of their way to help me, offering me water, or soda while I waited. They too didn't have a suitable sized "T", but the owner said we can call the parts store and have it brought here. So, with full intent to pay a normal up-charge for his time and work, I asked them to include a pair of plyers and 4 gallons of coolant to the order. When the items arrived, Mr. Hicks, not only, handed me 3 hose clamps for my project, he also asked one of his guys to give me a ride back to my truck. I pulled out my credit card, happily ready to pay just about ANY halfway reasonable amount of $$ for the amazing care and attention I had just received, BUT.... Mr. Hick refused to accept ANY, I mean ZERO, money for all of his. I made my delivery on time, Thanks to these amazing people. If they treat a Stranger in need like this, I can only imagine how they treat their customers. Sometimes, like this, it's perhaps a stranger knocking on the doors of an angel's house. Thank you Mr. Hicks, and thank you, Steve, for the ride back to my truck. I will pay it forward!
