Edison, NJ -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/05/2019 -- Car AC systems provide essential relief throughout the summer months. Therefore, it's critical to spot any signs that they are about to breakdown and get them repaired. As the most reputable provider of auto repair parts online, FAB Auto Parts have advised on the most common signs of AC breakdowns.
AC systems that emit a sour odor can be a symptom of mold inside the vehicle. Where there is mold, there is likely water. This could be a symptom of a damp, dirty air filter. Drivers are advised to replace the air filter to fix this odor problem. The FAB Auto Parts team also recommends checking the evaporator drain if a sour odor persists after changing the AC filter. If these drains are blocked, mold will thrive off the dark, damp conditions.
If there is a loss of air pressure to a vehicle's AC blower, this could be a sign of open or damaged seal on an AC system. Excess moisture inside an evaporator core can cause a buildup of mold that can block airflow to the cabin. Damaged seals reduce the cold airflow into a car's cabin while letting moisture inside. This can compromise the whole AC system.
If water gets into an AC system inside a car, it can combine with Freon (a car refrigerant). This combination creates a corrosive acid that can eat away at AC system components. The rubber seals will start to fall apart and can cause freon to leak out of the AC system. This reduces the AC's ability to cool the vehicle.
If this situation remains unchecked, the corrosion could eventually cause a total system failure. Therefore, vehicle owners are advised to visit a qualified technician if something seems different about their AC system.
