Recharge The AC Freon In Your Car Or Truck

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 Trans International Transmissions at 1108 North Loop 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 Trans International Transmissions in Houston when it's time to recharge your AC freon.

Trans International Transmissions'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.
"Does Trans International Transmissions Have R12 Freon For My Classic Car?"

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 Trans International Transmissions today and talk with our mechanics about getting the job done right. Visit us today at 1108 North Loop.

"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 Trans International Transmissions 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 Houston 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 713-861-3131 and ask any of our auto repair specialists about recharging your car's AC. Stop by our store at 1108 North Loop and we will show you the best AC recharging options for your car.

    By far the most genuine and best in the business. Jorge is probably the best mechanic in the Houston area. I had him fix a timing chain gear for me about a year ago. First and foremost he's a trans specialist and was very happy to get my car running for me. I would recommend him HIGHLY over anyone else. He's a very caring and knowledgeable man, and I won't let anyone else touch my car. Thanks Jorge sincerely!

    I took my Lexus to George based on a recommendation from a friend. From the moment I met George, I could tell he is an honest person. He rebuilt my engine, gave me a fair price and always kept me informed of the status of my repair. I would highly recommend him.

    I took my car to Trans International Transmission for a transmission problem last December. I always call them if I have a problem in my car, and they always tell me what is the best to do and if they can do it. They repaired a transmission leak in 3 hours without an appointment!

    I send all my transmission work to Jorge. He's one of the few mechanics I trust and can rely on. Super knowledgeable and gives honest recommendations.

    Recently took my truck (2002 F150) to a dealer for a new transmission. Called Jorge at Trans International instead, and was able to have the work done for a fraction of the cost. I called a few transmission shops in the area and Jorge offered the best deal, not to mention was very helpful. They do a complete rebuild including the torque converter rather than replacing only what needs to be done. Jorge called me to let me know when their tow driver got the vehicle, when it was in the shop, and when it was going to be ready. Only took two days. Give them a call.
