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 Covenant Automotive Repair & Service at 4950 E Speedway Blvd 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 Covenant Automotive Repair & Service in Tucson when it's time to recharge your AC freon.

Covenant Automotive Repair & Service'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 Covenant Automotive Repair & Service 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 Covenant Automotive Repair & Service today and talk with our mechanics about getting the job done right. Visit us today at 4950 E Speedway Blvd.

"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 Covenant Automotive Repair & Service 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 Tucson 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 520-351-2061 and ask any of our auto repair specialists about recharging your car's AC. Stop by our store at 4950 E Speedway Blvd and we will show you the best AC recharging options for your car.

    We found our former auto repair shop closed only to "randomly" pull into Mark Knaak's, Covenant Automotive, LLC today. While it makes sense to get an appointment, they performed mechanical service on two of our cars without hesitation. They were pleasant to work with, asked appropriate questions, provided information and excellent service second to none. Mark is a VERY experienced mechanic and able to work on almost ANY make or model. He specializes in "high end" luxury vehicles. Raise your prices, Mark! You deserve EVERY penny. THANK YOU. We'll be back!

    Mark was honest, kind, worked very efficiently, and made my experience at Covenant Automotive not only enjoyable but heaven sent. I will certainly be taking my Nissan to him and his team as long as they are in business in Tucson. Thank you Mark for your kind heart and excellent service!

    Very impressed! I just dropped in before 3pm on 2/19/2018 with my 2001 F150 Lariat, thinking I might need a fuel filter replacement..."Service Engine Soon" light was lit. When they checked, it was determined the truck was misfiring on #8. I thought I'd have to arrange another day to bring it in for the estimated 3 hour job; Mark assured me that he could get two guys to work on it right away, and if they had to go a little past 5, they'd do whatever was needed to get me going. Well, a whole set of plugs and a new coil, and they finished at 4:50! Amazing work!

    My stepdad brings in our cars to Mark and he does a fabulous job taking care of them! I took my Nissan Maxima in for an oil change and to get my splash guard nailed back into place. They took excellent care of my car and I am very impressed with them! Will be back with my husband's car for an oil change, and will keep coming back! The oil change is a great price for the service that you receive!

    Mark has worked on my Mercedes E350...and now a doge journey (only an oil change and inspection before cross country trip.) The service and above all, honesty you'll get here is just the best. We're moving east and will miss them!
