Air Conditioning Service

Your vehicles air conditioning functions similarly to a refrigerator as it is designed to move heat from the inside of your car to the outside of it. Your vehicles a/c unit has a number of parts working within it:

  • Refrigerant – this carries the heat out
  • Compressor – circulates and compresses the refrigerant within your cooling system
  • Condenser – changes refrigerant from gas to liquid to expel heat
  • Expansion valve – drops the pressure of your refrigerant liquid, checks its flow and reduces it
  • Receiver or Dryer – filters refrigerant and oil, removing containment from them

If there is a problem with any one of these parts, your air conditioning unit will not work properly and cause more damage in the long run. Call Stofa's Auto Repair & Collision today for a diagnostic test on what is going on.

Axle Repair and Replacement

The axel of your car bears all weight from your vehicle and connects to the wheels. Being such an important part of the steering system it is important that if any issue arises with your axel to have it repaired or replaced. If you notice any changes or difficulty in steering call Stofa's Auto Repair & Collision as soon as possible to have your vehicle looked at.

Cooling System Service

The cooling system is like an air conditioner for your vehicle, keeping it from overheating. If a problem with your cooling system extends beyond a simple flush or replacement, our automotive team can diagnose the problem. We can perform a pressure test to determine if your radiator's pressure is correct. If the pressure test determines that it is not correct, we will check your cooling system's caps, hoses and connections to determine if any of these components need to be replaced or repaired. If we determine that they do need to be replaced or repaired, we can give you a fair, honest quote on parts and labor.

From simple pressure tests to full radiator replacements, you can trust the team at Stofa's Auto Repair & Collision for excellent cooling system service.
 

Radiator Service

Along with your cooling system, your radiator works to keep your engine cool and prevent breakdowns. An elevated temperature gauge is another sign that your radiator might be malfunctioning.

If you notice any of these signs that your radiator needs to be services or replaced, bring your vehicle to one of our Poughkeepsie, NY locations!
