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 Fausto's Power Garage at 5982 South Lee Highway 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 Fausto's Power Garage in McDonald when it's time to recharge your AC freon.
Fausto's Power Garage's Fast 3 Step Process:
"Does Fausto's Power Garage Have R12 Freon For My Classic Car?"
- 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 Fausto's Power Garage today and talk with our mechanics about getting the job done right. Visit us today at 5982 South Lee Highway.
"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 Fausto's Power Garage 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 McDonald 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 423-396-3239 and ask any of our auto repair specialists about recharging your car's AC. Stop by our store at 5982 South Lee Highway and we will show you the best AC recharging options for your car.

What People Say About Us
Last summer an auto repair shop on Little Debbie Pky as well as another auto repair shop close to Cleveland said their computer analysis revealed a need of AC compressor on my 2015 vehicle at tunes of a few K's. I was referred to Fausto's by a fellow at Auto Zone to get Fausto's analysis. Computer analysis revealed that the compressor was working fine but unit was overcharged with freon. Freon was put at proper level and oil put on compressor and issues were fixed! AC was cooling properly again. You could have told me I needed a new compressor and I would have believed you! Thank you Brianna and Fausto's and team for your concern, care, honesty and excellent service. I will be returning for ALL my car's needs.
I have been coming to Fausto's Power Garage for years, and have always found the service to be excellent. Saturn told me that my old Saturn would always burn a lot of oil. Fausto showed me what part needed to be replaced and fixed it. When my air-conditioning went out at 4:00 on a Friday, Fausto stayed late to get it fixed before the weekend. I can't say enough about the quality of their service.
This is a fantastic family owned Automotive Shop. Brianna, Fausto, Cory and the other fine technicians will treat you with the upmost care and service and they strive to accommodate those with busy schedules. Great service from start to finish with quality workmanship and fast and efficient delivery times. For the quality and valued minded customer, you won't find a better Automotive shop. They will have my continued business from now on.
Very honest and reasonable.
It is never easy finding a mechanic when you have an old air cooled volkswagen. Not only was Fausto's willing to do the work, but Fausto took extra time to track down parts that would save me some money. It's good to know that when I need a repair I will not have to keep trying different mechanics; I just need to call Fausto!
I was on my way home from work one day when I noticed my rear tire was very low. I called Briana to see if they could patch it up for me (it was 10 minutes to close). They didn't shy away from inviting me over?they were happy to help!
