Five Signs Your Car AC Needs To Be Serviced?
- Your car air conditioning blows only slightly cooler than the outside air.
- Your car's air conditioner blows air that smells like mildew and mold.
- Your A/C only works while driving.
- You have low airflow even at the highest fan setting.
- Water condensing or dripping on your foot while driving.
Don't wait! If your car's A/C is working at reduced efficiency, it's worth a visit to Franklin Auto Service. Taking care of regular maintenance now can help you avoid more expensive AC repair costs down the road. Sometimes fixing a broken air conditioner is as simple and cost effective as adding new coolant.
Most truck and car air conditioning systems break eventually with usage. Hoses that feed the AC unit may crack, clog or drip if not serviced. Let us service your car or truck and keep your cooling system performing at its peak. Call us at 248-626-2080 to learn more about how we can get your air conditioning running again!

Let Franklin Auto Service Repair Your Car's AC Compressor
The cool air in your car is produced primarily by the compressor. The four main functions that your vehicle's compressor carries out include pressurizing the refrigerant to cool cabin air, monitoring and controlling temperature output, sensing temperature changes inside and outside the vehicle, and moving air to your car's AC condenser.

Your vehicle's A/C condenser is usually located in the front of the radiator. When your AC compressor is pressurizing the refrigerant flows to the condenser to reduce the temperature and pressure.

What People Say About Us
This is a small family owned garage and I told the mechanic who I also believe is the owner what I desired to have done on the vehicle and within a few minutes he called me back with a very detailed estimate on costs and even contacted my husband and myself to explain a newer, much more gentler procedure for a transmission flush instead of drain and fill being that we were concerned with the mileage a transmission drain and fill would be less likely to mess up the transmission down the line provided the flush the way it had been done in the past could almost be guaranteed to cause expensive transmission work down the line. Our car runs so much better now. Thank you Franklin Auto Service.
Excellent courteous prompt service.
Friendly service. Brought in an old car for inspection. Darrell took the time to explain what was wrong and what I should fix in order to feel safe driving it. They even managed to save the calipers on the brakes, which saved me some money! Thank you!
Darrel and his team did a great job on my car. Very professional, expert knowledge, top quality, all with the added benefit of small town personal service.
