As it has been bitter cold here in Wisconsin the last thing we want is no heat. There is a few reasons that can cause the vehicles heat to blow cold. Some repairs are a little easier then others. The vehicles coolant level being low can cause the vehicle blow cold air. The coolant in the engine does not just work to keep the engine from overheating. It is also the source of heat supporting the heating system. Another issue could be the thermostat not working correctly. When the thermostat can not signal the engine being warm, the coolant won't be passed over to provide heat to the heater core and the air will blow cold. Heater cores are cooling system that look like little radiators. They are made up of little metal tubing that carries the hot coolant in and out. It is not the best time to have cold air blowing on us. If you feel your heat is not working to your standards call us today. We will be happy to assist you with getting your heat running in tip top shape.&nb ... read more
As we had a week of warm weather here in Wisconsin, most of us tried our air conditioning in our vehicles. If you noticed your car is blowing warm air instead of nice cool air; there could be a couple issues. One of the most common causes for the air conditioning system to blow warm air is a lack of refrigerant in the system. Other issues may be within the vehicles condenser, compressor, broken cooling fans, or even an issue with the electrical system. We need that air cool for the warm summer days to come. Call us today to schedule a time to inspect your air conditioning system.

If your car's air conditioning is on the fritz, it can be hard to decide which shop to take it into. A simple Google search will show you more auto repair shops than you can shake a stick at. How do you really know who you can trust? A good air conditioning repair can be hard to find, that's because most air conditioning repair is hard to diagnose. Unlike other parts of your vehicle there are no “check air conditioning” light or some computer module that can tell you exactly how it is performing. So that leaves two options, the guess and check method or using sophisticated and expensive machines, such as an automated recovery and refill unit with a leak detection system. The good news is Bob's Main Street Auto uses such machines. The alternative is what many other shops do, and that is to make the best guess as to where the problem might be, fix or replace the component and see if they got it right. If they guessed right the first time, your bill might be low. If it took a ... read more
