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 Simmons 4x4 Automotive Repair Center at 3743 S Country Club Rd 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 Simmons 4x4 Automotive Repair Center in Tucson when it's time to recharge your AC freon.
Simmons 4x4 Automotive Repair Center's Fast 3 Step Process:
"Does Simmons 4x4 Automotive Repair Center 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 Simmons 4x4 Automotive Repair Center today and talk with our mechanics about getting the job done right. Visit us today at 3743 S Country Club Rd.
"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 Simmons 4x4 Automotive Repair Center 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 520-884-0217 and ask any of our auto repair specialists about recharging your car's AC. Stop by our store at 3743 S Country Club Rd and we will show you the best AC recharging options for your car.

What People Say About Us
I have been using Simmons for a few years now and have always been treated great and had quality auto work. Drive line shop is the best!!!Thanks Simmons
Caring, honest work, fair prices and excellent customer service. This is the only shop I will take my van to!
I was very happy with my service. I have a jeep and I felt they cared for it as well as I would myself.
They consistently provided feedback and followed up on the progress via phone and email.
Well let me just say that this might not be the cheapest place to fix your 4X4 but after this I will say that they are very thorough and professional. They give you a list of things to fix and advise you as to what is critical and what is not. They work with you and are very professional about it. I will have to say that they did miss one thing that I took it in for originally but probably due to them fixing something that they assumed would fix the problem. I do think that it should have been caught before I picked up the truck and drove home necessitating another trip to their shop. BUT, and a big BUT, it was corrected the second time at no charge which I didn't even have to argue for...This is what I call customer service. Mike was a consummate professional in all my dealings with him...Good Job guys, the truck drives beautiful and hopefully for another 3-4 years!!!
Wade was great. They did a complete work up on my partners car. This was the second work up in 2 weeks. I wanted her to take it to Jerry and have a "Second Opinion" on the state of the car. The mechanics found things that need maintenance and others that need repair. Some of them were not even found by first place she took the car to be examined. Like Jerry says on his radio show you get what you pay for and I always tell everyone that Simmons is Worth the cost.
Took our Jeep in for a "death wobble". Assessments and estimates were clear, concise. Excellent communication throughout by email and phone. I would highly recommend!!
