Auto A/C & Heating Services

If the breeze from those open windows just isn't cutting it, come by our shop in Pontiac, MI 48340 to get an expert opinion on what we can do to fix your auto A/C or heating problems. We offer affordable prices and guaranteed workmanship. Contact us at 248-858-4139, so we can help you drive in comfort.

Why maintaining your AC System is very important:
Heating and A/C systems may break eventually with usage, hose pipes may clog and drip if not serviced, causing reduced efficiency heating and cooling capabilities. Regular maintenance will keep your AC system operating at peak performance!

Indications your A/C system may be having issues:

  • If your air conditioning blows only slightly cooler air compared to the exterior air
  • Air that blows in smells damp, musty, or like mildew and mold
  • Your cabin does not warm up in cold weather, or is just a little warmer than outside
  • The defroster takes longer than typical to operate, or does not operate
  • Your heater or A/C only functions when driving, not when idling, or quits blowing when the car is stationary
  • Your heating system blows cold air, or the air conditioning blows warm air
  • Low airflow even at the highest fan setting.

A comprehensive evaluation of heating and A/C system includes:

  • Examining the internal controls and blower
  • Checking radiator coolant operating temperature, hoses, pressure radiator cap and thermostat
  • Inspecting the compressor belt
  • Inspecting system and seals for leaks or various other damages.
  • A cooling system pressure test
  • Verifying the A/C pressure meets manufacturer specifications
  • Measuring the interior vent air temperature

Air Conditioning
Have you been sweltering in your vehicle lately? Perhaps your car's air conditioner isn't functioning properly. At Great Lakes Auto Repair we have qualified service professionals who can fix your air conditioner. To have an air conditioning system serviced, repaired, or replaced by experts consider visiting Great Lakes Auto Repair. You can also call us at 248-858-4139 with any questions relating to your vehicle's air conditioner.

Belts
A fan belt, also known as a drive belt, is a belt connecting your car's engine to the front mounted accessories. The fan belt rotates the water pump and engine fan, which maintains a cool environment for the engine and its components. Sooner or later, your vehicle's fan belts will dry out and crack. When you are ready for a replacement you can count on Great Lakes Auto Repair for all your vehicle's repair needs.

You not only have to get the belts replaced with quality ones but you should have the work done by experts. To have the belts replaced by auto cooling and heating experts - and get your car driving right - visit Great Lakes Auto Repair today. The mechanics at Great Lakes Auto Repair will thoroughly inspect your car's belts; replace all worn belts; and adjust the installed belts.

Radiators
Radiators are heat exchangers for cooling your car's internal combustion engine. A radiator cools the engine by circulating an engine coolant through the engine block - it then loses the heat to the atmosphere through radiation. A radiator has a set of tubes through which the engine coolant flows. Fins surround these tubes. When the radiator fails, the excess heat produced by the engine could damage the engine components. To prevent this from happening, have your radiator serviced regularly. To have your radiator needs handled by experts, visit Great Lakes Auto Repair today.

Had my car fixed and fixed correctly the first time, competitively priced with outstanding customer service by knowledgeable technicians. Was my first time going there, but now it will be the only place I take my car.


-Doyle H.

If you want an honest and reasonable place, it's here! They are amazing.


-Dina L.

This is a good shop with qualified mechanics and fair prices. As a customer since they first opened, and a former employee, I can guarantee you on any given day this place is far too busy to fix anything on your car that isn't necessary. Their mechanics are certified and very knowledgeable. They often take on jobs no one else wants or can handle. The entire staff is very friendly and willing to go the extra mile. Whether it be giving customers a ride to and from, shopping around for parts, dealing with tight deadlines, staying late, or anything in between, Great Lakes will do what it takes to make your experience as pleasant as possible. They are also very good at prioritizing what needs fixed now and what can wait when on a budget. All of their work is warrantied and they stand behind anything they do. When it comes to prices they are exceptionally competitive. If you find someone to do it cheaper than these guys it's probably not going to come with a receipt, and cash will be the only form of payment excepted. I highly recommend this shop for any of your repair needs.

-Tracie J.

I’ve been brining my 70’s classic and late model vehicles to Great Lakes Auto Repair for several years now. Whether it’s a minor brake repair or something more major and complex, it’s not just a job, rather they truly care about the quality of work and attention to detail. Quotes are accurate, follow-up and communication are very timely. I truly appreciate the time spent taking me through repairs and explaining, in great detail, why and how certain repairs were done. Without a doubt, they have Integrity and trust, at a fair cost.


-Erik W.

I had a great experience with Great Lakes Auto Repair. They are quick but thorough! They are upfront about prices and let you know what needs to be fixed in order of priority. Which I really appreciated. Very nice and professional whenever we spoke, and kept me updated on everything before they performed the work.


-Danielle

These are my go-to people. I will go way out of my way to get here (like 200 miles towed). They are completely honest about everything and have never overcharged anything. They are making a living not a killing. This place is absolutely the best I have ever experienced. They have gone WAY out of their way to ensure that I am taken care of. I can't tell you how comforting it is to have an honest mechanic shop that does great work. I cannot recommend this place enough.


-Thom C.

The best part is the times were tight it was days before Christmas they made a Huge discount for the labor to give me a break-in the price.they told me exactly what I would need to get the truck back on the road and they also told me were I could save a few bucks they were all around great guys and easy to work with I would recommend them to anyone for your auto needs
