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 Master Mechanix at 625 N Main St 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 Master Mechanix in Pocatello when it's time to recharge your AC freon.
Master Mechanix's Fast 3 Step Process:
"Does Master Mechanix 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 Master Mechanix today and talk with our mechanics about getting the job done right. Visit us today at 625 N Main St.
"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 Master Mechanix 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 Pocatello 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 208-478-8878 and ask any of our auto repair specialists about recharging your car's AC. Stop by our store at 625 N Main St and we will show you the best AC recharging options for your car.

What People Say About Us
I looked at the reviews online and decided to give Master Mechanix a try and was not disappointed. They fixed my truck in like a quarter of the time I was expecting and at a incredibly reasonable price. Ever since I have been driving I have never had good experiences with mechanics, but this is the exception. They were very nice and did not try and sell me a bunch of stuff I did not need. Next time any of my vehicles has a problem I know where I will be going.
I had my vehicle towed here for repairs after a breakdown on the freeway a few weeks ago and, although they were a little backed up due to bad weather, they figured the problem out quickly and let me know exactly what to expect in cost. The part that was broken was still under warranty by the manufacturer, so Master Mechanix took care of the work and warranty reimbursement with me only having to pay for the initial diagnosis! Very happy with how everything went and would recommend these guys to anyone. Thanks!
Best general mechanic I've ever been to. I've always gone to the dealership where I've got my car because they are they only ones I trust even though they are very expensive. I came here because the dealership said they didn't have the parts to do the job and recommended Master Mechanix. Very fast and cheap. very happy with the service and will go back in the future.
Ray is an excellent technician! High quality work and very honest! I have been going to Master Mechanix for years.
I have brought several of my vehicles in to Master Mechanix for troubleshooting and repair over the last 15 years I have lived in the Pocatello area. Their pricing is very reasonable, the repairs are quick and I have never been disappointed or unsatisfied with the service. Their work is always top notch! Ray always takes the time to explain options, pricing and repair time and doesn't ever attempt to "pile on" a bunch of other work. I continuously recommend Master Mechanix to family and friends.
They provided great service and great education about how to properly care for my car. Thanks guys!!
