A/C System Inspection

A/C system inspection includes checking all the key components such as the refrigerant, compressor, air filter, blower, evaporation, and more. A common issue with the A/C system is low-pressure refrigerant pressure, mostly caused by a leak in the system. At Cochran Volkswagen of South Hills, we can find the leak, repair it and perform an AC recharge service.

Cooling System Inspection

The cooling system becomes especially important during summer as it plays a vital role in preventing the vehicle from overheating. It contains several parts including the radiator, coolant fluid, thermostat, and more. Any faulty component can compromise the entire cooling system. We can check and fix any issue with the cooling system.

Tire Inspection

Tire inspection services include checking the tires for any type of damage, uneven tread wear, and high or low inflated pressure. The increase in temperature can raise the pressure of the tires. If the tires become overinflated, they can suffer from a blowout, which is extremely dangerous on the road.

Headlights, High Beams & Tail Light Inspection

We can perform auto services to fix any issues with the headlights, high beams, or tail light. The most common services include fixing electrical shorts or burned-out bulbs. We also check for any damage to the lights, such as chips and cracks. These can expose the lights to weather elements leaving the electrical circuits exposed to rain or snow.

Engine Performance

We recommend you have regular oil change service for engine performance, including inspection of the engine oil filter and air filter. Summer months can be tough on the engine, so allow our technicians to guide you on any services that can keep the engine performing at its best.
