  • Most folks tend to review only when they have a bad experience, but it was the positive experiences that led me to try out this repair shop. These guys seem honest and they did good work for a fair price. I am so glad I found them and hope to give them all my future business. Support this local shop if you can.
    -Tim Coots
  • I have tried many different mechanics in Dripping Springs Texas and I found Austin Auto Repair to be the most honest and reliable mechanic. They are very accommodating and go the extra mile to help out their customers. We have been customers for 3+ years now and plan to continue using them.
    -Steven Tedjamulia
  • A great repair shop with great prices. They beat the quotes of the dealer and another local repair shop by 30% or more on shocks and brakes. Friendly and helpful staff.
    -Andrew Jones
  • These guys have been awesome. Any time I've talked to someone on the phone, they have been professional and clear. Their concern is for a well running car and happy customers. Their pledge to accurately & honestly diagnosis & repair your vehicle has been up held with my 2 cars that I have brought in. Once I had assumed my car was in very bad condition and informed James about the problem, they checked the parts I thought to be the problem, and came back with a much lower cost because the part in question was fine, and another part much easier to fix but associated with the original part was the problem.
    -Kris Foster
  • This is the only place I take my car for whatever it needs! I feel blessed to find a car repair place that that is honest and I can trust. The owner and employees are wonderful, friendly, very helpful; and my experience has been that they have always done a great job on any work that I've needed done, I can get my car in quickly, I know I'm going to get a fair price and that only the work that is needed will be done. I highly recommend their service to anyone!
    -Gloria Drews-Vallecillo
  • I will never take my car anywhere else! Gary is always respectful and straightforward about what work needs to be done and what we should watch, but can wait on a bit. We only have the one car, so getting it worked on can put us in a bind at times, but he's great about working us in to a busy schedule with minimal disruption of our lives. Jarrett is an excellent and efficient mechanic and we always feel welcome and comfortable - even when I have a carload of kids with me. Pricing is fair and questions are always answered patiently and expertly.
    -Michele Thorley
  • We love you Gary! And we appreciate the great, friendly, timely, and excellent service for these past years--we continue to be your devoted customers.
    -Mary Smith & Kim Moritomo
  • Gary is honest and all for your best interest. I will always take my vehicles here!

Auto A/C & Heating Services

If the breeze from those open windows just isn't cutting it, come by our shop in Austin, TX 78736 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 512-288-4932, 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 Austin 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 Austin Auto Repair. You can also call us at 512-288-4932 with any questions relating to your vehicle's air conditioner.

Coolant System Flush
A car's air conditioning system contains a coolant which transfers excess heat from one part of the engine and finally loses it through the radiator fins. With time, the a/c coolant becomes old and dirty. The old coolant will negatively impact the system's performance. To make sure the system is working effectively, consider having a regular coolant system flush. A coolant flush is basic maintenance for your car's cooling system. Call 512-288-4932 or visit Austin Auto Repair in Austin, TX 78736 for all your coolant system flush and fill needs. Ensure maximum performance from your vehicle's heating and cooling systems today.

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 Austin 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 Austin Auto Repair today. The mechanics at Austin Auto Repair will thoroughly inspect your car's belts; replace all worn belts; and adjust the installed belts.

Hoses
Hoses transfer coolant and antifreeze throughout the engine's cooling system (including the radiator). Sooner or later, your vehicle's hoses will dry out and crack. When you are ready for a replacement you can count on Austin Auto Repair for all your vehicle's repair needs.

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

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 Austin Auto Repair today.

Radiator Flush
A radiator is the part of your vehicle that keeps the engine cool and protects it from excessive heating. To be cool, the radiator needs to remain clean - always. With time, sludge, rust and other solid deposits build up inside your car's radiator. These make the cooling system become clogged and less effective. This in effect hurts your vehicle's performance. A regular radiator flush is enough to keep the system in shape. For this reason, make radiator flushing a part of your routine car maintenance schedule. For all your radiator flush needs, call 512-288-4932 or visit Austin Auto Repair today.
