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 Mike's Tire & Auto Center at 56841 Venture Lane 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 Mike's Tire & Auto Center in Sunriver when it's time to recharge your AC freon.
Mike's Tire & Auto Center's Fast 3 Step Process:
"Does Mike's Tire & Auto 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 Mike's Tire & Auto Center today and talk with our mechanics about getting the job done right. Visit us today at 56841 Venture Lane.
"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 Mike's Tire & Auto 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 Sunriver 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 541-593-2554 and ask any of our auto repair specialists about recharging your car's AC. Stop by our store at 56841 Venture Lane and we will show you the best AC recharging options for your car.

What People Say About Us
Left turn signal started fast flashing. I was sure the bulb was out. Spent quite a bit of time going to parts store, getting 2 new bulbs and installed. Still fast flashing!! Called Ty at Mike's Tire & Auto. He slotted me in and within a few hours, he called and advised the circuit board was old and corroded. He scoured the area for replacement board. He found a new one and shortly later, car was fixed! Great service, honest folks, competent. Thanks, Ty!!!
Our 2002 Nissan Frontier suffered a cracked radiator just as we arrived in Sunriver on a Wednesday evening. Got towed to Mike's in the morning but they were only going to be open until noon so that Ty could take his entire staff fishing. Just as I was about to go to plan B, Todd found the part in Bend, had it express shipped to the shop, contacted another customer and found they didn't mind waiting a few more days for a tune up and wedged us into their schedule. We were on the road two hours later. Hats off to the entire organization. Outstanding service!
Mike's saved the day. After a week of low tire pressure readings on a front tire that never panned out, we went to Mike's before a day of driving for one last check. Despite being fully booked for several days they squeezed us in. They found a nail in a rear tire which our inspections by 2 other dealers in the past week didn't catch. Tire fixed in a timely manner, we now know our sensors need to be reset, and we are back on the road.
We broke down in our van traveling through Bend, and these guys helped us get back on the road within a few hours, and for a very reasonable price. We were very impressed with their service and friendliness! Would highly recommend.
Ordered up a new set of tires and when I got my truck back found out they had fixed my air conditioner too! They go the extra mile for their customers. They do great work. Would highly recommend them.
These guys are amazing... Fast, courteous and fair! I was in town on vacation when my check engine light went on. As it turned out, I needed a catalytic converter. They were able to overnight the part and have installed first thing the following morning... And all for a very fair price. Thanks to Todd for making everything so easy! I would recommend these guys anytime.
