Air Conditioning Repair Phoenix
Especially here in Phoenix, Auto AC Repairs can be the major difference between loving your vehicle and hating every moment you spend inside it. At AZ Master Mechanics, we understand that in the hottest summer months, you need to be able to rely on your car Air Conditioning, as well as the technicians that conduct the repairs.
The fact is, after an auto AC Repair, the system should be able to maintain its effectiveness for quite some time. Because it is a sealed system, it should require very little maintenance and run perfectly for an extended period of time.
Understanding a little bit about how the car air conditioning system works can help you take proper steps in making sure that your vehicle remains cool and comfortable throughout future summers.
This is the coolant that is recycled through the system. Freon is actually changed from a gas to a liquid and back again. Through this process, heat is actually drawn out of the air in your vehicle and blown outside the car. As long as the system remains sealed, the Freon in your vehicle should remain effective.
This is by far the most expensive portion of your car’s AC system. Its job is to help Freon gas make the transition from liquid to gas; this process actually changes the temperature of Freon and allows the cooling process to run continuously. Compressors will eventually need maintenance but maintaining the compressor is much more cost-effective than replacing the part altogether.
This is where most drivers will experience problems with their vehicle AC. The reason for this is that an automotive air conditioning system must remain a closed system if it is to work. This issue is compounded because Freon in the system also acts as a lubricant to keep everything running smoothly. Without Freon, the compressor can seize up, water can be introduced, and other damage can occur.
Though this is essentially the short version of things to watch out for, the information here can be massively helpful in understanding what your car AC needs to remain in the best condition possible. Arizona summers can be harsh, and in the worst months, it can be dangerous to go for long drives, especially if there are young children in the vehicle. We understand that our customers need to be able to trust that their vehicle’s AC will continue running strong, despite the weather. If you have any questions about what should be done for your vehicle, best keep your air conditioning running. Feel free to contact us and let us know what we can do for you. Our staff is standing by to make sure that you get the attention you need and that all your questions are answered.

Auto Repair and Maintenance
For many drivers in Phoenix, auto repair can be a great source of frustration. The fact that you can never pinpoint when something in your vehicle is going to fail can cause some discomfort. Generally, the vast majority of drivers are content to wait it out and deal with the problem when it surfaces. Here at AZ Master Mechanics, we want to help you get a handle on car repairs before they cause serious damage.
The only way to achieve this is through regular inspections and preventive car maintenance procedures conducted by a professional. With this tactic, you may find yourself needing very few car repairs. Another benefit is the ability to schedule a repair when it is convenient for you. Especially with major auto repairs, the cost can take many people by surprise and be a great source of frustration when the bill exceeds expectations.
It is for this reason that we recommend regular vehicles’ inspections, and scheduled maintenance procedures at prescribed mileage. The ability to prepare for these costs will save you the sudden shock to your finances, and your vehicle will retain the highest performance level possible. Even after several years, your vehicle will retain the highest resale value possible, and keep you driving in confidence.

Electrical Repairs Phoenix
For residents in Phoenix, auto electrical repair can take many forms. As a generality, it is important to remember that more and more of your vehicle systems are dependent on electricity, so making sure that the cars' electrical systems remain in good condition and good repair. In fact, auto electrical service is responsible for everything, from starting your vehicle to rolling up your windows and remotely unlocking the door. Though some of these things may seem like luxuries, others are simply impossible to ignore when they aren’t working properly.
At AZ Master Mechanics, we want our customers to have the confidence to fully rely on their vehicles, regardless of the situation. We have put together a few of the most important things to look out for when attending to auto electrical repair. If you pay attention to these things, you can expect that your vehicle will behave exactly as you anticipate
Making sure that your battery is in good condition is possibly the best starting point when it comes to auto electrical problems. Anything from low voltage to a faulty alternator can affect your battery first, then the electrical systems of your vehicle. Before replacing your battery, we suggest some preliminary troubleshooting to ensure that your money is well spent, and the issue is resolved.
The alternator is what allows the battery to recharge while you drive; this is important because otherwise, you would only be able to start your vehicle perhaps 12 times before it was time to purchase another. If the alternator has failed, you will find yourself unable to start your vehicle in a very short order.
A blown fuse can cause all manner of seemingly mysterious issues. Thankfully, replacing a fuse is often a simple matter of identifying the fuse and providing the correct replacement. These kinds of repairs are most often simple and quick.
These kinds of repairs are easily the most expensive kind of issues to encounter. In some cases, only several hours of troubleshooting can find the source of the issue and make the necessary repair. Luckily, the necessity for this kind of repair is rare, but it is the skill of our technicians alone that allows us to make these repairs faster, and with less cost to you.
At AZ Master Mechanics, we take great pride in the fact that our technicians have received the best training and retain certifications from the ASE. This means that our technicians have the knowledge and skills necessary to make sure that your vehicle gets the care it needs in a timely, professional fashion. We invite you to contact us if you have any questions about vehicle electrical problems. We will be glad to help you in any way that we can and give you the information that you need.
Transmission Repair Phoenix
Of all the things that a driver usually wishes to avoid, at the top of the list usually includes transmission repair. Phoenix has no shortage of less than reputable repair shops that will readily gut your transmission and charge a premium to put it back together again, but we see things differently at AZ Master Mechanics. The fact is major transmission service is usually avoidable if proper steps are taken to make the machinery last as long as possible.
Our stance is that with proper transmission maintenance, serious transmission repairs can be avoided until well into the life of the vehicle. The key here is making certain that the transmission receives the attention it needs, at all the proper times.
For example, Transmission fluid can easily be considered the lifeblood of your transmission. As long as the transmission fluid remains clean, it will provide the necessary lubrication and cooling effects that are required to keep the transmission in good health. This can sometimes be tricky because there is more to it than just adding a splash of fluid from time to time.
Proper Fluid Level
Maintaining the proper fluid level is step one for avoiding transmission problems. Too little fluid and the transmission can quickly heat up, causing the machinery to become more malleable. Bent gears cause rough shifting and can even allow tiny metal shavings to break off and be cycled through the transmission. Curiously enough, too much fluid has essentially the same effect, the only difference being that the fluid first froths up and becomes useless as a lubricant.
Transmission Fluid Filter
Over time, dirt and other contaminants will get inside your transmission and assault the gears directly. It is not difficult to imagine what happens to a finely tuned piece of machinery when sand is placed into the gears. The fluid filter of your transmission is what removes these contaminants and helps keep the fluid clean. If the filter is not changed at the prescribed time, the grime collected by the filter will simply be pushed back into the fluid.
Occasionally, completely changing the transmission fluid is necessary. There are two reasons for this. The first being that the fluid is subject to contamination through dirt, and the second being that the transmission will occasionally lose a small bit of metal from the gears which floats to the bottom of the fluid reservoir. Draining this reservoir is the only thing that can completely remove these bits of metal, and introduce new, clean fluid for lubricating and cooling the transmission.
Keeping up with transmission maintenance is what will allow you to keep your transmission healthy for many years. Though it is impossible to never conduct more serious transmission maintenance, it is possible to hold back the day when a more comprehensive service is required. We understand that our customers are interested in getting the most out of their vehicles, and we want to make that possible.
Contact us today if you need any information on what your vehicle needs. Our technicians are well trained and ready to keep you informed of everything that is needed for the health and longevity of your transmission.

Front End Alignment
For many drivers in Phoenix, vehicle alignment is one of the processes that often gets ignored in general maintenance and repair of your automobile. More often than not, this is due to the fact that most drivers simply do not consider vehicle alignment to be something that benefits their vehicles directly. The truth is that keeping your vehicle in alignment has a few very serious benefits that are a huge help in the long-term health of the vehicle. Understanding a little about what exactly a wheel alignment does is the key to knowing just how important it is for your vehicle. At AZ Master Mechanics, we want to help our customers get the most out of their vehicles by providing the information they need to make the proper decisions on the maintenance and repair of their vehicles. Below is a short list of benefits that your vehicle gains when it is in proper alignment.
When the wheels of your vehicle are not properly aligned, your engine is actually working overtime to achieve the same power. This, in turn, forces the engine to use more gasoline than usual to get you the same distance. Proper alignment of your wheels reduces the forces of friction and allows the wheels to turn with ease. This has a direct effect on the gas mileage of your vehicle and saves you money at the pump.
Tire Life Expectancy
Alignment issues are easily one of the greatest contributors to premature tire wear. By making sure that your wheel alignment is correct, you evenly distribute forces of friction and wear across all the tires evenly. This is the best way you can make sure your tires last for as long as possible. Whenever it crosses your mind, be sure to take a look at your tires; any uneven wear on the tires is a sure sign of alignment problems which should be taken care of as quickly as possible.
There are several things that contribute to the proper control and responsiveness of your vehicle. Alignment is one of the major contributors. The smooth ride and proper traction of your tires can only be achieved when the wheels are in proper alignment. If you notice a tendency for your vehicle to drift either to the left or right, or maintaining a straight course seems more difficult than usual, bring the vehicle in as soon as possible, and we'll get everything straightened out.
We understand that correcting the alignment of your vehicle is not something that drivers think about often. The fact that keeping your vehicle in proper alignment will save you a great deal of money, in the long run, is the real reason to correct alignment issues as quickly as possible. Not only will you save money at the gas pump, but your tires will serve you well for many years before needing replacement.
If you have any questions about what we can do for your vehicle, or you have questions regarding the benefits of a vehicle alignment, we invite you to contact us directly at 602-907-4686 and speak to any member of our staff. Setting up an appointment for alignment can decrease wait times and get you back on the road and back to business as quickly as possible.
