Auto A/C & Heating Services

Are you wishing that your vehicle's heat or air conditioning was as efficient as it was when you first purchased it? North County Import Specialist in Vista, CA 92083 can get your vehicle's heating or A/C back to its original state, so you can drive in comfort.

Heating and AC systems may break eventually with usage, and hose pipes may clog and drip if not serviced, causing reduced efficiency heating and cooling capabilities. We can fix any problems you're experiencing and provide the regular maintenance necessary to keep your heating and A/C system operating at full 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

Our repair and maintenance services include:

Air Conditioning
Have you been sweltering in your vehicle lately? Perhaps your car's air conditioner isn't functioning properly. At North County Import Specialist 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 North County Import Specialist. You can also call us at 760-945-0266 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 760-945-0266 or visit North County Import Specialist in Vista, CA 92083 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 North County Import Specialist 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 North County Import Specialist today. The mechanics at North County Import Specialist 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 North County Import Specialist 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 North County Import Specialist today. The mechanics at North County Import Specialist 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 North County Import Specialist 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 760-945-0266 or visit North County Import Specialist today.

    -Terry P.

  • I have been taking my Honda to Glenn for years. I trust him completely. Every issue I've ever had has been resolved entirely. Very satisfied customer! I recommended him to my family and would say the same to anyone else who owns an import!
    -Jessee M.

  • I stopped in to check prices and scheduling. Prices are very good and I scheduled appointment for the next day. Upon arrival, I was greeted immediately and my service was completed in half an hour. I am very happy with every aspect of my experience and will be returning with my other vehicle. Good service, good price and good people. All I could ask for. Thanks.

    -Rebecca B.

  • I trust Glen with my car and cash! He's straight forward and honest about needed repairs without upselling, and his prices are fair. I always leave North County Imports with peace of mind that my car is at its best.
    -Tracey A.

  • I knew that when I met Glenn that I could trust him, not only as an honest person but a qualified mechanic. He has a wall of industry certificates to show his formal training and years of experience to complement that.
    -Martin M.

  • I have been going to North County Import Specialists for years. It is very comforting to know that Glenn (owner) and Art are honest (no upselling) and prices are fair. I trust them completely! My family and friends have expressed much gratitude to me for telling them about this terrific business. I agree with an earlier review -- service with the highest integrity!

  • Service with the highest integrity! I have never questioned a repair quote in all the years I have been taking my Toyota trucks to Glen and the crew. I hope they never change from what makes them stand out most, excellence in the basics!!
    -Curtis W.

  • Its hard to find an honest mechanic. But here you always know you are going to get an honest assessment and recommendation. I'm not going anywhere else. Thank you!
    -Janee H.

  • I'm glad I found NCIS. For years I've been using the car dealership for my car's service, but no more! This was my third visit and each time Glenn and his crew did a great job. There is no pressuring to sell. Very low key, honest service.
    -C. W.

  • Glenn and his group are an unbelievably honest and thorough group of mechanics. I took my car to Nissan slash Infiniti in Oceanside and was told I needed Brakes in the rear and brake fluid changed. I took it to Glen who is my regular mechanic and he said the brakes in the rear we're fine and the brake fluid had been flushed and added about seven thousand miles ago. The charge for this information - $0.
    -Michael P.

  • I tried to save money and not take Glens advice. Mistake. Ended up paying more. I love having a mechanic that I trust! He's always the one I'll take my car too.
    -Chris M.

  • Great place to take your car. Staff is very friendly and honest! Been going here for years.
    -Catherine M.

  • I had heard good things about North County Import Specialists, so I decided to take my car there and made an appointment. Their waiting room was nice and they had my (routine) service done in no time. I felt their prices were fair and the quality of work is excellent. I look forward to using them for all my car maintenance needs.
