Recharge The AC Freon In Your Car Or Truck

McClure's Garage & Towing


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 McClure's Garage & Towing at 4409 Old Grand Ave 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 McClure's Garage & Towing in Gurnee when it's time to recharge your AC freon.

McClure's Garage & Towing's Fast 3 Step Process:
  • Vacuum out all the old refrigerant before refilling it.
  • Add new R134a refrigerant.
  • Pressurize your car's AC system and test for mico-leaks.
"Does McClure's Garage & Towing Have R12 Freon For My Classic Car?"

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 McClure's Garage & Towing today and talk with our mechanics about getting the job done right. Visit us today at 4409 Old Grand Ave.

"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 McClure's Garage & Towing 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 Gurnee 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 847-662-1050 and ask any of our auto repair specialists about recharging your car's AC. Stop by our store at 4409 Old Grand Ave and we will show you the best AC recharging options for your car.

The nicest guys! I've took my car due to a flat tire and was very pleased with promptness and very reasonable with pricing. Recently I took it in due to low pressure in one of my tires and they checked all of my tires and filled them up with air. Great customer service! I always refer people to McClures now! Thanks guys!

Haven't ever purchased tires before and really dreaded doing so. Told Matt, at McClure's, I needed help. He gave me 2 quotes, high and low end. I, then, did a lot of research locally, shopped Costco, also tried purchasing thru Amazon, and having someplace local install tires. McClure's was the best quote. I called Matt back on Friday, set appointment for 9am Monday. My son met me at McClure's at 9am. Matt said about an hour, son & I went out for breakfast, Matt called at 10:07, car was ready for pick up. Cost was below what was quoted. McClure's made what I expected to be a nightmare experience a very comfortable experience. They will be my go to garage for all car needs. Nice feeling to know I've found trustworthy people.
