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
Our repair and maintenance services include:
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 Latino's Auto Service & Repair, Inc. 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 Latino's Auto Service & Repair, Inc. today. The mechanics at Latino's Auto Service & Repair, Inc. will thoroughly inspect your car's belts; replace all worn belts; and adjust the installed belts.
Coolant System Flush
A car's coolant system transfers excess heat from one part of the engine and finally loses it through the radiator fins. With time, the 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 703-430-1840 or visit Latino's Auto Service & Repair, Inc. in Sterling, VA 20166 for all your coolant system flush and fill needs.
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 Latino's Auto Service & Repair, Inc. 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 Latino's Auto Service & Repair, Inc. today. The mechanics at Latino's Auto Service & Repair, Inc. will thoroughly inspect your car's hoses; replace all worn hoses; and adjust the installed hoses.
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 703-430-1840 or visit Latino's Auto Service & Repair, Inc. today.
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 Latino's Auto Service & Repair, Inc. today.

Owner Miguel of Latinos Auto is by far the most professional and accommodating mechanic that I have worked with in a very long time. I have worked with quite a few mechanics and car professionals during my time and Miguel is at the top of my list. Please allow me to explain. My 2016 Ford Expedition needed a complete engine replacement, but the challenge was that I had a warranty through Car Shield. If you ever had an auto warranty through a 3rd party then you will understand that nothing is easy and Car Shield is NOT an easy company to deal with. Matter of fact, I had taken my truck to two dealership and another garage and all three gave up dealing with Car Shield. One garage said they will not conduct work on any vehicles covered by Car Shield. I had the reached the end of my patience with Car Shield and was ready to just sell my truck to a junk yard when I saw a bright yellow and red sign LATINO AUTO on the street just down from another garage that gave up on me and Car Shield. From personal experience, i always find Latinos to be some of the hardest working people on the planet doing jobs that no one else wants to do so I figured that a place bearing the name LATINO Auto must be good. Upon meeting Miguel, it was evident that he was willing to work with me and most importantly with Car Shield. From when I first dropped off the vehicle to when it was finished took about 35 days...most of that time spent dealing and working with Car Shield. Every step of the way, Car Shield needed pictures, information, etc, etc..and Miguel patiently worked to send them everything they needed. It was as if Car Shield was hoping I would give up. However, I was determined to have Car Shield cover the engine replacement, but having the right mechanic was the important thing. Any other mechanic would have probably given up..but,not Miguel. Together, we both tagged team against Car Shield and after a drawn out process, Car Shield and I finally came to an agreement where about 2/3 of the cost for an engine replacement was covered by them. Once the new engine finally arrived, Miguel single handedly installed the new engine in less than 3 days. Now, my Expedition runs better than before all thanks to Miguel. If not for Miguel and his patience to deal with the many requirements by Car Shield, I would not be where I am today. I highly recommend Miguel for any and all of your automotive repairs. The fact that he was able to remove an old engine and replace it all by himself speaks to his expertise. Thank you Miguel for a job well done. Muchas Gracias my friend!. Ron P.
