R1234YF AC Recharge Service in Walnut Creek, CA

Frank’s Auto Service, the premier Walnut Creek auto repair shop provides superior auto repair and maintenance. We continue to expand our services, and we are pleased to announce that we have added the latest auto a/c refrigerant R-1234yf recharge service at our Walnut Creek auto repair facility.

Standard on many new vehicles, the R-1234YF refrigerant is considered more friendly to the environment than R-134a, its predecessor. The R-1234YF refrigerant refill requires new equipment and additional training so Frank’s Auto Service is one of only a handful of independent repair shops in the entire Bay Area to offer this service. Naturally we continue to offer the R-134a refill service as well, so no matter what refrigerant is used by your vehicle, you can bring it to us and we will be able to perform air conditioning recharge service your car requires.

If you wonder if your vehicle requires the new refrigerant, you can find the answer in the owner’s manual that came with your vehicle. There are many designations for the new refrigerant – we list them below- but the common pattern to look for is the presence of “1234” in the name. Here is a list of various designations you might find in the owner’s manual – they all refer to the new refrigerant:

HFO-1234-YF, HFO1234YF, HFO-1234, R1234, R-1234-YF, R1234YF, YF-1234, YF1234

Naturally, at Frank’s Auto Service in Walnut Creek we offer not only R1234YF service, but a complete range of auto air conditioning services and repairs. Whether your vehicle’s a/c is blowing warm air, or not working at all, we can help. Our technicians, certified by the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) can diagnose and repair any problem your vehicle’s ac system may experience – refrigerant leaks, blower motor problems, ac compressor issues, ambient temperature sensor failure, ac evaporator replacement – whatever ails your vehicle’s a/c system, we will get it fixed.

When it comes to the new refrigerant – it’s not only the chemical itself that is environmentally friendly. The new equipment we purchased is also designed to be great to the environment. It’s equipped with different fittings, to make it easy to avoid cross-contamination with the old refrigerant. Additionally, it has separate tanks for R134a and R-1234YF refrigerants, so there is no danger of cross-contamination.

So when your vehicle needs R1234YF service, or if it faces other problems, bring it to our Walnut Creek garage – we offer a friendly welcome, clean, modern facility, as well as:

  • Local shuttle for your convenience
