Auto A/C & Heating Services

If the breeze from those open windows just isn't cutting it, come by our shop in Awendaw, SC 29429 to get an expert opinion on what we can do to fix your auto A/C or heating problems. We offer affordable prices and guaranteed workmanship. Contact us at 843-849-9561, so we can help you drive in comfort.

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:

Air Conditioning
Have you been sweltering in your vehicle lately? Perhaps your car's air conditioner isn't functioning properly. At Coastal Automotive & Towing 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 Coastal Automotive & Towing. You can also call us at 843-849-9561 with any questions relating to your vehicle's air conditioner.

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 Coastal Automotive & Towing 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 Coastal Automotive & Towing today. The mechanics at Coastal Automotive & Towing 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 843-849-9561 or visit Coastal Automotive & Towing in Awendaw, SC 29429 for all your coolant system flush and fill needs.

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 Coastal Automotive & Towing 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 Coastal Automotive & Towing today. The mechanics at Coastal Automotive & Towing will thoroughly inspect your car's hoses; replace all worn hoses; and adjust the installed hoses.

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 843-849-9561 or visit Coastal Automotive & Towing today.

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 Coastal Automotive & Towing today.

Summerize Your Vehicle
It's important to prepare your car for the perils of summer - heat, dust, traffic jams - which increase the likelihood of a breakdown. At Coastal Automotive & Towing in Awendaw, our technicians can perform the necessary preventive maintenance to get your car ready for summer. These are some of the recommended services:

  • Check the battery
  • Change the fluids
  • Examine the belts and hoses
  • Check climate and coolant systems

  • Check the battery
  • Check the tires
  • Check wiper blades
  • Check fluids

    Needed a battery install as required by a professional as Advanced Auto said they couldn't do. Bought battery, called Coastal from Advanced Auto, and they got me in immediately and installed battery. Super professional, great service, and price was right. Highly recommended.

    I'm on vacation here until tomorrow and my "check engine" light came on yesterday. I took my vehicle to Coastal Automotive to have it checked out. They were GREAT! They spent about an hour diagnosing the problem, gave me good information, kept me informed and fixed the "problem", which turned out to be nothing major and didn't charge me for the time they spent on my vehicle. They are a professional group and I had a very pleasant experience there!

    I tried about a half dozen mechanics in the Mt. P area before I found Coastal. I won't go anywhere else now. Would have saved a load of money had I gone there first. Toby has worked on all of our vehicles (including a restoration project) and has done a great job.
