Auto A/C & Heating Services

If the breeze from those open windows just isn't cutting it, come by our shop in Asheville, NC 28804 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 828-658-3030, 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 Jimmy's Automotive Center 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 Jimmy's Automotive Center. You can also call us at 828-658-3030 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 828-658-3030 or visit Jimmy's Automotive Center in Asheville, NC 28804 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 Jimmy's Automotive Center 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 Jimmy's Automotive Center today. The mechanics at Jimmy's Automotive Center 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 Jimmy's Automotive Center 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 Jimmy's Automotive Center today. The mechanics at Jimmy's Automotive Center 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 Jimmy's Automotive Center 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 828-658-3030 or visit Jimmy's Automotive Center 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 Jimmy's Automotive Center in Asheville, 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

    TJ and Jimmy's Automotive are fantastic! TJ is always very helpful when I take our 12 year old van in for service. On my last visit he went above and beyond and I am extremely grateful. Thank you, TJ, and go SC State Bulldogs!


  • -Erin O.

    I continue to be blown away by the service, prices, and positive demeanor of the employees at Jimmy's. This is the first time I have EVER written a review about anything and its because I feel obligated to write about quality like this. Mom & Pop shops and common human courtesy are a thing of the past in Corporate America, so experiences like I continue to have at Jimmy's are very refreshing to me! Go see for yourself! You won't be disappointed.


  • -Lynn C.

    My husband and I have been customers of Jimmy's Automotive since we moved to Weaverville. They run a well oiled business (pun intended). They are so professional. They treat me as a woman with respect and never look down on me for all my crazy questions! They have even helped us with printing off invoices for our taxes!! TJ is amazing! You should take all your auto troubles to Jimmy's!!


  • -Lisa G.

    Our family has been coming to Jimmy's for years. We have three vehicles and have taken them all to Jimmy's for maintenance and repairs. TJ and Brian are so helpful & friendly. They go out of their way to accommodate! We have had some major repairs done over the years but when these guys are done the problem is fixed-they really know what they are doing! I highly recommend the mechanics at Jimmy's.


  • -Wanda G.

    ...Waiting room is CLEAN; internet service is available, so I could check email and facebook while I waited and Brian was very friendly and helpful as I checked out. I am so GLAD and RELIEVED to have them near by for help and service!


  • -Teri N.

    Having recently moved to NC, and having had the most wonderful mechanic for over the past 20 years in my old hometown, my husband and I wanted to find a garage we could trust. We seem to have found it at Jimmy's! They are AAA approved and came with lots of recommendations from others we have met. We have had to take two of our cars there for repairs within the last couple weeks, and we found TJ to be very friendly and helpful. Before any work was done, he explained the cars' issues and what the cost would entail (which was also very reasonable). He talked with us as if we were long time customers, and with a respect that indicated he appreciated our business. Both of our cars turned out to be emergency situations, and Jimmy's was able to fit us in and get the work done asap. Wonderful garage! Highly recommended!


  • -Julianne A.

    I love this shop because they are honest. I had engine mounts replaced a bit over a year ago and the car was starting to shake again. They told me the warranty had expired for the mounts, but that mounts should last longer than a year and they picked up the cost of parts and labor to put 3 new ones in. I know nothing about cars and I didn't ask them to pay for it. They offered because they take pride in their work, want to do right by people, and have a business model based on providing exceptional, honorable service. They have been keeping my 2005 Mazda 3 road worthy for three years now and I couldn't be happier.


  • -JD G.

    ...Great service, professional in every sense yet very personable. When I came in for the service, I mentioned I was starving and hadn't eaten breakfast and I was told about a local diner. They didn't have to tell me, but they genuinely care about their customers. Give them the opportunity to earn your trust and your business. You won't regret it!


  • -Carolyn S.

    In the 15 years that Jimmy has serviced my cars, I have had not one complaint. They are always honest as to what is needed and discuss the cost before they do any extensive repairs. I really appreciate their professionalism. I recommend them highly!!!


  • -Dennis M.

    Got inspected in no time, without an appointment. Great shop.


  • -Anonymous

    I've taken a few vehicles here for alignment. Done correctly and on time.


  • -George Z.

    Brian & T.J. answered all my questions and where helpful in explaining what needed to be done on my Saturn. Both T.J. and Brian now and in the past explained what need to be done. I have confidence in your technicians to resolve problems with my car. We have confidence in your auto center to repair put us back on the road with a safe car for our family. From beginning to end thank you for your quality service.


  • -Brad F.

    I moved here from Southeastern PA almost three years ago. A neighbor recommended Jimmy's to me when I need a car inspection. Best advice I have gotten since moving here. Very easy to work with, honest and good service too.


  • -George K.

    It was found that I needed more work. I was given a ride home and picked up later that day.


  • -Happy Camper

    We have been very satisfied with the service and care Jimmy's has given us. We have been going to them for about three years and have had two cars serviced consistently over that time. We appreciate that they only do the work that is necessary. They have provided loaner cars for us as needed too.


  • -Dan C.

    I have been going to Jimmy's for the last four years. I am always very satisfied with the professional work and their customer service is exceptional.


  • -Bryan Y.

    Very friendly and fast service. I highly recommend them if you need auto repair in Asheville


  • -Jim S.

    I'm a new loyal customer - Best auto repair experience since moving to Asheville 8 years ago. My 2004 GMC Envoy needed new A/C compressor assembly. Expensive item, but I trusted Brian's knowledge and "no pressure" style explaining my options. In fact, I found the entire staff to be professional, friendly and proud of their excellent reputation - Keep up the good work, guys!


  • -Toni

    Nice people and efficient service. I had expensive repairs, but they made it as painless as possible. I was unable to get estimates from other shops, so I don't know if their prices are comparable to other shops or not. But they took the stress out of my experience and that is valuable. The loaner car was a tremendous help. I wasn't inconvenienced while waiting for repairs. They only did repairs I authorized but did give me a list of repairs I may need later.


  • -Bud S.

    A first class operation in all respects. They go out of their way to be helpful in providing needed information. The quality of their work has always been 4-5 stars.
