You must take care of your cooling system just like an oil change in your vehicle too. Even some mechanics recommend running your air conditioner for at least 10 minutes a month.

What are the Causes of Compressor Failure?
This question is too complex to answer quickly, but one of the most common causes is a lack of A/C use. A compressor that is not used regularly will need extra lubrication once it is turned on, and this results in excessive wear. The vehicle’s A/C should be used weekly for a short time to avoid this. Other factors contributing to compressor failure are: failing to flush the system, excessively high or low pressure, using the wrong type of oil for the refrigerant, and using refrigerant blends. There is no quick or easy answer to this question, and any compressor problems are best diagnosed by a professional.
What About Refrigerant Leaks?
Even a tiny leak can affect performance, and many leaks are difficult to see with the naked eye. Daks Toyota has the technology to detect and fix leakages.
What's that musty odour I can smell coming from the air vents in my car and how can I get rid of it?
Under certain conditions, moulds and bacteria (normally present in the air) may form on the surface of the evaporator core, causing an unpleasant odour inside the vehicle. To prevent this from happening you can try turning off the air conditioning while leaving the blower running for a few minutes before the end of each journey. This will dry the moisture that encourages bacteria growth from the evaporator core. We can also fix the evaporator at Daks Toyota – please contact for details.
