    Default LF: Shop that will Flush Power Steering Fluid and Recharge AC

    I am looking for a shop that will flush my Power Steering Fluid. Please recommend a shop that does good work. I am looking to get this done soon because the fluid is quite dark.

    I am also looking to get the AC re-charged and/or get recommendations. The car takes quite sometime to cool down, my best guess is that it would be the AC that needs to be recharged.

    Thanks in advance for the helpful knowledge and tips!

    Make that 2, I am looking for a AC flush as well as a recharge.

    Many shops dont do this properly either, they just blow fluid through the entire system which will contaminate other parts.

    Flushing AC systems is not a maintenance item. It is only done when a compressor fails. When you have a compressor fail the whole system is full of metal shards not just some components.

    The only way to flush a AC system is with a solvent and a power flusher. It does not work that good. That is why the receiver/dryer, condenser, expansion valve or orifice tube get replaced and the lines and evaporator get flushed. On bad failures the evaporator should get replaced but flushing happens most of the time due to cost.
