Your truck or car's AC system is almost completely airtight, but your freon refrigerant is always slowly leaking out. Eventually, a car will lose enough freon so that its air conditioning system will no longer cool effectively. At Newman's Marathon at 525 North Main Street we are ready to recharge your AC to help you keep your car or truck's cabin temperature cool.
"Help My AC Only Blows Warm Air!"
New advancements in R134a freon systems means that freon in newer cars doesn't leak out as much as old R12 freon systems. The average new model economy car only leaks about 0.41 ounces of refrigerant per year. Come to Newman's Marathon in Bowling Green when it's time to recharge your AC freon.
Newman's Marathon's Fast 3 Step Process:
"Does Newman's Marathon Have R12 Freon For My Classic Car?"
- Vacuum out all the old refrigerant before refilling it.
- Add new R134a refrigerant.
- Pressurize your car's AC system and test for mico-leaks.
Unfortunately R12 freon is no longer available. If your car or truck was made before 1994 you must convert your entire AC system to the new R134a standard. This involves replacing dozens of seals and several AC auto parts. R134a is a more highly pressurized and much more efficient refrigerant pound for pound than R12. Most classic car AC compressors and condensers cannot withstand the intense pressure required and choose to add about 25% less freon to accommodate older systems. This means your AC may not cool as well as it used to. Converting your R12 system to R134a is a big job so stop by Newman's Marathon today and talk with our mechanics about getting the job done right. Visit us today at 525 North Main Street.
"Is Used Freon Ok?"
Many auto repair shops resell used AC refrigerant. The old freon is cleaned using a specialized recovery machine that removes contaminants. Used freon provided by Newman's Marathon works just as well as new freon after it's cleaned. Accepting used freon is a great way to help minimize the impact freon has on the environment.
Freon gas becomes a liquid when pressurized inside your car's A/C system but returns to its gaseous state as it leaks out. Many drivers in Bowling Green are completely unaware that they are losing freon until the day when they turn on the car's AC and find only warm air blows out. Call 419-353-1311 and ask any of our auto repair specialists about recharging your car's AC. Stop by our store at 525 North Main Street and we will show you the best AC recharging options for your car.

What People Say About Us
Always thorough and no one can beat their customer service. Love these guys.
Excellent service, do work on my time schedule. Consistent outstanding service.
Wonderful feeling of home town service and atmosphere. Very fair pricing on everything. All staff members are helpful and very knowledgeable and very personable.
I took my car here when I was having some trouble with the brakes. They let me know that there were some other serious issues with the car and, instead of pressuring me to pay them an arm and a leg to fix it and get my car back on the road, they were up front with me and let me know it probably wasn't worthwhile to fix what was essentially a lost cause. They were really friendly and helpful throughout our interactions and I will definitely seek out their services in the future.
I take my van to Newman's for service because I know, without a shadow of a doubt, that I will get good, honest care. The owner is local and has an excellent reputation. Their charges are fair and they communicate with you before going ahead with repairs. I recommend them all the time.
