Refrigerant is a key component of keeping your car cool in the heat. You should double-check your owner’s manual, but how much refrigerant your car needs is between 14 to 28 oz. So, a mechanic should be able to top off the freon levels with just one can of R-134a refrigerant.
Keep in mind that you can’t mozy into any store and get your own refrigerant. Due to environmental regulations, only a certified technician can purchase it.
Refilling your car’s refrigerant is a key part of your car’s routine maintenance—as is shopping for a new car insurance policy to make sure you’re not overpaying for the coverage you need. If you’d rather leave the hard part of doing this to someone else, you should shop with Jerry.
