Auto A/C & Heating Services

Are you wishing that your vehicle's heat or air conditioning was as efficient as it was when you first purchased it? OTA Auto Care in Lanoka Harbor, NJ 08734 can get your vehicle's heating or A/C back to its original state, so you can drive in comfort.

Heating and AC systems may break eventually with usage, and hose pipes may clog and drip if not serviced, causing reduced efficiency heating and cooling capabilities. We can fix any problems you're experiencing and provide the regular maintenance necessary to keep your heating and A/C system operating at full 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 OTA Auto Care 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 OTA Auto Care. You can also call us at 609-242-1146 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 609-242-1146 or visit OTA Auto Care in Lanoka Harbor, NJ 08734 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 OTA Auto Care 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 OTA Auto Care today. The mechanics at OTA Auto Care 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 OTA Auto Care 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 OTA Auto Care today. The mechanics at OTA Auto Care 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 OTA Auto Care 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 609-242-1146 or visit OTA Auto Care 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 OTA Auto Care in Lanoka Harbor, 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

  • -Ed F.

    The crew at OTA have been servicing my 2002 Tacoma since the warranty expired 13 years ago, and they always do a professional job for a reasonable price. This time, I was due for an oil change, and since the truck is 16 years old, Jeff suggested I replace the timing belt even though I still have low miles on the truck. I got a thorough rebuild of the front of my engine including a new coolant pump, belts, and hoses. The price was less than I expected, and the truck runs great.


  • -Brian B.

    OTA has provided good customer service for us for several years, on several vehicles we owned. They never try to sell you anything unnecessary. The quality of the work is always the best.

    OTA did a great job when I had a problem with a set of Goodyears I purchased 2 years ago. they stepped up and handled the problem and provided a loaner car for me. Not even a car dealer will do that! They are winners and know what customer care is about. Once again, good job.

  • -Margo J.

    OTA has been repairing my car since I moved to New Jersey some years ago, and I have never had an issue with my car after it was serviced by OTA. I trust them implicitly to do the necessary repairs that they recommend when I bring my car in for servicing. They often go above and beyond what is obvious and repair things I may not be aware of. I drive away from their facility knowing my car is in the best shape possible for safe driving. I am pleased to write this review to thank them for their honesty and expertise in auto repair.


  • -Chuck R.

    Definitely the best automotive shop there is. Have been a customer for about 15 years and wouldn't go anywhere else. Even with the specials a new car dealer throws at us, we still would rather go to OTA. Highly knowledgeable, professional, quick with appointments and turn arounds. Staff treats customers like family.


  • -Kristyn S.

    Finally, a repair shop you can trust. I have an old Buick, went to ANOTHER PLACE and was told it would cost almost $2,000 needing a radiator, etc. A friend suggested I try OTA. Not only did I not need a radiator, but they fixed it for $213.00. Amazing! I'll never go anywhere else!!!


  • -Stefania J.

    Someone recommended I go to OTA, and as soon as I got there, someone went for a ride in my truck, listened to the problem and got my truck in the same day to fix it. My truck is running great and problems are fixed!! Very happy with their services. Thank you guys!!


  • -Hillary W.

    We moved here last year and have brought both cars to OTA for maintenance. Today we found ourselves at a deserted Gille Park, in the rain, with 2 kids, a dog and a big old dead battery. Joe from OTA ran up and gave us a jump, totally going out of his way to be friendly and helpful. Thank you, Joe and OTA. We will be in this week, and your customer service, helpfulness, and expertise have made us customers for life! Thank you!!!


  • -Jarred T.

    Great people, great service, and they have been helping out my family for years.


  • -Lou F.

    If you take your vehicle to another service shop, you've made a mistake. Great people, fast service, and the prices are second to none.


  • -Val H.

    Excellent customer service and reasonable prices! Thank You!


  • -Manny G.

    I was recommended by my best friend's girlfriend to go to OTA, because they are honest mechanics and will get the job done. And that's the truth. The top end of my engine had to be redone, and they fixed other little things with my car that I didn't even know about! They're really great people, and I will never take my car anywhere else!


  • -Thomas F.

    I first went there because he did a favor for my daughter. He spent about an hour tracking a tire down at another center. He would not accept anything for his time. Jeff is now a friend and he cares.
