Any leads for a good Auto AC mechanic in GTA?

Hello, I have a 2016 LX Honda Civic and it is currently out of warranty. My car's AC has stopped throwing in cool air and This model has had a genuine issue with AC Condenser. So I wanted to get it checked with a known AC mechanic in Scarborough, Markham, Toronto area.

Also, I checked with iGarage and they don't work on ACs.


Please suggest leads if you know any. Thanks

You can try this place. They do all types of repairs but specialize in AC repair. They're not cheap but they will do a proper job.

I found a random dude from Kijiji and he “fixed” my ac issue. He said the gas must’ve leaked or something so he refilled it and it works. Probably a short term fix but it’s always a pain trying to fully fix ac issues so I was ok with it. Think I paid $150.

Has anybody used them for parts? I'm thinking of replacing a rad myself.

Their site https://www.radtechautorepair.ca/products-and-services says:
At The Radman, we sell wholesale parts to other garages, but we also carry a wide variety of radiators and air conditioning parts as well as new tires.
Hoping to find a place where you don't have to consider potential shipping damage and that the rad can be pressure tested before install.

You have the same year vehicle? And can you share his number?

No don’t have his number. He came to my workplace in Markham. Was flexible unlike others. I drive a TL.

Something was wrong with your condenser as well?

No idea. It wasn't blowing cold so I figured for $25 it was worth a shot. Your model is quite new so maybe there is a leak. If it's a small leak, you can just fill it up and use it. Maybe it will last you a year before you need to fill it again. R143A is not an ozone depleting chemical so I wouldn't worry about it leaking into the air.

This. Used the Red-Tek refridgerant from CT. Worked great for me and it was colder than when the car was new. If it doesn't work, it only cost you a few $$.
