We offer affordable prices and guaranteed workmanship. Contact us at 651-635-9890, so we can help you drive in comfort.

Why maintaining your AC System is very important:
Heating and A/C systems may break eventually with usage, hose pipes may clog and drip if not serviced, causing reduced efficiency heating and cooling capabilities. Regular maintenance will keep your AC system operating at peak 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

Air Conditioning
Have you been sweltering in your vehicle lately? Perhaps your car's air conditioner isn't functioning properly. At Foster's Advanced Auto Service 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 Foster's Advanced Auto Service. You can also call us at 651-635-9890 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 651-635-9890 or visit Foster's Advanced Auto Service in New Brighton, MN 55112 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 Foster's Advanced Auto Service 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 Foster's Advanced Auto Service today. The mechanics at Foster's Advanced Auto Service 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 Foster's Advanced Auto Service 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 Foster's Advanced Auto Service today. The mechanics at Foster's Advanced Auto Service 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 Foster's Advanced Auto Service 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 651-635-9890 or visit Foster's Advanced Auto Service today.

Testimonials

  • Great service, fair prices. They are VERY willing to work with YOUR schedule to make it convenient for you! I?ve already been recommending them!
    -Paula R.

  • Loved the pleasant people working there and they did a quick and quality of a job on my jeep. Very trustworthy and honest.
    -Danielle R.

  • I went in for a routine oil chnage and came out over a K lighter with new brakes all around as well as wheel bearings up front. I knew the brakes were weak, but I didn?t realize how bad. So, why am I not displeased? A technician showed me the rotors and break pads. I had no brakes. Were I not to have them repaired, I would have needed to sign a document indicating I was informed and releasing the company of liability. So, I had the work done and followed the process. What I bought was not only a totally new brake system, but peace-of-mind and absolute confidence that the work was done by the absolute best technician, I must also note that I was treated with comfort and respect through the entire experience. I absolutely trust these people.
    -T.J. W.

  • These guys are the best type of mechanics you can wish for. They are honest and trustworthy. They tell you what needs fixed and do not make you get unnecessary repairs. As a woman who has gotten ripped off by many mechanics in Mpls, I can honestly recommend these guys. They do high quiality work. I am very pleased with the friendly and complete service they provide. I would recommend them to my friends and family anytime. Keep up the good work guys !
    -Wanda K.

  • Needed new shocks and struts for the wife?s car and got a same-day appointment. I had a lower estimate elsewhere prior to coming in, and Foster?s Advanced told me they?d beat it by $50 and get me in and out in one day. They delivered and were great to work with. This is the kind of place I can feel comfortable recommending to others. They deliver what they promise and don?t try to push services you don?t need.
    -Kraig & Lisa

  • I arrived a bit early and yet they still fit me into the schedule and out of there ahead of time. I always receive fast, knowledgeable and friendly service that I can afford. I recommend coming here to all of my co-workers and friends.
    -Vicki K.

  • I have had two car repairs done at Foster?s Advanced Auto Service within the last few weeks, and I have 3 very positive things to report. First of all ? they saved me money, actually saved around $800 from an estimate I had gotten from the car dealer. Second ? they are trustworthy, and keep their word. Even stuck to an original estimate when the work ended up taking longer than planned for. Third ? and very important to me, they are ?Real? people ? made me feel welcome, and comfortable right off the bat, and I really prefer dealing with real people over a ?corporation?. Yup great place to do business!
    -Franky L.

  • I needed to get new brakes and the guys at Foster?s Advanced Auto Service bent over backwards to make it happen. They gave me and my daughter a ride back home while they worked on my vehicle and offered to stay late til I could come back and pick it up. The guys were so nice and really seemed to appreciate my business. The cost was extremely reasonable compared with the price quote I received from other places. I would recommend them to my friends for sure
